A Being Human Playlist…

The best TV show in the Universe today is BBC 3’s “Being Human” available on BBC America at 9pm on Saturdays.

“Monsters exists” is the hook… a twenty something werewolf and an eternal vampire (you can’t see him, because vampires can’t be reflected, but he knocks over a table as an extra in the movie “Casablanca”) who looks twenty something and a ghost who was murdered at the age of twenty-two share a house in modern day London. It is played straight and it is a sharp almost anti-goth pensee on the title subject matter.

And the soundtrack is almost as good, not mentioned here is an 80s ghost playing Joy Division and and and… not a “Blue Moon” in the (wolf) pack. The cheorography reminds me but not quite of Dennis Potter -it isn’t lipsynched or anything but it is integrated well beyond background or mood transformer ala “One Tree Hill” or something.

I found this list on the Being Human Website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/beinghuman/)there are six one hour episodes and they are currently filming the second seasons. Let’s just hope they leave the Yankee remake to HBO.
