‘V’ offers mini-‘Firefly’ reunion
If you loved Joss Whedon’s short-lived sci-fi series “Firefly” or its movie spin-off, “Serenity,” you’ll want to turn on the TV Tuesday. Two members of the “Firefly” cast, Alan Tudyk and Morena Baccarin, star in the series premiere of “V” on ABC. Let’s take a look at how the new TV roles of some “Firefly” cast members compare to their times as space cowboys.
“Firefly” character: Space hooker Inara Serra
Now: Baccarin plays the leader of the alien Visitors on “V,” which means we still want to see what she’s covering up.
“Firefly” character: Pilot Hoban “Wash” Washburne
Now: While Wash was an open book, FBI agent Dale Maddox on “V” harbors a crush for his partner, Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell), and an even bigger secret.
The ‘Valemont’ Secret Is Finally Out, But This Kind Of Mythical Creature Has Its Own Rules
After six weeks of waiting, the “Valemont” secret is finally out. In the words of Eric (warning: this is a pretty major SPOILER if you haven’t been paying attention), “They’re vampires, all of them. Vampires.” It always seems to be vampires these days. Of course, the vampires at Valemont University “aren’t your storybook vampires,” star Kristin Hager, who plays Sophie, told Hollywood Crush a couple of weeks ago. “They’re sort of like a new breed of vampires.”
Just like “Twilight,” “True Blood,” and “The Vampire Diaries,” the “Valemont” vamps have their own mythology, Kristin said. “They can be out in the sun; there’s no turning to ash. They don’t have to drink human blood. They do have to drink blood, but it doesn’t have to be human blood. They don’t all have fangs — if you drink human blood, you have fangs, and if you drink animal blood, you don’t have fangs.”
I caught most of V last night. I enjoyed it and plan to tune in next week. Did you like V?
I’ve caught some of Valemont and it’s not too bad. That’s not to say it’s great, but over all, it’s okay. Have you seen any of the snippets of Valemont? What do you think of it?
