The original Being Human was one of the best British shows in years. Inventive, original despite sounding like the opening line of a bad joke with a great cast and good fun. The inevitable American remake while not as good is still very enjoyable with a lot to reccommend it to genre fans with a very good cast but oh so very fammilliar. We have vampire Aidan, (the american version of vampire Mitchell no doubt named after actor Aidan Turner who played him) a tortured vampire which has become a cliche in vampire shows now and his friend Josh a werewolf, (the american version of George) who move into a house in Boston in an effort to rediscover their lost humanity and they discover the house is hounted by ghost Sally (the american version of Annie). Head vampire Bishop (the american Herrick) is the best character for me and a lot of episodes seem to be direct remakes and copies of the original British show though very well done remakes you can't help thinking you have seen it al before and can't help comparing the 2 shows though the show does bring up its own original episodes and twists on the original British versions. Show has finally just started showing on British tv presumably they didn't want both versions on tv at the same time and while not the best genre show out there it is enjoyable enough to make you want more.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In Boston, three unique housemates: Aidan, a vampire these two hundred and sixty years; Josh, two years a werewolf; Sally, for almost six months a ghost. Against the odds they strive to come to terms and, as far as possible in the circumstances, lead normal lives.

All have formidable problems. Josh needs complete isolation every full moon. Aidan tries to reform but a recent blood-drenched lapse will cause him much grief. Sally has a score to settle with her boyfriend, he the one who killed her.

This first season treads much the same ground as its acclaimed British predecessor, but plans to go its own way in the next. The British version arguably contained more charismatic stars, better special effects and of course the element of surprise - so much in it startlingly innovative. This does not mean the American version should be ignored. It still packs a punch, though naturally more so with viewers unfamiliar with the outcome of various storylines.

Despite all the weird and wonderful goings-on, this is primarily a series about friendship - difficulties overcome when working together, certain aspects more moving than one might expect. Steadily the series becomes addictive, culminating in a worthy climax.

Not everything works, those wolves included. By the way, has there been severe editing of Episode 10? All seems set up for a dramatic cage fight. It barely begins before a perplexing moving on.

13 episodes. A bonus of 45+ minutes. In it tribute is paid to the original (which the stars were advised not to watch). The three frankly discuss their roles (those wolf attachments making life difficult). With impact here and in the show itself is Mark Pellegrino as Aidan's "maker" Bishop, ruthlessly determined his creation not stray from the fold.

Worth a watch. What next for the series when branching off on its own?

After having seen the UK version - and loved it - I was looking forward to a new take on this series; what I thought would be the Hollywood treatment, like - let`s say True Blood. I was dissapointed. This is just as subtle as the UK version - only more boring and less charming. The pictures are gloomy, one gets the feeling it was filmed with poor lighting and a hand held camera. The boys Josh and Aidan are adorable, but the main female caracters Sally and Nora are unsympathetic. Meagan Rath is nowhere near Lenora Crichlows portrayal of Sally the ghost. Rath comes across as vengeful and selfcentred. And what on earth does Josh see in Nora? Anyway - if you need to choose - go for the UK version. It even has better special effects!

I am a huge vampire fan so I love this kind of thing anyway. It is the American adaption of the hit UK series Being Human. Of course slightly different but very much the same as well. The story line in Season 1 is almost identical to the British version. The only difference I can see is the fact that this Americal version hasn't got the comedy element to it, it seems like it is meant to be serious. The British version is very funny. I can not deceide which one I prefer, I love them both. If you love The British version then you should at least like this US version. Be aware that this is a Region 1 copy and will only play on a Region 1 player or a multi region player.

Not quite as good as the BBC version but stands by itself. Added extra story lines in, so they could get extra episodes ( whats wrong with having fewer episodes). Never the less, great acting good story, though I do think Bishop was better then Herrick.

Format: DVD
The DVD arrived very quickly considering they said it would not be here untill the end of the month. The only issue is, if watching it in the UK you have to change settings on your DVD player, which is sometimes difficalt, in order for it to play. This was not mentioned in the discription.
But the DVD(S)are great quality and so funny. If you like the english version of Being Human, you will love the US one. The special effects are in a completly different leage and there is a lot more humor in it. Further more they stick to the more convetional ideas of the supernatural.
I love it :D
