Page 2

Yes, Page 2 has returned. For a while the excess bits were not enough to build a regular Page 2 column, but I’ve recently been noticing items piling up that I wished that we had gotten to post on the site, but just didn’t have time. I’m not sure how regular this column will be published (and we’ll most likely take a break during the Sundance Film Festival). That said, enjoy the return of Page 2!

David Goyer Leaving FlashForward


Things haven’t been going as planned for FlashForward, ABC’s Lost-replacement sci-fi drama that debuted last fall. Ratings have dropped steadily for the series since it launched, it lost Marc Guggenheim as its first showrunner in November (who was replaced by co-creator David Goyer), and then ABC decided to extend the show’s hiatus until March to avoid January competition. Oh, and it’s also sort of terrible.

Now ABC has another reason to sweat — Goyer has announced that he’s stepping down as showrunner as well. The series still has five episodes to shoot of its remaining 23-episode season order, and it’s not yet known who will be replacing Goyer.

If you had issues with the V series premiere tonight, there is a chance that the series could get better as the season goes on, especially now that we’ve learned that Chuck executive producer/writer Scott Rosenbaum will be taking over the show as executive producer/showrunner. The fledgling series is no stranger to creative struggles. Original showrunner Jeff Bell (Angel, Alias) was replaced in the summer by Scott Peters (The 4400), who also wrote the pilot. Peters will continue working on the show, but the heavy lifting will now be Rosenbaum’s duty.

The First 8-Minutes of ABC’s V


ABC has released the first 8-minutes of the new series V, which premieres on Tuesday, November 3rd at 8:00pm ET/PT. For those who don’t know, V is a re-imagining of the 1980s miniseries about the world’s first encounter with an alien race.

Simultaneously appearing over every major city in the world, the Visitors (or V’s) promote a message of peace. Through their generous offer to share advanced technology, the V’s build a following that may actually hide a more malevolent agenda, one that twists a very deep component of human nature — devotion. While the world quickly becomes fascinated with the V’s and their link to wonders just beyond the reach of human understanding, FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) discovers a secret hidden beneath the skin of every V – a secret that may threaten the lives of everyone close to her. Yet for her teenage son, Tyler (Logan Huffman), the V’s are his ticket to something big and hopeful-a new chance for mankind to unite in common goals. To Chad Decker (Scott Wolf), a career-hungry news anchor, his exclusive interview with Anna (Morena Baccarin), the leader of the V’s, is crucial to his dominating the airwaves. Also unsure about the Visitors is Father Jack (Joel Gretsch), a priest questioning his faith in the wake of the Visitors’ arrival. Seeking answers outside the church, Father Jack discovers there are other dissidents who believe the Visitors are not who they say they are, including Ryan Nichols (Morris Chestnut), who is faced with his own life-altering decision when the V’s show up. Never has there been more at stake — it truly is the dawning of a new day. “V” also stars Lourdes Benedicto as Ryan’s fianc’e, Valerie, and Laura Vandervoort as Lisa, an alluring Visitor who sets her sights on Tyler.

Watch the first 8-minutes of V embedded after the jump.

Comic-Con: Human Target and V Pilots Reviewed


Even though Comic-Con doesn’t really start until Thursday, the Slashfilm gang arrived on Wednesday to take in the preview night. Adam and I took the opportunity to check out the pilot premieres for the new V series, as well as Human Target. They also premiered the pilot for Vampire Diaries, but we took the hint from the majority of the audience and bolted before that started.

Human Target stars Mark Valley (Fringe), as an all-around badass who uses his many skills, including a heightened sense of observation and a mastery of subterfuge, to protect his clients. The series also stars Chi McBride, playing a character not unlike his Pushing Daisies detective role, and Jackie Earle Haley as a badass of a geekier persuasion.

V is a remake of the classic 80’s miniseries, which was about an alien invasion that eventually grows to enslave mankind in a totalitarian government. The new series shares much with its predecessor, but it’s unclear right now how far they’re going to go with the original story. The series stars Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost), Morena Baccarin (Firefly), and Joel Gretsch (The 4400).

View a quick video discussion about what Adam and I thought of these series pilots after the break:
