SyFy recently announced that they will be renewing Being Human for a second season! The series, which is a remake of the BBC show of the same name, drew an impressive 2.14 million viewers in its second episode and has an overall average of 1.8 million viewers per episode – which makes it a huge winner for SyFy.
Now we get to continue to watch the weekly adventures of Aiden, Josh and Sally! Who, if you are new to the show, are a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost. The show is about these three sharing a house together and try to live a normal life despite being less than average. It shows how difficult it is being human, and gives viewers a new insight into the very different hardships each “monster” faces.
I am so ridiculously happy that this show is getting a second season! Fans of the original may hate me for this, but I couldn’t stand the UK’s Being Human. I gave it a shot, I really did, but it was just too cheesy to stomach and I found the actors incredibly annoying. The SyFy version though, I love it! I think the actors do a fantastic job portraying their very unique characters and the battles they all go through. The entire show kicks ass – the actors and their roles, the storylines and themes that blend into one another, the deeper psychological aspects of each being, even the humor is dead on and always comes at just the right moment. Goodness, I’ve turned into a SyFy Being Human fangirl!
New episodes of SyFy’s Being Human are currently airing on Monday nights on the SyFy channel at 9 pm EST.
