V for very tempting
The remake of V indicates it is no longer the campy, 80s schlocker but something morphed from the Disaster genre.
It’s a bit War of the Worlds, Independence Day, maybe even The 4400.
V is a remake of the campy alien schlocker from the 80s and the trailer for the new ABC series. Now it looks like something from the Disaster genre.
The trailer looks pretty darn tempting, with a cast including Eliabeth Mitchell (Lost‘s Juliet). Party of Five‘s Scott Wolf also appears, all grown up.
Of course sci-fi remakes, reimaginings and revisits rarely have any long term success. Dr Who, Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica are three of those that sit at the top of the heap.
V premieres in the US in the Fall season.
