Sneak Peak of Season 2

Watch Being Human Season I on Netflix

Late to the party, as usual, I discovered the Syfy Channel’s series “Being Human” last weekend.  I spent the entire day on Saturday watching Season 1 on Netflix, and now I’m hooked and can’t wait for the start of Season 2 tomorrow, January 16th.  Unfortunately, since I no longer have cable, I’ll have to wait until the episodes air on Hulu, but that’s okay. I will definitely be watching.           

“Being Human” is a remake of the British show of the same name, and is about three 20-something roommates, a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost, who share a house in Boston that used to belong to Sally (the ghost) and her fiancĂ© Danny, when she was still alive. Before he pushed her down the stairs and killed her. As fans of Twilight know, vampires and werewolves are not friends, but somehow Aiden (the vampire) and Josh (the werewolf) found each other and forged a friendship, and decided that cohabitation was the way to go. It’s hard being a “monster” alone trying to live in the human world, so moving in together allows the 2 of them to live a somewhat normal home-life with someone who understands their issues. They then met Sally when they moved into her former house, that she is stuck in waiting for “her door” to appear so that she can “move on.” 

What Happened in Season I of Being Human?

A whole lot of stuff happened in Season 1, and I’m not gonna do a play-by-play of every episode, but in a nutshell…The show’s first season chronicles all the trails and tribulations “monsters” living in the everyday world must go through, like Aiden’s occasional slip-ups where he accidentally loses controls and kills someone. Normally he lives on blood he gets from the blood bank at the hospital, where he’s a nurse.  No worries though, his “maker”, Bishop, happens to be a cop and is there  to help clean up any little messes his vampire family members create and dispose of the body and help sweep it under the rug.. Except when he doesn’t dispose of them, and instead turns them into vampires, and they show up unexpectedly and start killing people.  I really loved the relationship being Aiden and Rebecca, and I hate that they killed her off.  I was not at all sad to see Bishop and his weasel side-kick go, but now Aiden will have to clean up his own messes....
