"Being Human" Early Preview & Pilot Review

Being HumanThe wait is finally over. Tonight SyFy will premiere their new series, Being Human, a "reimagining" of the BBC series of the same name. Some fans of the original series aren't sure if they should tune in tonight, but they should. The new series stands on its own, even with the same overall story - a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost live together as roommates. After that, is anyone's guess. According to those involved in the series, plots may change and even if situations are the same, characters may react in different ways. The second season may not resemble that of the original series at all. Regardless, the series so far is brilliant. After watching the pilot tonight you will be thirsting for more.

Meet Aidan (Sam Witwer; Battlestar Galactica; Smallville), a tortured vampire who wants to control his addiction. He doesn't always succeed, and his "mentor" Bishop isn't helping things, always trying to pull him back into his seedy underworld. Aidan, however, would rather walk his own path, even if it is not easy.

Josh (Sam Huntington; Supernan Returns; Fanboys) is not a typical werewolf. He's shy and also nervous around the ladies. Not the alpha male that Hollywood has made us use to. Though that doesn't mean we don't get to enjoy him running through the woods naked.

Sally (Meaghan Rath; Prom Wars, 18 to Life) is the free-spirit. Even though she's been living a lonely existence for six months, considering no one but Aidan and Josh can see or talk to her, she often is the most cheerful of the bunch, even as she struggles with not being able to leave the house.

The three live together, trying to have some normalcy, and at the same time retain their humanity.

"Fairly Legal" Creator Michael Sardo Talks About USA Network's New Series

Fairly LegalFairly Legal, USA Network's new original series, will be premiering next Thursday, following the return of Royal Pains. The new series stars Sarah Shahi (Life; The L Word) as Kate Reed, a top litigator, who frustrated by injustice, decides to become an "anti-lawyer," as a mediator. She does whatever to takes to resolve conflicts before the cases go to trial. The series also stars Michael Trucoo (Battlestar Galactica; Castle) as Justin Patrick, Virginia Williams (Revenge of the Bridesmaids; How I Met Your Mother) as Lauren Reed, and Baron Vaughn (The Other Guys; Law & Order) as Leonardo Prince.

Michael Sardo, who has previously written for series such as The Tracey Ullman Show, Picket Fences, and Wings, and is the creator and executive producer of the show, sat down to talk to the digital media about the new series.

When coming up with the idea for the series, Sardo tends to approach his television pilots from a "feature writer's perspective in the sense of letting them find their own way." Part of his ideas came from having friends who were getting divorced. "All of them would start off very amicable, "You know we're just going to divide up the stuff; there's really no problem here." Then somehow or another in the process, once they got lawyers, it was war. Then I saw a couple friends go through divorces with a mediator, and they just talked it out and found a solution, little bumps along the road, but it was fine. I got interested in what was this thing, this mediation thing."

"Being Human" Holds its Own

Being HumanSyfy has carried reimagined series before, take Battlestar Galactica for example. However, Syfy's newest series, Being Human, is different in that the original series is currently still on television in its third season on the BBC. Many people have been hesitant on whether or not to tune in to Syfy's version, especially fans of the original. After watching the first three episodes and talking to some of those involved in the show, however, I think everyone should give it a shot. Syfy's version can definitely hold its own.

It's true that the general story line is the same - a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost become roommates, and because of the success of franchises like Twilight and True Blood, that may be enough to pull a certain demographic in. Some of the rules and myths of supernatural creatures are of course the same, but it is almost unavoidable that there would be an overlap with all of the other shows out there. However, this show is nothing like the other current popular shows with similar themes.

All three characters long for normality and consider themselved cursed. As you would expect, Aidan, the vampire (Sam Witwer; Battlestar Galactica, Smallville), tries (and at times fails) not to kill humans, as does Josh (Superman Returns, Fanboys), the werewolf played by Sam Huntington, who turns once a month. Meanwhile Sally, the ghost (Meaghan Rath; Prom Wars, 18 to Life) who haunts the friends' new apartment, learns what it means to be ethereal and struggles to live without being able to interact with others, or even to leave the apartment.


Having only seen a couple episodes of the original, I cannot say how similar certain storylines are, but from what I have seen, regardless, they are very enjoyable, even if some were familiar. The producers and actors of the show have stated in various interviews that even if certain situations are the same, they may be handled completely different on the new series. And it's great that Syfy also gets thirteen episodes compared to BBC's six to develop the story during the first season.

I found the stories compelling and the characters believable in their struggles. The scripts were well written and I was really surprised when each episode was over because it moved so quickly and was quite eager to start the next.
