Review: Being Human

Contrary to what you might believe from its title, the main characters in Being Human are a vampire, a ghost and a werewolf. Their desire to make part of the society and live a normal life makes the series tackle such topics as communication, acceptance, love; ultimately, everything that makes us human. The central characters are Mitchell (Aidan Turner), a 100 years old vampire, and George (Russell Tovey), a young werewolf struggling to accept his new condition; after having been on a vacation in the mountains, George is scratched by such a supernatural creature and becomes one himself. In order to better integrate into society, Mitchell and George take jobs at a hospital in their town and move into a rented apartment. In their new apartment, they meet Annie (Lenora Crichlow), the ghost of the former owner.

Makeup and special effects are not impressive in this series, but there is horror, and there is humor, so it's fun to watch. Being Human is more about smart lines, sarcasm, and the characters desperately trying to cope with their condition and also to keep it a secret. Being Human manages to be scary at times and it's also very funny how the three room mates try to understand and live with each other.

Verdict:

Being Human is no True Blood but it is one of the supernatural series that is worth watching. If you are looking for something more than a vampire show, and would like to see character development, then this is a series for you. Just don't expect much from the special effects but more human interaction.
