Being Human is a supernatural drama television series that originally aired on Syfy from 2011 to 2014. The series follows the lives of three supernatural beings - a vampire, a ghost, and a werewolf - as they struggle to coexist with humans and among themselves. The show features Sam Witwer as Aidan, a centuries-old vampire who is trying to distance himself from his past as a ruthless killer. Meaghan Rath plays Sally, a ghost who is trapped in the house where she died and is trying to find a way to move on. Sam Huntington plays Josh, a werewolf who is struggling to come to terms with his condition and live a normal life.

The show is set in Boston, where the three main characters are trying to live normal lives while keeping their supernatural identities a secret from the rest of the world. They are also dealing with their own personal demons, including past traumas, relationship issues, and addiction.

Throughout the series, the three characters navigate various challenges and conflicts, both with each other and with external threats. They must also deal with a range of other supernatural creatures, including other vampires, ghosts, and werewolves.

One of the central themes of the show is the struggle to find acceptance and belonging. Each of the main characters is dealing with some form of isolation or loneliness, and they find that they can only truly be themselves when they are together. They form a tight-knit bond that helps them to weather various challenges and overcome their personal demons.

Another key aspect of the show is the exploration of the supernatural world and its rules. The series creates its own mythology around vampires, ghosts, and werewolves, and it develops a complex and nuanced world that feels consistent and engaging. The show also raises interesting moral and philosophical questions about the nature of humanity and what it means to be alive.

One of the biggest strengths of the show is its talented cast. Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, and Sam Huntington all give fantastic performances, bringing depth and nuance to their characters. The chemistry between the three actors is also excellent, making their relationships feel authentic and compelling.

The show's writing is also strong, balancing humor, drama, and action with skill. The series manages to tackle serious issues while also keeping a lighthearted tone, and it never takes itself too seriously. The series also features excellent cinematography, music, and visual effects, adding to the overall immersive experience.

Overall, Being Human is an engaging and entertaining series that explores complex themes and characters. While it is primarily a supernatural drama, it also has elements of comedy, romance, and action. It has a dedicated fan base and has garnered critical acclaim for its excellent cast, writing, and production values.
