Apparently the remake bug that has infected the silver screen of late is a communicable disease…and has been transferred to the boob tube. ABC’s new series V is a remake of the sci-fi mini-series of the same name from the 80’s. I never saw the original series, so unfortunately I won’t be able to make any comparisons between the two. But that does mean I’m approaching this new take on it with a fresh set of eyes. So take that as you will.
