V: Sci-Fi Take on Age of Obama

V's sweet-talking Hopey Change aliens are actually reptiles. Compliments of Aaron S.

Sometimes it's hard to prevent popular culture from spontaneously expressing incorrect thoughts, as with the upcoming ABC redo of V, which looks like a grim metaphor for Obamania. Via Big Hollywood:

Aliens arrive offering "hope" and telling us not to be afraid of "change."
To grab power they set out to manipulate the media and create a culture of devotion around themselves.
But they are not who they appear to be.
In fact, they're out to destroy our way of life.
Either someone's activated our right-wing sleeper agents at ABC or the network has no idea what they've created and will soon realize they are now stuck with a second multi-million dollar miniseries that can't be released on DVD.

Amazingly, it looks like the hero is a priest. I may have to check my cable guide and find the channel for ABC.

It's hard to deny there are parallels between the trailer above and the excellent docudrama on the Obamination Administration by

the original V was propaganda aganist what the left projected as fascism.

now that the left has acheived fascism, the blind followers dont know thats what they are part of, so they dont know that an antifascism flick is really an anti socilism thing now.

Does this photo hint that Prez Barry Obama is really an illegal alien? I actually thought he might be a borg drone. Resistance seems futile since he and his fellow Demo-borgs are doing whatever they can to destroy our way of life and we the people are seemly powerless to stop him.

Okay. The secret is out. Our whole government is nothing but a hit reality series for aliens. They record all the lies and outrage going on here and sit on three legged xcvbers munching dretys and snort and fart in appreciation of Obama's latest moves and Biden's latest statements.

In the internet comic "Irregular Webcomics", one of the characters is an ALASAUROUS who was elected President of the US on the promass to "eat all the polititions". The Speaker Of The House is a T-Rex.

And the leader insists to the media person, "Don't ask anything that will make us look bad"

My God, I am officially old enough to see that life is a circle. What's next? Are they gonna bring Diff'rent Strokes back? Ghostbusters? How the hell do these Hollywood people stay in positions of power when all they do is re-hash the old shit with a new label? The Obama comparison was amusing as well.

I don't think we'll come full-circle until Hollywood retools Space 1999.

SPACE: 1999 Remember that as a kid, still have tons of old stuff I can sell on Ebay if they remake it!

First season of that show was pretty good - War Games and Dragons Domain (inspiration for ALIEN) was top notch. I try to forget about Season 2 which was run by that Star Trek guy - cartoonish and awful! In the class of Galactica 1980.

Id love to see it reimagined the way they did with Battlestar Galactica. This time come up with a more plausible way or moving the Moon or use the original idea of placing it on an asteroid that gets knocked out of the solar system by another large object then use wormholes to move the base from solar system to solar system - put in place by an ancient long dead race - they would only have a few days to decide to jump ship or stay on course and see where they end up. Start it by redoing 1/2 of the best season 1 episodes then adding new ones.

As for the new V TV series - Ill have to wait until I see it completed for making a judgement on it. Johnson who made the original miniseries is also working on a big screen movie to continue that story decades after the first miniseries - discarding the events of V The Final Battle with an earth still under occupation. I hope he gets that made.

What? No Loopy, Loony, Lemming-Like Lying Leftist Liberal Loser trolls coming out to tell us we're all a bunch of knuckle-dragging, racist "Reptilophobes"?

I think it's time someone stood up for the alien invaders, er, I mean immigrants. After all, they're really just "undocumented" earthlings, eating the people that other Americans won't eat.
