what could go wrong?  granted it's only a pilot order.  I wonder if it will be able to make it as a show this time around.

you don't have an official sci-fi show without at least one Firefly veteran on it.

as soon as i saw that name, i knew they had to be giving her the 'Diana' role...has the right look to be somewhat faithful to the original as leader of the Visitors.  i really don't have any expectations for this one to be worth watching, but i'll at least give it a chance just because i have fond memories of the original when i was much younger.

It probably means it will be promoted as a miniseries, but leaving it open to become a full series if people like it enough.

and now it may not show up until  midseadon.   so, it's sci-fi, on ABC, and they're already screwing around with it.  I bet it will end up on either Friday night or Tuesday/Wednesday going against American Idiots.

Nice trailer!!  I love how they've taken sci-fi TV favorites (or leftovers depending on your point of view) from everywhere!  Of course most/all of them have bad track records of keeping shows alive.

Morena - Firefly/SG1 (I love her!)
Alan Tudyk - Firefly/Dollhouse  (I love him!)
Juliette! - Lost (I absolutely love her!)
Joel Gretsch - The 4400  (I absolutely love him!)
Scott Wolf (go Bailey!  used to love him!) and Lourdes Benedicto - The Nine (ack)

Hmm, aside from Juliette, everyone here has prematurely cancelled shows lol.

only 4 episodes in November, then no more until March, and a six week hiatus in production.  I wonder if the show is already in trouble.

How damn stupid can you be.  I mean honest to god every network executive above the janitorial level needs to be fired on the spot while someone with any sense at all comes in and takes over.  See NBC for examples of how to destroy one of the most dominant and powerful networks in just a short few years.

From CeeKay's article:

Quote from: Entertainment Weekly
An ABC spokeswoman says it was always the network’s intent to the run the science fiction drama in “pod” form to treat it more like event programming.


Pass.

That article may as well have been titled "ABC Cancels 'V'; Cites Poor Ratings".  If this series survives long enough to produce thirteen episodes -- which would be sometimes in 2011 under this droolingly stupid schedule -- maybe I'll give it a shot then.

NBC also had a plan to bring back the original cast to reprise their roles in Kenneth Johnson's sequel to the original miniseries, however those plans seem to have fallen flat now that ABC has charged ahead with the reboot.

Yeah, I remember the talk about that.  It got pretty far and involved the signal that the resistance sent out summoning another group of aliens who also weren't that friendly, but were much more alien.

looks like they're bring an exec from Chuck over to V.  the annoying part?

Quote
V," based on the 1980s miniseries, launches Tuesday amidst strong fan buzz and solid reviews. It will air four episodes, ending with a cliffhanger before the returning in the spring for the rest of its 13-episode order.

yeah, I have a feeling this series is going to be DOA.
