BEING HUMAN is a bizarre, supernatural sitcom from the BBC that revolves around the concept of two young men--Mitchell and George--sharing a flat. While this seems like a tried and tested formula for television the twist is that Mitchell (Aidan Turner - THE TUDORS) is a vampire and George (Russell Tovey - LITTLE DORRIT, THE HISTORY BOYS) is a werewolf. Complicating matters further is pair's newfound home is haunted by the ghost of Annie (Lenora Crichlow - SUGAR RUSH). Includes all the episodes from the show's third series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The British Buffy? 17 Mar 2011
A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost share a flat. Sounds like the opening line to a bad joke doesn't it? And as a result this did put me off Being Human. However after hearing nothing but good things about this series i decided to give it a try and it's safe to say i am now completely and utterly hooked. A brilliantly acted, written and made series, not a bad episode in this at all, the cast are all excellent, we have a vampire in torment over his past which to be honest is becoming a cliche now but Aidan Turner is excellent as tormented vampire Mitchell and the rest of the cast are all equally good too. Twists and turns throughout which makes Being Human one of the best British shows in years and the finale is simply superb. There is an American remake which i am curious to watch but as much of a fan of American tv as i am, it'll have to be pretty damn good to beat this. Being Human is i suppose you could say a British Buffy as it does have elements of that classic show's humour and writing. If you're already a fan you'll love it and if like me you're a newcomer i think you'll be hooked if you like quality drama which is what this show is. Roll on season 4!

I love the UK version of Being Human and I must admit to being mystified as to why the Americans decided to make their own version of the show (but that's another story). Like Season 2, there are only eight episodes in Season 3 of Being Human, but as with all three seasons, the creators manage to pack a whole lot into those episodes. We watched Season 1 as a "marathon", with loads of episodes back-to-back, but for Seasons 2 and 3 as things picked up in the story lines and got a whole lot more intense, we found we could only watch one or two episodes at a time because they were so intense and fraught that we needed breathers in between. By Season 3 things have taken some slightly mystifying twists. For example, they're now living in a former B&B in Wales, and not just anywhere in Wales, but at Barry Island, which I just can't think of without thinking about the BBC series Gavin and Stacey. To be honest this relocation was a little distracting and made me wonder if they'd somehow been filming Gavin and Stacey at the same time or had an old crew set up there that made it easier to be in Barry. Plus, the actor who plays Stacey's mum, Gwen, turns up as a very "special" (you'll see for yourself) vampire character, who just happens to live in Barry. I think one of the downsides of the series for me was the appearance of Robson Green as a new character. Much as I like Robson Green as an actor, part of the charm of the show is that the characters are (to me, anyway) relative unknowns, so they can really take on their characters well, but Robson Green is such a big name that I find his presence distracting. Not that he's bad in the role, but hopefully you see what I mean. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars (There's something wrong with) Human Nature 2 Mar 2011
After really enjoying the first two series' of Being Human I was excited to hear that a third was due to be broadcast on BBC3. This then is the aforementioned series; noticeably darker then the (admittedly pretty dark) previous series and significantly more adult than the first, the third series opens where the second left off - Annie imprisoned in some kind of nether world between Heaven and Hell and awaiting her ultimate fate.
This series sees the return (albeit briefly in at least one case) of several key characters from Series One, while relations in the new house are changing rapidly.
Robson Green appears in this series in an unusual role, whilst Mitchell gains a fanboy and Nina has potentially devastating news for George.
Still billed as a 'Horror/Comedy', the show is now more like straight horror with quirky characters and the odd spot of (extremely) black comedy. The characters undergo various traumas in this third series, although the focus is very much on Mitchell as he attempts to atone for the Box Tunnel Massacre at the climax of the previous series.
The series ends on something of a cliffhanger and it will be interesting to see where a fourth series will go after the devastating events that conclude this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolf shaped bullet 25 Aug 2011
The supernatural gang has left Bristol behind, but leaving the past behind is a little harder.

And "Being Human Season 3" is all about the bloody, terrifying past catching up to the main characters, whether it's an amnesiac vampire or a mass murder on a subway. The writers manage to throw some interesting curveballs into the characters' lives, but Aidan Turner's tormented vampire is the best part of it all.

Nina, George and Mitchell have purchased a small Welsh B&B as their new home, and everything seems potentially perfect... except Annie is trapped in purgatory, and she's headed for hell. Desperate to save her, Mitchell follows a newly-dead spirit into purgatory, where he is faced with his bloodiest sins -- and a prophecy that a "werewolf-shaped bullet" will kill him.

So the reunited gang continues trying to have a normal life, grappling with "normal" problems and supernatural ones, including a vampiric teenager, a tragic zombie, cage-fights, evil vampire suburbanites, and a pair of werewolves living in the woods. But things take a horrifying turn when George finds that Herrick has somehow come back to life -- and though he doesn't seem to remember who he is/was, he hasn't lost his evil. And after Herrick causes another horrifying incident, Mitchell's desperation will lead to another tragedy...

"Being Human Season Three" might as well be called the "Mitchell Season," because Aidan Turner really steals the show: Mitchell is tormented by the Box Tunnel Massacre, his fear of being caught, and his ever-growing terror of his impending death. Turner is absolutely sublime, slowly ramping up Mitchell's fear, desperation and erraticism as the season goes on, until it seems like the vampire is about to crack.
