Very inventive series, which morphs along the way during it's first 6 episode season.
A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost all share a small house in England. They desperately want to simply fit in, be
accepted and not hurt anyone. It's got a lot of dry wit, and real emotions as well, with strong performances throughout.
Someone remarked it's like `Seinfeld' with undead characters, and that is part of the appeal early on, seeing these kinds of
characters more in human, often humorous ways than in scary supernatural ones.
But over the course of the season, the supernatural and darker tones become more and more prominent. This leads to a
confusion of tone at times, along with some messiness as to just what the rules of the game are for these creatures.
There's also a few hard to take leaps of faith (e.g. a human character who hardly seems fazed when he leans the true identity
of our three leads.).
As it turned from `dramedy' to drama, and the supernatural elements began to grow stronger I was very disappointed at first,
as it seemed like the show was losing what made it unique. But then it regained a new balance by amping up the emotions along
with the other-wordly, and making the characters' pain at being trapped between worlds, and their love and willingness to
sacrifice for each other moving and real, while avoiding (mostly) clichés or the familiar, particularly in a very strong season ending
episode. I'll be very curious to see where it goes from here.
