  2. It's an interesting idea, though hardly original. (And I'm not referring to it's British precursor, “Lia”)

    It's the old 'I've got a secret' theme, where most of the show revolves around keeping the neighbors (and the rest of the world) from finding out what the audience knows about the main characters.

    "Mr. Ed" was basically the same idea, just with a talking horse.

    Likewise with "My Favorite Martian", "Bewitched" and "I Dream of Jeannie" - same basic set-up, only the characters change.

    If they want to jazz things up a little, the vampire and werewolf (living with the ghost lady) could also be gay roommates or something.

    But it still sounds like lots of fun, and far better than having yet another lame reality show.

    I liked the werewolf, the rest I could do without. The vampire was not pleasant and had no substance. The ghost was ridiculously bubbly and without any secrets or depression.

    I love that you use my generation's examples. Yes, perhaps the three of them could be living together without Mr. Roper realizing that the girl isn't a lesbian.

    I definitely recommend giving it a try. I'm waiting for it to grab me. Right now, I love the werewolf and the house and that's it.

  4. I will give it a try... I am waiting for True Blood to return. I miss my foxy vamps and warewolves!

  5. I'm a weird bird, sis, (you know that), but I was more attracted to the vulnerable and funny werewolf and not the sleek and flawless vampire. It takes something special to warm me. I think you'll enjoy it. I seriously want that brownstone they're living in. Sw-eet!

  6. I'll give it a whirl. I never got into the Brit version.

  7. I need to see one more episode. The first 20 minutes or so I watched made me feel weird.

    I'm giving it another try, but honestly the characters as hollow as a chocolate easter bunny.
