Alien Invasion

Tomorrow night, Earth will once again be invaded by aliens. (I wonder if anybody keeps track of this kind of thing on a fictional basis...)
ABC has dusted off the old 80s NBC series "V" and given it a new look for the 21st century.
On Sunday, SyFy replayed the old version, and I just couldn't resist giving it another look. Marc Singer (remember "The Beastmaster"?) played a television news photographer who gets some up close and personal video of the "visitors" who promise all sorts of things in return for certain needs of their own.
Without spoiling anything here, I'll just say that the aliens are not what they seem, and the "V" doesn't really stand for "visitors."
It's a cool concept, and one that I'll surely be watching. The show has a slick look to it, and good casting.
Elizabeth Mitchell from ABC's "Lost" is one of the stars of the show, which features some other faces you might recognize, including Scott Wolf as an eager reporter (the new Marc Singer?) and many others.
Without a doubt, if visitors from another planet were to come here, it would be the most significant event in history, and I find it hard to believe people would be able to do anything at all to get back to "normal," since we would all be so curious to find out more about these beings.
You can watch the first few minutes of the show below. I've seen the clip, and trust me, there's nothing in it that isn't already covered by the many previews you've already seen.
So, what do you think? Will you be watching "V"? Did you see the original? Leave us a comment.
