For What It's Worth

Happy TGIF!

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books. Her question for this weeks hop is:

Do you ever wish you would have named your blog something different? Yes, it took me forever to come up with this one and I just went with it because if I waited for the perfect blog name I probably still wouldn't be blogging! I still think of changing it at times but that would probably make things confusing.

Follow Friday is hosted by  Parajunkee. She asks:

Share your current fav television show! Tell us a bit about it... Right now I'm watching Being Human on BBCA - the original version. I haven't been able to warm up to the SyFy one. It's about a ghost, vampire and werewolf trying to live among humans and fight the urges that threaten to consume them, (at least in the case of the vampire & werewolf) Great show!

I have several contests for the month of February - they all end on the 28th so check the links under my header if you're interested in entering.

Happy Hopping!


  1. Oh I want to watch that! Sometimes I really hate that I don't have cable!

    My FF is at Coffee Table Press

  2. I haven't watched more than just the first show. But over here is a USA girl. I love their shows like Burn Notice, In plain sight, white collar.

  3. I would really like to see the original version of Being Human because we just could not get into the SyFy version at all. It sounded like such a great concept but the American execution wasn't working for us - something seemed off.

  4. hopping by! new follower!! Hope you check out my blog as well! =]

    i love pretty little liars!

  5. here's mine

  6. 30 Rock. How can you not love a show that coins phrases like...

    "I want to go to there."

    "I love this cornbread so much I wanna take it behind a middle school at get it pregnant."

    "I can't eat this, I'm a foodie."

    "I'm wearing a tux 'cause its after six. What am I, a farmer?"

    "Oh my god, where are my manners? Do you wanna try meth?"

    "I never sleep on planes. I don't wanna get 'incepted.'"

    "First of all, I look weird there because I'm snarting."

    Ok. You have to be a fan after "snarting". That's a sneeze fart.

    Lemon out!

  8. I also couldn't get into the American Being Human. Everyone is raving about the BBC one, though, so maybe I'll check that one out.

    I love your blog name!

  9. Hopping through. Being Human sounds like a really interesting show.
    My Hop

  10. I really like the BBC version of Being Human as well. The American version just hasn't been able to live up to it (at least, so far).

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Old follower hopping through for the weekend. I fell in love with the BBC Being Human series last year (watched both seasons within a week). I tried the first couple episodes of the new US version and there are a few things I like and a few things I hate.

    I actually prefer the werewolf in the US version (less whiny/squeaky), but I love the vamp and ghost in the UK version. The special effects are definitely ramped up in the US version, but I thought the 'working around limited effects' was kinda charming for the UK show. Less sparkle and more substance. But I think the major thing that's keeping me from getting into the US version is the fact that I've already seen it. There are a few tweaks here and there, but overall we've already been there, done that. I want to skip ahead, ya know?

    If you feel like hopping my way, come venture into The Wolf's Den. Hope you're having a great weekend!

  12. @Vicki - I'm with you - I do like the US "George" better but I just can't get into the US Mitchel or Annie. It also seemed like they crammed all two seasons of the BBC show into the season premiere of the US one.
    I like the lower budget effects too. It adds to the mood for me. They tend to focus more on the plot and acting than the special effects.
