Being Human (2008 -)

In BBC, Recommendation, Review, series, supernatural on 01/07/2011 at 6:49 pm

Personally I believe that making vampires, werewolves and ghosts interesting and even convincing is generally just a bit ridiculous. The good thing about Being Human is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

As a consequence, this is a pretty straightforward drama series about three interesting young friends who are desperately trying to fit into society. They all have certain big obstacles to overcome: Annie is dead (the ghost), so is Mitchell and he needs to suppress his killing and blood drinking urges (the vampire) and George has to keep himself away from others when there’s a full moon (the werewolf). Their constant struggles, inside jokes and above all their humanity make for very good entertainment.
