Being Human is Coming Stateside!
If you watch BBC America, you probably watched Being Human. Which in my honest opinion has been my favorite featuring of a Vampire, Werewolf, and Ghost to date. The acting in it is superb and the story really draws you in. Also, it’s gritty and they didn’t all live in a fancy house that was obviously well beyond their means.
So you’ll know why I’m a little hesitant when I found out that SyFy was picking up a stateside version of the show. Now, I have to give SyFy some credit where it is due, even though they don’t pull in monumental numbers, Stargate: Universe and Caprica are my top shows. I can’t wait for this show to come out so that I can give it a full review. If it is anything close to as good as the British version with heavy duty drama, I’ll be a very happy camper. Take a look at the pictures from the set of this new version and get yourself ready folks it’s going to be a fun ride.
Being Human – The series follows three paranormal, 20-something roommates living in Boston – vampire “Aidan” (Witwer), werewolf “Josh” (Huntington) and ghost “Sally” (Rath) – as they struggle to hide their dark secrets from the world, while helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives and trying to be human. Mark Pellegrino plays Aidan’s charismatic but menacing vampire mentor “Bishop” (Pelligrino).
