Being Human.

Posted by Daltons chin dimple on Friday, August 28, 2009

I've been watching this series since they upgraded it from BBC Three to BBC1 and have found it really enjoyable.

It's about a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost who end up as roomates and each, obviously, has particular issues.

The werewolf hates what he is and resents that it has destroyed his life. When his, as they put it, "time of the month" comes along he tries to get himself into situations and places that stop him from hurting people. He's played by Russell Tovey who very nearly became the new Doctor Who.

The vampire is on the wagon, sworn off killing people to feed. However this has brought him into direct conflict with other vampires, including some that he made before he changed his ways, that threatens all of them and their place in the world.

Last is the girl, who haunts their apartment as she died in an accident there and they can see her because they are also cursed / undead. To complicate matters, their landlord is her ex, who is also the one who found her body in the apartment.

It's surprisingly gory yet despite the hokey premise I was really impressed with it.

See if you can find the first episode online.

Forgot to mention, it is also very funny with a dry sense of humour, despite not being a comedy.

I'm enjoying it so far. The cold open makes it seem like it will lean more toward drama, but then the title card comes, and it lightens up.

That's exactly why it is so hard to place. There is a comedy moment, then a flashback to the werewolf creation scene that is almost identical to American Werewolf but with far more dessicated bodies than you would usually expect from 10pm on a terrestrial TV channel. Confusing, amusing, yet entertaining.

yes thanks Jakester, I put up a thread for this in the television section. Good series... the "pilot" has different actors playing the ghost and the vampire.. i did not like the original actors and was glad they retooled the show. (also the original pilot is on youtube, its VERY dark, unlike the show which is somewhat lighthearted)

Finished the series. Liked it. Look forward to the next series.

Haven't seen the pilot, yet, but I'll get around to it.

Just watched the pilot. I didn't hate it, but I prefer the direction the show went for the series, proper.

The vampire reminded me of Mystery, the guy Neil Strauss made famous with The Game.

The ghost wasn't bad, but her South Yorkshire/Barnsley accent (was it put on? I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best with non-US English accents, but it seemed to fade in and out to me) put me off a bit. Apologies to anyone out there reading this who might have a similar accent. I'm sure I'd get used to it if I got to know you.

Agreed on all counts, Goiter. Also, I gathered that the creators felt that the vampires felt a little too much liked they lived in Blade's universe, and they didn't want that.

For those of you who liked this, Season 2 kicked off here about 3 weeks ago. I had a bit of a mini-marathon catching up on all the episodes on my Sky+ box so far.

Much darker. Less humour and plenty happening from the start. It gets better and better.

-The consequences of the season finale last year are revealed.
-Scary religious types whose mission it is to rid the world of the abominations.
-Details of vampiric penetration into key positions in society.
-More on the vampire social structure, including punishments for transgression.
-Something from the 'other side' that is mighty pissed off at Annie for not being properly dead.

It's all good. Thoroughly enjoyed the episodes I have seen so far.

I liked the slow pan full frontal bit. That was nice.

This season has been pretty damn awesome, yeah.

-I like how Mitchell tried to take down the system and is now discovering that he's become
its de facto leader.
-Tourettes George was AWESOME!
-I'm keen to see who runs the other side of the door.
-Old religious dude is scary.
-Blood-drinkers anonymous is kind of lame.

Erm.... wasn't the slow pan, full frontal of... like... a corpse??!?!?!?!

Have you seen who 'The Professor' is yet?

So, she was still HOT!

I'm caught up, so I know who The Professor is, yes. It's somewhat amusing how we'd been led to believe that "The Professor" was in charge, but really, she's almost a hired hand. Creepy Religious Dude is creepy. And old. And I don't like him very much. He's too righteous. I don't like righteous pricks. Primarily because they're pricks. And righteous. I'm just padding here. Can you tell?
