one good thing about the newer, U.S. series: if you want to understand the actual difference between British TV and U.S. TV, you can watch the last 20 minutes of the final episode of Season 1 in the original U.K. version of Being Human

If you loved the British villain in this series as much as I did---such a complex, well-developed character with almost no hint of cliche---his American counterpart will really depress you, especially in this particular scene.

You don't have to know anything about the plot, characters or writing to grasp the difference between the two. You just have to have eyes and the ability to think.
The difference will be quite clear.
