SyFy to air the original V this Sunday!

SyFy will be airing the entirety of the V saga over three days, beginning Sunday.

On Sunday, beginning at 1pm EST, SyFy will be airing the V miniseries and V: The Final Battle back to back. And on Monday and Tuesday the V tv show will be shown. I've never seen any V before, though I've always wanted to. Now I get a chance!

So, if anyone wants to see some original V, watch/set DVRs for SyFy on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

Actually Syfy is airing the V series as their daily marathons on Monday and Tuesday.

Trying to whet our appetites for the new ABC series.

Oops, I must have missed that. Well, there you go. The entirety of V in three days, even better!

I edited my original post to include the series.

Re: SyFy to air the original V this Sunday!

When "V" miniseries came out on DVD I rented it on Netflix. That have it telecined at 1.85:1 aspect ratio and on the director's commentary he tells how they framed for 4:3 and protected for 1.85:1 (a little wider than current 'widescreen 16:9). It really gives it a better look 'more cinematic'.

I wonder if SyFy HD will air will air it from an HD telecine or just upconvert?
I also wonder if the standard def. channel will letterbox it.

I'm glad they're not airing the TV series it was terrible. I'm a fan of the first mini and the Final Battle (sort of). I wish Kenneth Johnson could get V the second generation off the ground.

Just a note, the Syfy schedule doesn't show it airing on Monday and Tuesday, but my TiVo programming guide does. The Syfy schedule doesn't show either miniseries on Sunday either, so I think they had a schedule change but never updated the website.

Zap2it's listing also show V The Series airing Monday and Tuesday. Just thankful Halloween month will be over, so the schedule can return to normal.

Sci-fi Channel should have picked up V The Remake, would last longer than on ABC.

Re: SyFy to air the original V this Sunday!

Sweet of Syfy to show a classic SCI FI show. I have to say, though, that I probably won't be watching. I have the V DVDs. Maybe Syfy should rate there viewers in the marathon though. If enough people tune in, maybe they'll realize our serious need for a proper sf channel with all the staples. Are they breaking the marathon for their precious wrestling?! And Syfy is an NBC Universal channel still, right? Would they want to hype an ABC remake?

From what I remember, I would recommend the original two-hour miniseries, but don't bother with The Final Battle or the regular series.
