A vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost all living together in an apartment. Sounds pretty good right from the start, I thought, so I downloaded the original pilot back in February. The show was fantastic. Everything I'd hoped to see in a TV series like this. It wasn't stupid, it tried to do original things, the story was good and actually logical. The pilot was good enough that there was a grass-roots effort to get it into production that was apparently successful.

So the series is now in production, unfortunately after having been "rebooted" which in typical fashion means they've fucking eviscerated the show. I'm not exaggerating when I say they've taken everything that was good out of the show and replaced it with absolute shit.

If you're considering checking the series out just grab the original pilot off bittorrent and imagine what could have been a pretty cool show. It's as if they hired the Knight Rider team to re-imagine the series. Another cool idea flushed down the toilet by people who have no idea what they're doing.

You'll enjoy it if you're very very very forgiving. All the goodness of the original February pilot is sadly gone.

So I shouldn't anticipate the upcoming BBC America airing?

Well I've recently heard that it gets better starting in episode 2. I've been reluctant to watch the episodes and see for myself though. I've... I've just been hurt so many times before...
