It ain’t easy being a loner vampire, as Aidan (Sam Witwer) found out on the Syfy incarnation of the BBC series of BEING HUMAN. And when your roommates are a ghost named Sally (Meaghan Rath) and a werewolf named Josh (Sam Huntington) – things can get downright bizarre. As the Syfy series wound down Season 1 earlier this year, Aidan found his loner status threatened when he was suddenly now the leaders of a group of junkie vampires after his mentor and later antagonist Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) was killed. Recently ASSIGNMENT X spoke to actor Sam Witwer to get the […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Me Killing You” – Season Finale

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 »

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 »

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 »
