Re: Bad news for V remake

TWO production shakeups and the pilot only now aired? Yeah, this show's doomed...

The break has little to do with the Olympics and much to do with the "re-engineering" of the premise to contain less political allegory after it was pointed out that the Visitors' Modus Operandi closely resembled that of a certain real life administration...
Link or are you just talking out your ass and bringing politics where it doesn't belong again?
Today a right-leaning high profile website suggested there was a connection (not based on evidence, just what they think) which is why you are suddenly reading this complaint today, and not before.

Next episode will see a sharp decline I bet
Nah. I think there will be a moderate drop - that much is inevitable for any new show - but it should hold up well. It's already done better than I thought it would. One good indicator is that the numbers rose in the second half hour - if people dislike what they see, it drops at the half hour mark.

Ratings on Tuesday were solid across various age groups, with "V" winning not only in 18-49 but also in 25-54 (6.1/15) and persons 12-34 (3.7/11). It fared especially well among males, with its men 18-49 score (5.7/16) the net's best in the timeslot in six years.

The sci-fi drama built a bit in its second half-hour, going from a 5.0 rating in 18-49 to a 5.3, and in total viewers from 14.1 million to 14.5 million.

The pilot was pretty good. It's obvious a lot of money was spent making it. Very cinematic. It looked damned good in HD, I must say.

Re: Bad news for V remake

People are stupid. I'm still amazed by the jaws dropping to the ground when I tell idiots that season 4 of Enterprise was mocking the hell out of the Bush administration but it's pretty fracking blatant and obvious.

But the V are trying to appear like te goodies cleaning shop after assholes had turned the planet into a toilet. If you ask me that's really celebrating the new administration and gibing the previous, even if we begin to suspect that if the V have a duplicitous secret agenda, then so must Obama?

These conspiracy nutters need to type with two hands when they rant onlne like this.
