Great show for monster fans

Being human is about 3 monster roommates who help each other through the day to day struggles of being a monster and a social outcast. The show explores what it means to be human and the values, experiences, mistakes and beliefs that seperate humans from the supernatural within the show. Most of the violence is within the plot to show the struggle of the supernatural charcters livinf amongst humans. It can be intense so parents may want to preview before their kids. There is a couple of sex scenes in later episodes and seasons. I highly reccomend this show overall though.

This title has:

Great messages
