being human us in 2010 / 24 s8 promo / transformers 2 dvd sales / today

SyFy Channel has picked up a US version of the hit UK supernatural drama series Being Human for 13 episodes. “Being Human is a re-imagining of the acclaimed BBC original. Three 20-something roommates, a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf, struggle to keep their dark secrets from the world, while helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives.” I really enjoyed the first very brief season of the UK series, so I’m hoping this is great as well. According to SFX, Syfy even passed on co-producing the original UK series.. and now they’re making their own. Ha. :p The US series is expected to premiere in Summer 2010.. while the UK version’s second season is set to begin airing in the UK in January 2010. 🙂

FOX premiered the very first promo for the upcoming eighth season of 24 last night during their MLB World Series coverage. Missed it? Click here to check it out. The new season will begin with another two-night, four-hour event beginning January 17th on FOX. 🙂

Video Business reports that Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen has sold 7.5 million DVD & Blu-ray units in its first week in stores. Wow. And 1.2 million of those are Blu-rays. The first installment in the series sold 8.3 million copies in its first week..

Before heading to bed last night, I watched Naruto Shippuden (episode 1, uncut via free PSN download.. nice start, though I wish I had seen the episodes leading up to it.. dubbed that is.. on TV or something), Secret Girlfriend (lol, good episode) and Naruto Shippuden (episode 1, Disney XD’s edited vers– *falls asleep soon after starting it.. damnit*).

I awoke in the morning.. and got online for a while.. and had many problems with the cable modem. Throughout the day. It would keep disconnecting once the bandwidth would stop being used or something. 😦 ..We watched some morning TV and had some breakfast.. After he was done with his news, I took over again and got onto PlayStation Home (new stuff to waste my money on! yeah! *throws money* *wears new clothes for five minutes, then changes to something else* >_>), then played some more Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time (awesome.. loving this game.. even the Clank solo gameplay, which I used to not like.. so yay).

A little after 5:30, I shut off the game and got online to news-gather. Then we had some fast food for supper, mainly paid for by ourselves.. since there wasn’t anything else left in the kitchen. :/ But at least I convinced him not to make it burgers for the 234536363th time (Taco Bell!).. In primetime, we watched Community (lol), Parks And Recreation (lol), The Office (lol, damnit.. promo fooled me again.. can’t we have a full Halloween episode for once? I guess not) and 30 Rock (lol).

Room for night. See.
