Smart, fast, and funny thriller series!

LOVE this show. It's smart, it's fast, it's funny, it even has a bit of US history thrown in (after all, Aiden was "turned" during the Revolutionary War). I LOVE watching it with my 14 and 16 year old sons. Having said all that, the Common Sense review was right on, Aiden's lust for blood is treated as a heroin addiction, giving our family lots of opportunities to discuss choices teens face (saying no to drugs, violence, sex) and reinforce our family values of education, giving back, etc. Would I let my kids watch this with out me, no, but do I enjoy watching it with them? You bet! Over the seasons, as the actors get to know and develop their characters, the acting becomes much better! It IS a soap opera, and every week ends in a cliff hanger, it's not a neat little drama that tells one story each week, so be prepared to be hooked!

Too many advertisements; too much gore for my 11-year-old, too.

For the past few weeks or so, ads of Being Human have been dominating my kid's favorite shows. Of course he wanted to see this a little --- but I caught the premiere. Yawned throughout until gore started kicking in and I woke up shocked and with a pen writing down Being Human as a "no" for my 11-year-old. Ads continue to dominate and I typically mute when they come on.

Maybe for older teens.

My 13 year old wanted to watch this show after seeing the build up for it on SyFy. To be honest, the violence really didn't bother me too much but the sexual language and implied behaviors made me say, "No" to her watching the show for a few years. The characters try to do what's "right" but sometimes things go wrong. The way they want to live together and help each other out is a good thing. I also found the characters quite likable. However, my 13 year old doesn't need to hear about some of the characters sexual exploits or lack thereof.
