What can save the stinkiest cheese?

Wandering around the 'net, aimlessly looking for other stuff, I stumbled onto the story that ABC is going to air a "re-imagined" version of the 1980's sci-fi series V. Those of you who remember V have probably worked hard trying to forget it, and if the new version isn't almost completely different from the original, it too will find a place on the special shelf reserved for only the stinkiest cheese.

I wouldn't bother mentioning that a future bad TV series is in the works, but the role of the female leader of the reptilian alien invaders will be played by Morena Baccarin, seen here in a publicity still from the Joss Whedon series Firefly and looking pretty gosh-darned mammalian to me.

In Men In Black II, Lara Flynn Boyle played yet another alien invader disguised as a hot chick, and in that role she spoke this deathless line of dialogue.

Silly little planet. Anyone could take over the place with the right set of mammary glands.

Please no more calls. We already have a winner.

There's a step down, from an awesome series like Firefly to a 'reimagining' of V.

Truly, Firefly was awesome but then, so is Morena Baccarin. We'd all love it if all TV was a good as that show but since it's not, I'll certainly settle for looking at her gorgeous self.

To be fair, the 'reimagining' of Battlestar Galactica was better than the original. So there is some small hope.

As any regular reader will guess, this was a not very subtle ruse to post a picture of Morena Baccarin.

'Cos she's so purdy.

Sub-tle, Matty Boy.

Well, it's got to be better than the original--that sucked.

Rather like the original of Battlestar Galactica. There's only one way to go.
