Being Human: Episode 2: There Goes the Neighborhood Part 2

updated video!

At the time that I am typing this up (before I go to bed) the SyFy channel has not updated with episode 2 information...which means that I can only give you the sneak peek video for this week. Blah! I wanted to have new images to sprinkle all around the post, but for now I will just give you my thoughts and impressions. And if I can swing it, I'll try to get new pictures up and running tomorrow afternoon. And remember, this recap is not a comparison between the 2 shows.

Thoughts and impressions:

*Rebecca is a piece of work, a truly delicious evil vampire, and I love her for it. Whatever character flaws/issues she possessed in life have definitely jumped to the front of the line in her rebirth. She wants to cause trouble for Aidan because he left her for dead and all, so she figures eternity will give her plenty of time to seek her revenge.

*I feel like the cast and crew have worked really hard to give this show an individual identity, like making Aidan part of the American Revolution. These touches are what I think will make the show a success in its own right.

*This episode gave us our first peek at how these 3 characters were "introduced" to the paranormal life and I was able to make my first emotional connection, especially with Sally. Her story is so tragic and I hope that she gets her closure. I'm also looking forward to seeing all the roommates bloom, struggle, and work at being human.

*Josh and his inability to socialize in any sort of mature way did make me want to duct tape his mouth a few times. He just blurts out nonsense! Reminded me of Sam Witwicky from Transformers.

Best line (as best I remember it anyhow):

*Rebecca to Aidan- I don't take advice from a man that fell of the wagon onto my neck.

Questions for you:

*Do you think that Danny knows Sally is somehow still in the house? Like maybe his logical mind cannot believe in ghosts but his heart sense her in the room?

*Would you consider them to be monsters, even though they didn't ask for what happened to them?

*How do you feel about how Josh handled his sister at the end of the episode?

I turn the floor over to you and I will check back throughout the day to comment. So let's talk!

I am so glad I gave this show a chance. I was all ready to dislike it intensely after comparing the heck out of it with the BBC version.
I love this show on SyFy!

Rebecca is indeed truly deliciously eeee-vil and I can't wait to see what she gets up to next.
Aidan is yummy.

I'm glad you gave the show a chance! I really had to work hard at getting my mindset together before the show premiered because I knew that if I compared the 2 shows I would never be satisfied with the American version at all. They are big shoes indeed but I am liking the vibe of this series so far.

Aidan is definitely growing on me and I found him to be considerably hotter this episode, more vampire-like.

I hope to see you around next week so we can chat about episode 3. It looks to be a good one.

This is a fantastic show. Love it so much after just two weeks! I found this site using my Logitech Revue with Google TV (I'm a DISH customer/employee) and after watching this weeks new ep again off my DVR I decided to switch over to the Internet and see what the ratings were...nice to see it's getting more popular!
