It'll never be the same. Fingers crossed it's entertaining, though. 'Battlestar' was a remake that worked, so there's always hope.

Let us know what it's like.

Thanks for reminding us buffalogirl! I have the original on dvd which I bought for my husband, and never got around to watching it. He watched the whole thing. I don't know about a re-make. Let's hope it's good.

The original V movies and series are some of my favorite tv programming of all time. I was excited when I learned of this remake, or whatever it is. My expectations cannot and will not be even close to the original series. I'll just take it for what it is and try to enjoy it!

They actually did run all the original V movies and tv series on TV Land a few years back, only once though. I agree that it should be on more often. You can buy them all on dvds too.

I watched some of the original on Syfy off and on yesterday. I didn't remember a lot of it. It had the blonde lady- who my husband loved when he was a kid. He called her "the hot blonde chick" lol.

I thought it was a bit of a let-down. I'll keep watching though. My expectations were too high I guess. The original was so good that I should have not expected this to come close to it. Oh well....

A few actors looked familiar. The lead actress for the V leader was in the "Stargate SG-1" show I watched. The woman cop is in the show "Lost". The priest was in the Speilberg series, "Taken". See the pattern? They all worked in Sci-fi before.

Devolution here,

I thought it was good, they just jumped in a bit differently. They had to, the entire concept of technology never existed in the original series. The woman leader was the escort from the TV show "Firefly'. Short hair now though. I have been revisiting the first V. It's great. But this one has potential. I'll save the spoilers.
