Reminder: V Premieres Tonight

Yep, the new V premieres on ABC at 8:00 pm EST. It stars Lost‘s Juliet as an FBI agent, Firefly‘s Monica Morena Baccarin as the head alien, and is based on the original TV mini-series that made me shit my pants in terror as a child. And yet… I’m worried. The dialogue heard in the first 8-minutes of the episode sounded beyond generic, and there’s the matter of ABC only airing the first four episodes in November, and saving the rest until after the Olympics. That doesn’t sound like a vote of confidence, but it does mesh with all the rumors of the show having directorial problems. But on the fifth hand, the pilot has gotten excellent reviews. I don’t know. All I know is that if I see Morena Baccarin rip her face off and/or eat a guinea pig tonight, I’ll be watching until the end of the series. Period.
