I ran into an American exchange student a few months ago and he told me he had two wishes in his life. One was that he would find his dream woman and the other was that Eric the Viking King would get his own series. Would you consider doing a spin-off if it was offered to you? -I think Eric the Viking King would be a brilliant sitcom. Probably set in a high school environment. Kind of like an updated version of Fresh Prince.

New V: Full of Information, Darwinian Mother Battles

By Graeme McMillan at i09

When new showrunner Scott Rosenbaum (Chuck, The Shield) took over running V, he had a problem: He didn’t know what the show was about, and he’d seen the first four episodes. Now, he promises that won’t be a problem.

Talking to the LA Times, Rosenbaum said,

I never was quite sure from the first four episodes what [the show] was really about, outside of just “Visitors have come.” What I told [the studio] about how I see it is that, at its spine, it’s really about two mothers and how far that they’re willing to go to protect their children. To me, Anna is the mother of all Vs. … One of the things that I wanted to make clear in my version of the show was that Anna is not evil at all: Anna is simply an animal. She’s a mother and she just wants to protect her children, her species, and she doesn’t have anything against humanity. She’s not evil. … We’re just something that stands in the way of her children’s future. In [that] way, Erica’s the same. … Even though it’s just Tyler, her son, I feel, metaphorically, she’s the mother of all children.

I’m excited for the return of V. I’m dying to know why they’re here. I keep thinking it’s some sort of breeding thing, since all the women are picking Earth men that they want, but none of the male Vs are.

What do you think of the interview? Will you watch Mildred Pierce?
