'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?

(Annie is a ghost who haunted the house that she and her fiancé, Owen shared while she was alive. At the end of last season, she turned down entering through the door of death in order to help Mitchell who had been injured, but doing so will definitely impact her current state.

Vampire craze sucks in female fans

Sound familiar ?

Yvonne Pastor never thought twice about vampires. Then one Saturday night she was bored and flipping through the TV. She stopped at HBO, on which a rerun of "True Blood" was showing.
"When it first started airing, I thought I wasn't going to waste my time watching a stupid vampire show," the city of Phoenix employee recalls. "But then I watched that one, and I was hooked. I spent the rest of the weekend watching the other episodes on Cox on Demand."
Pastor is not the only woman who has succumbed to the vampire's bite. Though it's been hanging around for more than 100 years, the genre today is as fresh as a shirtless 20-something, with shaved chest gleaming in the moonlight. And since that also describes many a contemporary bloodsucker, it's no wonder vampires are mesmerizing a growing number of female fans.

Nathan Barr’s True Blood Montage

Guillermo Del Toro Says 'The Fall' Vampires ' the blood-suckers in his novel 'won't take you to dinner. You will be dinner.'

Guillermo del Toro is a jolly fellow. You'll be 20 minutes into a conversation filled with jokey repartee and his self-deprecating asides, and you'll think: This is the guy who unleashed a swarm of killer cockroaches on a city full of children in "Mimic"?

Then, suddenly, a fuse will blow in the studio, and as your crew scrambles to re-light the set, del Toro will say, with a mix of charm and do-not-cross-me gravity, "My DP would punch you!"

But his director of photography is nowhere to be seen, nor are plague-laden roaches, and all soon returns to normal. Del Toro is here to chat about "The Fall," the second book in his trilogy (co-written with Chuck Hogan), about a parasitic epidemic turning a city's population into blood-sucking vampires. It's grim material, no doubt, but the director-turned-novelist talks ebulliently, almost from start to finish, about the book, its influences and its development.
