Being Human - BBC Three

What a fantastic series, Being Human has turned out to be! I love dark humour and this show is bursting with it. If you have never seen it and wonder what it's all about, I can tell you it's like a British version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer only it isn't just vampires that are in it. The show revolves around three young people sharing a house in Bristol; a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost. I know it sounds ridiculous especially if you don't like that sort of stuff (particularly the horror genre) but believe me it's a very well made series with wonderful actors and brilliant writing. There is never a dull moment. It's very funny and very entertaining. It has the perfect blend of drama and humour. There's the vampire, Mitchell who is trying to give up blood; loveable but neurotic George the werewolf; and Annie the confused, insecure ghost. And then there are the villains - they are as nasty and evil as you can get. The series is rather like a twisted and dark pantomime. Tonight's episode was the best yet. I think the characters are so funny and yet so poignant too as they struggle with each new predicament they get into. I have a feeling this series will soon become a cult hit - if it isn't one already. BBC - Being Human Homepage Being Human - wikipedia page

  5. I should think the BBC would like to expand the audience even more so I bet it will eventually be shown on BBC1 or BBC2.
