    There are an overwhelming majority of people that thing he portrayed "being sad while sitting on a street bench" superbly. Many people actually thought he really was sad.

    Where's my majestic unicorn now?

    We'll have to follow Jack to it because we aren't innocent. Don't touch it though or you will start the Unicorn Apocalypse and goblins and Tim Curry will do bad things.

    This is obviously British television copying the noticeably superior American television.

    Well, that makes a change from them copying us
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.

    American version of Being Human is so awful. I couldn't even watch one episode of it. Though it will be interesting to see Tennant reprising a role, but as an American version of his character.

    American version of Being Human... Nope... Never happened, I think you're imagining things, I don't recall that show ever being made

    If we are going to be honest here, while British tv has not copied US television that much, I think Hollywood has had a huge influence on British Television/movies. But this is pretty undisputed.

    And I can understand us remaking television shows that don't speak English, but remaking shows that are in English is just stupid, just watch the origanl, come on.

    Keanu Reeves would have improved our version of Being Human...that's how terrible the 15 minutes of it I could watch were. It clearly doesn't have the soul, writing, or any measure of similarity as the UK version. It is a tragedy that it was ever made.

    I laughed so hard at that I woke my cat up, she's now pissed at me... your fault.

    To be honest I think it would have been hard to match the original being human... Toby Whithouse just hit the nail right on the head. The later seasons after all the original cast left were a bit weak, but the early ones were right up there with my favourite shows.

    Also, favourite Being Human US trivia: They called the vampire "Aiden" because they read the original script wrong, wanted to give the Vampire the same name as the UK version, but named him after the actor instead .

    Don't know it's that's true, but it's lolworthy regardless.
