Original article follows below.
Another pilot screened during Comic-Con’s preview night Wednesday was ABC’s remake of the classic 1980’s sci-fi miniseries V. The series — which premieres midseason 2010 — comes from The 4400 creator Scott Peters and stars Elizabeth Mitchell as FBI agent Erica Evans and Laura Vandervoort and Morena Baccarin as the aliens Lisa and Anna, respectively.

- “…had plenty of intriguing moments, as several of the characters tried to process what was occurring, including a reporter (played by Scott Wolf) who sees his star rise after he meets Anna [played byMorena Baccarin], and Father Jack Landry, a priest played by The 4400’s Joel Gretsch…Gretsch has some of the best moments in the pilot…”
- “The V pilot suffers a bit from feeling rushed – we are shown events that obviously are supposed to happen over the course of weeks, but with only a 44 minute running time, it’s sometimes hard for some of the things occurring to resonate, and I found myself wishing it was a two-hour pilot.”
- “However, there is a ton of potential here for a very strong ongoing series, and some nicely done revelations near the end set the stage for bigger things to come.”
