Well I do agree it was a little corny at times with the unneeded drama, I didn't think it was all bad for a start. Being 31, I did remember the original, which started in 1983. The original was a miniseries, so, I can imagine that this will also be a miniseries. Sort of to be expected not having a lot of drawn out and build up of the story line, not being a full blown out series. I suppose you'll just have to remember the original to get it, which they are playing on the sci fi channel, at least where I'm at.
They will show only 4 episodes of the new V, then cut it off until after the Winter Olympics in March, for the last 13 episodes. Which is really stupid imo.
