Being Human and Heroes... Sunday night? Gone!

Tonight my mum called me (at 9) to tell me to turn on BBC3 at 9.30 to watch (drum-roll please!)

THE SECOND SERIES OF BEING HUMAN!

That's right the vampire, the werewolf and the ghost are back sharing their house in Bristol and...It's not bad.

I have the entire 1st series on DVD and I loved the absolute... innocent humour beside the gore and dark undertones. The menace and the horror that happens was still kept funny somehow, and I LOVE George.

The second series has started and from the look of the first 20 minute episode it's getting darker. Mitchell (vampire in leather jacket) has a few more old friends popping up to go round killing people, and there's a mysterious scientist trying to cure the werewolf curse and killing the werewolves in the process with no remorse. A mysterious group are seeking the trio out and George's girlfriend Nina was given the curse in last series' dramatic climax.

Meanwhile the series continues with the trio's somewhat futile attempts to integrate themselves into society.

And every episode seems ready to continue with George's bum making regular appearances :P

The first episode was sadly sparse with the jokes however, and although all the character development is pretty perfect (George has a cocky smile! I love it!) I really miss the wry wit and optimism of the first series. Although there were some brilliant lines (even if they were muttered).

Overall, I love it, I do, but the first episode of a new series could have been more eye-catching.

And Heroes... well it's brilliant, but more of the same.

Oh dear, that sounded like I was moaning. I do love them both, and I know my sunday nights are going to be my wrapped-in-a-dressing-gown and cuppa-tea night.

Riveting :P

Also, on a fanfiction note... when my assignments are done (Thursday) I will finish that Bleach story. After one or two raving nights... :P

MC out!
