Workout: Crossfit (40 min?) I wasn’t really paying attention to time. <— loser

Today I thought I would tell you all about the new show I’m watching that I love –  Being Human.

This one is on the Syfy network and is an American remake of the British show of the same name. I have friends that like the British version and have recommended it to me, but I decided to watch the American one since it just premiered and I don’t have to watch four seasons to catch up.

Alright. This is the plot. And I’m serious when I tell you this.

You can’t make this stuff up.

It’s about a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost…who are roommates.

And no. It’s not a comedy.

Although it does have some humor, it’s mainly a drama.

The show follows each of the characters and how they deal with what they are, how they became monsters, and how they deal with being friends with one another. (If you know folklore (is it folklore?), vampires and werewolves are enemies.)

The ghost struggles with finding out who killed her, the werewolf struggles with hating what he is, and the vampire struggles with trying to lead a “normal” life (i.e. not kill anyone).

The show has great character actors too, like Mark Pellegrino.

That dude is in everything – Jacob in Lost, the devil in Supernatural, Rita’s ex-husband on Dexter. Apparently he was also in The Number 23. (Don’t watch that movie though, trust me.)

Being Human is joining my Monday night line-up along with House and Chuck. And last night, the hubs decided to watch Being Human first out of the three. (We usually always pick Chuck.)

So try it out if you have the SyFy channel or catch an episode online HERE.

I’ve only seen 3 or 4 episodes, so I can’t declare it a favorite yet. But I’m about 2 episodes away from being nerdy enough to wear this shirt in public.

Has anyone else seen this show yet? What do you think? If you watch it for the first time soon, let me know what you thought!

    The plot does sound crazy. I’m surprised Dan hasn’t recorded it as he loves all things SyFy and Vampire related. I can’t believe you picked it over Chuck though *gasp* (ok, so I pick HIMYM over Chuck every week – don’t judge me).

    How was Crossfit?

    • I really think you’d like the show too. But I’m sure Dan and I will have to hound you Supernatural style for a couple years first. hee
      Crossfit was really good! I’m gonna do a post on it tomorrow. 🙂

    I watched all the shows on the On Demand channel yesterday when I was home sick with this miserable cold. It’s an ok show, but I’m hooked now. The characters are a bit emo for my liking, but there has been some interesting plot twists. I’m not going to say it’s one of my favorite shows. BSG by far outshines this show, imo.

    • Oh, BSG was definitely better. But I don’t know that those two shows are comparable except for being on the same network. Me and Fabian are really liking it so far, so hopefully it doesn’t start jumping any sharks. 🙂
