Got around to seeing the last Being Human the other night. It's turned into a surprisingly good series. Not perfect, but certainly worth my while staying up and catching the episodes.
The setup of werewolf, vampire and ghost sharing a flat played up the comedy to start with but the darkness of the situation quickly came to the fore with the comedy taking just a small but important back seat. They made the right choice by keeping the effects low key and concentrating on the characters. And the whole thing built up to a suitably satisfying climax complete with the nice couple of setups for the second series just announced by the BBC. It's looking like we might have a nice British Buffy style sci-fi series on our hands.
