    I am soooo looking forward to this but I am not quite sure about the choice of Scott Wolf to play the part of the reporter. The part was originally played by Marc Singer who could not be more different. Actually I probably would still prefer to see him in the role rather than Wolf, even though Singer is now 61. :lol: The new invasion starts this tuesday and I hope it sticks around for a while. I am getting tired of all these sci-fi shows being cancelled after the first season. hehehehe

    Th SyFy station (I hate that they changed the spelling - too cutsey) is replaying the original V miniseries this weekend. I'm taping it for nostalgic purposes before I strap in for this new version! :)

    I wish I had the SyFy station because I would totally be watching that original series! I am really looking forward to this new show and hope it doesn't suck...

    That's probably why I don't remember it. I didn't have much time for TV back then :lol:. I think the promos look interesting, hope the show lives up to them.

    I have my KKPsi meetings Tuesdays at 7:30. Is this going to show online anywhere? I have to stay loyal to my Firefly ex-cast members, especially since Morena has such a great role!

    ABC usually has their programs available for viewing on their website so I would check there first. It wouldn't surprise me to see it on Hulu or something like that pretty quickly too. :)

    I cannot WAIT for this show! :D I've been anxious to see it ever since the promos started leaking out earlier this summer and I can't believe the premiere is coming up in just a few days. I'm more than ready for it! :biggrinbo

    BTW-What time is the original series airing on SyFy today? I might have to check that out tonight, not that I need to get hyped up any more for this show, LOL :lol:

    You can watch the first eight minutes of V on this website

    I saw an extended premiere (I think the one HeatherC just linked to) a few days ago and it looks AWESOME! Can't wait!!!

    Buzz, Marc Singer was the face of the original, but I'm trying to let go of comparisons. I like Scott Wolf well enough, but for me Elizabeth Mitchell will be more of the center of the new series. And I LOVE Morena Baccarin as Anna (named Diana in the original).

    And I'm sure ABC will offer the most recent 5 eps on hulu, so anyone who misses can catch up.

    I am hoping that the series hits the right balance between big special effects and a good story line with lots of character building

    Just saw an ad and it starting here on Thursday.

    I remember the original series. I guess the special effects (lizard humans etc) are going to be more realistic. :scream:

    I thought the original was stupid. I hated it. On the bright side, it had Robert Englund, who was the best part of that series. (And we all know how his career turned out afterwards).

    Here is hoping the remake is better.

    Hello? Jane Badler as DIANA, the hottest villain evah. I loved V, I had the entire series on vhs which I diligently recorded every week.

    Marc Singer is a hottie, he should still come back.

    I loved the early 80s tv shows.

    80s big hair!! Sigh. I was certain we'd have shuttles to fly around like those by now.

    Thanks for the heads up. I didn't realize SyFy was going to show the original series and I would have missed it.

    I've been watching the original off and on today and it's so awesomely cheesy! I don't remember all the details from the originals but I'm still enjoying this little trip down memory lane. :D I love having another chance to see it and I'm SO excited for the new show. Just a few days away now!! :biggrinbo

    I caught some of it on SyFy just now. It seems kind of cool keeping in mind that this was filmed in the 80's. I hope the series can live up to the original!

    No wonder I missed it last week! WTF, don't they want people to watch the show? I'm too busy (today at home sick, so, um except today) to be following it's changing schedule. Haterz.

    World Series last week and this ... FOX has had the contract from the past few years. Game 1 was last Wednesday night, Game 6 will be this Wednesday. If there needs to be a Game 7, that will be Thursday .... and then it will be over for another year. Ratings have been up quite a bit after 4-5 years of decline, so I guess FOX is happy.
