Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Being Human Being Human is a horror comedy series based on a British show of the same title about a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost who share an apartment. It debuted on SyFy in January to an audience in the two million viewer range. This would get a series cancelled on network television, but for SyFy it's huge -- the final episodes of Caprica had less than one million viewers. Counting repeat airings (but not discounting repeat viewers) the numbers reached almost four million. By way of comparison, a single January airing of Fringe, a moderately successful network show, was seen by almost five million viewers. I'm not much of a horror fan (though I do love Dark Shadows), but I plan to give Being Human a try. I'll let you know what I think in the mid-February column.

The last ten episodes of Stargate Universe will air sometime this Spring, though Stargate fans still hope that they can save the Stargate franchise. Fringe, following in the footsteps of Lost, is talking about a finite story arc lasting seven years. Game of Thrones comes to HBO in April. Wonder Woman is coming to tv, probably in the Fall.
