On Jan. 17 the SyFy Channel will debut a new series called Being Human about a vampire, a ghost, and a werewolf rooming together and trying to avoid being noticed. It's based on a British series that's said to be a big hit in the UK. I watched a few episodes of the original on BBC America, but I didn't find the show engaging or even very interesting. But maybe this is one of those shows that have to be watched right from the beginning.
