Quick Thoughts: BEING HUMAN, "When I Think About You I Shred Myself"

I'm just going to get this out of the way; I really did not care for this episode.

Watching Aidan deal with his past transgressions (which I know is what this show's mostly about) has become dull, and I continue to run hot and cold when it comes to Henry. During the last episode, I kind of felt bad for him, but this time around watching him ravage those girls without any skin was just creepy (again, its intended purpose). Even the backstory about how they met was lackluster in my opinion. Just move on already.

Josh's rekindled relationship with Julia was also a mis-step but I figure they had to fill the Nora shaped hole somehow. Also, this recurring theme of possession's starting to lose its punch because everyone can blame it for making bad decisions, but at least we got to briefly see the guy from Undeclared.

Finally, Sally's season long plot too yet another odd turn. Admittedly, I should have liked this whole "Dark Sally" twist, but it felt cheap (a lot like Dark Willow,) and I would have been more entertained by her being a reaper in training than where she ended up. Maybe it's because her character's been all over the place this season, but it's not a good sign when I'm annoyed by Sally and what's she's up to.

I'm by no means writing off Being Human because it can really be a good show when it centers on the bond between the three main characters, and I can see it getting more attention now that Sally's all evil and what not. I just don't need all of the side shows to distract me.
