Well, I predict this turning into a fanboy shitstorm of pro and anti Obama horsepucky.
I can't believe they're remaking V. Looking at this story from the point of view of the modern world, this just comes off as, at best, xenophobic, and, at less than best, outright racist. In two hundred years, all of our evil alien science fiction might be as big an embarrassment socially as our blaxploitation was.
plus freddie kruger as a good guy.
and god damn michael fucking ironside as a man named Ham.

It was a pretty straight forward allegory for the rise of fascism that glorified guerrilla warfare. Unlike the new one where the aliens are sleeper cell terrorists or something.

This isn't about the Thomas Pynchon novel...
That makes it my second favorite V.
OK, so we get the lady from Lost and Morena Baccarin and did I see Alan Tudyk as one of the other cops in the fake passport scene? Yes, Yes I did.
OK ABC, you have me for the crappy re-make. You've spoken to the true heart of my very strong geekdom.
I would say that regardless of how bad this is nerds will be praising it for the fact of Tudyk and Baccarin alone.

Eh, no reverb in the V's voices. At least it looks like they kept them lizards.
If they use the peel-off body suits then I bet masking turns into a nerd sex fetish.
So...uh...Juliet's really dead, isn't she?
yeah, at least until season 7 of lost when everyone comes back as zombies.
Wow, that's probably going to suck at least as bad as the original.
