V 83' vs V 09'

Okay ladies, be careful and don't slip on my drool!

In preparation of the premiere of V, syfy has played the 83' version with Marc Singer.

Most commonly known as "The Beast master"

I knew who Marc Singer was right away, because of Beast master. Love those hunky shows, mostly just for the view.
I must admit I didn't even know the was a older version of V. Am I alone in this?
It was originally a 3 part mini-series, then turned into a show with a couple of more movies to follow later. We got to watch the mini-series version. I sorta liked it but there were too many screw ups in the voice alterations and even in the scenery. BUT..come's MARC SINGER!! As long as you just look at him and let your mind wonder, who cares that the plot is about aliens!

While watching part 2, He was being escorted out of a room by guards and the back pockets of his jeans were much darker then the rest of his jeans.

I asked hubby..Did they tear off his back pockets?
He says..No, why?
Cause that is what it looked like. me a raised are sooo busted!
What? with mock innocence
You were soo checking out his butt!
I can not deny.
Hubby tried to convince me that he wasn't good saying..His eyes are too close together! LOLOLOLOL

The new V, aired last night. Did you even watch it or did Biggest Loser win the evening?

They definitely did some changes to the story line and some real cool updated technical effects. I really didn't get into it as much as hubby. I found it sort of confusing as to who the main characters are. If Marc Singer was the stud in the first one, who is the stud now? My only guess is Joel Gretsch.

I know him from "4400"

He is good looking, but is no Marc Singer! His part in the show really didn't impress me. I was expecting him to be in a strong male role, not as a confused priest.

So far I am not inclined to watch it again. I really didn't get drawn into it enough. The question is..Is hubby going to forgo NCIS for V permanently?
I hope not! I don't think I could go long without Mark Harmon!

I watched the actual V miniseries back in 1983 and LOVED it! My son and I watched half of it sunday and I dvr'd the rest. Dvr'd last night's show so we could finish watching the 80's version first. Hope I like the new one. Yes, Marc Singer was a hottie. I loved Beastmaster. And Mark Harmon, also a hottie. I think it's the name. I know another hott Mark (if his wife is reading this, I only look, I promise!! It's like window shopping.)

I figured the special effects will be way better in the updated version. I just hope they keep up the original theme of the resistance fighters.

Never watched the first one but knew this was a re-make. Won't watch the re-make either LOL

I didn't watch it, watched NCIS instead. Gotta love the eye candy. That's part of the reason I watch Criminal Minds. How many more hot guys can they get on there?

Oh, yum. I don't know about the new show...but the original had some serious candy for the least, according to your artfully downloaded photos there.

Is that your new screen wallpaper?? HA! THAT would make hubby stand up and take notice!

If there are aliens, hybrid humans, spaceships, other worlds, parallel universes, giant organisms taking over Earth or anything in between, my husband watches it. While he rubs my feet. That's our compromise. I think I came out on top there. =)

Wow Marc Singer! You brought home memories.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Spot...Hubby enjoyed it a lot, so I do beleive you will too.

Grace...I don't blame you.

Tinkerschnitzel...I wish we had watched NCIS, I'm going to have to get my own t.v.

Kathryn...I was trying to find a wallpaper size of Mark Harmon. Yeah that would get him!

Mindy...What a lovely compromise! Unfortunetly, that would never work over here.
Thanks for stopping by!
