Really not on topic, but...did Scott Wolf get old? hehe

I am not sure...was all excited to see Alan, thought about it for minute and waited for the inevitable switch...which occurred. Oh, how I miss Wash!

And am I the only one that wants the Priest's to forget his vows? hehe

Overall, it has had an interesting start, I thought that the CG was well done and the little character development we have seen has great possibilities. I am curious to how they are going to portray the V's in their true form. Are they going to go the CG route, costume, puppet? A little of them all...

I know slight girl review, but I am having one of those moments...

Just finished watching it and it was pretty good. Did anyone else notice that the address on the warehouse was 4400? Isn't the hot priest the same guy from the 4400? :D

I <3 Elizabeth Mitchell!! I'm sooo stoked she's already got a replacement for LOST. :)

I thought the fast eye blinks that Anna did were a great touch (did anyone else think nictitating membranes?). Nice set up. I can see this going lots of cool places.

As for Scott Wolf finally starting to show his age, it's about time. The guy is like Dick Clark. I can remember watching him on Party of Five and he's the only one that never grew up after that show! :D

I'm going to download this weekend so i'll get back here asap.... Looking forward to seeing Ms Bacharin back in action as well as Elizabeth Mitchel as well... Can't ever not think about her when i hear the song "Downtown" by Petula Clark now.

Elizabeth has been in so many great and diverse roles, it's hard not to love her.

And Morena - this is going to be such a different part for her. I can't wait to see how she plays evil. :)

Well, yes, but that was more of a religious zealot kind of evil, misguided more then malicious.

Yes the priest is from 4400, when he first appeared I was like wait what 4400 guy yay

Then Wash was on and I was like double yay, and then I got sad.

Geek: slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc." Formerly, the term referred to a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken, bat, snake or bugs. The 1976 edition of the American Heritage Dictionary included only the definition regarding geek shows.

I kinda liked it, loved spotting all the actors I recognised...loved the CGI and the end!

I never saw the original, but hubbie explained it to me before we watched so I knew what to expect...

I will say though as far as new series goes, I preferred Warehouse 13 and Flash Forward... :D

If you think Elizabeth Mitchell is hot, did you ever see her in Gia?? She's got a love scene with Angelina Jolie. :D Every time I see her cross her arms and get a certain sarcastic, upset expression on her face, I hear her say "Behold the florist" lol

ooh a shower scene with lizzie! *Drool*
Two episodes already and i'm hooked.
When they mention the first resistance i'm assuming they are referring to the orginal series? Since i don't know what happened in that one can anyone give me a very brief summary?

Technically, this wipes out the events of the first series, so technically it doesn't count. Everything you want to know though is on the Wikipage http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_(The_Original_Miniseries)

wiki.. how could i forget about it.. now that was an interesting article.. i can pick the entire seires for less than $50 on ebay... woohoo!
SO what they hell are they referring to then if the orginal miniseries didn't happen?? Hopefully it will be explained in the up coming episodes
Thanks Raven..

One a side note i just found out that channel 9 here is going to pick up the series and "fast track it" so it will be two weeks behind the American release! Now the question is can save my bandwith and wait the two weeks for the episode or just download to i can be current with most of you.... hmmm....

Well, I don't normally get to watch it right away. Tonight though, I was off work so watched it on TV with Chris. :) Can't remember the last time I watched a show live.
