Real Sitcom: A Vampire, A Werewolf And A Ghost Share A House

The BBC's Being Human puts three temperamental twenty-somethings together in a Bristol flat in Bristol. The only catch: they're a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf, under the same roof. Comedy gold? Watch for yourself.


On February 1, the BBC premieres the new comedy series Being Human. (Get it? Because none of them are.) To be honest, I don't know why it's taken so long to get this show into motion - who doesn't want to see a ghost a vampire and a werewolf try and balance curses, blood hunger pains and dating?

Here are the character bios from the BBC:

Mitchell (Vampire)
Aidan Turner plays the good-looking and laid-back Mitchell who, in contrast to George, has the gift of the gab and an easy confidence with the ladies. But he is also a blood-sucking vampire struggling with going cold-turkey from the blood he craves.

George (Werewolf)
Russell Tovey reprises his role as the lovable George, battling with his double identity as a mild-mannered and geeky hospital porter who for one night a month is transformed into a flesh-hungry, predatory werewolf.

Annie (The Ghost)
Completing the flat-share trio is Annie, played by Lenora Crichlow, a talkative ghost lacking in self-confidence and desperate for company. Annie is still pining after her boyfriend, whom she was due to marry before the fatal accident that left her with her ghostly affliction - and who happens to be the landlord of their flat.


Enjoy this clip, and the BBC is hosting the pilot on their site. I'd like to take this time to say: Thank you, BBC, for making my drunken TV wishes come true.

I'm in.

It'll be better to watch this than 2 and a half men.

Plus I'll have a nice frame of reference when some American station chooses to rip it off and make their own.
