And the official Being Human website has announced that Series 5 is the final series.

I'm so in love with how they've kept the show going, even with the loss of the original cast, but it's better for it to go out on a high rather than keep going until they're tired.

I've only ever caught a handful of episodes, most from last season, and also saw the latest episode of season 5 the other night, but from what I have seen I absolutely love it. I plan on getting the boxsets and watching from the beginning! bounce

What did you two think of the latest episode?

COOP!
*Big hug!*
I really enjoyed getting to know Alex more, though I'm not sure what to think of Tom and Hal's new jobs.

As for the big bad, when it was revealed it was the Devil, I did have to wonder what that would mean for the future of the series. I mean, if you have to have each big bad top the last one (in which case, what on earth, Series 3?), how can you get bigger than Mr. Evil himself?

I look forward to where Series 5 takes us, and will be sad that it will be the last time, but very glad they chose to go out on top.

Big hug to you, too, Jared.

I'm glad the show is ending as well.

I'm not a fan of that big bad reveal--it felt kind of silly and far-fetched, even for this show. So he's just spent hundreds of years right here? That doesn't sound too threatening---although the ending was appropriately effective. Actually, the whole episode just seemed kind of sillier to me than usual. Something about the whole 'leading the vampires' thing feels pointless, like the show didn't know where else to go after last season.

I know, I know, that sounds really negative---especially coming from someone who loved season 4, but I did like it. I also loved getting more of Alex---she easily had the best lines, and I'm sad the show is ending just as we're getting to know her. Hal was rather adorable---so there's that... and I instantly loved the character of the man (I can't remember his name) in the grey suit (that's a terrible description for him, I know).

That was...weird... and REALLY RATHER DARK HUH

..and for our supernatural-character-of-the-week this time around, what's the deal---was he really there for a long time or sent there recently? They didn't expand on that.

I still can't stop thinking..what is he doing there? I'd imagine he could be anywhere he'd wanted Razz I still find it all very silly. Especially the 'he will rise' bit---can we stop sticking phrases like that on television shows? It's been cliche for a while now..

I wrote a blog about the entire series.

Toby Whithouse says the ending of the series,

Whithouse says the DVD will contain an extra scene that will make the ending definite. However, we in the US will have a bit of a wait, since I read today that it won't air on BBC America until this summer. This means we'll get the DVD MUCH later.

Personally,
