You can certainly see the similarity to Buffy... Ordinary person genetically programmed to "get" monsters...even a picture book of demon types a la Buffy. And the kookie friend (the good werewolf). I agree the balance was a l ittle off somehow, but it was interesting and I'll give it another try...although if it competes with Fringe it may have to wait. I expect Fringe to end soon, and want to see how it wraps. Last night there was no Fringe, just a ballgame (ok, a world series game).
