Quick Thoughts: BEING HUMAN, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Die"

While I still think Season 3 of Being Human has gotten off on the right foot, I do have to admit that "I'm So Lonesome I Could Die" had me torn for the first time.

For example, I'm glad to see that Josh and Nora have created a life outside of Aidan and Sally, and I'm actually liking the addition of Erin for now, but giving her stereotypical family issues didn't resonate and it felt like a cheap shortcut that way too many shows utilize nowadays. I'm always up for getting more backstory, but retreading the same old stuff isn't enough to get me on board. Same goes for Erin running away.

As for Aidan and Sally, I'm still intrigued by how they're adjusting to their new situations, and I'm happy that the writers found a way to keep her in Boston while finally putting her firmly in the morgue guy's orbit (because we knew both events were going to happen). Aidan's guilt trip may have been a tad over-dramatic, but he needed to give Sally an excuse to straddle him while holding a phallic shaped object right before he showed her where his heart was. Seriously, the idea of these two together gets me all upset.

So, we got some good stuff along with some contrived, clichéd stuff, which combined for a decent enough episode but not one that trancended the one before it. Instead of a step forward or backward, "Lonesone" was a solid shuffle step, which isn't the end of the world.
