Being Human

Post  Rus on 2011-01-25, 09:52

Anyone watching the Americanized version that started a couple weeks ago? I've checked it out and it seems ok. I only saw a couple of the original so I'm not sure how it compares.

I think the casting is surprizingly good. That's what has killed the last few Britain to America programs I've seen. So I'm watching this one, when I get a chance. Liked the last one where the vampire guy has some emotional stuff to get thru. Thought he was good at protraying that without being overboard.

Haven't caught up to this one yet but I continue to try. It looks interesting...

No argument there. Their casting was brilliant....especially for Wolf Boy.
In the American version, I think the ghost girl is the weak link.

Yeah, I started watching this season when I saw that Dichen Lachen was cast. It's pretty good....the women are mostly cry- babies about their condition, except Dichen..... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

There's one thing that you can say about this show....there isn't a shred of hopefulness or optimism in any of the plots or characters. I guess that the pretty Dr. that was the werewolf's girlfriend is being dropped from the cast, with one episode to go. That sort of bums me out, but I don't know how else to interpret it, after she gets killed, becomes a ghost, and walks through 'the door', which I assume means that she is never coming back as a ghost, unlike Sally who is 'stuck' here for some reason. I don't understand the metaphysical underpinnings of their various 'existences' but anyway.... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Good grief ! A 3 way cliffhanger for the season finale. All 3 major characters are in peril for one reason or another, each reason being completely different and supernatural except for the gun shot..... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A pretty good season premire. Now that Sally is reanimated she'll get to wear some better clothes . Going two season with the same old gray sweater/tank top and pants was getting boring but ghosts don't have many wardrobe choices.... roflmao

She was on Craig Ferguson recently and was hardly recognizable in her stylish clothes and make-up.

It must get boring for her having to wear the same clothing every episode as well. In theory all ghosts/spirits would be completely naked. But that would not work very well on TV. :P

I wouldn't think that this should affect the American version since the actors, stories, production, etc. are completely different.....I hope it won't. scratch

So Sally's corporeal body is gradually decomposing and she becomes a ghost again in a rather convoluted way but at least she has more 'stylish' clothes than her last time as a ghost. roflmao

Meaghan Rath is obviously Indian, quite rare for a female lead in any show, and being Canadian she must be a member of an Eastern Canadian tribe but I can't find any info on which one.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

One episode to go this season...


But this implies that she may be of actual Indian descent so wouldn't be a tribal member at all:

Rath is Austrian from her father's side and Indian from her mother's side, and has a younger brother named Jesse who is also an actor.

It's been a good season. Looks like they are almost back to normal except for a new young vamp to take care of and teach who has been dead/asleep for the last two episodes. scratch

With one ep to go don't bet on it being "back to normal". They usually have a cliff hanger. affraid
