Being Human: Season One

 (TV) (2009)

Being Human: Season One Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

At first sight there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary about flatsharers George and Mitchell, but both harbour dark secrets. Once a month, geeky hospital porter George is transformed into a rabid, flesh-tearing werewolf, while womanising, man-about-town Mitchell is trying to forego his blood-sucking vampire instincts. As they take the keys to their new home, the boys discover that their flat has another occupant - lonely ghost Annie, who died in a car accident days before she was due to marry her fiance.

For more about Being Human: Season One and the Being Human: Season One Blu-ray release, see Being Human: Season One Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow, Aidan Turner, Jason Watkins, Dylan Brown, Sinead Keenan

Being Human: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

"Being Human: Season One" scares up a decent enough 1080i, 1.78:1-framed transfer for its Blu-ray release. This is a pretty basic shot-on-video looking production; it's glossy, flat, and features minimal noise save for a bit hovering over some of the darker scenes in the show. Fine detailing is adequate but generally unimpressive; clothing, faces and facial hair, brick walls, and odds and ends scattered about the frame fail to produce that crisp, lifelike, and natural flair associated with superior transfers. Blacks are, for the most part, steady and honest, and colors, too, retain a pleasant neutrality, despite a hint of bleeding across some of the harsher shades. Though the image lacks in superior definition, it generally remains sharp, though several shots do go inexplicably but only slightly soft. Being Human: Season One never looks fantastic, but it never looks particularly messy, either. It's a slightly-above-average transfer that suits the show well enough, but its harsh video-like appearance doesn't do it any favors.


Being Human: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

"Being Human: Season One" features a problematic and unimpressive Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack. The absence of a lossless soundtrack hurts the value of the package and the quality of the listen, the latter in particular evident from the opening moments of the show forward. Even at reference volume, the track lacks sheer volume and requires an increase to make out everything that's happening. Dialogue is usually stable and clear enough, though it does tend to get lost underneath music and sound effects, when applicable. Most every element -- dialogue included -- features little in the way of definition; the track has an uninspired and tired feel to it, resulting in a mushy and shallow presentation. It also delivers minimal ambience that's limited to the front speakers; chatter and ringing phones inside the hospital or distant booming thunder lack the space needed to truly immerse the listener in the show's various environments. Perhaps most damaging to the experience are those moments where a more robust low end would have greatly aided the show; various crashes and loud effects comes across as lacking any oomph and instead play as garbled and indistinct. Unfortunately, there's also a lip sync issue plaguing this set; it's most noticeable at the beginning of episode six, but it's also present to some degree elsewhere, too. This issue was verified on two separate players. Being Human: Season One's soundtrack is easily the lowlight of this package; it gets its job done at a base level but never extends beyond the nuts-and-bolts required to get listeners through the season.
