V

Good or Bad?

I watched only 5 minutes and couldn't help but think of the 80s version.

Diana versus Anna? Long hair or short hair, what is your preference?

I loooooved the original, and enjoyed watching the rerun of it on the Sci-Fi channel Sunday night.

Enjoyed the premiere of the new one - looking forward to watching more!

Diana FTW. Anna lacks that 80s bitchy quality.

i'm undecided after the first show.. need more shows to rule it out or not.. Kinda cheesy was my first impression however them using Uprising as music for the ads for it made me

I watched the new version the other night. I actually thought it was pretty good.

I have the original V on DVD somewhere. Might have to dig that one out again for a good laugh.

I had a huge crush on Diana. I always thought her lizard tongue would work to my advantage.

Oh absolutely. Diana pwns all.

It's clearly a modernized version of the old V, or at least it seems to be so far. I'm curious to see how well the characters develop; in the original V the villains in particular were really hateable, from supreme bitch Diana, to Donovan's Mom, to that little bastard traitor kid (Daniel?), to Donovan's converted son. But I'm definitely going to watch it, and I hope it doesn't get canned before they finish it.

Does anybody remember if the original was on ABC too? I think it was...I was in middle school at the time and as I recall just about everybody watched both V and V: The Final Battle, and it was all the talk the next day at school.

And then the TV series, too!

Pretty sure it was on ABC.

I had the "tie-in" book based on the miniseries - I read that sucker so many times! It had some scenes that weren't in the miniseries, and that was always curious to me.

I had a bunch of movie tie-in books to 80s movies: Back to the Future, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and they all had extra scenes. I wonder if the books were based on earlier versions of scripts, with stuff that didn't end up in the final movie.

Anyway ...

I watched it and I didn't hate it so there's that... there are a lot of actors in this show who I recognize from somewhere but I can't figgure out what I've seen them in before.
