Bloody Good Fun

Have You Finished Being Human UK? Then Watch This Video.


Or don’t. Maybe. It depends on how you felt about the ending of Being Human UK. [Spoilers of a sort.] I feel like more so than here in the US, a lot UK series aren’t afraid to leave their stories open-ended or without a happy ending but at least with Being Human, we were almost given a choice of what to believe. Personally, I chose to ignore the origami and dream about the roommates being content for a change. And then I watched this video which gives a definitive, yet open-ended, answer to the close of the series.

I will say this – I was doubtful toward the new cast but fell in love with them all very quickly. I definitely would have watched another season with them but all in all, a good end to a great television show. I’m sad to see it go.

    hmm I’m not sure which one I’m going to pick as “my” ending. The other one was kinda like well maybe the origami is just a coincidence, or like a battle trophy. “Look we won and got happy endings so we kept one of his stupid origami.” this one is darker “Aww damn no happy ending for us, but were gonna go whup some ass, cuz its what we do.”
    So actually I think I’ll go with this one. Because it leaves more room for fanfics, that’s why!

    It reminds me of the Angel finale. Works for me!

    This is probably why they decided not to use it. Ha!

    I think I preferred the ambiguity of the actual series-ender. But I do like this little vignette… I treat the whole of series 5 and 6 as a kind of alternate continuity mentally anyway: I grew to like the new trio and the new stories but I didn’t like how those series ended the stories of George, Annie and Nina. After all the work of the previous seasons, fridging Nina and killing off George and Annie, however heroically, seemed a bit of a non-sequitur to me (although I think Mitchell’s death made more sense).

    There’s a parallel then: in my head we last see George, Annie and Nina squaring up to Lee Ingleby’s Big Bad and WE NEVER FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM :)

    It makes sense that Alex, Tom and Hal go out also squaring their shoulders for the big fight :)

    I went with the theory that they were actually dead and together in the afterlife at the end of S5 — a happy ending, IMO. It didn’t make sense (even for a supernatural show) that they were actually human in the end, especially Alex. I knew it was a dream, though. I’m not crazy about the bonus scene, with its monster-superhero ending. I mean, I’d love to watch a monster superhero show, but that’s never been what being human was about.
