SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

"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.

NBC's The Cape Premieres Tomorrow

By Karen Moul

The CapeNBC is pulling out all the stops for its new series, The Cape, a crime drama with a comic book sensibility. Curious viewers have seen the promos and explored the show's website, which includes an online graphic novel and official message board. The marketing blitz reached a high point just before Christmas, when the show's creator and executive producer, Thomas Wheeler, made time for a Q&A session with digital journalists.

The show stars David Lyons (ER) as Vince Faraday, a good cop framed for crimes he did not commit. Presumed dead in an explosion, Faraday teams up with a gang of carnival workers who help him assume the persona of The Cape - his son's favorite comic book hero. Taking the law into his own hands, Faraday fights to defeat the criminal forces of Palm City and win back his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, Life on Mars) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, Flash Forward).
