Format: DVD
The series one and two boxset of the superhuman and superbrilliant BBC Three drama "Being Human" is an absolutely great boxset to own!

The premise of the programme actually didn't appeal to me in the slightest- vampires, werewolves and ghosts? Oh My. I assumed this show was jumping straight on to the "Twilight" bandwagon- but oh how very wrong I was.

The show, as the title suggests, despite being a fantasy, is incredibly human. The characters are warming, familiar and loveable, wonderfully played by Aidan Turner, Leonora Crichlow and the ever fantastic Russell Tovey- and the show brings along all kinds of emotions; there is obviously a good dose of tension inducing horror moments; but its also got some great tear-jerking, high emotion scenes, some excellent soft comedy and generally wonderfully written, excellent played drama.

In some ways the show is everything you would expect from a supernatural drama- lots of blood, guts and gore; animorphis and slipping through doorways- and it many ways it's not what you'd expect at all- the character's ambition is to live life as normally and humanly as possible and deal with their afflictions healthily, hence "Being Human", and the show that comes out of this idea is endearing and powerful- Aidan - a vampire - in particular struggles with this, much like an addict in a drug-based storyline, which makes for excellent and often high-tension based drama. George - a werewolf - doesn't struggle as much, and his character, who is a little bit of a softy, which makes his affliction even more horrifying, is excellent- all the cast are excellent in this programme, but Russell Tovey who plays George is phenomenally good- emotionally beautifully played and excellent comedy moments.

I thought this show was a bit slow to start but once it gets going its really good and enjoyable, its certainly not as glamorous as the american vampire tv shows but it has something they dont, british humour! If you like shows about the supernatural I'd definatley recommend it.

(This apples to both the box and the individual bluray discs only -the standard dvds are fine)The Blueray UK pressing of season 2 has a digital fault which makes many bluray players hang up and not plat disc 1.The manufacturer of the disc blames the players and the player blame the disc presser.Either way very frustrating. The US import bluray of season 2 does not have this problem, but then of course you need a code free player. (Won't play on my Oppo , and I've heard several other brands)

Format: DVD
With all the vampire hype going on on the other side of the Atlantic it was a matter of time before such enthusiasm came to European television. And it was a welcome sight to see it appear at the best of television makers: the BBC.

The only weak part is that there are so few episodes: I would have loved to see more characterisation of all three main characters. As the story goes along, the world of vampires is shown, lycanthropy is perused and ghostlyhood is skimmed. In particular in the latter part of season 2 the ghostly part of this story gets more screentime.

The acting is of the high quality one expects of BBC productions: personally I prefer George the most: Tovey creates a man that is under enourmous tension while trying to keep hold of his sanity. Given the fact that lycanthropy is portrayed as a lonelifying curse, there isn't much exploration of fellow werecreatures. Unfortunately. As one would expect, the vampiric aspects are explored in greater depth. I still wonder what this world has more in store. As for the spiritworld: especially the latter part of season 2 keeps one wondering what this world has more in store....

I'm looking forward to season 3 of this series: I just hope the supernatural part (with all the special effects bits) won't overwhelm the series which will leave in lacking in psychological aspects and storytelling. I don't think the BBC will cave in to this temptation, but one still fears the ruination of a good series after seeing several US created series go to waste.

THIS REVIEW IS OF THE BOX SET CONTAINING BEING HUMAN SEASONS ONE AND TWO ON DVD. I MENTION THAT AS THE AMAZON SYSTEM WILL PROBABLY LUMP IT TOGETHER WITH DIFFERENT ITEMS.

This particular cardboard box contains the first two years of the BBC Supernatural Drama series 'Being Human' on dvd, with each year on it's own in a plastic box both of which fit into the cardboard one.

The two years in question are:

Being Human: Complete Series 1 [DVD]

Being Human - Series 2 [DVD]

These two items are no different from the individual season releases in the above reviews.

So it's a good way of getting more than one year's worth if you want, but be aware that there are subsequent box sets which collect more than two of the five seasons. So you may want to go for those instead.

Format: DVD
ok, i havent got thew DVD's yet, but i watched it on bbc.
so it starts a little slow, with the first episode focusing on the current state of the vampires. the second being about the ins and outs of werewolves and the 3rd buing about the ins and out of being a ghost.
BUT once you get to episode 4, it gets interesting. as the nearby humans turn on them, mitcell is forced to turn back to the vampire way, while annie tries to figure out who killed her, and "pass on" with a huge twist and george struggling to come to terms with his condition while trying to protect mitchell from the vampires (and himself) and start a relationship with nina.
in series 2, while mitchell takes over the group of vampires, george tries to control the wolf, with terrible consiquences and annie tries to decide if she wants to live or pass on, a religious group are killing vampires, trying to "cure" being a warewolf and forcing ghosts to pass on, will all 3 of the group stay alive, and when action force mitchel to turn darker than he has ever been before, can he be saved?
it is funny, action packed and interesting with both series's having an epic finale, this is one of the greatest series's on TV, and in my opinion the BEST tv show, film , series ANYTHING to do with vampires, werewolves and ghosts
