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.

* "Alex's Unfinished Business" – Five bonus clips * Exclusive content and deleted scenes * Cast interviews

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.

This is by far, the best show I have watched in such a long time. It's clean and 100% better than the American version. (I only watched 5 minutes of the first episode of the USA version). My niece came over, started watching, stated that it was so much better than the one she was watching. I love British TV, and movies...for a reason.

I have deeply enjoyed this series since its beginning. I'm not sure what, exactly, there is about the characters that gets under your skin, and it seems odd to bond emotionally with such - shall we say "unconventional"? - personas, but I feel as though I was a member of the stake-wielding, wall-cleaving, neck-biting Being Human cast all along. It's a combination of things: fine acting, snappy and believable dialogue, good scripting, an attractive and durable story line, superlative casting. I can't find anything that's not first-rate about this series and I will miss it terribly!

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.

This is the final season of a great BBC series that has now been made in to an American series. The BBC (this one) is better however. It is a story of a ghost, werewolf and vampire who live in the same place and how they have made their own family together and how they support, help and sometimes forgive each other. Well worth the watch and each season was better than the next even though they changed cast members so that one of them could go off and film the Hobbit Trilogy. Highly recommend for the lover of supernatural stories.
