MTV: "V" Cast / Pilot Screening Report


I was able to catch the pilot screening for ABC's reboot of "V" and I also spoke to the cast at San Diego Comic-Con. You can read my report for MTV HERE. In the interest of full disclosure, I not only watched the two mini-series and short-lived weekly episodes as a kid, but I collected the spin-off novels and DC comic and became a member of an unofficial fan club. When eBay became a "thing," my first purchase was the green vinyl House Of Pain 7" on Sub Pop. My second was a Visitor doll, the same visitor doll I salivated over at Children's Palace growing up.
