Only just watched the episode where Josh goes home. Bloody different to how the real series handled George coming home. But the highlight of that episode was at the end where Adian was telling Josh about what would happen.

I really saw them trying the comedy here as well. I dunno, it's just not working for some reason. Maybe I'm too in love with the real one and it's characters and how they'd react to things. I mean I do like this version, it's not as bad as it started out being. I just don't think they have the right mix of comedy, drama, fantasy and dullness that the original has down to perfection.

Maybe it's all up to which one you followed first. I watched this one first and love it. I eventually got around to watching the British version, and I prefer the US version MUCH more. I just think the British counterparts lack the charisma the US actors bring, with the exception of the ghost.

The British version's plot is every where. It feels like a kid with adhd writes the script.

How did you guys feel about the werewolf design? I thought it was pretty unique, and didn't look as fake as I was afraid it would.

I thought the design was fine. I'm not one to nitpick at stuff like that. I'm more interested in the characters and story than visual effects.

Haven't seen the last eppy or the ratings for it, but the past two weeks (after V-day) have gone up from the series low on V-day.

Last week's was a 1.4 07 MIL VIEWERS with a 0.6/2 in 18-49.

Good news and bad news...ratings are in for yesterday's eppy.

Good: Being Human goes up in.

Bad: Being Human goes down as well.

Let me explain, kids

Up in overall viewers..down a bit in 18-49. It tied SGU(bad) in 18-49, and that show is canned. However, it had about a 300,000 increase in viewers over SGU.

1.460 with 0.5/1 18-49 Being Human.
1.035 with 0.5/1 18-49 SGU.

Being Human had an edge as well in HH. 0.9/1 vs 0.6/1HH for SGU.

I think Syfy will renew Being Human...but I'm not 100% sure. The show has technically increased 3 weeks in a row in overall viewers.

Syfy Renews 'Being Human' For Season 2

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Syfy has renewed promising freshman drama series Being Human for a second season. In its January 17 debut, Being Human, an adaptation of the British series, averaged 2 million viewers to become Syfy's most watched new scripted series winter premiere since Battlestar Galactica in 2005. The series, produced by Zodiak USA and Muse Entertainment, has solidified its status as Syfy’s most successful winter scripted series launch in 6 years with a season-to-date average of 1.8 million viewers. It is also the channel's most female-skewing series ever, with women comprising 53% of its audience. “Being Human has proven to be a winner for Syfy on all fronts,” said Syfy's president of original content Mark Stern. “Using the original format as inspiration, showrunners/writers Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke – along with a superlative team of writers, cast, and production – have created an amazing, compelling series in its own right," said We can't wait to watch Aidan, Josh and Sally continue their struggle to be human in the second season!”

Being Human stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington and Mark Pellegrino as three supernatural roommates – vampire Aidan (Witwer), ghost Sally (Rath) and werewolf Josh (Huntington) – who share their secrets and a Boston brownstone. It is based on the praised British series, Being Human, created by Toby Whithouse and produced by Touchpaper Television, part of Zodiak Media Group. Carver, Fricke and Whithouse are executive producing with Michael Prupas and Rob Pursey. Being Human marks the first scripted hit for Zodiak USA, which is also behind ABC's new unscripted series Secret Millionaire.

I have to say I really like this show, especially the Josh and the blonde nurse storyline. Josh really delivers on how alienated they feel being different. I like Aidan but man I hate all the sloppy vampire blood drinking/biting/sex stuff. I try to rationalize it by thinking of them still as primal creatures. I even like the American Annie now. They have really developed her nicely but I still miss the tea cups.

I'm glad it is coming back for a second season.

I honestly feel they delt with the vampire boy story better than the UK version did. I was always waiting on that coming back to bite him in the arse but here they actually did it. I really enjoyed what they done with it and have to say well done to them for doing something better than the UK version.

I wasn't too worried. Like the article said, it pulled in a large female audience, which is always a coveted group to have when you're looking to get advertisers.

Question: Would the vampire boy have physically stayed a little kid forever or would he grow up to puberty and then stop aging? I have seen in books and other shows that in some cases vampires age.

It was a really good and powerful episode. Lots to think about, which is another reason I like this show because it tackles issues you normally don't see addressed with supernatural creatures.

Finally saw this weeks eppy. Very good.

As to the show being renewed...whew! Syfy must love the fact 53% of the audience is female. Yea...that makes it a primetime soap, technically. A blood soaked one with balls. Anyhoo,......uh, yea, I hope the rest of the season or season 2 rises a bit in viewers. This 1.3 or 1.4 million viewers it's settled at...ugh. Thankfully it's cheap to produce and is the most skewed(?) show in SYFY history (cause of 53% viewers are women)

Great news that the show got tapped for a second season

Never seen the UK version and will probably wait until it's streaming

But is there a UK version of Marcus? Cause the guy in the US version does his job perfectly, because I hate him lol, he seems more evil than bishop!!

Bishop should have thrown Marcus in the cage with Josh after the Dutch suggested bishop sacrifice some of his people

The UK version doesn't need a Marcus. We have Herick, who is better than all other villians ever.
