It’s been two and a half decades since the original miniseries first hit TV, but now V is finally making a comeback next week on ABC, and we’ve got two new clips to give you a taste of what the show has to offer.
For those who didn’t see the original, the plot is about the arrival of a seemingly peaceful alien race on Earth, who say they have only good intentions. Slowly, however, its reveled that those intentions could mean bad things for the inhabitants of our planet. No word on how the plot will change from the original, but you could expect it to grow it’s own legs, much like Sci-Fi’s Battlestar Galactica.
In first clip, one of the cooler effects takes place. It’s the first communication between the alien race and the humans using a gigantic screen in the sky. Firefly’s Morena Baccarin plays Anna, the alien ambassador, and does a nice job of portraying a creepy calm.
In the second clip, Baccarin is joined by Scott Wolf, playing TV journalis Chad Decker in the first interview between alien Anna and the human race. Things get dicey when she asks not to be portrayed in a bad light.
Check out these clips after the jump, as well as the first 8 minutes of the pilot on ABC.com. Be sure to catch V on ABC, Tuesday, November 3, at 8pm/7pm Central.
