If It's Monday ~ It's John Barrowman Time ~!

Yes indeedy boys and girls , it's Barrowman time .

It's interesting how a show can evoke memories.

Yesterday , and I suspect for a few days more , the SciFi Channel ( I Loathe Their New Logo !)
has been running the original series " V " .

Yes , that one.

The one where Marc Singer still looked good , circa the original " BeastMaster." it.

I loved Kodo and Podo so I don't want to hear the snickering from the peanut gallery.

Besides, Singer's ass was pretty cute in that costume.


" V " circa 1983.

Before " Aliens" , there was 17 year old Robin , giving birth via C-section to human looking and one ....not so much. Still scary shit when the second not so human baby pops out...literally.

Before " Nightmare on Elm Street and Freddy Krueger, there was Willy played by Robert Englund. Aliens showing humanity to the humans..nice touch there Mork.

Sorry..but I dare you to tell me that those costumes on " V " did not beg for a " Shazzbot ".

Of the original eight hour series, you can mark the spot where Kenneth Johnson left the production.

Not even Michael Ironside who plays a bad ass like no one else could save the end.

Oh air balloons, cute blond hybrid child who is no longer the venom spitting tyke who kills ...because she can dammit.......bouncy uplifting closing music....

It was all I could do not to look for Lorne Green and the original voice over for BSG.


If you had told me that the series was done in 1973, that would have made more sense...but 1983 ?

I guess I will give the pilot a shot tomorrow...I'm gonna DVR it.

If you think I am gonna miss "NCIS" found this blog by mistake.

Consider yourself Dinozzo'd .

LMAO, Aunty!!!

I got up and stumbled about as I do every morning. Turned on the TV to catch a bit of the news and what was on????? V, of course. You knew it was '83. Shoulder pads. Lots and lots of shoulder pads. Even on the guys.

And yeah, Singer did have a sweet posterior back in the Beastmaster days. Amos' wasn't bad either, and who can resist Rip Torn as a bad guy? Altogether enjoyable closet indulgence.

'Course Ironside is the bad guy the not-so-nice girl in us wants to save from himself.
