"Being Human" SyFy January!


Okay, new shows on SyFy usually don't get me too excited. I readily admit I am not a Stargate/Battlestar type of gal, but when they do something involving a ghost, a vampire and werewolf living together (no that is not the buildup for a punchline), I am curious.

"Being Human" is a re-imagining of the acclaimed BBC original series that follows three 20-something roommates: a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf who are struggling to keep their dark secrets from the world, while also helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives.

I'm definitely going to check it out. It'll probably be cheesy and soap-opera like and poorly written and mediocre acting, but I still have to see something with such an interesting premise. I still watch every Bigfoot movie they pump out, hoping maybe they finally get it. Hope this doesn't have the same result--complete disappointment.

  1. I saw this show's previews and just might watch it.... who knows, could be good.

  2. I'm digging the premise. That alone can suck me in to a show. Some shows, like Jericho, I thought the premise was lame-o and then it was like my favorite show ever. You just never know.

  3. Great series. I've watched it and wasn't disappointed. It's a show that appeals to my inner high-schooler. Like Buffy but more "real" (and sadly, without Buffy). That said, it IS a British series so it has that Brit-style flare to it but it's still one of my favorites from "across the pond". I just couldn't keep up on the damn series because the showings were so irregular. With it coming to SyFy, I'll be TiVoing now.

  4. Excellent insider info, MC. I think this one will be an Americanized version, so expect bland American Cheese on top instead of aged British cheddar. Honestly, though, I thought "The Office" US version was much better, so there's hope.

  5. Oh, wait, they're re-doing it? I thought it WAS the original you were talking about. If it's a re-shoot then ugh.

  6. It's a re-imaging, but if you liked "The Covenant" or "Blood and Chocolate" you might enjoy it. I think it has that feel to it.

  7. I'll be right there with ya. I wanted syfy, or is that syfu, to bring the british version over but an american version may be good.

  8. Barry;
    Fingers crossed. I'm really in the mood for a show like this, especially if the guys are hot. I have a thing for male werewolves. Vampires are just so anemic...

  9. I liked the Brit version.

    I hope this one is half as decent.

  10. I'm glad I didn't see the Brit one or I'd probably be disappointed.
