Sometime in the near future, we will be Visited by aliens. Count on it. Or are they here already? Perhaps in the form of struggling Belarussian forwards? Will they be of peace? Do they have the cure for cancer? Will TFS ever win a game? You can find out all the answers tonight at 7:30 on RDS, or 8:00 on ABC. We will be Visited.
Take me to your leader - Pleks continues to be the Habs scoring leader, with 13 points (tied with Squid). Game in game out, he's been our best player. I hope I never get tired of writing that. For the Thrash, Rich Peverley also leads with 13 points and is riding a 7-game point streak. Your alien leader is Anna (pictured above), played by Brazilian hottie Morena Baccarin, who the Whedonites will remember as "companion" (high-class prostitute) Inara from Firefly. Your Earth-bound leader is FBI agent Erica Evans, played by Elizabeth Mitchell, Juliet from Lost. (Is Juliet dead? Can you survive a nuclear blast if said blast resets the past and / or future? Man I am geeking out in this preview.)
The real lizards - first off, I don't even know if these new Visitors are in fact lizards underneath, like their Visiting counterparts from the 1980's miniseries that this V is a remake / reinterpretation of. But roll with me here for a second. There is something wrong with 46DD (© L Dude). He's unhappy. The most recent theory is that he doesn't have anyone to talk Russian with on the team. Or is it really that he has no one to talk alien with? We're through the looking glass, people.
As for the evil ugliness on the new V, we really don't know who's skanky yet, but I vote for smarmy newscaster Chad Decker, played by Scott Wolf. I still haven't forgiven Bailey for his performance during the intervention.
This preview idea is starting to lose steam. You know what would help? Guinea pig eating!
Your 3-man resistance cells - at practice yesterday, GMS was together. Pleks had La Connection Française on his wings. That put 46DD on the 4th line again, with CHips and Stewie.
In the pressbox watching V - looks like Dagger is still out. BGL has back problems again. Can we just cut him to get some cap space? As we reported in TMS, Hal Gill was injured at practice yesterday. On the good news front, Rhino skated this morning (alone, before the team). Stubbs is tweeting that Carle is in fact playing for Gill, and that TFS is getting the start.
