Awesome news for those of you who love Syfy’s remake of Being Human more than the original UK version! The first season of the remake is finally coming to both DVD and Blu-ray! Yay! On November 15, 2011 you can pick up your copy of Season one and all the extras features included.
“Being Human is a re-imagining of the acclaimed BBC original series that follows three 20-something roommates: A ghost, a vampire and a werewolf who are struggling to keep their dark secrets from the world, while also helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives.
“Being Human is a smart, contemporary, young and imaginative series that reflects Syfy’s new brand positioning. We are very excited to adapt this for an American audience and bring it into Syfy’s family of programming,” said Dave Howe, President, Syfy.
The series will star Sam Witwer (Smallville, Battlestar Galactica), Meaghan Rath (The Assistants), Sam Huntington (Cavemen, Superman Returns) and Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural).
Rounding out the creative team is Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Heroes) as director and co-executive producer, with executive producer Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth) alongside husband and wife executive producers/writers Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) and Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood).”
DVD and Blu-ray extras include:
- The Making of Being Human
- “What Would You Choose?” Featurette
- Additional Interviews with Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington
- Being Human at San Diego Comic-Con
It’s a shame the Blu-ray version doesn’t offer more than the DVD, unfortunately they have the same special features.
Anyone here planning on picking this up? I am considering it, personally I love Syfy’s Being Human far more than the original UK version. BBC’s Being Human isn’t as good as SyFy’s in my opinion, from the look of the show to the actor’s performances, it’s lacking. What do you think?

I prefer the syfy version as well and will definitely be making it part of my collection.
On a side note it’s nice to see someone else appreciates it. Even as someone that saw the UK version first I am confounded and a bit put off that so many people not only think the UK version is superior, but think it is so much better that it’s appropriate to shit all over syfy’s version.
Love the show can’t wait for the next season
