Reviews

All episodes from the first to fourth series of the BBC comedy drama about three very unusual flat-sharers. At first sight there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary about George (Russell Tovey) and Mitchell (Aidan Turner), but both harbour dark secrets. Once a month, geeky hospital porter George is transformed into a rabid, flesh-tearing werewolf, while womanising, man-about-town Mitchell is trying to forego his blood-sucking vampire instincts. As they take the keys to their new home, the boys discover that their flat has another occupant - lonely ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow), who died in a car accident days before she was due to marry her fiancé. The episodes comprise: 'Flotsam and Jetsam', 'Tully', 'Ghost Town', 'The Black Day', 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'Bad Moon Rising', 'Cure and Contagion', 'Serve God, Love Me and Mend', 'Long Live the King', 'Educating Creature', 'The Looking Glass', 'In the Morning', 'Damage', 'All God's Children', 'Lia', 'Adam's Family', 'Type 4', 'The Pack', 'The Longest Day', 'Daddy Ghoul', 'Though the Heavens Fall', 'The Wolf-Shaped Bullet', 'Eve of the War', 'Being Human 1955', 'The Graveyard Shift', 'A Spectre Calls', 'Hold the Front Page', 'Puppy Love', 'Making History' and 'The War Child'.

I ordered this box set as it had been suggested that the series might be something that I might like. Given an urgent need to find exciting, interesting viewing for the Christmas period. I thought I would give this a go. The premise; a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost get a flat together sounds like the beginning of a joke but at least in the first 2 series the jokes are interspersed with really bleak, black comedic moments.

Well written and compelling in the first instance, as the second series reaches its end, the storyline falters as characters show unexpected character changes, some of the plotlines seem to show a real potential for the wheels to come off entirely.

Character and location changes prove a challenge to the continuity, perhaps this would not be so evident if watching on a week by week basis, but watching a couple of episodes a day over Christmas seemed to highten the impression of a slightly cut and paste approach to plot development.

All in all, it was a good watch, despite my gripes and I'm happy that the set provided good entertainment value for money

For those of you unfamilar with the premise, a ghost, a werewolf & a vampire walk into a bar..........ok there is no bar these three supernatural characters share a house. Yes it does sound like the begining of a bad joke but "Being Human' certainly is no bad joke. Well written & superbly acted, this series runs the gauntlet between humor & drama effortlesly.

The set itself isn't the complete series ( a 4th one was recently announced)but with the departure of key characters at the end of season 3, it is likely that this is the "pre shark jump' of the series. As to the look of the set, it's fairly basic, three plastic dvd cases & an outer thin carboard box to house them in.

As is common ith dvds there are some special features, fairly stock standard (deleted & exteneded scenes, cast interviews etc) but at this price I wasn't expecting anything with a "wow" factor, besides, the show itself has enough wow to suit even the fussiest of viewer

To sum up, a great buy for rainy days, sunny days, cloudy days however maybe not on a full moon...werewolf Geogre may just find you!

Being Human combines comedy/drama/horror/romance all into one show and actually succeeds in doing a great job combining it. Sesaon One, set in Bristol in England, we're introduced to the characters and we see how George and Mitchell are struggling to maintain a normal life while Annie is dealing with her death and trying to move on with her life. Things become more complication when Mitchell's old 'friend' Herrick tries to get Mitchell back into their fold of creating an army of Vampires, George has to heal trying to juggle a relationship with his werewolf transformations and Annie is trying to find her purpose for sticking around. This all leads to a massive head in the season finale and leaves viewer wanting more.

Season 2 deals with the aftermath of Series 1. Mitchell must struggle with the dual responsibilities of managing his own urges and attempting to manage the now scattered and rudderless Bristol vampire community. Annie must find a new purpose in her continued presence and must also deal with the malignant attention of another type of supernatural being, resident in the afterlife but able to influence events in the world. George has to try to return to himself after embracing his werewolf in Season One.
The trio are also subject to the growing attentions of a mysterious organisation (possibily called the Centre for the Study of Supernatural Activity, or CenSSA) led by the scientist Dr Jaggatt and the priest-administrator Kemp. This organisation has identified and classified the three different types of supernatural creature - vampire, werewolf and ghost - and is continuing to research them, although it's evident from the start that they are quite prepared to let subjects die in the course of the research.

When i initially tuned in to series 1 of Being Human, i was a bit unsure of the concept it sounded like a bad sitcom with a werewolf, ghost and vampire sharing a flat together. However, i'm glad i gave it a go and was rewarded with a compellingly acted, well written supernatural show which had it's own unique identity from other supernatural shows i have seen and retained some good British humour.
The cast work very well together and have believable chemistry so you are hoping they will over come their many challenges, the storylines are interesting enough each series and my only criticism for the show overall was that series 2 was a little too dark at times with the storylines and tone in general, series 3 however retained more of the lightness of series 1 but still had some dark moments throughout.
Was pleased to hear the BBC have renewed the show for another series and after the emotional ending of series 3, it looks like the show could go in many different directions creatively and i'll be tuning in next year to see more adventures of George, Annie and company, while this is isn't the definative boxset it has some good extras and I recommend it to individuals looking for good british sci fi besides Doctor Who.
