V, rodent swallowing returning to TV

If there is one image from 1980s television that is permanently scarred into my brain (for various reasons), it has to be the hot alien from V: The Miniseries swallowing a guinea pig whole. V was a television event before there were television events--a must-see science-fiction extravaganza that had viewers glued to their TV sets and hiding under their covers.

It should be no surprise, then, that V is coming back to TV.

ABC sends V remake to pilot
