Being Human's Supernatural Roomies Return

Being Human

Syfy's addictive remake of the British hit Being Human returns for Season 2 tonight and things have gotten even trickier for the paranormal roomies now that big bad Bishop has been beheaded. "It gets dark fast," says Sam Witwer, whose 200-hundred-year-old vampire, Aidan, finds himself struggling to keep Boston's bloodsucking community under control without a leader, along with some of his own uglier instincts. "He's completely ...

Monday TV in Review: Alcatraz, Lost Girl, Being Human and More

Anna Silk

Something less than a great escape, Fox's intriguing but formulaic Alcatraz (8/7c), from members of Lost's brain trust, proves a fairly tough "Rock" to crack. Basically a procedural with a 4400-style fantasy gimmick, this twists the America's Most Wanted concept by having its parade ...

Matt's TV Week in Review

Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak

There will come a time when we tell future generations about the good old days when serialized soaps blanketed the daytime TV landscape — the way prime time once was overrun with Westerns, variety shows and big-ticket miniseries, among other fondly remembered, now-faded formats. The latest death knell, not unexpected but still a shock when it sounded, came late this week when ABC confirmed that the venerable, iconic All My Children and the similarly long-running One Life to Live had been taken off life support. Word of their demise had circulated for some time — AMC takes its final bow in September, One Life to Life will soldier on until January — but it's still a jolt to the system when confronted with the unmistakable signs than an era is ending. Changing viewing habits and economics have conspired against scripted daytime dramas in favor of cheaper-to-produce talk/lifestyle shows. Just as the remnants of variety TV can be found in the results shows of reality competitions American Idol and Dancing With the Stars, soap intrigues have been upstaged by celeb-reality high jinks: the plastic casts of Bravo's various Real Housewives shows, the debauched antics of Jersey Shore, which is being spun off while the daily soaps dwindle to a mere few... read more

Syfy's Being Human Remake Won't Be Watered Down

Being Human

Syfy's Being Human remake will not water down the story lines that originated in the British series just because it's on American cable TV, the executive producers say.

When adapting the show for Syfy, executive producer Jeremy Carver wanted to stay true to the darkness in the original. "It was creating a world and situations where we didn't shy from the morally ambiguous choices that our characters have to come across day to day."

Syfy sets premiere dates for Being Human, other series

"What we loved about the original series is that... read more

Sam Witwer: The New Vampire in Town

Sam Witwer

As a proud sci-fi geek, you'd think that Sam Witwer (Smallville, Battlestar Galactica) would jump at the chance to play Aidan, a sexy 257-year-old bloodsucker in Syfy's reworking of Being Human, the BBC hit about three supernatural roomies. As it turns out, not so much... read more
