Syfy Digital Press Tour: Being Human looks towards Season 2
by Doc on Oct.14, 2011, under Television
Our first press panel of the day was with the cast of Being Human: Meaghan Rath, Sam Witwer and Sam Huntington. We met them all last year before the show first aired, and having met them and see them talk about the show turned me in to a fan then, and it proved out with the show. So it was great seeing them again, and they were fun to talk to as before. First, it was announced that Being Human will return again on Monday, January 16th, at 9pm ET to become part of the strong “Powerful Mondays” lineup. So, what can we expect in it’s sophomore season?
An SF movie based on a Reddit comment?

Can a simple comment on a web site be the genesis of a movie plot? Apparently yes, it can.
Apparently a user on Reddit posited the question, “”Could I destroy the entire Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus if I traveled back in time with a modern U.S. Marine infantry battalion or MEU?” This question caught the attention of author James Erwin, who replied with a comment. And then, with some encouragement, started to flesh it out.
