Product Description

Leading everyday lives is harder than it looks for three twenty-something supernatural roommates vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer),ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) and werewolf Josh(Sam Huntington). Together, they share the creature comforts of a Boston brownstone while struggling to resist the temptations of their true natures and keep their secrets hidden from the outside world. Bonus Features: Season 2 Making-of Featurette, Behind-the-Scenes Interview, Being Human at San Diego Comic-Con 2012.

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

I am definitely a fan of this show! I can't wait for season 3 to come out on TV. The synopsis of the show might seems a little far fetched or something of disinterest, but trust me...it's so much more than the description. The characters develop more in each episode and truly connect with their "human" and non-human existence.

LOVE IT!

I really enjoyed season 2. We got to know the characters & a little about their back stories in season 1. Season 2 gives an even deeper look into their past & how it shapes their present & future. I enjoy all the main characters. This show gives us all a closer look into what it truly takes to be a human being in this world. It shows us it is no easy job no matter who or what we are & each of us have to deal with our own issues, but we are all looking for someone to understand. Great show!!

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.

This season shows the trio dealing with the repercussions from last season. Sally's missed her door and finds she is growing stronger, Josh's girlfriend Nora has been (unknowingly) scratched by him and inherits his curse, and Aidan is leader of the Boston clan after killing Bishop. The cast seem to have gotten more comfortable and give more great performances, and the guest actors manage to hold their own too. The first season was based off the original series from the UK version of Being Human, but this season has little in common with the second series.

Anyway, this show continues to grip your attention with its complex characters and dramatic stories. If you enjoyed the first season then I have little doubt you'll enjoy this one even more.

This is as good as the UK version. Similar in some way, with different story lines. I am looking forward to season 2.
