    As much as I’ve liked Sam Huntington in other stuff, seeing these pics makes the fact that a remake is coming all too real. It was hard enough getting over the cast changes between the original Being Hunan pilot and the UK series (at least they kept Russel Tovey) that I don’t know how I’ll do with the US cast.

    • At first, I shared similar concerns but I like the look of this remake. It’s all about the performances at this point.

    I understand remaking a show if it came out say 10-30 years ago. But this is ridiculous! Being Human was AWESOME on BBC America, I’m kind of peeved that Syfy is doing a remake of it so soon.

    • Well since the original series is British, chances are a lot of people don’t know about it in the US. It’s similar to NBC adapting The Office from the original UK series.

      Even though I love the original British series, I am curious about this new version.

      • Very true. Most people, having basic cable channels, don’t get BBC, else have no idea what channel it is. I’ve loved various BBC series aired on PBS, but that doesn’t mean I had the ability to know of shows such as Being Human. The British shows I’ve seen on PBS are Mr. Bean and Keeping Up Appearances, nothing drama-related. I would never have known about this show if not for syfy. And, I must say, the show is rather excellent. I have no interest in comparing it to the original version, especially because they, themselves, have said that their intentions were to have some similarities, but to let it be its own show. I highly suggest giving the syfy version a chance. It’s thrilling.

      • It isn’t really a “remake,” as many of you are saying, it is an alternate version. So, in reply to the above attempt at delivering a coherent opinion, the syfy characters are not meant to be replicates of the BBC characters. Perhaps you should watch the show with the notion that it is only similar to an extent, but is really of its own existence. Also, I feel those who are turned off by the syfy version should probably allow for the show to get beyond its six aired episodes before setting their opinions in stone.
