Friday Faves and Raves

I am a big scifi dork, and one of my favorite shows is BBC's Being Human, which just finished its third season.  Now there is also an american version of this show on SyFy, a show they call a SyFy "original," though obviously it is not.  The thing that really makes the BBC version a superior show is (a) the writing of Toby Whithouse and (b) the relationship between the actors.

Finding dvds of BBC television shows out side of Barnes and Noble is rather uncommon, and more than that BBC dvds are generally way over priced, averaging $60 to $80 per season (and BBC seasons are about 13 episodes, nowhere near the 23 to 26 episodes that american shows average every season).  So i was surprised at first finding the the third season of Being Human at Target last night, and thrilled when i read the price tag - $35!  Score!

If you haven't seen this show, watch it.  If you've seen the SyFy version, give the real original a try, it is a truely fantastic show.
