PRODUCTION NOTES

  • “As for ‘The Siege,’ I have a number of interesting scenes in that one. David Hewlett and I even have a fair amount to do together in it. I don’t want to give anything away, but in many ways ‘The Siege’ pays homage to our pilot episode. Beckett is once again put in certain situations that he wants no part of. You’ll have to tune in, though, to see how the poor guy copes.” (Actor Paul McGillion, in an interview with SciFiAndTvTalk’s Steve Eramo)
