Being Human 1X13 A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Me Killing You

14 Apr

Well, after just 13 wonderful episodes, the season one of Being Human is over. Before I recap the final episode, I think it’s important to look back at the first episode and the key events of the season.

1X1 There Goes the Neighborhood Part I

In episode 1, we were introduced to our three main characters, Sally the ghost, Aiden the vampire, and Josh the werewolf.

Of course, a great deal of credit has to be given to the BBC considering this show is a remake of the UK’s Being Human, but I am still willing to praise SyFy for finally getting my attention.

So, on this week’s episode of Being Human, we witness the aftermath of Danny’s botched exorcism, Nora has her first ultrasound, Sally finally finds closure, and best of all we get a peek at what Aiden was up to in the 70’s, which was made all the more entertaining by the Aviators (did anyone else notice it was cloudy and snowing?) and out-of-control sideburns. But before we cover any of these story lines in detail or talk about the final scene, I want to discuss Sally’s opening monologue… Continue reading
