So the latest show to be stolen from the UK and remade in the US (by SyFy) is “Being Human”.
I have mixed emotions about this.
The UK one is the first one, and pretty damn good. However, it has become a little difficult to get these episodes here and the remake would be easier to watch.

Also, it looks like they upped the budget for the US version so it will look really cool, but will it affect the writing? Lastly, it stars the dude who played Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns (Sam Huntington) and say what you will about that movie, he played a spot on Jimmy. So this could turn out pretty good, or just be shit.
Here’s hoping they never do this to “Doctor Who”.
What say you Sucker Punchers? Are American remakes of British shows doomed from the start, or is it a good opportunity to rebrand it in America? Chime in!
