<I>Being Human</I>: More Human Than Human

Syfy's version of Being Human completely baffles me. I don't understand at all why it exists. Don't get me wrong" I understand the general concept of remaking UK shows for American audiences, particularly something like Skins, where the likelihood of getting the majority of 15-year-old MTV viewers to sit down and watch a show with British teenagers is highly unlikely. Or taking a comedy like The Office and translating the humor so that the majority of American audiences can feel in on the jokes. But in my experience, that doesn't really hold true for science fiction. Most of the sci-fi fans I know are usually pretty up on the UK shows that fit this genre, particularly if they've already aired on BBC America, like the original Being Human did.
