First Look: V remake poster and videos

v full castI remember when I was a kid waiting in front of the TV for the next installment of V to start. The show was creepy, a mix of monster movie horror and scifi.

  • Who are the Visitors?
  • Why are they here?
  • What do they really want?

As soon as the cast was named for the remake of V, all of that childhood excitement flashed through me again.

ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson says his network's remake of the 1980s miniseries "V" could consist of four seasons, planned in advance, each with 13-22 episodes each. The show is planned for midseason (The Live Feed).

I cannot wait for the midseason!

The Visitors' Arrival

I love the idea that the Visitors use their ships as giant screens to broadcast their message to the people of the earth.

Morena Baccarin makes for a brilliant voice of God broadcasting the Visitors' message.  Creepy and nice.

The Power of Opportunity

I love how Morena manipulates the journalist to get her way.

I can't wait to see the series.  I only hope is has a strong West Wing-style political intrigue element.

I have been on the fence about the V remake, but I have to warn you, I have chosen a side!

The Visitors of ABC's V reboot have found their leader, and her face is familiar to sci-fi fans. Morena Baccarin (aka Firefly's Inara and Stargate SG-1's Adria) has landed the lead role of Anna, the frontwoman for Earth's very special guests, says the Hollywood Reporter. Previously announced V castings include Scott Wolf and Morris Chestnut (Fanstasy SF Blog).

The addition of Morena to any series is a great way to to get my attention and the very notion of her as a evil reptilian alien from beyond the stars manipulating the ussupecting people of earth into a false sense of security as she plans the invasion and conquest of earth makes me a little (I admit it, a lot) giddy about this.

I suppose I need to set up feeds and paying attention now.
