Hide yer hamsters: Television's "V" is getting a remake

Looks like we have hit the 80’s with the entire “what was cool then is about to become cool now” generational thing.

We have a Footloose remake coming up, a Red Dawn remake, a Predator remake and now a older nerd’s most beloved TV show is about to get a reboot. “V” is coming back to television on ABC, this time around starring Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet on LOST) and Morena Baccarin (Firefly’s Inara). The show is being done by the creator of USA channels “The 4400″ which in its own right was a damn fine show (and a clear X-Men ripoff). It has some other Firefly rejects in it (don’t they act in packs?) and promises to be just as confusing as the original “V” was  with several storylines  that will unfold together.

Won’t be the same without Marc Singer though and the repeated shuttle footage, but oh well cannot look a gift horse in the mouth.

But hey guys…no human alien relationships with babies ok?
