Synopsis – contains spoilers:
Constable O'Shea, the local policeman does his daily rounds on sleepy Erin Island. His daily routine basically consists of a trip to the local pub to drink freely with the charming eccentrics that populate his village. His life is firstly thrown out of kilter when Lisa an efficient and by-the-book policewoman is sent from the mainland to join his staff, but furthermore his daily routine is thrown into disarray when odd things keep occurring. 
O’Shea is faced with dead whales, decapitated fishermen and weird goings-on. He soon discovers that alien creatures or "grabbers" (giant squid-like aliens with tentacles, claws and a barbed tongue) are responsible for making mincemeat of the locals. On the verge of a new attack, O'Shea and Lisa discover that the only person who survived a “grabber” attack was completely drunk and that his blood was literally toxic to the monsters. Thus, there is only one thing to do: they need to let all the inhabitants drink in order to survive the night ... a task that the citizens accept with pleasure! But one person must remain sober for the first time in years - O'Shea has to face the enemy without taking a sip. When things do not go as planned, an extremely drunk Lisa and a very sober O'Shea have to reconcile their differences and somehow save the day.

BBC America's BEING HUMAN premieres its fourth season on Saturday, February 25th as part of "Supernatural Saturday." 

In an old B&B in a sleepy seaside Welsh town, there lives a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost determined to live a normal human life while fighting off evil and bringing up a baby. But out there, lurking in every corner of society, there are vampires ready to rid the world of its humanity. The Old Ones are on their way and it's up to our heroes to fight for the right to live in peace. Not only are there vampires to seek revenge on, there's also a malevolent ghost on the loose and someone's trying to expose the existence of werewolves... Not to mention all the diapers that need changing. 


It took a little convincing for one producer to embrace Sam Huntington


It's hard to look at the cast of Syfy's "Being Human" and imagine anyone other than Sam Witwer, Sam Huntington and Meaghan Rath in the primary roles of roommates dealing with supernatural problems. That is, unless you are imagining the cast of the British version of "Being Human," which starred Aidan Turner, Russell Tovey, Sinead Keenan and Lenora Crichlow. In fact, there was one producer on the show that had a hard time imagining anyone other than Tovey being the show's werewolf ... at first.
"We showed up at a mix and match, and we just kind of knew that it had to be each other," Witwer, who plays the vampire Aidan in the American series, said at San Diego Comic-Con last July 2011.
A mix and match is where various actors audition with other actors, a way for casting producers to find chemistry between different people. When Huntington came up to audition, however, the actor -- best known before as Jimmy Olsen in "Superman Returns" -- impressed everyone, but there was still a single holdout on finalizing his casting.
"They all wanted Sammy, well, all except one guy," Witwer said, adding that this unnamed person is "wonderful to the show now" who helped get "Being Human" going. "He had a conceptual problem where he kept seeing Russell Tovey in his head, and Sammy is very different."
The goal for the American version was to capture the spirit that has found legion of fans for the British version, while still creating something unique.
"I think we are all pretty different," Huntington said. "Now that I have seen the [British] show, these characters are going through similar things during the day, but they are very, very different people."

"USA Being Human" returns for its second season Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Syfy.
