V on ABC November 3, 2009

So, anyone going to give this new "re-imaging" a try? I'm excited.

Morena Baccarain (Firefly/Serenity, SG-1) starring as the "Diana" character named Anna and Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliette on LOST, Angelina Jolie's girlfriend in Gia) starring as the Head of the Resistance.

Apparently they're only going to do 4 episodes to begin with, and then pick up in 2010 (if ratings justify?)

I'll give it a shot.

It's actually premiering on my birthday, so I figure that's a fun way to celebrate.

I'm in. Also will check out the re-imagining of The Prisoner, though I don't know that is. Hopefully around the same time, that would be cool.

Quietly stoked, after hearing bad things about Stargate U and Flash Forward.

SGU isn't bad, it's just currently a little flat. Once it gets going, there is every possibility it will be great. I haven't lost hope for it yet. If we get past the first half of S1 and it hasn't gotten any more exciting, or Dr Rush doesn't become less annoying, then we may have a problem

Can't speak to FF though, haven't seen a minute of it.

The original series (whichever it was) scared the hell outta me when I was a kid. This new thing looks quite promising. I suppose this'll be the next big thing. Serves Stargate Universe right - all it does is rip off BSG.

Except that its on a major broadcast network, and when it inevitably fails to bring in big ratings, it will be canceled after 15 episodes.
