BlogoWriMo Day 3 - Are Aliens the New Vampires?

With all of the hoopla surrounding the premiere of V tonight, one must wonder...are aliens the next vampires? Is the market already saturated with vampires? Are aliens the new hot sexy non-humans of TV and movies?

I remember the original V series from back in the 80s. It was on Friday nights and my dad and I would watch it after he came home from bowling. Somehow I think it was probably innapropriate television for someone as young as I was because it scared the bejeesus out of me. All I remember is lizard people eating live gerbils and huge spiders and some creepy lizard baby birth.


I remember that being way more realistic.


Somehow I don't think this creepiness will cut it. However, the special effects look way better than some of our favorite vamp *coughTwilightcough* movies. But let's do some side-by-side comparisons shall we?


The Important Cast Members


Observations:

  1. V has old people; Twilight not so much
  2. V has a priest; Holy water doesn't hurt vampires
  3. Everyone is so serious! And is just me or does Scott Wolf look constipated?
The Bad Guys

Observations:

  1. Aliens who look human but are actually reptilian and possibly eat creepy stuff or vampires who drink human blood?
  2. Woman leader or male leader?
  3. Cleavage or chesticles?

The Star-Crossed Lovers


Observations:

  1. Human + alien or human + vampire?
  2. Matching outfits or matching intense stairs?
  3. Two words: Edward Pattinson

I think vamps have the edge, except in the bad guys category. Reptiles just creep me out. Even when the bad vamps killed Butt-crack Santa it was kinda hot. What are your thoughts?

OK speaking of alien shows- did anyone used to watch Roswell? I used to LOVE it. Vampire Diaries kind of reminds me of it. I had a huge crush on Max.

I will not be watching V. I can not add any more TV shows right now. It would seriously be cutting into my fanfic reading time.

I loved Roswell! That Max guy's ears really bothered me, they were huge! I love The Vampire Diairies tv show much better than the books. I keep getting twitter updates and people abbreviate it VD. I can't help but think venerial disease every time!

I won't be watching V either. Aliens seriously creep me out and give me nightmares. FC, you're gonna have to tough out the lizards by yourself. And I don't think vampires are going anywhere for a few more years.

"chesticles" - you crack my shit up. Can we add the matching outfits to the bad guy category? Cuz that would scare me. Personally, I don't think it would stand a chance against my vamps. However, I'm seriously hoping something takes the vampire stuff off the radar screen so that it can go back to being OURS! *stomps feet*

Meg said...

Aliens scare the shit out of me. Man eating vampires...I'm cool with. Plus, like you said, two words: Edward Pattinson.

P.S. I'm stomping my feet along with RSM, just for the hell of it.

cutie said...

My thoughts are that you are amazing. Mr. Cutie ADORES V. He agrees it looked WAY more realistic back in the diz day. <--is that how you spell is? hm... *I'z is lame*

I never did see V, in my defense we were of the broke when I was a kid, no cable for me *gasp* I KNOW. But we are recording it and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

PS. Robert Pattinson wins it all. Just sayin.

I could never replace aliens with vampires in my obsession/fad whatever! But ya got to remember that our Fadtastic world did go through an alien thang two other times that I can remember...once in the 80's/early 90's with things like V, Alien Nation, Alien, Alf(hehehe) and several other things and then later 90's with movies like Independence Day and Men in Black so who knows it could happen again?!

I had a BF years ago who loved this show, I really never liked it so much, it was creepy. And you know what I miss in the cast? The hottie??!? Where is he? I mean we have Robward, we have Eric, stefan , Damon ...
Anyway I guess I will never the less see it and give it a chance...

jrieggs said...

Wait, I thought I saw a preview of V with 2 priests in it and the other priest was way hot? I missed it this week but added it to the DVR for next week. I might have to actually sit down and watch it online though.

So did you actually watch it? Thoughts? Feelings?

uhyesplease said...

I have only seen the previews, and I don't really watch much TV anymore....So, on just because I'm TV fail, I won't watch it.

Does anyone else think that the pixie dark hair chick looks and sounds like Ashley playing Alice?? Weird. I keep thinking she's going to say, "You won't hurt her Jasper" or something, like that!

Anywhoo...random lamo comment over!!!!

Honolulu Girl from Trueblood Twilight said...

I never saw V when it came but I do remember it was HUGE!! So I'm wondering if I can fit this into my schedule of must watch shows. See I'm a Bravo Tv whore and I like all my Housewives, Flipping Out, etc... But there is always DVR. I can just record it and watch later. Ok, I'm in.

Alice said...

I won't be watching, because I live in retarted Europe. :(
Good thing we have the internets, but I won't be downloading that, I don't have a thing with aliens, and also not with vampires, I made an exception for the Cullens ;).

erikasbuddy said...

I really really think the big ALIEN INVASION is just here to keep the boys happy. I mean what guy likes vampires when they could be lookin' at a rockin hard body in spandex? Hence the aliens!! YES YES!!

OH!! And I was 7 when the 80s version of "V" aired and it scared the beejeepers out of me also!! The main part that I remember was this one dude pealed off his face and their was an alien face beneath his flesh. I don't think that I slept for a week!!

Vamps over aliens any day, natch!

Oh and peek-a-boo, I love you. To prove it I leave you some:
