Being Human US ep 112
Just watched the latest ep and it annoyed me.

The US version of Josie, aka Selene (I think), just seemed too young to me, but I could have let go of that one.

What really kinda pisses me off is that they didn't allow Sally to get Annie's crowing moment of awesome from s1.

You know, when she faces Danny, tells him exactly what she's living together with and then tells him the secret that only the Death know. Scaring the living shit out of him.

In the US version on the other hand, he doesn't get to be nearly as creepy as he was in the UK version and worse than that, Sally isn't the one to scare Danny, Aidan is. The scene became all about Aidan and Josh taking retribution for her sake, instead about her regaining control of herself and her life.

Sure, she gets to be the one who chooses to let him live, but seriously, the moment doesn't have nearly the power that the scene in the UK version did and that's a real dissapointment.

I might actually like that they no longer blindly follow the original, but seriously, if they had to copy one thing from the original, that scene should have been it.

oh I liked the zombie make up, nice to see some after effects of the attempted exorcism. (though the whole thing with the salt in last week's ep, just made me think of spn and made me wonder when the Winchesters were going to show up*eg*)

But seriously, half the strength of the scenes with Josie, is that she was an older woman, that she lived a full life and that it's that life that lets her refuse to be turned when he offers.

But then they don't seem to dare and come close to taking any risks where the female actors are concerned. Half of what I mind about Nora is that she's so... forgettable.

Nina is feisty, interesting, she's one of my fave characters in the series. Nora... she's ignorable. It's like when they casted her, they didn't even consider that she might become a long term character, which to me is a major flaw.

Or the way that sweet naive overweight Cara is played by a sweet little pretty blond. (and easily killed off for no reason)

One of the fun things about the uk vamps is that they come in all body types, ages and genders. The US vamps are much more cliché and have a hell of a lot less variety.

Well if you have an older or less perfectly attractive female character the sexist, parent's-basement dwelling, neckbeard, sci-fi fanboys will complain and/or tune out.

I think I've been in the scene too long. I got a little bitter.
