Product Description

All episodes from the first to fifth series of the BBC comedy drama about three very unusual flat-sharers.

They could be any group of 20-somethings sharing a house. But these friends carry their own strange and dark secrets – they each live a supernatural life as a werewolf, a vampire, or a ghost...

Though desperate to live as normal young people, their paranormal qualities cast more than just a shadow over their everyday lives. Being human is anything but easy – try holding down a career or dating when there are unwelcome intruders in your supernatural life, power struggles in the underworld and the constant threat of exposure.

Over five gripping, witty and sexy series, the housemates battle with their own demons as well as confronting terrifying forces threatening the whole of human society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 11 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Can't fault the box set but the fact that the pilot episode is not available is very disappointing, it's almost as if the first episode begins in mid air with Annie telling how they all meet up appears to have been a rushed addition to try and make it make sense, if that makes sense !

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best! 11 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Got this as a birthday present. It is the best drama series the BBC has ever produced. The exclusive episode at the end of series 5 DVD gives me hope but little expectation. Great admirer of the Beeb but nul point for cancelling this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly The Best Thing The BBC Has Ever Done 22 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
"A vampire, a ghost and a werewolf, all sharing a house," said the continuity announcer. "Predictable, lukewarm comedy relying heavily on slapstick and sight-gags", I thought, so gave it a miss.

What a first-rate idiot.

I can't recommend this highly enough. There are plenty of reasons not to like it - there's gore, it's about the supernatural, it starts off in Bristol - but the scripting is among the best I have ever encountered. These are people you can understand, believe in, love and mourn for, hate, love again and experience the whole gamut of human involvement with.

It's better than Buffy.
It's better than Angel.
It's better than Life on Mars and it's better than Ashes to Ashes.

It's short - just 37 episodes across five series - but the quality of the scripting is top of the line. No corners are ever cut, no inconsistencies allowed to creep in, no unexpected character traits tolerated. This is the story of a real - family? - of non-humans trying to scratch out their simple existences in a too-human world - failing, succeeding, failing again and ultimately ... hell, isn't that every last one of us? That's what makes it so good.

Oh, and it's better than Firefly and Dollhouse. Really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beingh Human blu ray box set 2 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this once I heard it had come to an end on BBC3 - shame on you BBC for cutting short such a brilliant show! At least I can watch all my favourite characters in glorious HD on my blu ray player. One of the best programmes ever made by the BBC.

Just brilliantly funny. No more words can describe really. Devastated that it has finished. Every character is complex and I was rooting for the werewolf on many occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just fantastic ! 25 July 2013
By DC
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Can't understand just how few people seem to have watched the series. No point in providing a plot summary. You couldn't make it up!? But somehow it's almost believable,.... dark, comic and just a great watch. You don't have to be into the whole vampire / werewolf thing to enjoy this either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Become Human 11 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I cannot rate this show highly enough! From the very human and relatable characters, to the humour that punctuates through the sometimes sombre mood! From beginning to end this has been a show that can make you laugh, cry and hide - sometimes all at the same time! You will be missed but it was one hell of a ride.

I have previously owned the first few series in HD and there is no reason to believe this box set won't maintain the same picture and audio quality. Just buy it!
