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:

 

Does the US measure up?

 

 

 
 
 

Cozy and classy: Annie's magic sweater

 

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.

Uh oh, I miss the mismatched china teacups

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 me will suck, but not as well.

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.  

 

Already missing the accent and the curls, but...I'll give you a chance Doomsday.

 

 US George (JOSH) isn’t:

 
 

By 'George', I think he's got it!

 

 British George is the man. Seriously, it might be a personal preference, but I like my George slightly dorky and whiny. His disfunctional BFF’s with Annie makes my day. They get cranky at each other about messes, but the two of them come together when they need help. For this reason, American ‘George’ needs to bring it. He needs to bring the whiny dorky and mix it with the reluctant sweetness, that saves him from the throttling you want to give him for being annoying. Plus the American version might be TOO attractive. The British George is cute, but American TV always has to bring the ‘sex’ appeal. There really is no need. Umm…observe the picture below…wait a minute…umm…nevermind. No sex appeal here. It looks like a mugshot. That was a bit unfair of the photographer!

 
 

A Geor...I mean JOSH mug shot.

Let’s all hope that the American version will have all the supernatural bonding, cool stories, funny moments and scares as the original. But being this is filmed in the U.S.A, it might be Baywatch with vamps. Luckily, the Being Human vampires don’t burn up or sparkle. Ha! Surfing vampires. This amuses me.

The Birthday Boy

Happy

Birthday,

Mr.

Somerhalder!

Posted by EC Stacey

So today is you birthday…welcome to your 30’s…wait…you’re already there. This isn’t one of those milestone birthdays or anything, but we still hope you party hard and tweet about positive environmental changes that we all can do. You know…turn off a light when exiting a room, give a hoot, don’t pollute or only you can prevent forest fires. All those types of things. In honor of your birthday, we give this very brief semi-fangirl ode to you.

While you were in Maryland did you enjoy some Old Bay on your crabs?

The first time, I saw you was in the show Young Americans. Actually, it was when you were filming in my hometown in Maryland. You all really shook things up in my small town. I come back home from college for summer vacation and I have a bizarre traffic circle on the main street. Do you even know how much that thing confused my grandmother? I honestly thought the poor woman was going to get in an…wait…lost track there, sorry. Yes, you all were loitering about. New attractive males hanging around the fake Friendly’s and crowding the locals out of the ONE coffee shop. (Not that I minded that one bit.) You said something to me once, which you would definitely not remember. I was hoping you would come back to town, but you got cancelled. It was a sad day for me…umm…the town.

SWD: Oh that pic, I thought it was an American Eagle ad! That’s a lot of chino… and not much hair product.

Here you are in Smallville. I was surprised to see you again, but then figured out you probably had a contract with the WB. I was sure they were going to cast you on Felicity. Anyway, I also thought it was eerie how much you looked like Superman…

You and Tom Welling should play brothers...seriously

See twins! Like WC Stacey and I...except we don't look alike

SWD: I haven’t watched Smallville in forever. Damon Ian was on it? * note to self, I should have kept watching.* I had a thing for Lex Luther (Michael Rosenbaum, who was also in one of my favorite movies Sorority Boys, hey don’t judge) . Oh shock, Lex, another Bad boy.

EC:Then came The Rules of Attraction. Hmm… Well… that was a WHOLE new side to the WB actors and actresses. Whoa…


SWD: I think I saw part of this movie. I remember a girl in a cute jacket with a funky haircut….didn’t she…. Well, I just remember her jacket.

EC: I think you are thinking of something different. Maybe the Pulse movie he was in with Veronica Mars? This was a very ‘dirty’ show on HBO. THe guy that’s on Parks and Recreations was in it too. Now that is an actor playing two COMPLETELY different roles! Wowza!

Look there you are! Not in the jumping on the bed with Dawson scene...

The reason I actually watched the movie (before I decided to be Team Pacey)…

SWD: Hee hee hee, Dawson lov-ah!

Oh Dawson, you got kind of creepy when you left The Creek

Then there was Tell Me You Love Me. I didn’t add any pictures of that, because the were explicit. Honestly, our readers would get in trouble opening that up at work and could you imagine if children walked into the room! That’s all types of wrong, mister…Let’s skip to LOST.

My favorite character on Lost until...

I really enjoyed your character on LOST. Boone was such a great sidekick to Locke, but then they killed you off. I stopped watching for awhile until a friend convinced me to start watching for…

Not you too! Darn you, Lost Showrunners!


Charlie. Then good-bye Charlie. Okay the ending when… fine, I won’t mention it. Will people just watch the ending, so I can talk about it! It’s been MONTHS! Of course, I’m still not allowed to talk about The Sopranos ending either.

SWD: C’mon Stace, you already spoiled the ending of 6 Feet Under on letterstotwilight. What happens on LOST. I’ve never seen it.

We adore Damon

Finally, you came back to us in Vampire Diaries. You had our appreciation when your were creating carnage in Season One and bringing the snark this season. We might tease your show, but we love it and the actors involved. Aren’t you happy to know that this includes you?

Happy Birthday, Ian! Have a wonderful time tonight. Think of us when your drinking your microbrew and hanging with your posse. We’ll be the girls sitting at home with our cups of tea watching Modern Family.

Fondly,

EC Stacey and WC Stacey (SWD)
