A werewolf, a vampire and a ghost talk about the magic of menstruation

The second episode of Being Human's new season didn't really need to be a whole episode — but that's OK, because it did have this completely batshit insane scene. In which a bunch of supernatural creatures talk about the magic behind the menses. And now we all have to live with that. Spoilers ahead... » 1/21/14 6:00pm 1/21/14 6:00pm

When Being Human is on, it's the best thing ever

Hot damn, it's like the first season of Being Human all over again! This show finally got back to being highly emotional and exceptionally adorable. In last night's episode, each monster's curse catches up with them, and the result is sad but also kind of awesome.

Being Human rediscovers its banter sweet spot

Last night's Being Human was a fantastic return to all things bantery and beautiful. This is the US Being Human we want! All three monsters were given hearty helpings of fantastic dialogue topped by interesting dilemmas. We even liked Aidan's strange new delusions.

Skinless Vampire Sex Parties + Jay Baruchel = The Best Being Human

After two episodes that were 99% supernatural jibber- jabber and vampire politics, Being Human finally returned to the dirty kiddie pool we prefer to splash about it. That is, watching people use their superpowers to get laid (or eat). Because let's be honest, if you were a ghost with nothing better to do who could… » 3/13/12 2:20pm 3/13/12 2:20pm

The big bad twist that reminded us why we love Syfy's Being Human

At first, it seemed like Being Human was dragging a little bit last night. Things weren't matching up quite right, jokes weren't hitting (one Google maps quip hit the floor like a wet sack of cats). But then wizz, bang, ba-da boom — Being Human grabbed our ears and hissed, "Pay Attention You!" And we did. This is why. » 2/28/12 3:59pm 2/28/12 3:59pm
