Yeah, Being Human is back on our screens tonight, the compelling supernatural drama that does push Buffy and Angel to one side.
Now in its third series Being Human is the the critically acclaimed hit BBC Three drama, chronicling the somewhat complicated lives of a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living in modern-day Bristol.
So what is wrong with it?
Well the BBC have invested in this program casting fantastic actors, spending money on good production values.
Problem 1: It is squirreled away on BBC 3. Why? This is a quality program that deserves BBC 1 exposure, BBC2 at the very least.
Problem 2: Marketing, the BBC are still insisting this is a comedy. Now I have seen comedies on BBC 3. They are usually purile, teen based, ‘innit’ talking youths and made for ?50 with a raid of the BBC prop store. Ok may be this is too harsh, but the production values, writing and acting are on a par with(if not exceeding) most BBC 1 dramas.
So BBC, give this fantastic DRAMA a shot on BBC1. You won’t regret it.
