Now this is one of those posts where I'll rave about something. You'll all ignore me and then in around 8 months you'll rediscover it and rec it to me.

That's ok, I'm not bitter (much anyway :p) Hehehe (no really I'm just amused)

BUT! There's this little show on BBC3 now called Being Human. I think it's just a pilot so far but I hope they make it a series or that it is a series.

It's about three people who live together. All young adults, or well look like ones anyway. Two guys and a girl and they're all rather fabulous.

The twist? One guys a werewolf, one's a vampire and the girl's a ghost.

:D

A whole bunch of nudity as well for Mr. Puppydog since yeah.. you don't get your clothes with you when you turn into a werewolf.

I have a thing for this type of urban fantasy so it was an easy sell for me. There is some interestingess in the character dynamics. Other vamps refer to Mr Werewolf as the pet of the vampire. A woman mistakes the two guys for a gay couple and the girl is just fabulous.

Oh yeah and the boys work helping out in a hospital.

It's not perfect. Mr. Vampire tends to go a bit heavy on the "I am Vampire, I shall have a Husky Voice" acting but it's still good fun.

That sounds like such a fun program!

*sigh* It won't let anyone outside of the British-area watch it because of "rights agreements".

I suppose I should not be surprised but I am just about to post an upload for it because I watched it as well and thought it was one of the best things I'd seen for ages. Fides and Bigtitch were also wibbling about it.

Also the vampire guy is smokin' hot. I mean really...I forsee stalking in my future..

Let's hope, hope HOPE it gets a full season

Haha! I knew you'd like it. Mitchell is just awesome - definitely going down the vampire=addiction route. Bit of a Methos edge as well - age and experience in a young-looking body. And hot too - not my usual type - but sexy as all get out.

Do you guys know about the two communities? [livejournal.com profile] beinghuman_fans for everything except fic and [livejournal.com profile] beinghuman_fic for fic.

I must admit while I like Mitchell, I am adoring RemusGeorge.

You too! Yay! There are more of us every day. Although, to be honest, I think practically everyone who watches loves it from reading the buzz on the forums.

I am already writing slash.

They really really need to commission the rest of the series. It's making people buzz. It's quite daft really it was supposed to be a sort of competition between several pilots and then one of them got commissioned for a full series before the rest had shown because someone higher up in BBC really liked the one that got the commission. Think it's called Poo Action or something like that.

However then they showed it and it got not that brilliant ratings and the buzz about that series I've heard is that it's rather crap.

A lot of people seem to have fallen for Being Human now though. So it's all a bit unfair. The BBC said though that it wasn't a done deal yet and they might endd up commissioning two series rather than just the one so there's still hope.
