FTN reviews Being Human S04E03

February 19th, 2012 by Marc Comments

If the first two episodes of Season 4 were about saying goodbye to old characters and saying hello to new ones, then The Graveyard Shift was all about getting into the swing of things.
And how. The third episode is easily the best in this series to date. The emphasis is placed firmly on the budding friendship between Tom and Hal and the results are nothing short of outstanding.
Being Human, at heart, has always placed greater emphasis on the relationship between the main characters than the plot arc.
That’s certainly the case here as Hal is forced to choose a side when his old vampire associates make an offer anyone could find difficult to resist.
The Graveyard is simply hilarious as Hal finds himself slumming it in the cafe with Tom.
The banter between is excellent and by the time the episode’s over, it’s fair to say these are characters that we really care about.
Their bet to see who can chat up the goth Michaela are side splitting.
It wouldn’t be Being Human without a hint of darkness and in that respect it didn’t disappoint either.
There had been fears that with the change of cast that Being Human would never recover.
Those fears are allayed with a cracking episode that shows that Being Human has lost none of its lustre.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
