The much anticipated remake of the classic sci-fi television miniseries “V” arrived at Comic-Con International in San Diego on Saturday. Ballroom 20 was packed 4700 strong for a special viewing of the pilot episode, followed by a short question and answer session with the cast and executives.
“Where were you when JFK was shot? Where were you on 9/11? Where were you this morning?” asks the voiceover kicking off the pilot, evoking a tone of impending, historic-level doom. Each one of the main characters is introduced through short vignettes, wherein their ordinary lives are interrupted by what seems to be a rather long earthquake.
Tyler Evans (played by Logan Huffman), a teenager, is seen getting in trouble with his mother, Erica Evans (played by Elizabeth Mitchell, from “Lost”), for staying out late at a party and getting in a fight.

With V, what potential do you see for storytelling?
“One of the reasons I chose it is because I don’t like to be bored. I truly belive that it’s almost limitless. You always have a lot of interpersonal relationships. I even haven’t met – on camera – half of the actors that I’m working with. You have things that are the way they are now, and then they could go in any different direction. I cannot stand when things go into a formula – I like things to be active, I like to be interested, and I like things to be sexy.”
