Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.11: Don’t Fear the Scott

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: Josh decides to reconnect with drippy Julia. This involves a double date and dinner at the house with Aidan and Suren, while Sally invisibly (to Julia) chaperones. This results in a hilarious dinner in which three of the female characters – a vampire, a human and a ghost – are in the same room and interacting. Suren has a good time baiting Julia, who remains clueless about the supernatural and is mad at …

Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.10: Dream Reaper

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: A comatose Sally is living in her own dream world, where her Reaper self is her perfect boyfriend (named ‘Scott’). She has a nice job, a great relationship with her mother, and classy clothes (instead of the usual PJs and sweater) with a great haircut. Even the house is all done up in a new, grey decor. But she has a flash of reality when she sees a reflection of Josh in the …

Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.09: When I Think About You I Shred Myself

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: Aidan arrives at the house with a skinned Henry and gets Josh to invite him in. Once there, he glamours some prostitutes(?) into coming to a “party” and seeing Henry as a handsome young man so that he can feed on them and heal. Things get creepy, though, when the glamour on one of them slips and she freaks out. Then the other one wakes up and, while Aidan accidentally kills one girl …

Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.08: I’ve Got You Under Your Skin

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: Sally grows increasingly tense as her few last hours turn into days and then a week. When the Reaper finally shows up, he has a bizarre offer for her – take over his job as a Reaper. Sally isn’t at all sure how she feels about this, since her previous experiences of seeing ghosts killed forever have been traumatic. She consults with two of the three killers that she knows, Aidan and Stevie. …

Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.05: Addicted to Love

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: Sally’s possession of cute Dr. Forrest’s girlfriend, Janet, turns out not to be a one-time thing. She keeps doing it, right up through sex all night and a sweet morning after. When she leaves, Janet wakes up with a pleasant afterglow and not much memory of the night before. For a while, that’s okay, but two things are harshing Sally’s mellow. One is that she’s developing a crush on the good doc, herself. …

Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.02: Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: We have the usual tripartite plot this week. First, unsurprisingly, Heggeman doesn’t manage to kill Josh. Instead, a fully turned Nora jumps Heggeman and tears him to shreds in front of Josh, who sees most of it before he turns. They later wake up in separate parts of the woods and meet up on Josh’s doorstep. Nora unwisely decides to remain in denial and goes to work, while Josh, in equal denial, persuades …

Recap and Review: Being Human (Syfy) 2.01: Turn This Mother Out

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: It’s a month later in supernatural Boston. Josh reapplies to medical school (as you do, after having turned into a werewolf in front of your pregnant girlfriend). In his personal life, he’s confused by Nora’s sudden interest in trying to talk to Sally (whom she can’t see, of course) and supporting him in all things werewolf. He doesn’t know that she’s been scratched and is quietly freaking out about it. But he sure …

Review: Being Human (Syfy) 1.13: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Me Killing You

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers, of course]

Recap: Josh and Sally take a (mortally?) wounded Aidan to Josh’s basement sanctuary at the hospital. There, Aidan enlists Nora in helping them. At first, she wants to rush in a medical team and he persuades her, instead, to bring only whole blood. It’s not enough, but there don’t seem to be any donors to bring Aidan back to full health by draining their lifeforce dry. Not until Celene comes down to the …
