Aidan, Josh & Sally of Being Human (U.S.)

I was goin' to go with Doctor Who, but includin' all of 'em put the animation over the limit.

^how are they rebels? I only watched some of the UK version, so give your reasoning, please.

Aidan doesn't drink from live people like every other vampire and throughout the first two seasons, he has to defend his way of life to other vampires in authority like Bishop, the Dutch and Mother.

Josh looks at the wolf as a curse, and not a blessin' or a release like other werewolves he meets and he refuses to be a part of a pack or start one of his own. He locks himself away in cages or storage units durin' his change instead of runnin' free.

Sally doesn't use her door like every other ghost she meets, instead stayin' focused on the mortal world and her supernatural friends. She even sends other ghosts into limbo and fights against the witch who brought her back in the third season, even though the witch had authority over her.

Plus, the fact that Aidan, a vampire, and Josh, a werewolf, even stay friends and roommates is an act of rebellion against their cultures. That all three are tryin' to be "normal" is rebellion against their own nature.

How's that? Good enough, or should I come up with something else?

Ooh, good topic! I actually had a few that I wanted to use, but eventually decided to go with:


- John & Kimberly, Dark Skies

Sorry, a couple posts got in before I posted, so I didn't see it. I'm changing my entry to this:



Angel, who you might say rebels against the traditional ways of the vampire.

From my 2nd favorite movie of all time, Brazil...





...coincidentally my #1 movie also features rebels, but I don't think I'd be able to talk auntie into taking a Casablanca av.
