This just in from Bob Tinsley:
Today at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET there will be a hangout on Google+ with the creators of the web series H+, a Bryan Singer property (don’t think HE will be there!). They will have the director and both principal writers “and others”. I was invited, along with almost 1300 of my closest friends, but I don’t know if you have to be invited to attend.
H+ is a science fiction tale about the beginnings of The Singularity, or transhumanism, presented in 48 episodes of about 10 minutes each. The current episode is, I think, somewhere in the 30s. I’ve so far watched 20 episodes. It is told in non-linear fashion over a time period of several years. I am normally not a big fan of non-linear story-telling (hey! I’m an engineer; deal with it!), but I really like what I’m seeing.
One of the big deals here is the series creators’ use of the “second screen” (google it; if you don’t know what it is, you really need to find out.) It is the most extensive use of second screen I’ve run across with a deep website, Google+ discussions, and other things I haven’t had time to discover yet.
This is something you’ve got to pay attention to. (Yeah, yeah, ending on a preposition; adjust)
Big thanks to bro Tinsley for giving TVWriter™ this scoop.
EDITED TO ADD: H+ stars none other than our personal fan fave Alexis Denisof, so how can it be anything but great?
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD: We aren’t going to post the URL for the H+ website because it’s so visitor unfriendly. (Go ahead and try to copy a pic there. We dare ya.) But for those who want to get into this show we recommend this excellent Facebook Fan Page.
