WARNING – This may have spoilers about the show. I’m caught up on it but just in case you’re not – WARNING!
Monday nights are exciting at the Hotel Thompson for television. All housework must be completed, popcorn must be popped, bathroom breaks need to be done and you need to be in the front room for Being Human at 9:00PM. If I’m still up, I get to watch. I admit it’s scary but it’s the greatest show. The down side to the show is it’s only an hour long each Monday. It’s one of those shows that you start watching and all of a sudden the hour is up and you’re like WOW – Did that just happen!?
Being Human started on the BBC and was a British supernatural drama. It started in the United States as a supernatural drama in 2011 on the SyFy channel. We’ve watched all of the seasons, have the videos and make it a regular weekly show on Mondays for our family movie night. It is awesome! Here’s a little breakdown to wet your interest and make you want to watch.
The show revolves around three of the main characters: a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire. That’s a mix of characters already, isn’t it? Intriguing in its ownself right there. The ghost, Sally Malik, has been through her own little ordeal the first couple of seasons. There’s always a reason why you stay as ghost after death, why you don’t pass over. You know, unfinished business and all. Well, she had a lot. We find out that Sally got killed and that’s why she can’t find her door to cross over. Bummer huh? But not to fear, Sally is a lovely lady and in this season she is no longer a ghost , she is something ‘else’. For the details in that something else, well you’re going to have to watch the show. She’s blossomed into a bigger character than I ever thought possibe.
The werewolf is Josh. Since he has four legs once a month, I kind of favor him at times. He’s also on mom’s Facebook – so yes we pick favorites – snort. In the beginning of the show, he was camping with a friend in the woods and got attacked by a werewolf thus making him now a wolfie on the full moon. He just really wants to be normal. I can’t go into details about it but personally now I think he’s more normal than any of them – snort.
His bestie is the vampire, Aidan Waite. Aidan and Josh just want to fit in and be like everyday normal peeps. They both work at the local hospital – I know outrageous huh? They decide to move in together to have a kind of normalcy both knowing the others conditions. They find a house and move in and that’s when they meet Sally.
So bottom line, we have three unique people all living together trying to have a normal life despite being a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire. You think that’s enough? Of course not. Josh falls in love with Nora who also works at the hospital. She has had a really rough time in the love department. Unfortunately… or we might say fortunately after you’ve watched a couple of episodes… Nora also turns into a wolfie.
I didn’t give away too much details. It’s really an awesome show and I would give it four hooves up but I would fall on the floor so how about three hooves up? You gotta give it a try and watch a couple of shows to see if you don’t get hooked. I know we did!
