Being Human pilot review

One of us really wasn’t expecting to like this. First of all, it’s on that SyFy network that we almost never watch (no offense to anyone who does). Second, it’s YET ANOTHER remake of a British show, and we already have enough of those this season. Third, it’s about a werewolf, a ghost, and a vampire who live together and try to act human. Sounds like a lame, cheesy, geeky snore, right?

Well, hop on over to hulu and watch “There Goes the Neighborhood Part 1” and be surprised. We can’t wait for the next episode. It’s a fast-moving, entertaining show, so far. It made us care pretty quickly, already has some villains lined up, isn’t afraid to show a little blood, and has gotten into the plot fairly quickly for a 40-minute pilot. It even left us feeling the suspense. Maybe we should give all of the credit to the source material, but this is much better than we thought it would be, which is good enough for a pilot.

Pilot Grade: B

And out of the three new shows that aired Monday night, this is the one to which we will return next week. If we hear, via word of mouth, that Skins gets better, we will check that out again too. But that won’t be for a few weeks, surely. We’re pretty much done with Harry’s Law.


  1. Pretty good show. Missed the BBC version so this was new to me. Great to see "Dexter" alumnus Mark Pellegrino back in a villian role as the evil vamp "Bishop". This one may replace "True Blood" as my favorite television horror show if they can keep the tension high. "True Blood" gets one more chance to bring it back to the first season's potential, imo.

  2. One of us hated Mark's performance as Jacob on LOST. It was flat and boring, so he still has to win us over. We actually liked ssn 2 of True Blood, but ssn 3 was ghastly. You're right though, ssn 1 was best. We are glad we are not the only ones checking out Being Human. Geek fare is slim lately on TV. Shame.
