Watch Being Human

Being Human is a television series that began its run on the SyFy channel in 2011. It is a supernatural roommate drama with elements of comedic relief. The series involves three roommates, each with their own supernatural characteristics. One is a vampire, one a werewolf and the other a ghost. The series follows these three creatures as they try to live a normal life together. They live in a house in Boston, where a lot of the series takes place.

The premise of Being Human is that many supernatural beings choose to live against humans rather than with them. They present a danger to the people around them. The three main characters in both series decide to break this stereotype and live their lives, insomuch as they have lives, as human beings. They try not to hurt people and help each other through many situations where they slip up or feel like they may slip up. They are afraid of being exposed for what they are and of being forced by the more evil creatures to give up their lifestyles.

In the beginning, the ghost is the only inhabitant of the apartment. She died in the building before her old apartment was rented out. No one knew she was still there. When the apartment was finally rented out, it was to a vampire and a werewolf who can see and interact with ghosts. This made it more of a three-person roommate situation. The two males, who are the werewolf and the vampire, try to keep jobs and have relationships. As a ghost, the female roommate finds it impossible to do those things. Therefore, she is perhaps the least able to "be human" of the trio.

While the three roommates are the main cast of the series, there are numerous recurring cast members, both human and supernatural. Many of the recurring cast members are of the same ilk as the roommates -- ghosts, vampires and werewolves. Some of the vampires are very old, making for interesting back stories to go with the present day drama that occurs in the series.

Tom is set on avenging Natasha's death and has returned to his default setting - vampire killer. The two fight it out, but unbeknownst to them, Captain Hatch is no longer wheelchair bound and weak: he's the Devil, and is determined to cause as much chaos, death and destruction as possible.

Bobby's been locked up in the archive for decades and is consequently more na┬»ve and socially awkward than Tom ever was. For once, someone is in Tom's thrall.
