The gang is back together! Last week after a silly game of let’s-pretend-Tandy-died-to-get-some-sympathy, Carol (Kristen Schaal) finally confessed that Phil (Will Forte) was alive. She was willing to leave if they did not accept him. So they did… and punished him by locking him in a stockade (where did they even get that?).

Some spoilers below.

TV Madness: NBC Renews ‘Chuck,’ Cancels ‘The Event’; ABC Cancels ‘V’

The Movie God   |  @   |

As you may have noticed, there’s been a bit of television shuffling lately. It’s that purely chaotic time of year when networks decide what shows they keep and what shows they kill, as well as what new shows they’ll order seasons of.

Last night news broke that CBS was going to keep pressing on with their seemingly doomed Two and a Half Men by replacing Charlie Sheen with Ashton Kutcher. Then, late last night, it was reported that NBC was not going to take the chance everyone thought they would on the much talked about comic book adaptation, Wonder Woman.

This has continued today with a mess of announcements and updates making their way across the ‘net. Some will not matter much to anyone while others will either excite or devastate loyal fans of these various titles facing the firing squad.

According to the USA Today piece, over the course of the second season’s ten episodes, viewers will get looks and glances at the V’s appearance, but the full alien won’t be unveiled until the season finale. Executive Producer Scott Rosenbaum had this to say on the new look:

According to sources, Marc Singer will be joining the cast of ABC’s alien invasion series, V. Singer is no stranger to that world, as the actor played the lead role of Mike Donovan on the original V, which aired in the ’80s. The actor, who is perhaps best known from his lead role in The Beastmaster, will be playing Lars Tremont, one of the members of a secret organization consisting of top military and government leaders from all over the world

This goes along with the news that Jane Badler, who also starred as Diana in the original series opposite of Singer, will be joining the cast of the ABC’s reboot. Badler will take on the role of the evil mother of Anna, played by fanboy favorite Morena Baccarin of Firefly and Serenity fame, and she’ll make her debut on the January 4, 2011 premiere of season 2.

Blu-ray Review: V: The Complete First Season

V the series (2009) Blu-ray DVDV: The Complete First Season
Blu-ray | DVD
(2009)
Starring Elizabeth Mitchell, Morris Chesnut, Joel Gretsch, Logan Huffman, Lourdes Benedicto, Laura Vandervoort, Morena Baccarin, Scott Wolf
Warner Bros Home Entertainment
Release date: November 2, 2010

I watched the majority of V as it aired, and honestly, a lot of what I saw didn’t blow me away. I liked what I saw for the most part, but like many at the time, I was drawn in by Lost and my attention faded as V aired directly after. A friend of mine was a huge fan of V, and ultimately made me enjoy the great parts of the show. Finally getting to sit and watch the show on Blu-ray on its own, I was far more drawn in, and I was able to enjoy the series for what it is: a fantastic, thoughtful science fiction show that digs into modern day issues while still giving an intriguing story about rebels fighting an invasion.

Based on the cult hit miniseries from the 1980s, the basic premise of V is that several parts of Earth’s skies are overcast by large spaceships as a group of alien Visitors led by Anna (Morena Baccarin) who promise “We are peace. Always.” The atmosphere that is created when they are setting up the arrival of the Visitors so eerie and almost robotic. The tone of the show at this point is that the Visitors are not necessarily to be trusted, but with the help of broadcast journalist, Chad Decker (Scott Wolf), Anna and company are able to gain the trust of the majority of the population. The conspiracy theory portion of the show starts with Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) as she teams with a group of rebels that don’t trust the group of aliens that have come to their planet.

Prime Time Anarchy: ‘Heroes,’ FlashForward’ & More Canceled; ‘Chuck,’ ‘V’ Renewed

Heroes

The biggest television networks have been firing on all cylinders this week, choosing what shows to renew, what new shows to add, and what titles would be executed via cancellation.

The busiest of the powerhouse networks have been ABC and NBC, who extended and killed off some big names in their lineups. The biggest of these was easily NBC’s Heroes, which people have expected to get canceled for a long time now, but it just kept on going. There were thoughts of bringing the show, which lost its appeal by the end of the second season, back for one more closing season. Instead, NBC decided to just end the show now, but they may still do one more special finale to wrap up whatever might need wrapping up in the world of Heroes. The network also ended Law & Order (but renewed spinoff SVU) and medical dramas Mercy and Trauma.

‘Firefly’ & ‘Lost’ To Converge On Newly Greenlit ‘V’ TV Remake

V

It appears that some good, hard work went into the pilot for a possible TV remake of the short-running ’80s cult hit V. ABC has now officially given the greenlight for the show to return to our screens in one form or another (explained later) at some point in the near future. For a while, fans of the show were both happy and worried that a pilot was ordered for the remake, but no guarantees were to be had. Now it appears as they have just that.

V is the science fiction story of an alien race known as the Visitors, who attempt to take over Earth. The leader of this race — an alien who is very smart and educated on human cultures — is captured by what will apparently be a pair of Homeland Security agents, and put on trial for her actions.

Firefly‘s Morena Baccarin was the first casting announcement that we heard about (Read: ‘Firefly Companion Morena Baccarin Cast In ‘V’). Morena will be taking on the role of the alien leader mentioned above — a role that should be pretty large and visible for our Firefly friend.

V

Morena Baccarin, known best as the sexy and well-respected escort from Joss Whedon’s Firefly, has been cast as one of the leads in the pilot for ABC’s V. (Read: Science Fiction Series ‘V’ To Attempt Return To TV)

V is a remake of an ’80s show which told the tale of a race of aliens known as Visitors who come to earth in an effort to take it over. Baccarin would play Anna, the leader of the Visitors, who is smart and very knowledgeable in human culture.

The show isn’t a guarantee yet, as ABC has only ordered the pilot to see how it fares. The pilot is based on a spec script by Scott Peters.
