V Returns To Small Screen

CNN has an article on an upcoming television movie sequel to the 1983 miniseries (and subsequent miniseries) "V."

I was a teen when the original miniseries aired, and I haven't seen it since. The followup series wasn't very good in my humble opinion. But the media hype for the first one was big and I thought the series did a pretty decent job delivering as a TV event. It was "The Pianist" for the Sci-Fi crowd.

I hope they go more serious and Sci-Fi with this sequel, rather than action-oriented. The main lasting impact of the first miniseries was how some humans fell right into line and helped the "visitors" round up people.
