reVisited

Wednesday last week, we were treated to a feature-length episode to kickstart the new TV series V. As a fan of the original 80s show, I was excited to see this getting a reboot. And a couple of days ago we had another feature-length (2 hours) episode of V! We're getting a V overload.

My reaction: looking good! The series has been fast-paced so far. In the first installment, the roles of the main characters have been defined: a single-mother FBI agent who learns about the sinister side of the V's and tries to keep his teenage son away from them (to no avail), a priest who also knows but is beset by people returning to the faith, looking for answers in the face of the Visitors and their miraculous healing centers, a Visitor who has turned his back on his kind and loves a human. Very interesting twists.

Incidentally, Joel Gretsch (as Fr. Jack Landry) reminds me of the original series' Marc Singer. I wonder if the resemblance is just coincidental.
I look forward to more compelling episodes!
