Link or are you just talking out your ass and bringing politics where it doesn't belong again?
That's certainly too bad if it dies on its feet so quickly. I was actually starting to look forward to at least checking it out.
Umm..I like Lost!
The other V thread already mentioned this... with a link that is just one entertainment columnist's piece of inside information and speculation. And the link wasn't even posted by darkwing_duck1. But don't let that stop you.
TRUE BLOOD's ratings kept steadily climbing, too.
I'm trying to think of something that's interesting and episodic, but other than comedies, I'm drawing a blank!
So do I but everything that follows it dies.
I just got the LOST official magazine today!!!
Okay, I've gotten the official confirmation from ABC -- they don't want "V" to be mistaken for some political agenda to smear the current administration. They said they don't want any of their shows to be political. So now the visitors will be called "the deciders," they'll declare that "either you're with us or against us," the human resistance will be called the "axis of evil," the aliens will be big baseball fans and Elizabeth Mitchell's character is now named Hillary.
I've missed BSG.
PS, ABC ran a V ad on the back cover of TV Guide, similar to this but with a simpler, white background. Pretty cool - it would make me want to check it out even if I weren't already going to - but I hope Anna's eye reads as "lizard" and not as "cat."
All this change just to make sure it doesn't mirror the current presidency, has made me completely lose interest. I will now not be giving the show a chance.
Re: showrunner change
And ABC has probably just shot themselves in the foot by not having V on Hulu this morning.
So is ABC picking it up or not?
They should. It got 12 million viewers.
Next episode will see a sharp decline I bet
TWO production shakeups and the pilot only now aired? Yeah, this show's doomed...
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.
13.9 Million Viewers. I suspect that its in good shape.
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.
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.
