Editorial Reviews

While some young, attractive supernatural entities lead the most interesting lives, the day-to-day just isn't getting easier for the three monsters-in-twentysomethings' clothes of Being Human, as this second-season set clearly illustrates. If the first season offered an undead version of how young people make their first steps toward adulthood, the sophomore season presents a similar take on the consequences of rash decisions and difficult circumstances. Vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), having assumed control of Boston's bloodsucking population by eliminating his rival, must contend with not only a powerful vampire queen named Mother (Deena Aziz) but also her daughter, Suren (Dichen Lachman), who enlists Aidan in her power grab for the throne. Meanwhile, werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington) struggles to take responsibility for inflicting his curse on girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager), which requires a particularly terminal solution. The ghostly Sally (Meaghan Rath) is once again relegated to a second-string storyline, despite the major revelation regarding her demise at the end of the previous season; her path to resolving that situation takes a roundabout route as Sally learns to inhabit the bodies of living people while also finding her way in a community of spirits lurking at the hospital where Aidan and Josh work. The story arcs laid out for each character grow more compelling with each episode and help to keep the program out of the sudsy, heavy-handed territory that on occasion threatens to overtake the show's unique premise, as do occasional touches of humor, most notably in Sally's storyline. Whether Being Human can maintain this balancing act between horror tropes and the requirements of episodic drama in subsequent seasons remains to be seen, but its second season certainly indicates that the show's creators have the means of making it work. The four-disc Blu-ray set includes an hour-plus making-of featurette that echoes the one found on the first-season set in regard to cast and crew interviews, though fewer glimpses behind the scenes are offered; the show's panel at the 2012 Comic-Con and a brief talk with executive producers Anna Fricke and coproducer Jeremy Carver are mostly for diehard fans. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars AMERICAN BUYERS: BEWARE! Compatibility issues! June 22, 2010
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars We all lead long and appalling lives August 2, 2010
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.

Having watched every season of the British hit "Being Human," I was a bit wary of SyFy's American reinterpretation. While I'm sure that I will anger the many avid fans of the original show, I didn't fully appreciate its charms until it progressed into later seasons and got darker and more complex. In Season One of the American version, I had a similar reaction. Once again, I found myself thinking that this was a good show with the potential to grow into something far richer and more rewarding. The British version started as an enjoyment and turned into great television and I thought that the U.S. version had the same opportunity. And in Season Two's thirteen new episodes, I really enjoyed the deepening seriousness of the story's plot threads.

For those new to the concept of "Being Human," it is perhaps one of the most unique and (let's admit it) most ridiculous ones on TV. In its outrageousness, however, it is completely irresistible! What if a ghost, a werewolf, and a vampire shared living quarters as best mates? You think the trials of tribulations of being young and attractive in the big city makes for great drama, try adding this supernatural component for a bit of fun. But where there was much humor and lightness in introductory episodes, Season Two is looking a whole lot bleaker.

Sam Witwer, as the vampire, must deal with the repercussions of last season's dramatic decisions. He is embroiled with a former flame, clan politics, and a new penchant for blood-letting. You get a lot more back story, a lot more depth, and Witwer has an intensity perfectly suited to the role of a tortured blood sucker. Sam Huntington (our resident werewolf), who spent much of Season One as comic relief, also has richer material to sink his teeth into.
