    Gay they should have left the original alone...it was 80's, cheesy, and perfect for the time. I remember being way into that series when I was 13.

    I was too scared to watch that show when it was on.
    Wish hollywood would just leave some shows/films alone, they are never better than the originals.

    +1, i can remember watching it as a kid and being totaly addicted to it. the Sci-Fi channel recently re-ran it over here in the u.k. and it was still every bit as good as i remembered it....although i do still have an 80's mindset, my kids hated it though and laughed at the special effects.

    I'm going to give this one a try.

    I was skeptical about Battlestar Galactica - however, the remake is one of THE BEST TV shows ever. Absolutely brilliant.

    If 'V' can be 75% of what BSG was - I'll be fine w/ it.

    Quality 80's cheese sci-fi. I remember watching it and thinking it was cool way back then.

    Marc Singer, who starred in the original 1980s sci-fi miniseries V and subsequent spinoffs, told SCI FI Wire that he would love to take part in ABC's upcoming re-imagined series, which is slated to debut after January 2010.

    Singer played reporter Mike Donovan in the original miniseries, about an invasion of apparently benign aliens who turn out to be sinister lizard creatures with a nefarious agenda.

    The new V is a re-imagining, about the world's first encounter with an alien race in which the aliens call themselves the Visitors and have a seemingly friendly agenda that may or may not be a cover for something more malevolent. The new show stars Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans, Morris Chestnut as Ryan Nichols, Joel Gretsch as Father Jack Landry, Lourdes Benedicto as Valerie Stevens, Logan Huffman as Tyler Evans and Laura Vandervoort as Lisa, with Morena Baccarin as Anna and Scott Wolf as Chad Decker.

    The series is produced by HDFilms in association with Warner Brothers Television. Scott Peters is executive producer/writer, and Steve Pearlman and Jason Hall are executive producers. The pilot was directed and executive-produced by Yves Simoneau.



    For someone who was a major part of the original series in all its forms, I'm dying to know what you think of V returning to television.

    Singer: I think a good story can always be retold, and I think it is a good story. I think its relevance is as powerful today as it was then. The same forces of subversion and the same sort of fascist tendencies are afoot, and I think it's a cautionary tale that bears retelling.

    Everyone who watched the original show knows the ending. Do you think it can work even with that knowledge?

    Singer: Well, I do. ... I don't know if they will keep the original ending or perhaps modify it. I think it's more in the telling of the tale of society being subverted. And society being wooed into channels that are disruptive and dumbed down. I believe that those are the ways in which the story's retelling sort of supersedes that plot line, because it's the human interaction. It's the failings and dangers of our own nature that lie at the heart of this story.

    Last time I spoke to Robert Englund [who played Willie in the original series], he said he'd like to do a cameo in the new series. Would you be interested in doing one?

    Singer: Oh, sure. I think it would be fun to do a cameo. I think it would be fun to do more than a cameo and see where that leads us. The nice thing about a program like V is that it's open to all sorts of add-ons and interpretations. The possibilities are definitely there. I am certainly an admirer and friend of Kenneth Johnson, so it's possible that that sort of thing might actually occur.

    According to the Sun Sentinel's Tom Jicha, tonight's premier will be followed by three episodes. The show will then inexplicably be taken off the air and will be brought back sometime next year.
