    Re: Being Human (SyFy) - Season 4

    Yep, but I was reluctant to mention that, just in case anyone was spoiler-sensitive when it came to previews.

    The main character said she came from upstate New York and moved to Toronto but she behaves as though she's from another world. Her therapist/cousin(?) had to teach her about lying and wearing different dresses seemed like a foreign custom to her.

    Maybe the actress is channeling her roles on Smallville and V into this performance.

    Has anyone read the books that Bitten is based on? Do they explain her odd behavior?

    ...

    Back on topic: I think Being Human is finally managing the juggling act that it's UK counterpart did so well in its early seasons, featuring the three leads equally and involving them in equally significant story lines.

    The reverse full moon idea is intriguing, as is bubble boy vamp as leader of the vampires.

    The Sally stuff began slow and surreal but by the time she escaped into the Wal-Mart lynching department, her joy at being free was fun to watch. Ever since last season, I think that the actress playing Sally is more capable and endearing in the role and, as a result, Sally has become the breakout character on the show for me.

    She's a witch now.

    Which means that if she wants to be a witch with active powers, she has to start eating other ghosts to top up her gas tank.

    Somehow I thought it might be, probably because they took so long to renew the show last year. A quick search didn't reveal anything though. The numbers seem pretty stable. If they do decide not to renew it, it'll probably be because they aren't satisfied with those numbers.

    So, she's a vampire too. Saw that when she couldn't enter the house without being invited in. I didn't see the preview and I didn't think they'd reveal it this quickly.

    Now what's up with Josh? Whatever it is, I hope it's good. So far, it seems a little contrived, like they're just giving the character a problem because they have to give him something. Same with Sally. I still consider this one of the better written shows on right now though. Even when it's not firing on all cylinders, it still manages to hit some good notes.

    Correction... Aiden did invite her in, so why was she blocked from entering?

    It's not his house because he's dead. The dead can't own property.

    A good episode. Although I think I could have gone with out the little vampire fact we learned from Aiden... LOL.
    I think we can say Susana takes the whole self-loathing vampire thing to a whole new level. Although in her case it is kind of understandable, accidentally drinking you're kid's blood until they died would probably screw anybody up. It will be interesting to see what happens when Aiden finds out (you know he has to find out eventually, for drama's sake).

    Did they offer an explanation as to how Suzanna survived as a vampire all these centuries without having any contact with Aidan?

    I liked the menstrual humor. :lol: It shouldn't be a shocker to Nora to realize Aidan could smell her monthly flow.

    Gotta love these special commercials based on Syfy shows, like the werewolf couple from the Subaru ad. Or the Defiance-themed Axe and Dodge commercials.

    I don't remember it real clearly, but I think she said something about leaving town, and staying away until after she found out Bishop was dead, and the virus had knocked their population so low.

    So now Josh is amped up, Sally is amped up, even Kenny is amped up. And now Aiden's wife is Buffy the vampire slayer.

    Kenny is so annoying. Those vamps serving him have to be daydreaming about the good ol' Bishop days.

    Is his entire work force dust, or was that just one cell?

    At the moment we only know of the one club, but I doubt Susanna will stop there.
    I thought this was a pretty good ep. So far the storylines seem pretty interesting this season.

    So Kenny used his powers of persuasion to hide his true appearance and to influence other vampires into obeying him, but I wonder why Aidan's wife would go after the vampires. Looks like Josh is still struggling with his inner wolf.

    Susannah is a self-loathing, vampire-hating vampire. Not too surprising after what she did to her child after she Turned . . . hell, she still flagellates herself every night to punish herself.

    She's probably spent the last two hundred years killing every vampire she can, but stayed away from Boston to avoid running into Bishop and Aiden.

    I had completely forgotten about the self-flagellation from the last episode. It seems to me Susannah still has a puritanical worldview and sees the need to punish herself for something that was not her fault. And she should have gone after Bishop when she had the chance.

    Now Aidan has revealed his true identity to Kat, but it seems she doesn't take him seriously. It'll be interesting to see next week's episode.

    Nora helps deliver a werewolf couple's baby, but after hearing their conversation, I don't think she and Josh are thrilled with the prospect of having their own pup.

    Sally's little investigation doesn't yield any results, though it appears there's more to Beatrice/Li'l Smokey than meets the eye, as revealed by the old photo.
