Unexpectedly good
4 November 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I was worried that this, as a remake of a cult series, would be either bad or silly, but I really liked the pilot episode, and I'm looking forward to seeing the next one.

It's faster paced than the original "V", but as I found the original sometimes frustratingly slow, I wasn't bothered by this. The aliens are made to seem a lot more human - all except for their leader Anna (played by Morena Baccarin), who made my skin crawl. She has some facial expressions that would make me back up and start looking for something to use as a weapon. She really builds up a certain feeling of paranoia, and a definite feeling of not knowing what she's planning. Both fit this story well, I think.

Thankfully, there's a lot less characters in this version than the old one. I always found them hard to keep track of, and here it seems they've chosen to concentrate on a fewer number of people.

It wouldn't surprise me if I come to like this new version of "V" better than the old one. The old one was very much about people; how they reacted, felt and interacted. The new one seems to be a bit more about the action and thriller elements.
