    It has good reviews
    Bet its totally different to the lush version we remember as kids (ie Battlestar Galactica different)
    But it was essential viewing back then and I'm fair old looking forward to it

    Now you are just making me laugh :w00t:

    Watched all the ST shows, hated Firefly and got bored with the 4400

    the simpsons is so stupid, it used to be good before. now its just comedy clips without no plot

    Taping it just now but noticed earlier my sci fi channel now says syfy - when did that change? Sure it didn't say that a couple of days ago when I put it into sky+. What's that all about?

    Was interested but it's been fairly negatively received over the pond.

    hated firefly?!?!?!?! wonderful piece of tv and serenity is the film star wars wants to be.

    the 4400 is the tv show heroes should've been.

    As for V, seen 6 eps and it's fairly good, seems a bit rushed at times but it's better than most things on tv right now.

    Remind me to check with you first if you watch a show I'm interested in. Seems you pick all the doomed shows.

    Nothing worse than a show you like being cancelled (well I guess death maybe worse).

    Few examples of shows I liked that got cancelled:

    Pushing Daisies
    Journeyman
    Sarah Connor Chronicles
    Futurama (though resurrected)

    That's all I can remember at the moment.

    V is likely to get cancelled too, another reason I'm not watching. I'm more or less not watching any new shows unless they get renewed for a second series, and even then I'm wary.

    all great shows. sarah connor chronicles was gutting as the campaign to get a 3rd season was massive and then dollhouse gets kept on instead, as good as dollhouse at times threatened to be it was like getting a kick in the balls everytime I watched it and now like you I'm wary of getting too attached to any new show.

    Not sure about V getting cancelled, it's pretty much "on the bubble" which means it could go either way although I wouldn't put any cash on it coming back despite decent(ish) ratings.

    Yeah I saw it on the bubble list and with no real faithful following established yet and less than stellar reviews I'm waging it gets cancelled.

    Makes me laugh everytime I pass yet another billboard with anna's face on it. We started watching this 5 months ago ffs. Sci Fi channel must like burning money.

    You mean SyFi.

    Why is it called V?
    Still prefer the original. I usually hate remakes.

    Thought it was SyFy?

    V is for Visitors. And you're right - original was better. They shouldn't mess with originals I think they're for reminiscing about how bad tv really was then!

    I don't understand why they had to needed to change the spelling of the channel name.
