Did You Know?


George (Russell Tovey) was voted "One of British TV's most annoying characters". See more »


Annie's headstone changes from season 1-2. The first time she views it, it reads "beloved fiancée.." In season 2 when her mother is viewing it, it simply states her name. Unless of course her family had it changed when Owen confessed to killing her, but they never mention it. See more »

dear everybody: watch the damn show
20 July 2014 | by HeyHeyheyKidsSee all my reviews

can't say much that hasn't already been said: insightful and fun little Brit show about three supernatural beings trying to keep their s*it together. as a fan of doctor who, I don't mind giggle-inducing FX and some awkward editing, but here those superficial faults don't even read, given the fun plot and often brilliant writing.

Russell Tovey and Lenora Crichlow are fabulous as (respectively) a highly-strung werewolf dude and an upbeat ghost girl trying to make the best of her (after)life, but it's the third member of the cast who gets my attention the most. holy S*IT Aidan turner is hot. he's a terrific actor and is given a lot of range and space to develop Mitchell, a vampire suffering from blood withdrawal in what is a blatant metaphor for substance addiction. but DAMN SON, i can't focus on your monologues n s*it with DEM ANGELIC BROWS and SCULPTED-ASS FACIAL STRUCTURE. in a couple of episodes he's half naked and i swear i literally almost wept...'thank u Jesus', i whispered to the heavens.

rampaging hormones aside, watch this show. If gore and relatively explicit sex scenes ain't your thing, then step aside, but pretty much everyone else should find something to like here: engrossing story lines, genuinely funny writing, but above all, believable and hyper-endearing performances from the supernatural trio.

I rarely give a crap about the characters of any shows I watch, but with this one, they feel like they could be some of your best buds that just happen to be dead or prone to turn into a wolf.
