Review – Being Human: Episode II – (1.02)
This week on Being Human, George meets a stranger who quickly, despite his initial resistance, becomes his friend and mentor. The stranger’s name is Tully and he’s also a werewolf. Annie and Mitchell find Tully to be a cool guy and allow him to stay a few days at their flat. George excels under Tully’s tutelage and all seems fine until Tully’s gruff ways upset Annie, and he is asked to leave. George, in a fit of anger does not to care what his roommates want and decides that Tully should stay. It is only when George discovers that Tully is his maker that things get out of control. George breaks his friendship with Tully and warns his maker to never contact him again. The episode ends with the flatmates viewing a strange vampire erotica by mistake, thinking it to be Casablanca, the movie. The pornographic movie was left by another vampire named Lauren for Mitchell’s eyes only.
Being Human is a very “British” show, its humor just might escape some American viewers, who might not fully grasp British culture. Since some of the shows humor comes in the form of slang or British stereotyping. An example of this is when George informs Mitchell that most British people only give a friendly wave Hello to their neighbors for many years, before ever saying it, let alone inviting them for tea. A funny line if you know how stuffy the British can be. I really hope this show catches on in America because it certainly has much more to offer than blood sucking, bumps in the night and howling at the moon.
I am very intrigued by this show. The vampire takeover plot is quite interesting, but the real flavor of this show is the relationship between the flatmates. I think this is the magic it offers, three supernatural beings trying to live their lives and handle their various conditions. I thought originally the show might be a bit more flashier with its effects and viewers would lose sight of the actual drama. I do not think this is happening, in fact I believe the supernatural element is just part of the ongoing dramatic struggle of these characters. The writing is good and I think it could build rather well to a good climax. At the end of each episode I am left wanting more and to my own surprise filled with hope, that the characters can just hold out and keep their dark sides at bay.
For now I am very curious about these three monsters and their desire just to be human.
