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

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!

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.

In a nutshell this is Being Human at it's best! Toby Whithouse has created something that has captured the hearts and minds of so many people that this could be the strat of a British horror revolution.

Anyway, the character story arcs are well rounded and not a moment is lost in getting to the climax of the series. It has made me laugh, cry and scream at my tv as I've watch Annie, George, Nina and Mitchell get from one end of the series to another.

All I can say is that I can't wait for series 3 and have a feeling that it won't disappoint.

Format: DVD
With the departure of one of the series's key characters at the end of Season One, viewers may have feared that this original blend of horror and comedy would run out of ideas for Season Two. While the comedy is toned down, however, the horror is dialled up almost from the start, and the journeys of our three key characters - the ghost, the vampire and werewolf - should keep you engrossed until the strong final episode. There is some very nasty stuff in here, showing that although True Blood may seem the hipper and more sophisticated vampire series, the imagination of creator Toby Whithouse gives this British rival a definite edge.

Of course, there are some drawbacks in all this. The werewolf special effects are still weak, and the new order of the vampires is a little too familiar. Also, the central characters seem too separated at times and you may feel your interest flagging during some of the generous dialogues. Entire episodes can digress into fascinating little short stories, as when the ghost meets a medium who has lost his powers.

That said, this is a genuine cult classic in the making ... a sinister treat whose final scenes will leave you eager for season three.

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.
