If you’re a fan of the original UK version of Being Human then you’ll be happy to hear that Season 3 of the hit BBC show is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray soon, very soon. Woot! The big date is May 3, 2011! See, not a long wait at all. Here’s a look at the goodies that you can expect on the upcoming release:
“Hot on the heels of the SyFy Channel’s American remake, the original UK Being Human returns to DVD and Blu-ray for a third gripping season. Leaving the memories of their much-loved former house behind, George, Nina, and Mitchell settle into their new home – a kitschy B&B named Honolulu Heights that boasts many benefits for supernatural types…a large basement providing safe haven on a full moon, for starters. Season three boasts an impressive array of guest-stars, including Lacey Turner (EastEnders) as Lia, who Mitchell meets in Purgatory, Robson Green (Wire In The Blood) as primitive werewolf McNair, Michael Socha (This Is England ’86) as McNair’s son Tom, Paul Kaye (It’s All Gone Pete Tong) as twisted vampire Vincent, Craig Roberts (Young Dracula) as teenage vampire Adam; Nicola Walker (MI-5) as social worker Wendy, James Fleet (The Vicar of Dibley) as George’s father; and Jason Watkins making an eventful return as vampire leader Herrick.”
DVD and Blu-ray extras include:
- Deleted scenes (12 mins)
- Extended interviews (20 mins)
- Sinead’s set tour (5 mins)
The retail cost of the DVD is $49.98 and the Blu-ray is $59.98. Yeah, it’s ridiculously overpriced. You would think that the Blu-ray would be a little cheaper considering that it has the same exact extras as the DVD, which usually isn’t the case with Blu-ray. Lame.
Anyway, you can either pick up your copy at the store or you can pre-order Being Human Season 3 here on Amazon (which may be the better idea since they’re only charging $22.99 for the DVD).
Will any of you be picking up a copy of Being Human Season 3? I’ll be passing on this, personally I prefer the American version MUCH more than the British one, so I’ll be saving my cash for when Season 1 of SyFy’s DVD comes out. What about you?
