    @corey -- Let's not forget WWE, which is absolutely hilarious! It holds the title for the worst dialogue in a show(for me), besides Supernatural, of course. To get back on topic, I'd have to agree - I don't know how they will pull this one off.

    What? Does this movie even hold a large enough fan base to carry a TV series? Syfy sucks....only when its not playing Being Human and Stargate reruns.

    The characters that lived through the movie will be replaced by no name actors
    SyFy means sh*tty VFX
    And then theyll pay Betany millions of dollars to make like a 30 second cameo

    nah. A sequel feature film would be decent, only if you give a better story line to it.

    The movie wasn't bad but I don't think it was good enough to warrant a TV series...
