Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Terry Kinney Writers: Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke Director: Adam Kane Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 11, 2011 BEING HUMAN ends its first season on a note of suitable completion, if not genius. It flips around who gets to be the hero of the piece from its British forerunner to somewhat tamer effect, but still generates enough good will for the main characters to keep us invested in their challenges, both separate and shared. After the previous episode culminated in vampire leader Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) staking […]Read On »

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

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 »

Exclusive Interview: BEING HUMAN showrunners Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke talk about vamps, werewolves and ghosts

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. Syfy Channel has now made a Boston-set version of the show, with Sam Witwer as vampire Aidan, Sam Huntington as werewolf Josh , Meaghan Rath as ghost Sally and Mark Pellegrino as Aidan’s bloodsucking mentor/maker Bishop. While Whithouse is a producer on the new version, the executive producers/show runners are Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke, who sit together on a couch as they talk about all their characters who […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “Dog Eat Dog”

Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington in BEING HUMAN - Season 1 - "Dog Eat Dog" | ©2011 Syfy/Philippe Bosse

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 »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “I Want You Back (From the Dead)”

Sam Witwer and Mark Pellegrino in Being Human - Season 1 - "I Want You Back (From the Dead)" | ©2011 Syfy/Phillipe Bosse

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Cindy Sampson, Jason Spevack, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen Writer: Nancy Won Director: Paolo Barzman Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 14, 2011 Credit this U.S. episode of BEING HUMAN with finally giving ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) a lively and original new subplot. Allowing curiosity (and perhaps boredom) to overcome her fear, Sally finally explores the haunted hospital wing further and comes upon a message, albeit not left for her, from Nick, who she knew in life. Sally finds Nick at the beach. It turns out they both had wild […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “Children Shouldn’t Play With Undead Things”

Meaghan Rath in BEING HUMAN - Season 1 - "Children Shouldn't Play With Undead Things" | ©2011 Syfy/Phillipe Bosse

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Cindy Sampson, Jason Spevack, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen Writer: Chris Dingess Director: Jeremiah Chechik Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 7, 2011 BEING HUMAN largely returns to copying its British forebear with “Children Shouldn’t Play With Undead Things,” in which vampire Aidan’s (Sam Witwer) befriending of bullied 10-year-old neighbor Bernie (Jason Spevack) leads to unintended consequences and Josh’s (Sam Huntingdon) courtship of nurse Nina (Kristen Hager) results in very wild pre-werewolf transformation sex. The one original bit here concerns Sally (Meaghan Rath), who is not exactly delighted by what she finds […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – SEASON ONE – “I See Your True Colors … and That’s Why I Hate You”

Sam Witwer in BEING HUMAN - Season 1 - "I See Your True Colors … and That’s Why I Hate You" | ©2011 Syfy/Phillipe Bosse

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Gianpaolo Venuta, Alison Louder, Angela Galuppo, Vincent LeClerc Writers: Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke Director: Jeremy Chechik Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 28, 2011 Ah, there it is. Like Aidan’s fang poking out from under his lower lip, the U.S. version of BEING HUMAN finally finds a personality of its own with a plot thread not seen (at least in the first season) of the U.K. version, as werewolf Josh is roped into going back home to see his parents. These loving, well-educated, upper-middle-class, politically correct folks think […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Gianpaolo Venuta Writer: Nancy Won Director: Charles Biname Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 14, 2011 So far, Syfy’s BEING HUMAN is following the original BBC BEING HUMAN fairly closely. “The End of the World As We Knew It” is the U.S. episode where two of our three protagonists find out how they got the way they are – a werewolf and a ghost – while our third lead finds out what his vampire sire is planning for the world. ut another way, Josh (Sam Huntington) learns that fellow […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: BEING HUMAN takes a bite out of Sam Witwer and Mark Pellegrino

Sam Witwer and Mark Pellegrino in BEING HUMAN - Season 1 | ©2011 Syfy

On BEING HUMAN, a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost share a house and their mutual yet disparate attempts to achieve something like the title condition. The actors playing the series’ two principal vampires, Sam Witwer as roommate Aidan and Mark Pellegrino as police lieutenant (and Aidan’s sire) Bishop, likewise share a few things, like a background in cult hits. Pellegrino was the quasi-saintly Jacob (Pellegrino jokingly refers to him as “diet Jesus”) on LOST, the Earthly incarnation of Lucifer on SUPERNATURAL, Rita’s violent ex-husband on DEXTER; Witwer also appeared on DEXTER, as well as being Davis Bloome, aka Doomsday, […]Read On »
