Episode 78 – Queen of V – Jane Badler
Any time we hear that a television show is to be reimagined, and it is happening more and more often these days, fans of the original television series get a bit worried. Having a fond memory of what “was” and questions about what are they going to do with it now, becomes somewhat of a concern. You never want your memories to be blemished so to speak. So, “V” returned to television screens in 2009. Did they remake it well or was it a “bomb”? Eugenia and Gerri discuss how they thought the show panned out in this episode. Did they tie it in well to the original series, did they at least pay homage to what went before, did they make it seem fresh and most importantly did it want new fans to seek out the original and see where it came from? It made Eugenia and Gerri seek out the show again! One of the things that they did well was to bring back some of the characters from the original series and they have an interview with one of them in this episode. She participated in one of Sci Fi’s iconic scenes, none other than Jane Badler, Diana herself the guinea pig eating scion of the Visitors. Jane has been a resident of Australia for over 20 years and has appeared in shows such as Mission Impossible, Cluedo and Neighbours to name a few. She is also an accomplished singer and you can hear some of her music on her website http://www.janebadler.com . Eugenia and Gerri thank Cultureshock Events for the opportunity to talk to Jane http://www.cultureshockevent.com So, listen on and you will see what they think!
