They're Back! BBC's hit series " Being Human " season 2 premieres Saturday night

They're Back!
Vampires, and werewolves, and ghosts, oh my! The new season premieres July 24th at 10/9c right after the Doctor Who season finale.


Being Human, featuring three roommates who happen to be a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf, was almost lost in the pop-culture furor around fellow supernatural series Twilight and True Blood. What sets this BBC America series apart is that it's as true to life as a series of its kind can be.

Being Human: Season One (suggested retail price $34.98) was released on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday. The first episode plops you right into the characters' lives, with little enough exposition that you're forced to pay attention. George the werewolf and Mitchell the vampire, who work together at a hospital, move into a new flat haunted by Annie. She's happy they can see her. They're a little worried because there's the dark side staring at them.

That's just the surface, though. Look a little deeper, and you'll find yourself deeply involved with Aidan Turner's smoldering yet subtle performance as the vampire, Russell Tovey's twitchy werewolf and Lenora Crichlow's ghost, whose emotions and insecurities are always rising to the surface.
