Sounds cool. I loved Alien Nation and was pissed when Fox canned it. Hopefully SyFy will make it a success.

Severely torn here. I like Tim Minnear and liked Alien Nation but....I don't know. Sometimes I wish they'd leave the past stuff alone and come up with something of their own.

Re: Alien Nation to be remade by TIM MINEAR on SyFy

I love the original series, and would love to see it return to the screen, although I almost wish we could see the actors from the series return rather than re-casting, but it has been too long at this point...

Hopefully Kenneth Johnson can be involved in some capacity. From the commentary tracks on the DVDs, he's the one who made a mediocre buddy cop movie into a worthwhile television series (as much as I love Farscape, Rockne S. Obannon's version isn't great).

I think there is TONS of potential in this type of series, but I'd much prefer a movie then a series.

Why? The film didn't fulfill the premise, and even the television movies didn't use it as well as a continuing series did.

Remaking a movie that starred Jimmy Caan?! That is just not right!

I loved the TV series, but I think it might be too soon for a remake.
Can no one think of something new these days?

You know, the stars of the original movie do TV now. Maybe they can cast James Caan and Mandy Patinkin. Of course, Patinkin would just quit after the first season. Or quit right before the third season and not tell anyone.

Can Gary Graham be in it? If so I'll watch for sure.
