[spoilers ahoy for several seasons]


Tagline: Nobody needed to see Kate from “Bitten” again, but she’s back, anyway, and in an episode that’s All About Her.


Recap: Recap of werewolves showing why they are so full of fail. Then we get a little recap of Dean’s demon storyline, with some emphasis on how dark Sam went to “save” Dean and culminating in Castiel telling Dean to take a vacation.

Cut to a biker bar called “Panheads …

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) 3.01: 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 …

Tagline: While investigating a murder, the brothers discover some found footage about three kids who go mucking about in wolfing out.

Recap: No recap. We start with a room, blood all over the walls, shoes with the feet still in them on the floor, sappy music on the stereo (Apparently, it’s “What’s the Matter” by Milo Greene). Gotta say that the music in this one is very CW-y and I don’t …

Recap and Review: Lost Girl 2.05: BrotherFae of the Wolves

By Paula R. Stiles

[spoilers ahoy]

Recap: The episode starts off with several situations, which I bet means most, if not all, of them will dovetail into one plot toward the end. Anyhoo, it begins with Bo and Kenzi trying to persuade Dyson to help them with the case of an errant husband, who may or may not be missing for real. Dyson is distracted by a scent into an alleyway and attacked by a dark-haired man. When Bo breaks …
