Although I thought Season 4 was a bit rough (understandably, considering it was a character transition period), Season 5 definitely more than makes up for it.
Season five of Being Human recaptures the wonderful balance of humor and drama of season one, with a slight difference-- while Mitchell, George, and Annie seemed to have their own separate storylines that eventually meshed together, Hal, Tom, and Alex's stories are more intertwined from the start. This seems trivial until you see how close friends Hal, Tom, and Alex are in comparison with Mitchell, George, and Annie. Both groups are friends living together, but new trio seem inseparable compared to the original. They're all in it together-- Hal and his struggle with bloodlust and readjusting after 55 years of isolation from the outside world, Tom by his side also trying to live a 'normal' life having been raised as a nomadic, vampire-hunting werewolf, and Alex, who is still trying to come to grips with life as a ghost after her death (which Hal is tangentially related to). In spite of each character's unique condition, their day-to-day struggles still seem familiar with our own.
This season is the first and, unfortunately, only season in which we see these three characters together on their own, with no 'baggage' (characters from episodes before and during the cast transition). It's a pity the show was axed to make room for other experimental shows on BBC 3, since the chemistry between the new trio is phenomenal and they still have a lot of potential with their stories.Read more ›
The current trio of housemates are now werewolf Tom (Michael Socha), vampire Hal (Damien Molony), and ghost Alex (Kate Bracken). I've been a big fan of Socha since he first appeared as a guest star. I was thrilled when he was promoted to series regular in Season Three although filling Tovey's shoes was nearly impossible. The key was that he didn't even try, he just did something completely different. It's funny to now see him as the veteran in the cast! Both Molony and Bracken made their initial appearances in Season Four. Molony has a quirky presence that can be either funny or scary and Bracken provides the sass. The roommates face some changes from the end of last season.Read more ›
If you were avoiding the final season and considering the fourth season the "last" one, give this a try.
