"Being Human" (US) is totally entertaining
1 March 2011 | by billygardener19See all my reviews

I've kept right up with all of the episodes, and the characters have grown nicely. Anyone who can be critical after just one or two episodes is not a critic. I decided to watch the British version after I began watching this one, and, frankly, I decided not to watch it again. I'm very satisfied with the characters in the U.S., and the acting is excellent, as far as I'm concerned, with just the right amount of humor, which is delivered well, and the expected (and sometimes not) horror action that goes with it. The show is unique, as far as I am concerned, and I put it in a class with "Supernatural", which is at the top of my list for good entertainment and acting. People need to decide for themselves rather than have someone promote another version that they have become over-familiar with. It becomes like "the movie just can't compare to the book". I love British TV, but, in this instance, it can't compare to this version, and I'll stay a dedicated fan for what I hope is a long run. Thanks, SYFY!
