Editorial Reviews

Being Human returns for a gripping second season as vampire Mitchell (Aidan Turner), werewolf George (Russell Tovey), and ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow) encounter new enemies in their fight to lead something close to normal lives. It’s tough being supernatural. Mitchell’s romance with a feisty doctor is disrupted by a vampire community in disarray. George’s relationship with a new girlfriend is undermined by an uncontrollable twist in his werewolf existence. Annie has a brutal reminder that life as a spirit is full of challenges. All three are threatened by CenSSA, a religious organization committed to the destruction or conversion of supernatural freaks, operated by the mysterious Professor Jaggat and the sinister, cold-hearted Kemp. Just when your inner demons might be conquered, it’s the outer demons who won’t go away.

Customer Reviews

The characters are engaging and as realistic as can be expected, given the genre.
steven waldman
Despite being one of the many many fiction works about vampires and werewolves these days, "Being Human" has the ability not to become just another one.
Maricela Chavez

Format: Blu-ray
American buyers should be aware that this BluRay title is encoded at a 50hz refresh rate, which is INCOMPATIBLE with most American BluRay players and TV sets (yes, the PS3 is one of the players these won't work on).

You have to have one of the following two setups to play this (or any other) 1080/50hz disc:

1. a player that can output 50hz discs at their native 50hz rate, PLUS a TV that can accept a 50hz 1080i input signal
2. a player that can convert the 50hz refresh to the 60hz standard preferred by American sets. This is similar to a PAL-to-NTSC standards conversion

VERY FEW American players/HDTVs can cope with 50hz discs. The Oppo players (BDP-80 and BDP-83) are among the few that can both output 50hz native AND convert it to 60hz, depending on your needs.

MOST British television shows these days are shot in 1080/50hz, because the Eurpoean HDTV standard is still on the same 50hz refresh rate that the old PAL standard was on. Many (but not all) British BluRays are encoded at that same 50hz rate to keep the signal pure/as intended, although some are converted to 60hz to appeal to the import/export market, so it's always best to do your research on these things!

UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE! There will be a Region-A (American-compatible) release of this happening September 21st, so if you can wait a couple months, those of you without the 50hz technology will be able to finally see the episodes without possibly importing the British set which likely won't work on your equipment.

Format: DVD
Life -- and occasionally undeath -- just keep getting more complicated for the three supernatural roommates of "Being Human." The second season is a much darker affair than the one before it, and while there are occasional patches of lighthearted fun ("Clowns... so many... clowns!"), the real focus here is on the dangers both to AND from the supernatural world.

About a month after Herrick's death, things have gotten complex for everybody. Annie has decided to get a job at the local pub, leading her to meet a man who is being manipulated by the spirits of the dead. George's strained relationship with Nina takes a new turn when it's discovered that he accidentally infected her. And with Herrick gone, Mitchell is struggling to keep the vampires from being discovered -- and may have to do some morally repulsive things to succeed.

Along the way, they have to deal with Annie's matchmaking efforts, vampire attacks, Mitchell's mentor falling off the wagon, George's efforts to quell his lycanthropy (and how THAT backfires), a senseless psychic, and Mitchell falling for a pretty doctor.

Unfortunately, the little gang has become an object of interest to the mysterious Kemp and his organization, who are determined to wipe out the supernatural population ("Beasts should be kept in cages"). And though the gang are not aware of them, Kemp's group is drawing closer and uncovering more and more of their secrets, until disaster strikes.

The first season of "Being Human" was a pretty even mix of horror, comedy and drama, but the second season is a lot darker and more painful.

Format: DVD
In the wake of the cataclysm that ended the prior season, our werewolf, vampire, and ghost fight to maintain their shaky humanity. But George has infected his girlfriend Nina with the werewolf curse. Mitchell finds himself the unwilling leader of Bristol's volatile vampire tribe. And Annie must accept that, though she's still dead, everyone can see and hear her. Too bad a vengeful preacher won't leave them be.

The first several episodes take a different tack than last season, more of a regular episodic drama, as the characters struggle to find level footing in their newly transformed lives. Relationships take center stage: how can you love someone alive when you're dead? How can you love someone when your shared rage could kill you both? How closely do romance and violence dwell in the human heart?

Several near-perfect scenes stick with me: dozens of hungry vampires singing Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" couldn't be more spot-on. When George seeks a way to cage his wolf, he gets mistaken for an S&M practitioner, opening doors for gentle but uproarious comedy. If we read these episodes as metaphors for common human experience, TV hasn't shown such insightful scenes in many a long, quiet year.

Later episodes shift to a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" tone, as though the creative team thought their audience demanded a catastrophic fantasy conclusion. When two vampires bare fangs and hiss at each other like angry kittens, I feel laughter, not terror. Scenes of characters chasing each other up and down dim corridors get tedious. And the talky denouement lingers so long that I got bored waiting for it to resolve.

But on the whole, this is a worthy follow-up to the first season's harrowing epic.
