    Dear America

    Your bastardizations of good british shows must stop (then again british being human stopped being good around the time they though time travel was a good idea)

    Love Being Human

    @john

    As a fan of both,I can honestly say America’s BH is much better.

  • Kitsune

    As a huge fan of Being Human, I have to say Season 2 US was the worst piece of crap I have ever seen.

  • JFC

    British first two or three seasons far better than the American version.

    @John_M,

    It was the British producers who shopped it around to America (and Germany) in hopes of encouraging local versions — basically, following the model of The Office. No one is forcing them to sell the remake rights.

    I can’t help but think, with the type of scifi and fantasy that is actually getting critical acclaim and higher ratings (Walking Dead, American Horror Story even Teen Wolf) that the rest of the cable world is kind of passing Syfy by and their programming is just becoming irrelevant.

    It’s a bummer in a way because when scifi or fantasy shows are bland or fail, the execs blame it on the genre rather than the fact that the production values, writing and acting are usually mediocre and that’s the problem, not that it’s about ghosts or aliens.

    I don’t like the American version of BH not only because I think it lacks the charm of the original (at least the first few seasons) but also because it seems to be what’s wrong with Syfy in a nutshell: derivative fare that copies and waters down what’s popular on other channels, made on the cheap for a quick buck (otoh, TV is a business and buy cheap, sell high is a time honored business model) and that’s sad for a channel with an ‘Imagine Greater’ tagline.

    Can’t wait for this to come back. Have enjoyed watching Kyle Schmid in Copper now I can turn around and watch him in Being Human for a while. Hopefully they won’t kill him off.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Really like this show (like both versions)–can’t wait for it to come back

  • tv#1

  • Alex

    I just wished they worked on the Werewolf’s design and changed it all together. I hate it, It looks like a giant wereRAT! Seriously, what were the designers thinking giving the ok?

  • Liz

    Really awesome. Cannot wait for it to come back!
    This version is more serious. The British version not so much. It was meant to be more funny at their situations not the dramatic plot. Deal with it people. And if you don’t like it watch one or the other, but NEITHER is going anywhere. :) good day.

  • shokooh
