Are you partial to the bloody brawn of Spartacus: Vengeance's Liam McIntyre? Or do you prefer Shameless star Emmy Rossum and her, um, shamelessly clothes-free sex scenes? Speaking of....
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 ...
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 ...
Mark Pellegrino will give Castle and Beckett trouble... from half a century in the past!
Best known for his powerful and scary mythical characters, Mark Pellegrino is just plain scary as an escaped murderer on this week's Breakout Kings (Sunday, 10/9c, A&E). The good-natured actor filled TV Guide Magazine in on his latest role and some of his favorite non-humans (Lost's Jacob, Supernatural's Lucifer and Being Human's Bishop) as well as peek at his new Fox pilot
TV Guide Magazine: So who is Virgil Downing, the latest escaped con that the Breakout Kings have to haul back to prison?

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...
Syfy's supernatural roommates will be extending their lease.
The cable channel announced Thursday that it ordered a second season of Being Human, a U.S. remake of a British drama. It centers on three Bostonians who share a brownstone and their supernatural secrets — Aidan (Sam Witwer) is a vampire, Josh (Sam Huntington) a werewolf, and Annie (Meaghan Rath) a ghost. The trio try to assimilate and lead normal lives.

Question: After watching the last 10 minutes of last week's Bones play out, I was left disappointed and heavy by what happened (which was a big bummer after watching the wonderful Friday Night Lights finale beforehand)...
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."

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...
