SyFy’s Being Human is that rare remake of a British show that actually works. After a stellar first season, the show returns for its second go. I’ll admit that I bailed on the show after the first few episodes of season one. After meeting the cast I owed it to myself to give it another look, now that it’s available on Netflix Instant Watch. It’s a very slow build, but the payoffs at the end of season one are well worth catching up.At the end of season one we were left with several unanswered questions – will Nora become a Werewolf? How will Aidan handle becoming an “Alpha” Vamp after killing his master, and what’s going on with Sally the Ghost?Season two starts off on a good note with Nora (Kristen Hager) and Josh (Sam Huntington) exploring their new relationship and Josh reveling in the fact that Nora seems cool with his being a werewolf. But her incessant questions start to fracture the relationship. At first her questions seem like those anyone might ask, but Josh is still unaware that he bit her, so the entire episode we’re left to wonder if she’ll become one or not. I won’t spoil it for you, but Kristen does a fabulous job conveying her fears. You feel for her plight.Meanwhile Aidan (Sam Witwer) is dealing with becoming an alpha vamp and all that entails – politics, egad politics! He’s forced by the Vampire Queen Mother to mentor her daughter Suren (Dichen Lachman) so that she’ll be able to lead the Boston vamps. There is a lot of history between these two and the Queen Mother is playing on that history to suck Aidan back into the fold. There is no way this ends well.After watching an entire season of Being Human, I still don’t understand what Sam’s issue with being a Vamp is. Sure there’s the eating people thing, but it seems to me the vamps in Being Human have it pretty good – get to walk around in daylight, have a system in place to clean up your messes, get to live (or mope) forever, what’s the downside? I don’t see it.
