Hi and welcome to the first regular V recap/review thingy for Republibot. I am Republibot 1.0 and I will be your host and guide through the next several weeks until the show goes on indefinite hiatus based on how well the ratings hold up. I will try my best to be fair and balanced as I share my thoughts on this show with you over its short run, but I feel it important and in the interest of full disclosure to let you all know that I have a very soft spot in my heart for the original, regardless of how hokey it is in retrospect. I am even more fond of it than I am of Man From Atlantis.

"V" - is it too early to say the show is doomed?

As most of you know, "V" - the well-intended, poorly-realized, and rapidly-self-destructive mid-80s SF show is being rebooted this year. We've specualated that it's officially a "Troubled" series, with a lot of writers and producers getting booted behind the scenes, strange legal battles, and recently a decision to push back the premier of the show from September to November.

Hi, everyone. First of all, we'd like to apologize again for the whole "Pirate" thing yesterday. Secondly, we'd just give you a heads up of what we'll be covering in the next few weeks:

* The Dollhouse will be returning September 25th, next Friday. I'll be resuming my coverage of that show for the site.

* Flash Forward will be debuting Thursday, September 24th, and Republibot 2.0 will be covering that show.

* Stargate: Universe will be debuting October 2nd, and I'll be (eagerly) covering that one.

THINGS WE'RE DEFINITELY INTERESTED IN: The 2009 reboot of "V"

Holy frack, does this look awsome or what?

The original "V" was a great premise/allegory that was spun off in to a completely ludicrous and unwanted version of Dynasty with Aliens. One of the things that always frustrated me about it was that it just flat-out refused to take itself seriously. This re-imagining, however, just looks freakin' amazing! A surprisingly large number of the characters from the old show appear to be here, and the cast looks pretty great, too, don't'cha think? Our own Republibot 1.0 has already agreed to review this show, too.
