V: 1x01 "Pilot" 11/3/2009 - Grading & Discussion

A couple review snippets:
We've seen the pilot, and on a scale of 1 to 10, we give it an 11. V is the best pilot we've seen in, well, forever.
http://uk.eonline.com/uberblog/watch...reak_from.html


serialized storytelling...

...features a knockout performance (in more ways than one) by Morena Baccarin as the cool, beguiling alien leader.
similarities?
one could throw in "District 9" and the closer parallel to "The Twilight Zone" episode "To Serve Man,"

Isn't it a tad early to start a discussion thread when the show doesn't air until Tuesday?

The only other threads I could find were
Bad news for V remake and

unrelated SyFy to air the original V this Sunday!
both of which are not a good place to discuss this pilot and the series itself.

Edit to add: just found this thread titled :"V" which was too short to show up in a title search.

Well... the first eight minutes are available to watch, so people could discuss that for the time being.

Should I just go ahead and give it an "Excellent" for Elizabeth Mitchell's rocking body?

Going by with other sites say, it was an Us Weekly photoshoot from 2008. There are two more pics if you want to search for them.

We're all really really excited at the possibility of a decent, and fun, and highly watchable sci fi show being launched.

Man it seems like EONS. The last one was Lost (or BSG, which one was later?) Heroes could have been, but it let us down so badly. FastForward is already showing signs of failure. Skiffy? Wasteland!

I'm looking forward to it but I'm not hopeful about the ratings. I hope that they're good, but its opposite heavy hitter NCIS...

It's FlashForward... you'll get it one day.

I'm excited about this... but not too excited. I'm already not too thrilled with the scheduling.

I figure the way the ratings are going, there's no point to memorizing the name. And considering how deadly dull the last episode was, I think "fast forward" is a far more accurate name anyhoo.
