New Series: Being Human (BBC)

I recently discovered a new British television drama series that will interest paranormal fans of all ages. There are a total of three seasons. The first season premiered in 2009.

Being Human is about the extraordinary lives of three twenty-somethings and their secret double-lives as a vampire (Mitchell), a werewolf (George), and a ghost (Annie). They struggle to hide their dark secrets and live normal lives in the city of Bristol. Meanwhile, danger is always lurking when a vampire leader wants to kill Mitchell, and a group of religious zealots wants to rid the world of all monsters.

I just watched the first season, and I am completely hooked! I will need to watch the second season to follow the trio's next challenge. The show is modern, simple, and witty. There is less focus on special effects and more emphasis on what it is like to be human. Although the main cast realizes they are "monsters" from a paranormal perspective, they want to repent and regain their humanity.

The third season will premiere on July 24 at 10:00pm EST on the BBC America Channel. It is now available for purchase on DVD.
