Latest Obsession

April 3, 2014

I’m watching Being Human (the original BBC version), and all I can say is Holy crap it’s good!  Well that isn’t all I can say, but I don’t want to ruin it for anyone.  This show has existed for some time now, and I’ve been interested in it ever since I heard of it, but why didn’t I start before now?  It’s incredible.  A ghost, a werewolf and a vampire are roommates struggling with their conditions and trying to lead normal “human” lives.  It’s much harder than it seems.  And although the show has a supernatural flavor to it, it’s really a show that’s about trying to live your life.  Being Human isn’t only hard for the cursed or the dead, but for people in general.  It’s a great mix of comedy, high drama and horror. So it feels a lot like real life while you are watching.  And the characters and the stories are just so deep and engaging and emotionally intense.  I can’t get enough of this, nor can I stop watching. It has taken over my week.
