'BEING HUMAN' (USA) 1.4 - "Wouldn't It Be Nice (If We Were Human)"
This isn't actually a review, just a quick note to say I'm dropping Being Human USA from my weekly review cycle. I don't hate this remake, but it's a pale imitation of the BBC version and, frankly, the fact it's recycling so many storylines and ideas means I can't summon the will to write about it. You know my general thoughts about the tone, style and performances by now. It's a show that knows all the notes, but doesn't quite hear the music. But if you haven't seen the UK original, I'm sure you're enjoying it just fine. Hopefully you'll be encouraged to watch the pedigree version; which is more pragmatic, scarier and funnier.
