I wonder how the ratings for SYTYCD are compared to teh summer seasons :shuffle:
Just started and so far so good! :cheer2:

I agree! I love it so far. :biggrinbo
Hey! They change the name of the chief villain from Diana to Anna. Bummer But there are a lot of similarities with the previous show.

Sainted Mother of Barbara Stanwyck, that is one TASTY priest. :saint:

It was really good, but if you'd never watched the original, you'd probably have trouble keeping up. They compacted most of the first mini-series into one hour.

Elizabeth Mitchell is :kickass:, Anna is :yikes:, and I heart Father Jack in a huge way. I'm glad he's only playing a priest on TV because that actor is all kinds of adorable, LOL :lol: :swoon:
Seriously.....this may be the COOLEST.SHOW.EVER. :D I am so sucked in all ready and I think this series is going to be one great ride. That was definitely worth the wait and I can't wait to see what's coming up next week! :biggrinbo
I think they tried to do too much in that one hour but other than that it was great! Loved it! :cheer2: Here's hoping the tv station keeps "V" alive for a loooong time, even though it is more expensive than a reality show. LOL

There are only 4 episodes this time. They're doing them 4 mini-blocks at a time.

Sorry, fans but that was one boring hour - not in any way worth the wait. Have fun watching, but I will most definitely not be tuning in again.

IIRC, it's airing a four episode block now and the remaining nine episodes after the Olympics. I don't really like that it's broken up that way but hopefully it works out for ABC. The show has a ton of potential and deserves a chance to find its audience. I've talked to a few friends on other boards and they all liked it tonight too. :)
emason-Sorry you didn't like it. I'm not sure how you thought it was boring but to each his own. I'm glad you gave it a shot tonight.

This article (http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2009-11-03-V03_CV_N.htm?poe=HFMostPopular)describes some of the production issues that resulted in the first arc being shortened from 6 to 4 episodes which compacted the story a bit.

I was busy and only had half an eye on it. Very interesting premise, but I thought the execution could have been a little bit better. But it's early yet. I was pretty intrigued by the guy -- what was his name? -- who was going to propose to his girlfriend and turned out to be one of the aliens.
I found the pacing and editing forced. I'm hoping that it will improve once they stop trying to force several hours of the original series into 1 hour.
