Editorial Reviews

Hal, Tom and Alex are three housemates with some serious issues on their hands, and they’re not just about household chores. Hal (Damien Molony) is a 500 year-old vampire, Tom (Michael Socha) is a hardened werewolf and Alex (Kate Bracken) has recently had the misfortune of becoming a ghost. But threat lurks around every corner. There is the volatile and deluded Crumb (Colin Hoult) – a newly recruited vampire, and the sinister Mr Rook (Steven Robertson) – head of a secret government department. With bills to be paid, our heroes take jobs in Barry’s kitschest hotel, but alongside the flock wallpaper and the cocktail umbrellas dwells an evil greater than anything faced before. On the face of it, Captain Hatch (Phil Davis) is just another foul-mouthed decrepit old man but he hides a dark secret that threatens not only our heroes’ friendships but the entire world.

Note that these are my thoughts on season five itself since I've already seen it. The DVD has not been released at the time of this writing, so I can't comment on the DVD extras.

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.

This show continues to amaze and evolve. The writing is stellar as always, the actors stunning! I loved the story and really loved the characters. I hate to see this series end...but if it had to end...it couldn't have been done better! Hats off to all involved!

After five supernatural seasons, the British hit "Being Human" concludes its run in dramatic fashion. It doesn't seem that long ago that we were introduced to a trio of best friends kicking it with Mitchell (Aiden Turner), George (Russell Tovey), and Annie (Lenora Crichlow). Having said our tearful goodbyes to all of the principles over the past few season (Crichlow was the last to part at the end of Season Four), the final season appears decidedly different in every regard except one. The fundamental premise of having a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost chasing normalcy and acceptance in the modern world is still a terrifically engaging idea. Through the years, the show has had lightness and humor as well as brutality and tragedy. In fact, that's perhaps its most successful accomplishment. The program could be terribly silly and fun at times, but gut wrenching and disturbing at others. This blend of moods is hard to achieve effectively, but "Being Human" has succeeded as a comedy, a drama, and a thriller. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end.

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.

Loved the entire series. I watched them unfold on SciFi until the end of season 4. I couldn't imagine a more perfect ending. After watching all of Being Human US and enjoying the ending so very much, but made me sad too because it was the end of another wonderful series, I decided I needed to watch the entire UK series again and tack on season 5 because I was curious how it ended. The first few episodes I wasn't so sure I would like it. I did like Tom, but Hal and Alex were taking their own sweet time warming up. When Hal killed the werewolf in Pie & Prejudice I decided he was not all sissyboy and I could get to like him. I loved the whole hotel theme and by the last show, I was hooked, savoring the last bit and wishing for more, but pleased that season 5 held it's own and wasn't lame final season of an otherwise successful series. Season 5 could conceivably have been its own miniseries and done well. The only things it had in common with the previous 4 seasons was the title, the town/home, and a ghost/wolf/vamp combo. All in all Well done.

Caught all of the first four seasons on BBC America when they came out and had the 5th season dvr'd and never got around to watching because I wasn't sure I was going to like "Being Human 2.0", Saw it on Amazon and decided to watch a couple of years after it came out and it was not as bad I thought it was going to be. Binged watch the whole series in a day and thought that it had a satisfying conclusion to the series (can't really talk about the ending without spoilers!). Still prefer the original cast and the earlier seasons, but this one was light years better than the American Syfy version that I only made it through a few episodes.
If you were avoiding the final season and considering the fourth season the "last" one, give this a try.
