Being Human Comic Con Panel Madness!

Being Human is a show about three 20 somethings living together, but they are a ghost a vampire and a werewolf. It's based on a UK series I enjoyed the first series of and the Syfy North American re-boot is getting a third season, because it's the SyFy show that has a 52% female audience, and what science fiction network doesn't want to court women?

The panel was, of course, Sam Witwear as Vampire Aidan, Meaghan Rath as Ghost Sally, Sam Huntington as Wolverine Josh and showrunner/co-creator Anna Fricke.

We started off with some quick flashes of what's to come in Season 3, including Sally wrestling with some smoke poltergeist and wearing another outfit (?!?!?!?!), we saw a shadowy werewolf figure and Suren waltzing around a velvety room. Honestly there wasn't a ton of Season 3 footage that lasted longer than 3 seconds, so I'm not sure how much help anyone can be, and I think that was the point.

The chemistry between all three leads is 100% real and Anna has a sharp wit as well, so the entire panel took a weird tone. Sam Huntington told us straight away that we weren't going to learn anything about Season 3, so the rest of the hour was spent talking about annoying personal habits (Huntington is gassy) an trying to tease out something – ANYTHING.

As someone who only has an idea of the show from it's UK counterpart, when Anna Fricke said that she only watched the first series of Being Human UK and then stopped to avoid overlap, I abandoned all hope of knowing what what was going on when Meaghan said about wanting to be Dog The Cat Man Dude and that we'd only know what that was if we were following all of them on Twitter.

[It's a prop sculpture that is a cat wearing a catcher's mask that they thought was a dog, but it's just named “Dog” and they started calling it the Cat Man Dude, hence the title. You're welcome] In the spirit of that comment, here are my Being Human Panel Tweets. All relevant information made it there.
