I've watched the UK version of Being Human, and I'm curious about the US version. If they are different shows with the same basic concept, then I'll probably watch the the US series as well - but if it's just a remake of the same plot, then I'm not that interested.
How much overlap is there between the two series? e.g.
- Almost nothing: same core character names, same concept (vampire, ghost, werewolf living together)
- As above, plus main season arcs.
- As above, plus many episode plots.
Obviously there will be stylistic differences between the two, so there's no need to point those out. Also, unless you need to in order to explain the above, please forgo commenting on the relative (and subjective) quality.
I'd appreciate spoiler tags (start a line with >!) or leaving out major spoilers for the US version, but spoilers for the UK version are fine.
