I was certain that when Mitchell was killed at the end of season 3 that the show would never be the same. However, George was my favorite character and he would be there with Annie and Nina.

When I realized that George and Nina would not survive past the first episode of season 4, I was very upset. But I kept watching because Annie was still there. She is a wonderful character.

I soon realized that the show is so well written and acted that new characters can come on be just as wonderful as the previous characters. Such is the case in season 4.

I soon fell in love with the new werewolf and vampire characters and enjoyed them as much as Mitchell and George.

All previous seasons are fantastic and season 4 is no exception. Buy or watch season 4 without any hesitation. It is worth your time and money.

As another reviewer said, don't compare it to the US version. The British version is superior in every way.

Thank you.

Just streamed this in because i missed the BBC-A broadcast and i have to say that Instant video has gotten loads better since Season 3. The broadcast was continual and there were no issues, which was a nice.

Season 4 of Being Human picks up where Season 3 left everything, with Mitchell dead and the roommate's in a spiral. It is not the only thing to have happened, however, and the happenings are huge. By the end of this episode the show will have gone through an enormous change and it leaves a lot of questions up in the air. I do not want to ruin any of that, because it kind of shocked me just how much they were willing to rearrange things. It also made for quite the show.

Switching to scenes from 2037, there is a storyline being developed here that deals with George and Nina's baby, the War Child, and a prophecy that vampires have on it. I liked that idea, and the way the show was presented made me really wonder what was happening. honestly, I was afraid this would be a "getting over Mitchell" episode but it was far from that. It was a "changing everything forever" kind of show that makes me think that maybe the show is going out and going with a bang.

I really liked the fact that they put some human in here, too, keeping some parts very serious and some parts light. The beginning kind of sits a tone there, contrasting the protective George and the seriousness in the home. There is also the introduction of some new faces, lots of them, and a new trinity of roomies that may be a new focal point. Combine that with a lot of "go" and you have the episode.

I'm really looking forward to the show this season - 5/5

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Being Human from the UK. It has now been canceled without reason or comment other than the millions of fans out here. The news is that it was meant to go after 5 seasons but no one is believing that "rubbish" as they say. I will so miss these characters and am reminded about the original ones that started out this epic show. Of course, I will say that the US version is pretty darn good and that is unusual and terrific at the same time. US is on Season 3 on Syfy. Check it out and watch all 5 seasons of the UK and 3 seasons and hopefully counting of the US versions of BEING HUMAN!

The American show is very good but this is a cut above. I've never seen a show that kills off the hero's and then gets better. The Actors are great but the writers are the difference makers. Can't wait for the next season.

I was hooked on "Being Human" (BBS Version) with the first episode of Season one. Seasons 2-3 continued to hold my attention. However, Season 4 with the killing off of two of the three main characters and replacing them with much weaker versions was disappointing. The writers instead of trying to create the depth of the two former main characters, instead went for one episode story lines, gory scenes and a few attempts at humor. PLEASE BRING BACK MITCHELL.

It is weird to get invested in characters and then have them disappear. I liked the story, it's just not as good as seasons 1-3

Okay, I was very uncertain about continuing this series after finding out that not only did the show lose Mitchell's character, but George and Nina too! However, because I have yet to see any bad acting whatsoever in this series and I've become seriously hooked on its particular weird cross of Supernatural meets Monty Python I decided to stick with Season 4. And I'm very glad that I did. Both the new actors who bring the characters Hal and Tom to the show bring their characters to life and continue to charm me. I don't really think of them as replacements for the ones who've gone, but simply new friends in their own right. And of course Annie is lovely and sweet, but shows us in this episode that she isn't quite the pushover that she used to be. The first few episodes of the season were a bit shaky for me with so many new people coming onto the scene, but this episode is the one where the new set of friends finally, really click. You get the sense that Annie has once again found a home with her new vampire and werewolf friends and the three are united in their efforts to keep a young baby safe from other supernatural forces that want her dead. Sorry, not giving anything away. If you want to know what I'm talking about you have to watch the show.

Without giving anything away I'd say if you had been shunning Season 4, because you can't reach for the remote without sobbing then it's time to dry those tears and keep watching. Because the one thing this show isn't ever going to be is dull and boring.
