Being Human

Being Human is a new Syfy series that tells the story of three roommates trying to make lives for themselves in the city. The difference in their story and thousands of others is that one of them is a vampire, the other is a werewolf, and the third one is a ghost. In the second episode the group has to deal with the fiancee of the ghost coming over for a visit.

There’s some interesting potential story here from a couple of serialized elements of the show that focuses on other vampires and a family member that learns the truth about her werewolf brother. The question is will the show devolve into cheesy soap opera drama or truly do something interesting with these characters? It’s a little early to tell but the odds are about half and half.

Check out the clip below and share your thoughts.

  1. Urgh… somehow, this didn’t capture the vibe of the the British original at all.

    Here, we have season three starting this sunday (yay!)

  2. I wasn’t going to watch the American version of Being Human but I did. What a waste. BBC’s Being Human is far superior to the drivel on SyFy. I will just buy the British Seasons as they come out. Mitchell you sexy beast, George you wild man and Quirky Annie are so much better

  3. Couldn’t agree more with the 2 posts above mine! My sister and I have been loyal followers of the BBC version since it started & this one is nothing like it in terms of quality. So excited for season 3!! I’ll take British sci-fi any day of the week =)

  4. it’s a big stinker that’s what it is. One episode is enough! Don’t mess with the original!

  6. Sigh… Completely agreeing with all of the above… yet another instance where US TV producers see a successful, witty and well done British show and proceed to make a poorly conceived and poorly orchestrated remake.

    For another example, see MTV’s “New” show Skins. The BBC Skins was fantastic… MTV: looks like a fictionalized “16 and Pregnant” to me… :(

    Next thing you know, we’ll have the Americanized Bastardization of Doctor Who. They already talked about an American Torchwood…

  7. Unfortunately they don’t seem to be very god at maintaining the quality of the story lines and quirkiness of the characters when they rework British programs for the US. This appears not to be an exception. I like the UK version but not off to a good start with the US version. The characters are less appealing.
