V: Initial non-spoilery reaction in a nutshell.  
A bit rushed for 46 mins, but overall pretty awesome.

Is this going to be a series or a mini like the original? Anyone know?
I'm feeling: hopefulhopeful

I do believe it's a series :-) It did leave me reeling a bit, but in a good way. Flashforward is awesome, too - Jack Davenport! John Cho! Twisty-plot, angst galore, and really well-written.

A series! Yey! I think they tried to set up a lot of the base elements of the original within too short a space of time - lizard faces, fifth column, earth sympathisers etc - and the pilot really deserved an hour and a half.

The original show was my childhood obsession and stuff of nightmares (I've never quite got over the gerbil eating!) and I went in to this one pretty cynical, but overall I was pretty impressed with how they managed to deliver their own spin on the story.

Flashforward, unfortunately, has been leaving me a bit cold. I'm finding it all a bit boring to be honest (especially the endless repetitions of the same flashforwards), however I haven't watched MOnday's ep yet andhave heard that it's pretty good, so I'm going to stick it out till the end.

Not been on UK TV yet and no airdate so far.
