'Being Human' Season 1 and 2 on DVD !

Being Human

Being Human is a comedy-drama series about three twenty-something housemates trying to live normal lives, despite struggling with unusual afflictions - one is a werewolf, one is a vampire and the other is a ghost. They face a human threat in the form of the mysterious Professor Jaggat and the cold-hearted Kemp. Jaggat and Kemp are fundamentalist Christians who have discovered the existence of vampires, werewolves and ghosts - and are determined to destroy them or carry out brutal experiments upon them. They believe that vampires are the Devil incarnate and must be destroyed; that werewolves contain an evil gene that can be removed by violent scientific experiments; and that ghosts must be forced over to the other side whether they like it or not.

Aidan Turner plays the dark and handsome Mitchell who, in contrast to George, has the gift of the gab and is very popular with the ladies. He's a vampire who has been struggling to go cold-turkey from the blood he so desperately craves. Now, in the wake of the vampire leader, Herrick's death, Mitchell must appease an out of control vampire world - can he find a way to lead by example?
