On DVD this week is the highly anticipated third season of the hit show BEING HUMAN!
Taken from the British series created by Toby Whithouse, the SyFy channel has brought it to fans here! The series began in 2011 and fans were introduced to Aidan (Sam Witwer), who is a vampire and Josh (Sam Huntington) who is a werewolf along with girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager). They move into an apartment together only to find out that the ghost of Sally (Meaghan Rath) still resides there. This friendship, although a strange one, works!
Now, in Season Three there are huge changes in the friendships! Donna (Amy Aquino) is a witch who brings Sally back to life but at a huge cost. The curse of being a werewolf has left Josh and Aidan is exposed to a sickness that kills vampires.
Anyone who watches the series knows the same as I do that these storylines and characters are complex and multi-layered. That’s what makes the show so utterly fantastic! Trying to keep their secrets isn’t easy and with the intensity of the storyline for Season Three just lines fans up for Season Four.
The performances by Witwer, Rath, Huntington and Hager are riveting and done so well that this SyFy series is sure to go into more seasons. Also, it was fun going back to the first season to watch every episode because, quite honestly, there were subtle things that I missed – and I love when that happens. Mainly because by watching the series again with friends we get all hyped up for the upcoming season.
There are spells, portals, cures, crashes, werewolves in Boston, virus tainted blood, transgressions, Soul Lock’s, young werewolves, the American Revolution, Wicca coven’s, embalmer’s wax, hallucinating viruses, Days on the Charles, disfigured vampires, a wedding, and a witch.
Yes, its that kind of show. Fans have become serious about their werewolves, vampires and ghosts and putting all three together makes for amazing television.
The DVD has bonus features that include a behind-the-scenes featurette, the cast on cliffhangers, bloopers, which are always a riot and the Being Human panel from last summer’s Comic Con (yes, I was there thrilled with the rest of the 5,000 people in the room!).
The DVD also contains 572 minutes of the show along with all 13 episodes contained in the four discs. Have I gotten you properly worked up yet? There are several remedies for that: 1) If you haven’t seen BEING HUMAN then get the first three seasons and invite all the gals over for a weekend of vampires, werewolves and ghosts AND 2) if you are a fan then get your copy of BEING HUMAN Season Three now on DVD and prepare for Season Four coming soon!
In the end – be careful what you wish for!
