    9.5
    Mitchell, now knowing Lucy's involvement in the vampire killing takes the fight to the construct where the CenSSA operates out of. George and Nina prepare to go through the experiments with their transformations to help their condition and Annie stays with them. Kemp may also be hiding a hidden fancy for someone. Mitchell's doing away with all the followers quickly turns into a bloodbath that leads him to make a choice of whether he and his friends are the true monsters or the people behind CenSSA are responsible for turning them against themselves in a great scene between Kemp, Mitchell, and George. The gang may need to pull a few tricks more than normal to survive this debacle and in the end nothing will ever be the same. Also the epilogue to the series totally comes out of nowhere but it's amazing.moreless
  • In season 2 George, Mitchel, and Annie have gone through a transformation of sorts following their personal show-downs in season 1.

    I loved this show starting with episode 1. I love the drama, the humor, the personal growth of the mine characters, and the engaging story lines. I really can't say that I have a favorite character because I love all of the characters equally for different reasons. I love Annie's self-awareness, her introspect, Naivety, compassion, and appreciation of life despite being a ghost. I love George's courage and personal quest to his question of what does it mean to be human, and how does one who is supernatural find balance living among humans. I love Mitchel's constant fight to blend in with society without giving in to his thirst for blood. I love his positivity, his strength and fierce determination to make the best out of a horrible situation. Each of the characters in Being Human have inner demons their fighting to deal with every day just like the humans the live among, and just like humans the too struggle to find the balance and strength to make it through another day. These supernatural beings are discovering each day that, deep down inside they're more human then they think.moreless

    This is an outstanding show. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it (not that some flaws would make me like this show any less) and it is just so well done overall. Terrific acting. Great script. The vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc. are more human and realistic in this show than in a lot of other shows and movies in the same genre. Their feelings seem genuine and the actors do a great job at getting that across. The show doesn't glamorize the conditions. Seriously, if someone was living as a werewolf/vampire/ghost, this is how they would feel: tormented, conflicted, living in fear of hurting others while engulfed in self pity as if your problems were the worst anyone could ever face but never understand. With that said, the episode was fantastic and we learn of a new special ability that vampires have. There were only a couple times when I was confused. Why was it that Mitchell's image turned up on one of the screens when he was invisible in the others? Also, where was Lucy's ghost when she died? Other than that, I'm very happy with the episode and the series. Even with so few episodes per season/series, it feels as if the journey was long but eventful.moreless
