We Usually Hate Remakes, But….

| Filed under: TV News

v.jpg

THIS is one idea we fucking LOVE!!!!!!!!

One of our all-time favorite childhood shows is coming back to TV!

Variety reports that V, the 1980s miniseries turned TV show about alien lizards invading Earth, will be hitting the airwaves again.

ABC is developing an updated version of the show for primetime.

It will be written by The 4400 co-creator/exec producer Scott Peters.

Peters said, "Whenever I mention V to anybody, they still have a lot of good memories about the original movie and series. Everybody has that imagery of their uniforms, or the visitor eating a hamster. It’s a science fiction icon and too good to pass up."

Yes!!!!!

P.S. Bring back Robert Englund!!!!!!!!!!

Update: OMG!!!!!!!

According to IMDB, Robert IS on the new V show!!!

YES!!!!!!!!!

    YES! I loved this damn show when I was little.

    What I really liked was the anticipation. Seems like for months, the posters were displayed in the B.A.R.T. tunnels. Just a big "V", then, seemed like a month or so, we found out that it meant "Visitors". After the program debuted and we found out we weren't being invaded for reals, interest fell away. It was a good non-toxic solution for the rodent problem tho.

    Oh wow…
    I remember watching this show. I especially remember thinking that evil alien woman "Diana" was great! She was one evil fuggin' lizard chick. LOVED HER!
    Anyhow.. I have a suggestion as to whom should be the new evil lizard lady… ::: Drum Roll :::
    LUCY LAWLESS!!
    Since she isn't doing much these days, except for maybe a couple of "L word" episodes, I think it would be terrific to see her swallowing gerbils and torturing people… Yeah!



  17. 17

    Englund: "I am just." = I am lost.

    'Member that? hehehe



  18. 18

    Ok…at the risk of sounding like a total nerd, I LOVED this show. I STILL remember how beautiful I thought Diana was…until that bitch swallowed a whole hamster! I can't WAIT for this!! I even loved the Visitors outfits which looked like Michael Jackson Thriller jackets!!



  19. 19

    Re: Azureus9 – Wow…that was a great suggestion :)



  20. 20

    I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

    This show was awesome for its time from the makeup and the special effects and the rat and hamster eating aliens. Truly this is going to be terrific!!!!!



  21. 21

    check out the david icke web site and also his latest headlines post on google then watch this movie you wont see things the same way everagain!! blue pill? red pill? blue pill or red one tick tock tick tock tick tock……..



  22. 22

    LOL! This is great! I remember being scared to death watching this. Hope they do it justice..



  23. 23

    AAAAHHHH!!!! I can't wait, it can't suck too bad if the 4400 guy is doing it and Robert Englund - woohoo!



  24. 24

    Heck to the freaking YES, P ! This is awesome! I loved V. That theme song still totally creeps me out! I wonder who they'll get to play that hot evil alien chick Diana???



  25. 25

    FUCK YES……….I LOVED THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to be one of the lizard people when i was a kid…….This is super awesome news.



  26. 26

    The fuckier the show, the better. Everything makes me have nightmares. I love nightmares. Before I go to sleep, I put
    on horror movies so that I will freak out in my sleep. I love it.
    Are you fraid, honey?



  27. 27

    Love's it! I watched this show as a kid. Kinda corny but the theme music was pretty cool. The episode that I remember most was when the chick gave birth to an alien.



  28. 28

    lol, i remember the show and the "hybrid" girl that grew up like overnight then hooked up with a human boy. i also thought marc singer was kinda hot, and the reptile queen was like an amphibian joan collins/alexis carrington, lol.



  29. 29

    Is sexy Diana to old for this remake? Else I would love to se her again



  30. 30

    haha i will never forget that alien eating that hampster!



  31. 31

    Oh, snap! i am sleeping with the lights on! I still can't get over Nightmare on Elm Street!



  32. 32

    Diana was awesome…I remember being a kid watching it in the bed with my parents and I was so scared when I went to bed at night….one of the greatest miniseries—I can't believe I forgot about it….I will definitely be watching!! (Isn't it funny how we forget about so many things from our childhood??)



  33. 33

    They need to bring back the deliciously evil, guinea pig eatin' Diana, played by Jane Badler. She was my favorite and a GREAT villain!



  34. 34

    Re: Obnoxious Joe – I agree…they gotta bring back Diana. She was my favorite reason to watch!



  35. 35

    This is actually very old news lol
    Robert Englund confirmed all this at least a year and a half ago



  36. 36

    IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO MAKE A MOTION PICTURE (THEATRICAL FEATURE FILM) BASED ON THE ORIGINAL SERIES AS OPPOSED TO REMAKING THE SERIES…WILL THERE BE ANOTHER HUMAN-REPTILE SPAWN IN THE NEW SERIES ??!!



  37. 37

    VAGINA!! SWEET!



  38. 38

    A hamster eating vagina? SWEET!



  39. 39

    omg I'm soooo excited (and obviously soooo old too, lol)



  40. 40

    Re: Narcissus
    HAHAHA!! I had the same response…she guzzled down a guinea pig…i had two of those…freaked me out :)



  41. 41

    I too am one of the kiddies damaged by this as a kid. But yay for a decent idea for a remake for once!



  42. 42

    I still don't know if they are bringing back Diana's character… and if they are, who is playing that role?! .. yeah, I'm still stuck on Lucy Lawless doing it. Hahah. Too bad the big screen actresses "don't do tv" Megan Fox would be good as an evil reptilian boss woman too..



  43. 43

    The only person who could play Diana is the original, Jane Badler. This fucking rocks, as long as it's better than the original TV series, which was a big ball of suck after the awesome miniseries.



  44. 44

    Fan-fucking-tastic!!! In this day of love for TV shows that involve the unexplainable (Heroes, Lost), remaking V is perfect!



  45. 45

    YAY! Loved the mini series, not so much with the TV show. The 4400 was a great show, I was sad that it ended.

    I wonder how Fox feels about ABC poaching its show?



  46. 46

    ONE OF THE BEST OF THE 80's!!!!
    I wonder if they'll bring back "diana" she MADE that show!



  47. 47

    hopefully it will be better than the knight rider remake…bile rises in my stomach just thinking about that tripe. havent we come far enough to let the hero wear his friggin seatbelt for cryin out loud…yes i did watch (3 episodes worth of garbage) to give it a chance. my time would have been better spent on the toilet.



  48. 48

    YESSSS! V - The Final Battle was SO COOL! Can't wait!
