We have now seen the rest of the premier for Being Human, a Syfy Original show about a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire all living under one roof trying to be human. While the show does have great promis the second part was rushed and disjointed at times. Syfy even saw fit to run even more commercials then usual.

Aside from the strong language, this romantic comedy is really cute, and is one I come back to time and again. Marcy Tizard (Janeane Garofalo) is a cynical campaign worker for Senator John McGlory (Jay O. Sanders), an incumbent running for reelection in Boston. The Senator is a good man, but he has had problems sticking to certain issues in the past, and these little mini-scandals are coming to bite him during this election season. Since Boston has such a heavy Irish population, the senator’s slick campaign manager, Nick (Denis Leary) is looking to play up the Irish ethnic factor of the senator’s roots. They send Marcy to Ballinagra, supposedly the town in Ireland where the McGlorys came from in the 1930s. What Marcy does not know about about Ballinagra is that she has come to the town during the week of the annual Matchmaking Festival, and the town is in chaos from all the people coming in from all over the world trying to get the ultimate hook-up.

Syfy has given us another show that just might be good to watch every Monday night. The Show is called Being Human and is based off the hit series from BBC of the same name that has just started its third season just as Syfy starts with its own rendition of the show. Being Human features the talents of Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington. It is a show about 3 people that desperately want to live a normal life but there is no way that they can.
