Anyone else "Being Human" tonight?  
So who else is watching Being Human at 9pm tonight? I was so tempted by the fact that Supernatural is airing with S4 at the same time, but have managed to overcome my almost overwhelming need to rewatch the first couple of episodes in favour of the Vampire, the Werewolf and the Ghost sharing a flat... ;)
edt: half an hour through and I'm feeling rather bored of it. Maybe should have watched Supernatural afterall. Ugh. Is anyone else annoyed by the other vampires? I definitly think I prefer the more "gothy" version they had in the promo. Ghost chick is less annoying than in the promo though. George is still awesome. And gets naked alot. Huh, how about that XD

edt 2: well that wasn't worth the hour I just wasted watching it. and the preview for next week doesn't exactly make me bounce in glee either. am I being too cynical? I mean it just felt very lacking. I can see they're trying to build up to something, but it's nothing that's really gripping me and making me think "omg must stay tuned" meh. still, in exciting news, I changed stations the second it finished and caught Castiel's big introduction on Supernatural- SQUEE! XD

There aren't any spoilers so much as my reaction to the whole thing, but I'll keep mum till you've seen it.

In EXCITING news, as soon as it finished I tuned in and caught Castiel's big introduction and got so very flaily over him XD heh... have you seen any of this series yet?
mrs_cj_harknessmrs_cj_harkness on January 25th, 2009 10:26 pm (UTC)
Hee! Just one thing: Is it good? :P or is that a silly question?

OOO such a pretty icon <3 My first reaction was OMG PRETTY! No, i've only seen hte first episode; and am not too tired to stay up and watch the next very exciting episode :(

Um... well... I'll not say anything at all and see how you like it first ;)

XD CASTIEL IS MADE OF SEXY. Did you enjoy the first episode? If you can't watch the next one and want to watch it another time, just poke me, you know? ;) heh.

Sneaky!! :P Tomorrow, for sure.

I really did! It drew me in really quickly and kept my attention (unlike a certain program with a sexy dead!UNIT guy in I'd been watching an hour earlier) And trust me, expect a pke tomorrow. I don't know whether I can wait too long.

The only reason I didn't watch SPN is because, well still on S2 here!!! Being Human was good, I enjoyed it. But then I'm weird....I'll look forward to next weeks.

That's the season you bought for xmas isn't it? How far are you :D

Hmm, it was okay, but I kept thinking "Supernatural is on the other station omg", and the fact I've seen the series before is probably not a good thing in terms of how much I liked "Being Human". I might watch next week, but I'm that way that I probably won't be upset if I miss it.
Joulez217joulez217 on January 25th, 2009 10:25 pm (UTC)
I have just put the last disk in for Season 2. So will probably finish it off tomorrow night and start 3!!

Ah yeah I know what you mean.

Joulez217joulez217 on January 25th, 2009 10:40 pm (UTC)
Hehe nope that is why I've gotten through S2 in the space of three/four days!! Pretty much yeah. I should have done this a long time ago! XD

So it takes me a while to listen! *shrugs* I'm slow hehe.

I watched Being human and loved it!
Also noticed how two of the main characters have been in Doctor Who.

The BBC love recycling their actors XD

what did you like about it? I just couldn't seem to get into it and kept thinking that there were other things I'd rather be doing instead of watching it, you know?
crayon_harknesscrayon_harkness on January 25th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
I don't know really. I saw the original pilot a while back and loved it then so was very happy that they were making it into a full series. I just think my love for all things supernatural gets the better of me and it's a good substitute for Torchwood at the moment.

In BBC's Merlin most of the characters have been in Doctor Who or Torchwood, it was quite weird getting used to it at the start!

I really liked the promo too, and was excited for the new series but... well, I was a bit underwhelmed by it all. It'll maybe get more exciting as it goes on. I think there's only like 6episodes so something is bound to happen!

heh, I kind of like it because it means all those "small" part actors usually end up in their own shows! Like with "Merlin" and "Demons" :D
crayon_harknesscrayon_harkness on January 25th, 2009 10:29 pm (UTC)
I have never seen Demons. My parents own a pub and I was sat down there yesterday and it was on, and I just remember wondering what on earth it was until I saw the end credits. May have to watch it I think.

I think with Being Human, looking from the point of view of someone who has never seen it before it was a tad confusing and didn't make full sense, it was like they had automatically presumed that everyone had seen the pilot episode.
Campaspecs_whitewolf on January 25th, 2009 10:35 pm (UTC)
I haven't actually seen Demons yet, though I'm dying to (it's finding the time, ugh) but I heart Christian Cooke (the lead actor) from being in DW, so I'm hoping it's good!

Yes! That right there, too. And I mean that was *ages* ago, they can't expect us all to have seen it/remember it/etc. I had to keep trying to remember wtf was happening lol. I prefered the "gothy" vampires from the promo though, these ones... ugh, are just annoying the hell outta me.
crayon_harknesscrayon_harkness on January 25th, 2009 10:38 pm (UTC)
Having the police involved in covering up murders etc just reminded me of Hot Fuzz!
And I really didn't mind the hot vampire with the even hotter accent :p

There was also a bit where one of the policemen/vampires said that 'everything changes' ... I just ended up spilling out Captain Jacks opening speech ... much to my brothers annoyance!

I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by it. But them I loved the original cast so much I was line of expecting to hate it.
But after about 20 minutes worth of sulking the new Mitchell and Annie managed to win me over.

I don't think it was as good as the pilot. there was a lot of having to in back over stuff which could have been avoided if they'd just kept tim old cast and reshown the pilot before starting the series. But them I guess that problem will go away once they've introduced the new viewers to the backstory.

The vampire policeman just seemed ridiculous.

but yeah overall I was impressed. probably helps going in with low expectations though. oh and don't forget there's always ITV2+1 so you don't have to miss Supernatural to watch Being Human.

You know what I did :)

I saw a repeat of Being Human though. I felt it was a bit long. Maybe 45 mins would have been better.

Had a couple of not bad moments but apart from that I wasn't all that bothered.

One down though - let's see how the rest go. Maybe it gets better.
