They've remade V.......for reasons passing understanding

Hey, look, I'm as big a fan of cheesy 80s sci-fi as the next guy (bigger, probably) but is there really any reason to revisit V? When it originally came out as a miniseries, it was a well done little allegory about political resistance, occupation and whatnot. It also had lizard people. And Marc Singer.

came the second minseries, which was more standard laser blasting cheesy sci-fi. Finally, we had the short-lived TV show, which was simply cheese.

ow we've got the new show, which seems to in no way take a fresh slant. Well, here's hoping I'll get to see Morena Baccarin eat a gerbil or something.
