I loved the 'Being Human' series on television and bought the DVD with great glee. And...it's really good. I'll never go to Bristol without a make-up mirror and a stun gun in my handbag.
But...where did the beginning go..?
When I got home and there was the parcel, I ripped it open, shoved the DVD into the slot...and then, after a couple of minutes, I took it out again and tried the other disc. Nope. On both discs, people could see Annie. Not all people but...
I admit I am confused. I watched the first pilot, the one with another cast. I think I watched a second pilot, same script, this cast, where the boys moved in to the house and could see Annie but no one else could, where Mitchell's dilemma was introduced to me and I became aware... gradually... that things in George's life were more complicated than he would wish.
But the 'first episode' of the DVD has Seth biting influential patients in the hospital, George doing his thing in the basement and Annie greeting pizza delivery boys.
Once I got over my outrage, I loved it. It's been a good investment. I've watched it often, in part or in whole. The scripts are great - oh, the Vin Diesel fan!! - the acting is great...
But where's the start??
Please. Make a DVD of the pilot. Then I can buy it, run it before I watch the series and I'll go away and not bother you again. If you need me in the meantime, I'll be the one with the garlic jewellery.
