ABC Orders "V" Pilot

Posted: January 27th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
ABC Orders "V" PilotSubmit Comment
ABC has finally given a pilot order to a re-imagining of the 1980s miniseries "V," about an alien invasion. The script is written by "4400" co-creator/executive producer Scott Peters, who began his career as a writer/producer on "The Outer Limits."

The original "V" served as an allegory for the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. Peters said he won't duplicate that concept, except that the new "V" will still focus on what happens when the masses have blind faith in their leaders.

In this case, the new "V" will center on Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent with an aimless son who's got problems. When the aliens arrive, her son gloms on to them causing tension within the family. As in the original "V," several storylines will unfold simultaneously.

But even without the same storyline, the original "V's" bones will remain: As in the '80s version, the show will open with an enormous army of spaceships hovering over the world's major cities. The visitors say they've come to help Earth, but their motives are nefarious (in the original, they wanted to steal the world's water supply).

So, this film is an allegory of the Obama presidency and the mainstream media?

Why did I just get cringing flashbacks of the Day the Earth Stood still remake and the caricature which was The Simpson's Citizen Klang.

Oh, perhaps cause that's what this will probably turn out like. How do they really plan on taking this "dysfunctional family" trope to new heights without a redux of the sh*t that's gone before it in the last few months? No, this will likely be a failure.

Jesus, WTF?! I loved that series as it was not they want to revision it as soap trash. Oh and Minkowski, don't you mean your president Bush Jr. and his Religious wrong, oh sorry right?

Does anyone else think this is very similar to Childhood's End?

Childhood's End was more of a benevolent nature though, despite some of its communist undertones.
This? Is supposed to be the opposite of that. Communism - evil, aliens - deceptive. Etc. etc.

"Oh and Minkowski, don't you mean your president Bush Jr. and his Religious wrong, oh sorry right?" No, Obama and the mainstream media, as some like to call it. Didn't you read or watch the major news during the last months of the election? They pretty much elected this guy. Or at the very, very least, helped elect him. I'm Matthews got a tingle up his leg meeting the Messiah, or the One, as Oprah calls him. lol. Not even the lunatic fringe of the Religious Right got this nutty about GWB. Not even CLOSE.
