    Not too bad. Aiden and Josh are pretty good, although Josh doesn't hold a candle to George. So far, I don't care for Sally at all. Annie had a vunerable quality that Sally doesn't.

    I hope that the fill-in nurse goes away. Nothing but annoying. Reminds me - in a bad way - of the Daisy character on Bones. I hope she isn't the Nina of the show.

    Also - Artemis I agree with you about the Bishop character. Herrick was much more chilling.

    I didn't notice any French signs, but this particular production company would be used to looking for that kind of thing. I did specifically notice one Stop sign that said just Stop. It was very clean looking.

    Is the she-werewolf part going to be George's sister in the US version instead of his girlfriend like in the UK version? I don't remember George having a sister in the UK version.

    I don't recall a sister either. It certainly seems like they are setting it up that way.

    I saw ads for this and thought it looked interesting enough to give it a shot. I didn't even realize it was based from a BBC series. I like it and will watch again but I won't be able to play the "spot the differences from the original" game.

    Maybe, maybe not. The way they ended the episode, there's potentially time for either Sally to will herself to become solid enough to open the door, or for Aiden to wake up from his blood trance -- and therefore get to the hospital to intervene in time.

    Having Josh attack & "wolf" his sister just seems ick. Plus if Sally or Aiden don't get there, Josh-as-werewolf is more likely to attack & kill the sister outright -- in an enclosed space like that, with no way out and no other source of food, werewolf eats human, no question.

    It's really not a fun game, esp. when the differences are usually not improvements. You're lucky that you don't have the UK series to compare it to, you can enjoy it at face value.

    So far:
    The character names are different.
    I think she-wolf will be Josh's sister instead of girlfriend.
    The house set-up is different. The stairs are to the sidewall instead of by the door.
    And I'm wondering if her ghost entry to the afterlife is in the house closet or at her grave.

    They have too many shots and scenes that mimic the original without achieving the quality of the original. They also made a huge mistake naming the vampire Aidan. It only reminded me that the actor from the real version of Being Human is named Aidan.

    I'll watch a couple more to see if it improves but so far I think this is a very poor version of a good show.

    Another difference: in the UK, Mitch (vampire) is a custodian at the hospital and George (werewolf) is a porter (or orderly as he'd be called here). In the US, Aidan (vampire) is a nurse and Josh (werewolf) is ... they didn't say, did they? He had different coloured scrubs which leads me to believe he isn't a nurse, but that could be artistic licence. Aidan mentions him being a med student pre-werewolf, but I got the impression he's not a doctor now.

    Also, in the UK, there's no scene of Mitch & George going through a big first meeting with Annie.

    That scene was in the original pilot which didn't get included in the dvd release. It only aired in the UK on a different channel than the series ended up on. George was the only actor that stayed the same from the pilot to the series too. I found it online but I don't think it's up anymore.
