Question: I know you like the BBC version of Being Human, as do I. So I am curious if you have seen any previews of Syfy's version of Being Human. Are we looking at an Office-like success or a Coupling-like failure? I will take a peek. However, I am so in love with the original version, I am not sure if I can accept this version. — Pam

9:30/8:30c Showtime
Brimming with wit and cleverness, and blessed with a stellar cast, this new cable sitcom tells the story of British-TV producers Sean and Beverly Lincoln (the exquisitely matched Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig), whose award-winning show is bought by American network honcho Merc Lapidus (the engagingly slick John Pankow). Merc brings the Brits to L.A. with a "stronger than stone" promise of free rein and no interference. Well, you know what they say about promises, and soon the Lincolns need to decide if they can get with the program. — Ray Stackhouse

The Cape Debuts as NBC's New Hero

The Cape

With Batman locked up by Warner Bros.' feature-film department, NBC's The Cape may be the closest thing we'll get to a Dark Knight TV series in the foreseeable future. And that's just fine by creator Tom Wheeler, who has been a major comic-book geek (mostly Marvel) since he was 5. "There's a lot of inspiration," says Wheeler, who has also woven in elements of his other obsession: magic. "I've always been a big fan of Harry Houdini, escapism and illusion."

Question: I was just watching Human Target, and as someone who lives in San Francisco, I was wondering how often shows are actually shot on location and what are the factor conditions. I get a San Francisco vibe from Human Target, which I didn't get from Monk. Both Dexter and Burn Notice take place in Miami, but I usually get more of a Los Angeles vibe from Dexter. Many shows have episodes that take place at universities and I swear I am always looking at the UCLA campus.
