“Being Human” Coming Soon!

– – Imagine a TV show about three roommates in their 20’s; sounds like familiar territory, right?  Not so if those roommates happen also to be a vampire, werewolf, and a ghost!   As the trio struggles to hide their dark secrets from the world, they help one another navigate the complexities of living double lives while trying to be human.  Such is the core premise of Being Human, a re-imagining on the Syfy network of a dark and witty BBC original series.

British humor and sensibilities don’t always translate well in the States, and so not everyone is happy with the idea of an Americanized reboot of an acclaimed British series.  Syfy has promised that this won’t be a poor recreation of the series, but we’ll just have to wait until the January 17th premier to see.

They had me, after all, with the werewolf character…I still miss “Oz” from Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

    I thought it was based on a best-selling paperback series! But, maybe those were just novelizations of the BBC-TV episodes.

      I’m not sure which came first, but the series was well-regarded, and hopefully the Syfy version will be a worthy adaptation!
