Keep an eye on the new series coming out Tues.

Who knows? Maybe it'll give us a "taste" of tactics(doubtful, though) and such.

The Anna chick looks great though.  :wacko:

I was sitting here at work, yesterday, and watching the old "V" mini-series from the 80s on the ScyFi channel. One thing that struck me was the dedication at the beginning of each episode,"Dedicated to all the freedom fighters - past, present, and future." The freedom fighters they were probably referring to were the contras in Nicaraugua and the mujahadeen in Afghanistan, in fact there were references to them. It will be interesting to see the new show.

We loved the old series, it was excellent!

But I will have to miss this series opener, Going to metalica.

I'm sure I can find it tomorrow on the net...somewhere.

If you've got cable or satellite, see if you can't get a DVR box.

Or get a VCR (remember those things?  :laugh: )

Just watched the 1st episode...

The show wasn't bad...but I really hated the whole TV watching experience, I deffinately haven't missed anything in the past 5 months that I haven't used it for anything other than movies. I may just watch it online from now on...

Yes!  They even brought the crazy "reptilian" conspiracy theories into the show by saying that they have been here for years - starting unnecessary wars, etc.  That they are in positions of power, etc.

Of course, there's at least one reptilian "good guy" so far, so everything will not be what it seems.

'V' aims at Obamamania

By Glenn Garvin
 
McClatchy/Tribune News
 
November 3, 2009



Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.

The news media swoons in admiration -- one simpering anchorman even shouts at a reporter who asks a tough question: "Why don't you show some respect?!" The public is likewise smitten, except for a few nut cases who circulate batty rumors on the Internet about the leader's origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: "Embracing change is never easy."

So, does that sound like anyone you know? Oh, wait -- did I mention the leader is secretly a totalitarian space lizard who's come here to eat us?

Seconded. But she was even more attractive in "Firefly".

Indeeed, and in Stargate SG-1 as Adria.

She makes for a lovely and sexy dictatrix (feminine form of dictator, for those who don't know).

I was surprised to see that this show has TWO fireflies, Inara and Wash.

...and yeah, I did notice the seeming swipe at Obamao's utopian claims.
Can't wait to see how this plays out.
