Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.
The news media swoons in admiration. The public is likewise smitten, except for a few patriots who circulate disturbing rumors on the Internet about the leader's origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: "Embracing change is never easy."
So, does that sound like anyone you know?

Gotta wait a few hours for me. I’m in California.
I watched the old mini-series over the weekend. My 15 year old son also watched it. He even liked it.
I hope the new one is good and has the same anti-Fascism themes.
Sounds familiar. But I can’t turn Obama off.
Yeah, it sounds like someone I know. I KNOW? The Cookie Monster! Yup, thatsit!
ABC’s rating must be way, way, down and they are desperate. Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm
They’re not running it in Nashville tonight (shoved to some overnight slot).
I spent an hour getting HD set up again on my desktop just to watch this tonight.
No link to the article.
I loved, loved the original when I was a young adult.
I will say that I had forgotten how cheesy it was. My kids thought the scene where Diana eats the guinea pig was very fake and funny (and they were right).
Its sci-fi, not politics. Production of this movie began long before O was elected and the story was written a long, long time ago............Relax dude!
Sounds like a clairvoyant wrote the original story.
My 15 year just said “are the V’s intimadated by Fox News?”
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.
OK...found it..its actually from the Chicago Tribune!
HERE WE GO!!!!!!! I saw the first few minutes already on a sneak preview on ABCs site.
Rumbles and rumblings....hmmm.
How about Visitors vs. ID-4 aliens???? LOL
The Vs have a message of hope!
Can anyone cough up $2,912 to keep the squirrels running?
The review in the paper bothered me when it said the Visitors are called the "V's". That's just stupid, and perverts the whole meaning of the title. And while the font for the letter V was *dripping spray paint*.
Sounds like a clairvoyant wrote the original story.”
The trailer for the new “V” series on ABC is spooky
The “Visitor woman leader” tells journalist not to “paint us in a negative way” !!!
Veiled threat like Dung, Obamagram, Axelrube, Gibber - to FOX
