Why didn’t you post a story on the ratings of SGU this week?

SGU got 0.928 million viewers. It is a new Stargate franchise low on Syfy.

How can Being Human be a “remake” if the BBC series isn’t over yet? I think its just more appropriate to call it an “alternate version” rather than a “remake.”

well, its obvious that whatever a dumb teenager would find entertaining (and below average iq adults) is what gets the ratings and extra seasons.

Everyone! Witness the slow de-evolution of our planet’s civilizations. Idiocracy here we come

It isn’t even an alternate version,it is the exact copy,with different actors.All the main points,ALL OF THEM are the same,so if you watch the original,nothing really important,crucial in storyline development can surprise you,cause you know it’s coming and what’s worse,EXACTLY how it’s coming…the farse goes on!!

Maybe,even probably,but for now de-evolution of the US civilisation is extremely evident!

Honestly I have never watched this show, but I do like Tru Blood…I’m sure they are nothing alike.

Don’t worry guys Stargate will live on. It took Star Trek over 10 years to get it’s first film.

Just wondering: what do they mean by “most female-skewing scripted series ever”?

No,they are not alike,True Blood is a masterpiece.Although the UK version is quite all right!

@ Jim Have you read Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse novels? I have and enjoyed them immensely. I have watched True Blood for comparison and have found that the show has gone waaaay off the reservation. True the novels are told from the 1st person viewpoint of Sookie, but there were alot of plot developments in the TV series that didn’t exist in the novels, some of which I found sadly over done. @ Lee_Machine Actually, Being Human (US) is almost a point by point rip-off of Being Human (UK). I say almost because the writers of the US version are… Read more »

I don’t buy into the whole Twilight-inspired vampire craze that has taken film and television by storm as of late. That being said however, the original UK Being Human is a FANTASTIC series.

I gave the first two episodes of the US version a shot, but it just feels… inferior. Inferior, and unnecessary.

As Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke said, they stopped watching the UK version after S1 to strike out new storylines and not be influenced by the original anymore. I’m curious where they will take it after S1.

@Slayme No I haven’t read the novels,but that’s most oftenly the case,novels being better than their tv/movie adaptations.Charlaine Harris is permanently involved with the making of the show and says she is satisfied with it,so I guess she knows what she’s talking about,since she wrote those novels.I love the show,but the reading experience is completely subjective,so I can’t say anything about which will I like better,until I read it and I will.Not yet,though,cause It so happens that I’d started with a tv show,so I don’t wanna influence my viewing of it,cause I have heard what you’re saying.I’ve heard that Bill… Read more »

Although I haven’t watched the last few episodes yet, it was a good show. I’m glad it got renewed as there are very few shows left out there that I like. Never saw the UK version.

I recommend you don’t watch the UK version,before you see the entire US season 1,if you like it,because,it really will spoile every surprise for you.Hopefully in the second season they’ll break away with their own storyline,so then you should see the UK version,cause it’s great!

@ Jim, @ Sylvia

UK version is much better. I think SyFy offered to foot the bill for a new, “original” (rolling eyes here), program in an attempt to cash in on the vampire/werewolf gravy train. How sad is that? They had a new, original series (a new take on Stargate), and they cancelled it.

Also, I take exception to SyFy claiming credit for Sanctuary. Sanctuary has been and still is a SPACE Original Program from episode one. SPACE ordered a fourth season not SyFy. See this article on SPACE’ website. […] http://www.spacecast.com/article/SPACE-Orders-Fourth-Season-of-Original-Production-SANCTUARY […]

If you don’t know,don’t check it out until you see the series to the end,seriously!

Normally I like the British counterparts to US shows more, but for some reason I like the US version of Being Human more then the British.
