I’ve started to watch the new TV show, “V”. What? “V”. Huh? What’s it called? “V! The letter ‘V’, as in VICTOR.”
That’s the conversation that I had several times at work the other night. Not only had no one heard of it, but I’m surprised at the number of people who don’t remember the original show from 1983. Was it a TV series or a mini-series? I don’t remember. I was only a kid, but even *I* remember watching the lizard visitors come to Earth. And a pair of human-visitor twins… one human looking one with a lizard tongue. One lizard looking one with a human tongue… Yup. The things the mind remembers. Now if only I could remember where I put my car keys in the morning. What’s up with that?
I’ve only seen 2 episodes so far. I’m not sure how many have aired, but that’s all that I’ve seen. And it’s not half bad. The special effects are nice. The cast isn’t bad. I love the line where the reporter says to the Visitor “Are there any ugly Visitors? All the Visitors are very attractive.”
Ah.. welcome to Hollywood
