Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Vincent Leclerc, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Andreas Apergis, Angela Galuppo Writer: Casey Fisher, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleszcyznski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 3, 2014 You’d think with vampires, werewolves and ghosts already essential features of BEING HUMAN, adding BUTTERFLY EFFECT time travel (actually name-checked here by the characters) might be a bit much, but “Rewind, Rewind” makes it work in a way that is holds our attention. What’s interesting is not how […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “You’re the One That I Haunt”

Mark Pelligrino in BEING HUMAN - Season 1 - "You're the One That I Haunt" | ©2011 Syfy/Phillipe Boss

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta Writer: Nancy Won Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 4, 2011 There are plenty of dramatic events in the BEING HUMAN episode “You’re the One That I Haunt,” but they’ll probably play better for those who haven’t seen the original, because this hews very closely to the template in two of the plot threads, while being rather brief with the third. As the episode opens, ghost Sally (Meagan Rath) is much the worse for wear after a mostly-failed exorcism attempt […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “Going Dutch”

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Vincent Leclerc, Angela Galuppo, Terry Kinney Writer: Chris Dingess Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 28, 2011 In BEING HUMAN’s episode “Going Dutch,” our three leads’ stories all take big jumps forward. For werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington), it’s panic time when girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager) tells him she’s pregnant – not because he doesn’t want commitment, but because he’s afraid he’s passing along his wolf genes (which he still hasn’t told Nora about). Ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) has an unpleasant […]Read On »

BEING HUMAN started life as a BBC series, created by Toby Whithouse, about three Londoners sharing a flat, who just happen to be, respectively, a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost.

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Sarah Allen, Terry Kinney, Vlasta Vrana Writers: Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke Director: Paolo Barzman Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 21, 2011 In “Dog Eat Dog,” the U.S. BEING HUMAN again enters new territory and is again the better for it. Show runners Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke have crafted an episode with good suspense, surprises and no dead spots. As a bonus, director Paolo Barzman is a veteran of HIGHLANDER: THE SERIES, which means he’s an old, deft hand at the 1940s flashbacks that show a very […]Read On »
