By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: Sally feels guilty about Trent’s death. To make up for it, she visits his body in the morgue and encounters his whiny ghost. Attempting to pull a Whoopi-Goldberg-in-Ghost, she tries to get him settled by attending his funeral (with the help of a sympathetic undertaker, Max) and comforting his fiancée. Unfortunately, Trent’s idea of squaring things with his fiancée is having Sally confess that he made out with her. Imagine Trent’s …

Column: Gods and Monsters: Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 3.02: (Dead) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: After a shorter, and rather convenient, leap in time than the one between seasons, we come back to find Sally, Nick and Stevie all alive and aboveground again. It seems that Nick and Stevie did go back to their own bodies and wake up in their own graves. Fortunately, some quick visits and grave-digging by Josh and Nora saved them before they suffocated. As the episode begins, Nick has reunited with his ghost-whispering …

Column: Gods and Monsters: Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 3.01: It’s a Shame About Ray (season premiere)

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: It’s 15 months after last season’s cliffhanger. Josh and Nora appear to have settled into a quiet life together. Sally is still trapped in Limbo with Stevie and Nick. Aidan is still buried alive, despite an odd hallucinatory dream of the three housemates in their kitchen, with which the episode begins.

Things don’t stay that way for long, nor has there been a status quo under the apparently placid surface. Sally has been …

Syfy has announced that the next season of Being Human has begun filming. In the process, they dropped some spoilers, one of them pretty major. Looks like Aidan gets out of being buried alive in the season finale to find the vampire world in a mess. Sally’s still in Limbo (no time jump this season, I guess). And yet another person with an axe to grind comes after Josh and Nora. Wait, you say. Wasn’t Nora’s fate in doubt at

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: Josh tries to go to Julia’s funeral in Ithaca, but is stopped by her friend, Emily, who explains that Julia’s family and friends will want to blame him. Emily tells Josh it’s not his fault, though Josh, knowing his wolfing out caused Julia to step back into the path of the car, feels differently. His brooding is interrupted by a call from the hospital – it turns out that Nora had got her …

Being Human had its season finale this week. Season three should return next January. Lost Girl also had its season one finale, but Syfy decided to go immediately into the show’s 22-episode season two (which just ended in Canada). So, we’ll get more Lost Girl at least until the week before Memorial Day and we’ll continue reviewing it, as well.
