If I can tear myself from the election results tonight, I plan on watching the pilot of the new V series on ABC which will premier at 7:00 PM central tonight. I wrote about this new V series here in a post last May, a remake of a cheesy, yet entertaining, alien invasion show from the Eighties.
Hattip to the ever reticent lads and lasses at Lair of the Catholic Cavemen. The original V series was a fun, if ludicrous, science fiction invasion of earth tale which ran from 84-85. We were expected to believe that Lizard-like aliens could be made up to look like humans. After it was discovered what they really looked like, and that they planned to make Lizard happy meals out of humanity, they continued, for no discernable reason other than the wardrobe budget, to disguise themselves as human. With the mind parked in neutral it was a lot of fun, especially observing the battles between Lizard-uber vixens, Diana, portrayed by Jane Badler, and Lydia, portrayed by June Chadwick, to see who would be Queen Lizard. Dallas meets the “To Serve Man” episode from the Twilight Zone. One of the more off-beat TV offerings in the 80’s.
