Not your conventional roommates.

The North American adaptation of Being Human returns to Space in Canada and Syfy in the United States tomorrow night for its second season. We have two short clips from the premiere for you below, which the latter channel released last week. Readers in Canada can see a Space preview on spacecast.com.

Being Human centers on three paranormal roommates—a vampire, werewolf and ghost—who are trying to live normal lives. It was adapted from a BBC series with the same name, four season of which have been produced.

The North American adaptation premiered on Syfy early last year and averaged 1.8 million viewers over the season. At the time those numbers made it Syfy’s most successful scripted series launched over the last six years in its winter season. The show was also a hit on Space.

SyFy’s Being Human Preview

The latest television effort to attempt to cross the pond is coming your way soon. SyFy's Being Human hopes to take the popular British title of the same name, and make it work for American audiences. For my money, this might turn out to be one of the better shots at "Americanizing" a show in quite some time, largely because after a while the original trailed off for me a bit. That may mean nothing in the true scheme of things, but I'm hopeful that another look at the show may prove even better.

For those unfamiliar, the show revolves around three, more or less normal, twenty-somethings trying to make their way through life... well, except that only one of them is more or less alive. It's the same old story. A vampire, a ghost, and a werewolf figuring out how to get by in this crazy, mixed-up world.

SyFy's take on "Being Human" includes a lesbian character

With the New Year upon us, prepare to add a new Lgbt character to your radar when Syfy's Being Human remake premieres on Jan. 17.

The remake of the popular U.K. series about three twentysomethings — a vampire, werewolf and ghost who share living quarters — features a lesbian supporting character: Emily, the sister of the show's resident moon howler.

Played by Alison Louder, viewers meet Emily in Episode 2 of the new Monday night scripted drama that stars Sam Witwer (Smallville) as Aidan the vampire, Sam Huntington (Superman Returns) as Josh the werewolf and relative newcomer Meaghan Rath (Prom Wars) as Sally the ghost.

Alison Louder

For fans of the supernatural, the series grabs you immediately as Josh transforms into a werewolf. It's not the campy greatness of HBO's True Blood, but it's fun just the same. Judging from the first three episodes, we know that Aidan is a 200-year-old vampire who,

[DVD Review] Prom Wars

If American movies have taught us anything (this is Canadian, but still), it’s that there is no single more important event in anyone’s life or even in recorded history than the prom. Curing cancer? Killing Hitler? When was the last time you saw a character pursue any of these goals with the manic, all-consuming fervor with which well-dressed teenagers organize their prom? Life, however, teaches a different lesson. In truth, the prom is over in a couple of hours, plenty of people don’t even go, and it infrequently culminates in any sort of life lesson or coming of age experience, with most people agreeing afterward that the time and money might have been better spent elsewhere. As a result, things like Prom Wars are a bit hard to take. There probably are people who take the prom this seriously in reality, but those people aren’t really any easier to take,

Is Alia Shawkat A Runaway?

Latino Review is reporting that Alia Shawkat – better known as the acerbic teenager, Maeby, on the godlike and gone-too-soon sitcom, Arrested Development – has joined the cast of the Kristen Stewart-starring Joan Jett biopic, The Runaways.According to them, Shawkat will play Robin, a fictional character who may or may not be an amalgam of several of the teen girl group’s bass players (they went through them like Spinal Tap goes through drummers), including Micki Steele, Peggy Foster, Jackie Fox, Flea, Mike Mills and Jim Tavare.If the rumour is true, then it represents a decided upturn in fortunes for Shawkat, who’s been possibly the only Arrested Development alum to have fared less than well since the show ended in 2006.While the likes of Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Michael Cera have been carving out movie careers, she’s cropped up in the likes of Prom Wars and Bart Got A Room.
