This review is from: Being Human (U.K.) Season 4 (Amazon Instant Video)
The acting is still great so it really isn't fair to give a low review plus I think the writing for this show has always been so artful. I know there was no choice really in the season opener with the departures of the other actors but the dynamic chemistry of the original cast and their dealings with other characters was what kept me glued to the show and propelled me last year to watch two seasons back to back in three days and anxiously grab each 3rd season show as it became available on amazon. I am not that invested anymore I wish I was there are so few things I do watch lately. Once I forget how great I thought this show began and I can get over the character losses ( I think I could understand more an actor change than all the character shuffling so quickly) then I will take another stab. But for now the season opener episode will be a lone digital download of season 4. I'm just not even interested in this vampire war premise the way it has evolved so quickly in that it is almost just too campy of a storyline. It isn't so much about "being human " anymore as it is grief, death, occasional humor all in this nutty war concept where the villains take themselves too seriously to even be scary enough when suspending disbelief as a viewer. Turner's Mitchell was more frightening at times when he struggled with hunger or anger. I guess I was spoiled. Again...I mean to take nothing from those acting currently they are great and I wish nothing but the best success for the actors who moved on......but the draw that I felt to this show and the unique concepts it posed just isn't there for me. Still I encourage you to check out the episode and see for yourself and eventually I think I will check out a few more of the episodes to see if I'm pulled back in.

I agree so much I could have written your review myself. It's a new cast of three very good individual actors, but they have none of the chemistry together. Who knows, maybe they'll spark in season 5, but I'm not counting on it.

They also didn't hit capture the "bipolar" combo of heavy and lighthearted scenes that some British shows do so well. It was there, but not nearly as abrupt as the first three seasons.
