Quick Thoughts: BEING HUMAN, "Ruh-Roh"

After such a strong season, I was expecting Being Human to have a stronger finale than the one we got. Now, I didn't think that "Ruh-Roh" was a bad episode, but it kind of felt like the show having its cake and eating it too because in some ways everyone was back to normal... with a catch.

Aidan's always been the most problematic character on the show because I find it hard to care about him. This season was able to make me like him more, but he quickly got saddled with old trappings like extensive flashbacks that felt pointless up until the final second and him dealing with being a "father." I think we all knew he was going to let Henry, Jr. live and that decision's going to come back to bite him, so it all came off as anti-climactic.

Thankfully, the rest of the gang kept things from getting too familiar, and I thought that the Liam arc came to a decent conclusion although I did like him as the main antagonist of the season. Maybe Being Human will pull a Vampire Diaries/Supernatural and figure out a way to bring him back from the dead. I even thought the twist at the end, having Josh be stuck in his wolf state, was a nice way to liven things up. As for Sally, she's back to being a ghost and dragged to some underworld, but like with Aidan, I found her storyline mixed this time around.

Admittedly, I'm probably nit-picking at this point because there was a lot to like about Season 3 and about this finale in particular, but it wasn't flawless. Maybe I shouldn't have had my expectations so high, but Being Human kind of forced me to with such a strong string of episodes. Regardless, it was fun watching and I can't wait for Season 4.
