A new TV series kicks off tomorrow night: V. By new, I obviously mean a re-imaging of an old TV series, which seems to be happening a lot these days. Firefly’s Morena Baccarin gets to be the leader of the evil aliens for this one, which had to be a fun role for her.

It looks like the best movie released this weekend will be The Men Who Stare at Goats. This one has been making the Film Festival rounds, and the response has been very positive.

Also hitting the big screen Friday is The Fourth Kind, a thriller about alien abduction. And while it is more Thriller than Sci-Fi, I do have to mention The Box, which has a strange enough premise that it just might qualify for this site.
