Quick Thoughts: BEING HUMAN, "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Mouth"

Even though I still have some hesitations about this season of Being Human, it's still been a strong start and I've been enjoying pretty much everything that's been thrown our way.

Let's just get the negatives out of the way, if I should even call them that. I still don't see the benefit of human Sally just yet. Sure, we get some adorable scenes involving Meaghan Rath like her eating waffles, but I still think she was more effective as a ghost than in her corporal form. Maybe it's because I'm not loving the ghost whisperiness of her arc, that or I found her story involving the awkward morgue guy... awkward, but I'm not completely on board just yet, which is a shame because I do love Sally.

Thankfully, everything else in this episode worked. I still find Aidan's struggle with living in this new world interesting, and I even liked the bit involving him and the kid's blood, but I could've done without the hot ghosts. Add to that the fact that Liam's manipulating Nora and Josh into killing Aidan, and you have one solid hour of television, especially when it comes to the point where Josh has to pick between his best friend and his girlfriend. I knew Liam was going to be trouble, but I didn't see this twist coming.

So, once Being Human convinces me to care about Human Sally like I did about Ghost Sally, then everything will fall into place and this season could rank up there in the pantheon of great genre television. We'll just have to wait and see.
