Customer Reviews

I really enjoyed all the series, very excited kept you watching and wanting to see the next episode.
R. HANNA
It's a combination of things: fine acting, snappy and believable dialogue, good scripting, an attractive and durable story line, superlative casting.
Marie Prudence Gagne
The season arc is enjoyable and the overall pacing of this season is much better compared to season 3 or season 4.

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.

Didn't stand up to the first 3 seasons. The werewolf was the only character that I really cared for. The others were just copycats of the originals.

Ignoring the obvious new cast to original cast comparisons, the biggest problem with the fifth series is that it never truly lets them get back to the actual "exploring humanity" part that made the first few series (seasons) so great.

I have been waiting for this show to come to the US. I am sad that the series is ending. I think Being Human is just awesome!

I cannot recommend this series enough. It takes a premise that seems almost Munster-ish in tone and makes it a serious, moving commentary on the best and worst aspects of humanity. Bravo :)

I didn't think I could ever get as wrapped up or care as much about the newer characters after the first trio left the show, but with this season, it's happening. Well-written, well-acted, just delightful.
