Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

I'm surprised he believed her.

I'm more inclined to believe that the strange is so good that he's willing to put up with her crazy.

Saw a a movie called Happy Accidents where the most beautiful woman in the world, Marisa Tomei, is so hard up to find a man who is not an inveterate asshole that when her current new boyfriend finally admits that he's from the future, that she doesn't think his being banapants crazy is a deal breaker, so she just rolls with it.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

I thought this season was pretty good. It was a good sojourn from the status quo and it ended with lots of hooks.

- What happened to that kid and can his condition be reversed?

- Sally is gone to Hell or something. Not much interesting about that. How many bardo worlds has she been to now?

- Josh is a werewolf during the day. What's up with that? Also, he'll have to find another way to become normal again since his maker is dead. I'm surprised that he's not more upset with Aidan for killing the guy.

- And finally, Aidan's wife from centuries past seems to be back.

I hope it gets renewed. I heard that the ratings were low.

Was that who that was at the end? I didn't recognize her sans her Colonial Williamsburg garb.

She could be his wife... or a descendant of Aidan's son, since they made a big point of him running.

So now that there's cliffhangers for all four of our leads, SyFy cancels the show?

They didn't do that last year . . . or the year before . . . .

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

I spent most of the season thinking that Kat was his descendant and he'd figure it out exactly 10 seconds after he'd sthuptted her.

How those witch tests work... An innocent woman will go to heaven, and a witch will be unaffected... Which suddenly calls into question about how Aiden was "made" if his wife could see the future and manipulate the dead.

Great finale. I can't wait to see where things go.
It was rather ironic because earlier yesterday I watched the last couple episodes of Season 1 for the first time. I got double the finale goodness in one day.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

Oh, so that's Aiden's wife. I didn't realize that, either. Maybe she really was a witch.

I thought this was a great episode, and I'll be really disappointed if they don't renew it. I'm kind of worried, since the ratings have slipped so much.

Josh remaining a Werewolf during the day must have something to do with being turned by a pureblood (or is it purebred?). Or maybe he's the first Werewolf to be turned twice.

That was quite an exit for Sally. She's always going on bad trips.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

How many lives, many innocent, have been destroyed during the course of this show? It's kind of strange watching sometimes thinking the world would probably be better off without these characters.

Pretty good, wrapped up some loose ends, set up the next season. While the glam thing was a bit of a reset button in one sense I liked the involvement of Blake. Interesting having Deanna Russo in here, she comes off a lot differently than in Knight Rider.

This show does a better job so far of not seeming so convoluted in masking nudity than True Blood's funny poses when the human males transform back.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

I missed something--who was Aiden's wife in modern day? I saw she drowned back then, and his son, Isaac, ran off as instructed.

Poor Sally! She can't cut a break!

She's the one who got out of the taxi at the end. I've been reading other boards and it looks like a lot of people didn't recognize her.

And about Deanna Russo... It's funny, because when she first appeared on the show, I recognized her but couldn't place her even though I watched Knight Rider.

That is good news. Being Human is one of the.few good genre shows on the air.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 3

Great finish.. Can't wait to see where this goes with the wife/decendant showing up in Boston...

I wonder, what with Nora's scream, if they will pick up right away or do a time jump... I'd like to see how Josh's new "condition" plays out from that point, rather than have it explained away...

I think the producers overestimated our ability to recognize her out of context--and with a 21st century makeover.

The way the scene is staged, I suspect our jaws were supposed to drop, but instead many of us ended up scratching our heads instead.

"Huh? Who is that? Do we know her?"
