Being Human is one of my favorite shows, and I just love it. It
is a British show about a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost, who all share an
apartment. It sounds like a bad joke, but it's actually a very good show that is
more or less very serious. These are just people trying to live a normal life,
even though they are different. There are many issues addressed, such as
prejudice. There are other characters, of course, that are also the same kind of
creatures, and they are not all nice people.
This is the second season, and nothing is dull or predictable about it. It
carries on very naturally but surprisingly from the first season. That's why I
love it - it is always shocking and makes me want to see what will happen next
with these very-likable "monsters". You will not be disappointed!
The DVD set comes with a lot of special features. One is all about the blood
they use on the show. Another is about the cool underground caves they used in
Bristol. Another is about George being a werewolf and the makeup behind it.
Another is about how they showed the sixties flashbacks, how they did the sets,
the costumes, hair, etc. The actors and crew comment throughout each feature.
Another special is about the train scene, and there are also easter eggs and
special commentary. It's quite a lot for any set!
If you love horror, or just very good TV, you will love this show, and this DVD.
It is the best of all the vampire shows out there (as much as I love
Supernatural, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries).
