Quick Thoughts: BEING HUMAN, "Addicted to Love"

I was really hoping that "Addicted to Love" would finally convince me to go all in on Season 2 of Being Human, but I'm still struggling with some of the storylines. That being said, "Addicted to Love" was a step in the right direction.

At this point, I don't think I'm ever going to fully buy into Aidan as a character because once again he was the low point. The more we learn about the Royals (apparently "Originals" was trademarked), the less I find myself caring. Sure, his history with Suren and his protege was vaguely interesting but it wasn't enough ... yet. I do think that the reemergence of Henry could make things interesting.

As always, I was captivated most by Sally and her possession arc, but I have to admit that seeing her getting it on was a little jarring. It's not like I'm a prude (I do watch Spartacus), but having her be a ghost somehow preserved an innocence about her, so seeing her grinding on some dude in another woman's body took some getting used to. Since the theme of the week was addiction (is this Glee?), watching her struggle with needing her fix and how it's hurting others around her wasn't particularly groundbreaking, but it was still entertaining to watch.

The only story line that I was mixed about what Josh's. I'm glad that the brother and sister wolf duo's sticking around, but I was thrown a little by Nora's actions. I get that her ex made her feel weak, and that that wolf inside of her has given her some power, but having her rip him a part with her two new besties seemed like a giant leap forward. I'm all for pushing the story along, but I felt that her's bypassed a couple of chapters.

Overall, "Addicted to Love" was another suitable entry in the Season 2 catalog. It by no means took the show to another level, but it was still worthy of an hour of my time. Can't complain about that.
