He, Johnson, is trying to get a big screen revival of his own going.
Time to bring him back, at least in a consulting mode. Because she is sinking and taking in water quick.

Doubtful. As stated, he's supposedly trying to get his own "V" flying, with members of the original cast.

The original cast seems committed to this horrid incarnation. The producers better do something fast before the show is axed

I must confess I have not had the time to see any of the new episodes. I did enjoy the original, even when they strayed from the themes of the miniseries and got hoakie. Sometimes that kind of thing is great to watch on a Friday night after a long week. I did like the miniseries theme of tying in the holicost of World War II by having the aliens round up all the scientists and throwing in the idea that some people were hiding them while others were turning these scientists in and siding with the aliens. It was an interesting and frightening way of dealing with that subject and gave the stories a bit more urgency and realism than some of the later stuff they did. I noticed later the series was dedicated to freedom fighters everywhere.
By the time the weekly series was on it was mostly chases and mice eating. And Howard K Smith news updates, which were interesting...except when the goofed and referred to my home town as having been around during the Civil War (founded in the late 1800's).
My other V memory is running across one of the saucers at Disneyworld in the mid 1990's. This one was about 18" across...funny looked bigger on TV!

The woman who played Diana(Jane Badler)has been asking for a cameo and I believe that saw Marc Singer in some of the previews.Series' executive producer Scott Peters has suggested that Badler and other stars from the original version may be offered guest roles as new characters in the future. I would like to give them my suggestion and move on to do other things. They are wasting their time in this endeavor.

I'm two for two so far, liking it. And I loved the original.

When does Morena Baccarin eat a rat? They simply must pay homage.

This new remake is extremely boring. It looks like they were in rather in a hurry to rush it out. It sould be called "V" Lite. Less Filling, Less Calories

You'd still like to see her eat a rat, wouldn't you?
