Being Human = Being Brilliant!

I don't know how you might feel about American Network TV shows...

Personally, IMHO, many - and on some nights, most - Suck.

Enter the BBC... or, to be more accurate, BBCA (BBC America).

In one word... "Brilliant".

Brilliantly original shows, Brilliantly cast, Brilliant acting, Brilliantly clever, smart and funny writing with Brilliant twists and unexpected turns.

Take, for example, the show called "Being Human".

"George (Russell Tovey) and Mitchell (Aidan Turner) work in anonymous drudgery as hospital porters in Bristol, England. They lead lives of quiet desperation under the burden of a terrible secret - Mitchell's a vampire and George a werewolf... Not known, historically, to pal around with each other. But, Mitchell and George have become friends and confide in each other. Deciding to start life afresh and leave behind the dark side (the two young men take special measures to try to avoid killing people), they move into a house, only to find that Annie (Lenora Crichlow), the ghost of a woman killed in mysterious circumstances, haunts it. As the monster threesome deal with the challenges of their new life together, they're united in their strong desire to be "normal", to blend in with their human neighbors... to Be Human."

Regardless of how corny the description may sound... It's a Fantastic show!

I've included three videos - below - that introduce each of the characters... Just to give you a... uh, taste.
