User Reviews

Not a fan of vampire shows, but LOVE THIS SERIES!!!
26 April 2013 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

I give it 10 stars because it is perfection in the art of storytelling. I am an American viewer, and I prefer the American cast. Let me first say that if you are like me, you haven't watched Twilight saga or True Blood and generally you feel sick of vampires at the mere mention. That said, what made me tune in to Being Human? I saw the ad on a city bus and it struck my curiosity. I looked into it and loved the premise - modern roommates, cursed in 3 different ways, all trying to be normal. I watched the pilot and fell in love. This series has been at the top of my list since. I can't wait for it to start again, and it kills me when a season ends - always a great cliffhanger!

I adore the werewolf, Josh. I sympathize with Aiden, the vampire. And Sally, well, Sally is just irresistible fun! Nora is also a great character and actress ... sincerely, I give this series 10 stars because for me (and I am quite picky about storytelling practices) - this series is FLAWLESS. Perfectly written, which above all is a must. Perfectly cast. Perfect performances each week. Fabulous direction, editing. And the makeup artists and CGI artists are cream of the crop!

Being Human makes me look forward to Mondays!
