Quick Note: Being Human on SyFy premiered last night! I, (EC) watched part of it this morning. So far, so good. WC and I will have a full review for ou VERY SOON! Tomorrow, hopefully. Unfortunately, WordPress isn’t playing very nicely, so keep your fingers crossed!
The Syfy channel is launching it’s own version of the awesome BBC show Being Human, and we’re nervous. Firstly the Brit version of this show is perfect, how can the US improve it? They can’t. We Americans have messed up Top Gear, American Idol and Kitchen Nightmares. EC: That American Top Gear is just ridiculous. Not ridiculous in a good way! I haven’t seen the British version of the Office, but I hear it’s better too. EC: Wait…I love the American Office. Well I heart John Kranski. Why do we have to steal British shows? Are they going to do a remake of Monarch of the Glen set in San Diego? Instead of a highland Laird, Archie would be a landlord of a large apartment building where hijinks would ensue. He’d be the Mr. Ferley of the 2000’s. See, bad. EC: Supposedly, Entertainment Weekly thinks that it’s great. Also, 13 episodes instead of 6. They are expanding the story, which will be the same as the British version. Questions and more questions! So, what will we see from Syfy? Who knows, but I know what we won’t see:
US Annie (Sally) needs:
Annie’s comfy gray sweaters. Here in the US, we’re all about the boobs. So ghost Annie (Sally) will be in cami’s and halters. Wait, just checked photographic evidence! Nope…American girl ghost ‘Sally’ has the sweater! The inmportant thing to look out for is if she gives those come hiter looks to Mitc…Aidan or a little sister teasing to Gero…Josh. We need to get these names straight.
Annie constantly making tea. Tea isn’t really our pasttime beverage. So Annie will just keep opening cans of Coors Light. Or Starbucks Coffee. We Americans love coffee and product placement in out television programs.
US Mitchell (Aidan) will not be:
We’ll miss the dark curls. And the accent. Mitchell is a good mix of light in dark. You would really like to do shots with him at the pub and maybe a pint or two, but when it’s time to go home…it might be a bit nerve wracking walking down a dark alley home. American Mitchell, I mean Aidan, seems creepy. It remains to be seen if he can bring the humour and charm. Honestly, we love our Mitchell slightly evil, but he needs to have the heart and slight romantic vibe with Annie. Fun note: American Mitchell was Doomsday on Smallville. Why do I (EC) know this? Tom Welling (Superman) is adorable and I might be a really cute nerd who likes that show.
What do you think of a US version of Being Human? Let us know!
