  • Truth and consequences

    8.0
    The nice thing about British series is the eye towards tight continuity. Shows like "Doctor Who" or "Torchwood" are less the norm than the exception that proves the rule, and even they tend to keep to a central theme or story arc. "Being Human" has found a proper pace this season, and even better, it keeps delivering surprises.



    I mentioned in the review for the season premiere that I was never a fan of Annie, and while this episode didn't change my mind overly much, it did make me care about her fate. I liked the idea that Annie was more corporeal that before, and able to interact on a more meaningful level, and ripping that away from her was particularly harsh. More to the point, it drove home the notion that Annie is no different from Mitchell and George; she, too, must face the consequences of her choice at the end of the first season.



    I really didn't see Nina's breakup with George coming, since they seemed to come to terms with each other at the end of the premiere, but the scenario made sense. And it also gives us a character that we care about that has fallen into the direct crosshairs of the religious organization dedicated to dealing with the supernatural threat (they really need a name, don't they?). While her reasons made sense in the context of George's decisions, it is unfortunate.



    But it does highlight the fact that George is now firmly enmeshed in the fallout within the vampire community. Mitchell and his allies are going to have a problem with Ivan and his faction, I believe, and that makes perfect sense. As I said in relation to "True Blood", when it comes to this sort of premise, I really enjoy seeing how these supernatural species develop societies of their own. I really want to see how the politics of the vampire world play out in "Being Human". (Especially if that means more Daisy!)moreless
  • The Thickening

    9.0
    Annie, after getting a job at a pub now that she can be seen, is warming up to a patron, Saul who may have more to offer her than just a date. George and Nina continue fighting and an old vampire friend who helped Mitchell get off blood many years ago shows up on their doorstep after having just killed someone close to him and Mitchell promises to help. What ensues is a good example of separate storylines as there is a staged death, someone decides to leave, and someone may face a door sooner then they wanted to, the second series is good so far although I would to see more of this Jaggat person, if there really such a person and the old fellow friend isn't just Jaggat himself.moreless
