    Hmm. It's not bad but with so much else to watch I gave it up. Why DID Scyfy have to attempt a remake of the BBC America version, which frankly is so much better. At least the American version of BH is an improvement over the US version of Top Gear. Now that really sucked on it's own exhaust pipe.

    The ghost (Meaghan Rath), the vampire (Sam Witwer), and the werewolf (Sam Huntington) continue to work out their angst-addled yearnings to be human in this more neurotic version of the U.K. TV series.

    All in all it's a pretty deft mix of violence, pathos and ethos via a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost as roomies.

    For fans of the original, which is only a few years old, this Americanization may be a bit like going to see a road company version of a Broadway show: It's pretty good but definitely less morose (for some viewers that will be an improvement, for others it will be a betrayal).
