"V": The Series

We have been seeing the promo for weeks. ABC's new series "V" begins tonight. Ah! Yet another remake. I remember seeing the re-runs of the original series as a child.

Does anyone else remember the Visitors in their orange jumpsuits?

I wonder why, orange was considered a Sci Fi, futuristic colour in the 80's. After all, anyone who has seen Legally Blonde (2001) knows that "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed". But I have seen on occasion costumers dressed as those 80's aliens.

Now for the new series, they have got Morena Baccarin playing the beautiful alien in whom everyone trusts.

In this early century, the futuristic colour is silver toned, white or gray (I wonder why).

Now I have to admit that that is lovely. You could make that suit as a costume for a Sci Fi convention during the week-end and wear it to the office on Monday. Talk about practical costuming!
