'Being Human' Season 1, Episode 2 Recap

And here we go again with the gloomy.

Before picking up where last week's 'Being Human' cliffhanger left off, we got an interesting cold open that offered a look at our heroes' origins. (Hmmm, I guess we probably shouldn't call them heroes, should we? Antiheroes? No, that seems like a bit of a stretch. How about tortured souls? That sounds good -- oh wait! Do vampires have souls? ... I'll have to think about that one.) The quick flashback scenes were sad, intriguing, somewhat intense and visually interesting. I suppose that description could also sum up the show so far.

Syfy's take on 'Being Human' isn't great TV (yet), but it's not terrible, as some fans of the original U.K. series were predicting. I still wish the show was a little more fun and engaging, but it's a million times better than 'The Cape,' the other genre show that airs at 9PM ET on Monday nights. I know that may not sound like high praise (because 'The Cape' is truly god-awful), but I really do like this show. I still find Josh (Sam Huntington) a little whiney and annoying, and I'm not exactly thrilled about the prospect of watching poor dead Sally (Meaghan Rath) pine over her husband all season, but I'm still hooked on 'Being Human.'
