Product Description

Being Human returns for a gripping second series as vampire Mitchell (Aidan Turner), werewolf George (Russell Tovey), and ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow) encounter new enemies in their fight to lead something close to normal lives. It’s tough being supernatural. Mitchell’s romance with a feisty doctor is disrupted by a vampire community in disarray. George’s relationship with a new girlfriend is undermined by an uncontrollable twist in his werewolf existence. Annie has a brutal reminder that life as a spirit is full of challenges. All three are threatened by CenSSA, a religious organization committed to the destruction or conversion of supernatural freaks, operated by the mysterious Professor Jaggat and the sinister, cold-hearted Kemp. Just when your inner demons might be conquered, it’s the outer demons who won’t go away.

From Amazon.co.uk

Fans will pounce on the second season of Being Human, the beloved series about a trio of supernatural beings--a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost--who just want to lead normal lives. In the first episode, George (the lycanthrope, played by Russell Tovey) is trying to make his relationship with Nina (Sinead Keenan) work, only he doesn't know that he's passed his curse on to her; rakishly handsome Mitchell (the bloodsucker, Adrian Turner) meets a new doctor at the hospital and feels an immediate attraction; and ever-chipper Annie (the specter, Lenora Crichlow) sets out to get a job. Unfortunately for them, a gaunt fanatic named Kemp wants to destroy them and all their kind. The series seeks to juggle domestic story lines about relationships and family with grand conspiracies and bloody murders. The result never meshes--in one scene, Mitchell conspires with a police chief to cover up vampire murders, and in another he, George, and Annie are flopped on the couch, chatting like college freshmen about having sex. Either sequence could be enjoyable, but trying to slam them together undercuts both. It doesn't help that the characters squeal and whine like sullen teenagers half the t40ime. Fortunately, the cast manages to rise above the writing to exude genuine charm and the production values are strong--the designers clearly relish every opportunity for gruesomeness. Being Human: Season Two has only a small handful of extras, but there are eight episodes instead of the first season's six. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
Life -- and occasionally undeath -- just keep getting more complicated for the three supernatural roommates of "Being Human." The second season is a much darker affair than the one before it, and while there are occasional patches of lighthearted fun ("Clowns... so many... clowns!"), the real focus here is on the dangers both to AND from the supernatural world.

About a month after Herrick's death, things have gotten complex for everybody. Annie has decided to get a job at the local pub, leading her to meet a man who is being manipulated by the spirits of the dead. George's strained relationship with Nina takes a new turn when it's discovered that he accidentally infected her. And with Herrick gone, Mitchell is struggling to keep the vampires from being discovered -- and may have to do some morally repulsive things to succeed.

Along the way, they have to deal with Annie's matchmaking efforts, vampire attacks, Mitchell's mentor falling off the wagon, George's efforts to quell his lycanthropy (and how THAT backfires), a senseless psychic, and Mitchell falling for a pretty doctor.

Unfortunately, the little gang has become an object of interest to the mysterious Kemp and his organization, who are determined to wipe out the supernatural population ("Beasts should be kept in cages"). And though the gang are not aware of them, Kemp's group is drawing closer and uncovering more and more of their secrets, until disaster strikes.

The first season of "Being Human" was a pretty even mix of horror, comedy and drama, but the second season is a lot darker and more painful.

Forget the negative rubbish in previous reviews, this series will go on to become BBC 3's finest product and become even more successful than Gavin & Stacey! Some reviewers compare Being Human to absolute garbage such as Blood Ties, True Blood and Vampire Diaries! This series is a million light years ahead of that lot!. The difference is in the writing. Being Human writing is intelligent. The main characters are now fully developed. The new characters in each episode bring out more from the main characters.

Herricks death at the end of Series 1 allowed the introduction of Ivan and Daisey in Series 2, a masterstroke. The added furtherence and introduction of (Reverend) Kemp and Professor Jaggart provided intriging conflictions between religion and science. The acting, production and direction in Series 2 surpassed the first series. And the twist at the end of Series 2 opens up limitless possibilities for Series 3.

Buy and enjoy!

And get your teeth into this fantastic series!

Format: DVD
Second season of the BBC show Being Human comes to dvd. With all eight one hour long episodes in a single box, spread over three dvd's.

The show is about a Werewolf, a Vampire, and a ghost, all living in a house in Bristol and trying to lead normal lives.

The start of the season isn't really a great jumping on point, as it does have a fair bit of back story from the first season, so new viewers should start with that instead.

If you've seen it, read on.

Those who saw this season on original broadcast may wish to be aware that some of the original music has been altered for dvd due to 'contractural reasons.' Not having seen it at the time I can't say what the alterations are, but some sources do say most of it is the same.

Following the end of season one, new problems await the three main characters as they continue to try and live their lives. George has romance with Nina to keep him going. But the latter has a lot of adjustment to do.

Now that Annie hasn't moved on to the next life when she should have, what will she do next? And what will happen as a result of her still being on Earth?

Mitchell finds romance as well, with a lady Doctor. But with the resulting power vacuum in the Vampire ranks following the end of season one, something must be done to keep the status quo going.

Then there's the mysterious man glimpsed in the last scene of season one, who took an interest in Annie and her two friends. He might have an agenda of his own...

Following on from the format of the first season, this does what that did with character story arcs that span the course of the season. And some storylines complete in a single episode.

Format: DVD
Vampire TV shows have been very en vogue in the last few years, with US programmes like True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and Blood Ties doing the rounds. But Being Human was different. It was low-key and gritty; it didn't have the flashy special effects or multi-million dollar budgets of these American shows. It was primarily a character drama about extraordinary people trying to live ordinary lives. And it was brilliant.

Series 2 picks up just a matter of weeks after the close of the first series. George and Nina are still together after the dramatic events at the end of the first series, although their relationship is becoming increasingly strained and George is acting more and more aggressively and wolf-like (remember Tully?). Nina is trying to remain distant to him while she gets her head around what has happened, and keep secret from George that mid-transformation he scratched her too.

Things are askew for the vampire factions in Bristol, now disparate and lawless without their leader Herrick. Mitchell realises that they need a strong leader and structure else they will run amok and destroy all order and the uneasy truce with the authorities, all the while trying to curb his bloodlust and convince others to do the same. A potential love interest is introduced in Lucy, a lonely doctor who Mitchell befriends and grows increasingly close to over the series.
