V is for (victory) REMAKE. How slimy is that? October 11, 2008

V is coming back to TV but not as a sequel as we first would have guessed – but as a remake.

tHAT Just sucks. The original V was awesome and doesn’t need a remake – there is also a perfectly good legitimate sequel that should be made. V the Second Generation is written by the original author of V and is the proper successor to V not some remake.

According to SciFi Wire:
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…As in the ’80s version, the show will open with an enormous army of spaceships hovering over the world’s major cities.

Original V writer-producer-director Kenneth Johnson recently attempted to revive V as V: The Second Generation but is not involved in the Peters version.

What a shame!!
