Scott Wolf says new "V" Visitors just might be lizard people
 
The actor playing a reporter who works with the Visitors (in the new version) was on NBC last night and let that semi-spoiler slip. Didn't actually say they WERE reptiles, but said they 'just might be'.

On the matter of their reptillian nature on the original series, has anyone here wondered why in the world the visitors would find humans in any way attractive? The original episodes are wrapping up on SyFy right now, and there was just a scene of Diana and her beau "alone together", both still wearing their human skins.

Somehow I don't think the human appearance would lend in any way to amorous feelings on their part, no more than two humans would be attracted to each other if both were disguised as lizard people.

Always bugged me about that end of things.

Could we assume the Visitors were somehow mentally conditioned, somehow "humanized" so make their disguises more successful?

Have.

They're the exception, not the rule.

More than just a couple of the Visitors seemed to appreciate the human form. That suggests something beyond "the exception".

Uhhh... doesn't the brief shot of a visitor with part of his face peeled off in one of the commercials pretty much confirm that?

I've also seen banner ads on other sites showing Morena Baccarin with photoshopped reptile eyes. If that's supposed to be a spoiler, it's one of the worst kept spoilers on TV.

Well, if you're talking lizard people, that would fall under the term "Scalies." So the Vs' interest would be Scalie/Human lovin'. I'll get you your brainbleach.

If I remember the original mini and series right Diana was a bit of um...how to put this politely...overly amorous? Adventurous and non discriminating?

She seemed to be happy to be with Sirians (Visitors) both male and female and humans (both male and female). She seemed happy to be in her true form or just keep ye old human suit on to do the nasty with whomever.

Granted she would do most of this to get something else she wanted but I had the impression she seemed to enjoy it a lot as well. She was quite liberal in her sexual appetites.

Oh, great. They only MIGHT be lizards? Is there any other way the remake could wussify the original? Are they even still intent on stealing the water and eating all the people? :rolleyes:

And by the way, Jane Badler was way hotter than Morena Baccarin. :devil:

My granddad might agree with you there. Otherwise...meh.

I guess it would be too much to hope that the new version would come up with some plausible, non-stupid reason for the aliens to traverse all these light years to invade Earth? Eating people and stealing water doesn't cut it, any more than it did in the 80s.
