Did anyone else beside me watch this amazing show? In case you havent heard of it, here is the show summary
"Life among the living is tough enough, but meet Mitchell, a 120-year-old vampire, George, a highly intelligent werewolf, and Annie an agoraphobic ghost who died under mysterious circumstances, whom all live together with just the slight bit of hope that they can fit into the community and smile at the thought of being human. But they soon discover that being human is not as easy as they hoped."
i personally thought it was awesome how everything was portrayed and put together.

I watched it! Being a sucker for supernatural/fantasy/sci-fi themed shows there was no way I was going to miss it.
I loved it, I thought the storyline was great and really well-written, and I love how everything panned out. The actors were brilliant too, I love George, he was so cute and awkward! I have the DVD so I'll be watching it again.
Season two is confirmed, I think it's being written atm and I'm excited for it :D

I don't know, I don't think they've revealed it and I'm not sure if they ever will. If they do though perhaps they'll mention it in S2.

I love George, he's so twitchy and sweet!!
I'm annoyed at how the vampire thing's going up in smoke these days, first Twilight now this. Vampires are allergic to sunshine, people. *rolls eyes* :P But I love Annie too, wasn't she in Sugar Rush?

Yeah she was Sugar, the friend that the lesbian fancied. George was in Gavin and Stacey (I love G&S), his character in that is really different.
The vampires in Supernatural could walk in sunlight but it was painful for them to do so, and the SN demons are normally quite 'realistic', definitely not in the same way as Twilight.

I thought I knew her from somewhere!
It irked me in Supernatural too, even if it was painful. I like my vampire stories to be traditional. XD
I ended up hating, Annie's fiance, he just looks like a smarmy guy. ¬_¬

I loved that show! My favourites were George and Annie! Not that I've got anything against Mitchell!
Bring on Series 2!

The vampires in Twilight annoyed me to no end. Seriously VAMPIRES DONT SPARKLE!! and apparently that was the only reason they didnt like the sun.
the ones on Supernatural didnt bug me as much as Vampires usually do. I like the Buffy Vampires or the Anne Rice Vampires.
On Being Human,I really cant decide which one is my favorite though. I like all three for different reasons.
ps i hate the Blade and Underworld movies.

Ive been working on the Us version..I Love this show..

My current favourite show I think. All the witty lines, the actors have really great on screen chemistry and the stories are exciting. I haven't watched the US version though, and I wont. I don't like remakes that much. Used to love Aidan on the show and thought I would stop watching this season, but surprisingly I find myself loving the show even more! :D Finally some vampires and werewolfs that act like they should!

This post has spoilers about the UK version. Don't click the below button link if you have not watched the 1st episode of Season 4 (2012).
Well, I was sad that they killed out yet another of my fav characters...George. First John Mitchell, the vampire played by the sexy Aidan Turner, is willingly killed...then Nina, the werewolf and George's mate, gets killed by the vampires...now George, the werewolf, dies after sacrificing himself to save his baby daughter.
With those 3 gone, I don't think I can watch the BBC version now. I'll give it a try since Annie, the ghost, is still there...for now anyway. But who knows what her fate will be. Plus, I'm not sure if I like the characters for the new teeny-bopper vampire (I forget his name) and Thomas McNair, the new werewolf.
I've started watching the US version, and I like how the storyline is different from the UK version.
