    I don't know when it will be re-aired, although ABC.com will be streaming it with optional commentary, starting Nov 7. I know that's not the same thing as watching on TV. I'm sure it will be shown again at some point.

    I saw it last night and thought it was ok. I'll reserve judgment until after the first block of episodes are done.

    It was shown last night. It was...ok. I doubt it'll go beyond 1 season though.

    I saw it briefly last night, it was ok for a pilot. The original V back in the 83/84 was memorable because of the lack of advanced CGI back then (compared to today's) so it was pretty engaging. Michael Ironside did a pretty good acting. Obviously, most people who watched the original V be watching this series more with a bias of those fond memories back then (and be dissapointed perhaps if the memory created didn't have the same emotional resemblance). I was dissapointed after watching FAME the movie. No Leroy, no Bruno, No deal! :)
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Considering it was the highest rated pilot since Lost, I wouldn't be so sure.

    13+ million viewers, and good demo ratings.

    It doesn't look like ABC will be reairing it on broadcast (at least not according to their schedule) but as mentioned you'll be able to see it online starting Saturday.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    The pilot aired last night but I missed it. Here's the schedule.

    If you missed the pilot or any future episodes, Hulu and ABC will have the Tuesday broadcast available by Saturday online.

    It had 13+ million viewers, but that doesn't mean that all or even most of those 13+ million viewer would were impresses, or would want to watch more of it.

    It's a VERY large number for a pilot, is all my point was. Largest audience for a network pilot in 5 years. If that many people were interested enough to watch the pilot, chances are a pretty good amount of them will stick around based solely on the premise.

    Was pleasantly surprised with the second episode. Since they packed so much into the pilot, I wasn't sure how they would handle the pacing of a regular episode. I think it was fairly well done, still not sold on the depiction of the visitors on the ship, they seem a little cardboard. The conspiracy theme (anyone could be a visitor) seems like it will be the overarching thread throughout this season. Although this was done to death on Battlestar Galactica (anyone could be a Cylon) I am hoping this show will put a different spin on it. Will continue watching for now...
