    EM: You can start with that 3.

    Never mind!

    RM: We’re gonna start with question number 3.

    V is known for having real hard fans stated back to the original series, why do you think the show has such college following.

    EM: You know,ok here what’s drawn me into things: there’s this
    feeling that I have where I know that I’m gonna have an happy hour if I
    watch it. I feel like the original had that. It was an escape, it was an

    MC: There’s a lot of surprises in the pilot episode.

    EM: I don’t even care if it has been leaked and you think you’ve
    seen it. It still will shock you. I read the script, I read everything,
