Thanks to the fans of Being Human tweeting and spreading the word about tonight’s all new episode via social media, Syfy has shared the first four minutes of the episode.
BBC AMERICA’s original hit series, Being Human, returns February 25, as part of BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday. In its fourth chapter, the show is reinvigorated with new cast members, shocking plot-twists, guest appearances and an altogether new type of supernatural creature. In sharing his excitement about the new season, creator and writer Toby Whithouse (Doctor Who, Torchwood) promises: […]
On the surface, the premise behind “Being Human” may sound like the bad opening line to a joke (A ghost, a vampire and a werewolf all live together in a shared house). And while the show may be keenly self-aware and have its moments of humor and sly winks at the audience, there are moments when the series rises above them and becomes something more.
Created and written by Toby Whitehouse, the series focuses mainly on Mitchell, the vampire, and his fellow bloodsuckers’ desire to ‘convert’ people into an unstoppable, superior race. And while there isn’t a lot of new ground tilled here (the idea of an angsty, guilt-ridden vampire stretches back to “Buffy” and the early works of Anne Rice), the series at least keeps this storyline interesting and compelling enough to justify its arc for the first season.
U.S. fans of the BBC series “Being Human” will get a chance to catch up on the first series before the second series begins airing in the United States this summer. BBC America will release the first series on DVD in July.
