New Shows I've been watching

Below are my personal opinions regarding the listed programs. Read at your own risk.

Demons: I'm not as impressed as most of my friends. It's a shameless knock off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Instead of a bunch of American teenagers with an English mentor however, we've got two English teenagers with an American mentor. The mentor's first name is the same as Buffy's bookish watcher, Rupert (a rather BRITISH name for this supposed American I might add). He's played by Philip Glenister (who I adored in Life on Mars) and he does a passable American accent, but the character is cliche to the point of being nearly ridiculous. I mean, come on, he likes crappy Country Music? Plus, I don't like how the "half-lives" these people "smite" have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. It's a little too black and white for me. None of the humans (other than Mina and she's only somewhat deserving of the title) seem to have any sympathy whatsoever for these creatures and no guilt at having to kill them. My husband likes the show though, so I'm still watching it.

Being Human: I was skeptical at first, but I really like this show. The characters are likable, while still swimming in flaws. It's funny, while still pulling at your heart strings and dramatic enough to be slightly disturbing at times. I didn't even mind when they changed most of the actors after the pilot; I like the new ones better anyway. I also completely love poor George. He's so pathetic and adorable I just want to cuddle him. Beware though, Mitchell and George are just asking to be slashed. I think I'll stay away from any livejournal sites that might pop up for this particular program.

Dollhouse: I've only seen one episode so far. That being said I did find it slightly confusing to follow and just a bit dull. I am a huge Joss Whedon fan though, so I'm going to give the show the benefit of the doubt and watch a few more episodes before I make any final decisions.
