Remember the 8o's mini-series "V" ? It was pretty much an extended version of the Twilight Zone episode, "To Serve Man." Aliens come to earth and solve all of mans problems. As it turns out, their purpose for doing so was a bit nefarious, as human beings turned out to be one of their favorite take-out choices! Well, "V", as most other TV and movies productions that had any sort of success in the past, is being remade. Being a fan of the first, I was excited to see the trailer for the new series, coming out in the Fall of '09. It actually looked pretty decent, but what really struck me was some of the dialogue in the clips that are shown.
Take a look for yourself and see if anything stands out:
Hmmm.... Let's see...
~Anglican Pastor warns, "Gratitude can morph into worship".
~Alien adoring teenage son tells mom, "you know what the 'V's' call it? Spreading HOPE!!!"
~Head alien warns media interviewer, "Just be sure not to ask anything that will paint us in a negative light".
~Head alien in interview, "Embracing CHANGE is never easy, but the reward for doing so is far greater than anything you can imagine".
~Right-Wing Extremist' guy, "they are positioning themselves as the saviors of mankind".
~FBI lady, "They are arming themselves with the most powerful weapon out there...devotion"
