"Fay re: "V""
Yes, it is a new spin-off/remake/continuation of the former tv show/mini series.
Back then it dealt with the social implications of things like the
Nazi's treatment of the Jews. Today, it's a whole deeper/darker story.
I have no idea how to get it. In fact, some fans were complaining that
they aren't even playing the episodes online like they did last year,
so if people don't dvr them, they miss them.
Oh, and yes, they still do the dislocate the jaw thing, the effect was
of course much more sophisticated, but so very much a tribute to the
CGI of the day.
The best part is that are using the actress from the original as the
mother of the current 'queen'...she was 'infected' by the 'human skin'
and turned against her own, by somehow (we've yet to get full details)
turning against her own kind...so her daughter has her in a 'dungeon'
of sorts....with mossy looking pods, but she's still wearing designer
I hope you can get to see it. I just hope it doesn't turn in such a way
that I do not want to watch it. I was worried when they went to the
Vatican...but then it went right along with things we know will
happen...the infiltration of the Church!
