Starts brilliantly but looses its way,

This review is from: Being Human - Series 1-4 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I ordered this box set as it had been suggested that the series might be something that I might like. Given an urgent need to find exciting, interesting viewing for the Christmas period. I thought I would give this a go. The premise; a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost get a flat together sounds like the beginning of a joke but at least in the first 2 series the jokes are interspersed with really bleak, black comedic moments.
Well written and compelling in the first instance, as the second series reaches its end, the storyline falters as characters show unexpected character changes, some of the plotlines seem to show a real potential for the wheels to come off entirely.
Character and location changes prove a challenge to the continuity, perhaps this would not be so evident if watching on a week by week basis, but watching a couple of episodes a day over Christmas seemed to highten the impression of a slightly cut and paste approach to plot development.
All in all, it was a good watch, despite my gripes and I'm happy that the set provided good entertainment value for money
