Tv Season Info

This supernatural comedy/drama revolves around the concept of two young men sharing an apartment. While this seems like a tried and tested formula for television, the twist is that Mitchell is a vampire and George is a werewolf. Complicating matters further is the small issue of the pair's newfound home being haunted by the ghost of Annie; a young lady with unfinished business of her own.

Top Critic

Oddly enough, Being Human, a series that posits ghosts, werewolves and vampires roaming through the pubs and supermarkets of Bristol, is more prosaic, but more compelling.
