HOW DARE THEY???
Just leave the show alone! Buy the licence to air it on your channel, but please, don't do a dumb-down version with just lots of pretty faces! I mean, hey, Being human is just about to start its second series, it doesn't need any remake... at least not yet!
And IMO they don't even get the concept of the show.
"It turned out great, as we can now do an American version," Syfy president Dave Howe told The Hollywood Reporter. "We've always been keen on vampires and werewolves, and we loved the originality of Being Human, the fact that the fantastical creatures in it are very young, accessible and charming."
Uh, hello? It's not a show about some nice and pretty vampires or werewolves, and certainly not a comedy or such... just get yourself some brain cells and throw that stupid idea in the bin, will you? And if you loved its orginality, so, why you just don't get original yourself?
I really, really hope they'll go belly-up with that! *grrr*
