It's not another Twilight
30 April 2012 | by jeremygirvanSee all my reviews

Being Human is a breath of fresh air for the whole "Creatures of the Night" genre. If you think it's just another Twilight rip-off I'm gonna stop you right there. Aiden is not just some Edward. He's believable as a Vampire. When he's jonesing for some blood he looks like he's going to puke and start ripping out his hair. His love interests, unlike in some other vampire shows, are based either on him acting like a normal human being (with humans) or drugs (with vampires). Blood is crack to him. He's not a monster, really (none of them are). He's just a very old drug addict. He's also hilarious. ("Really? The vampire bit doesn't freak you out but the male nurse thing does?") Josh is a brilliant werewolf. He's a stereotypical Jewish man and former honor student with OCD. He had everything; close friends, loving well- to-do family and the girl of his dreams. But every full moon now his heart stops, his organs fail, his skin rips apart and every bone breaks and relocates itself and he must suffer through every last second and give his mind up to a serial killer (who looks awesome by the way). He lost everything and it's obvious to see why. He's also hilarious. ("Great, we're living with Sally the peeper ghost") And Sally is just plain lovable. She a free-spirit who had everything to live for but ended up living more dead with her new friends than she ever did alive. Ghost have the obvious trait of going insane if they stick around for too long. They also have many addictive abilities that look fun but are incredibly dangerous. The second season will have a plot twist that will make your head spin with delight. Sally has many problems to deal with being a ghost. But hopefully her loving friends will keep her sane. She's also hilarious. ("You two gonna go all Twilight on each other at some point?" - "I'm not a peeper... much... I would get that mole checked out if I were you.") These are just real, likable people under extraordinarily circumstances.

Compared to the UK version, I'd say there both equally great. The US version has more depth to it (more in it to like while the UK version I'd say is deeper (the characters are closer and more it's more emotional). I've watched both and I'll say this; there's no forth season of the US version (UK watchers know what I mean).
