Finally!!! (A Being Human 3x03 and 3x02 Reaction Post)  
Man am I loving Being Human right now! <3333  It's so nice to be so excited about and pleased by the show, after all the disappointment last season....

So first of all, here is my spoilery reaction to 3x03, which I only saw the second half of because of stream issues, but whatever, it was great to see it live, and I loved what I saw...

OMG!!!!!  :D <333333  They KISSSSSED!  Not once, but TWIIIIICE! ;)  I love that he went back for more...:D



NGL, I think I was a bit more utterly ecstatic at the twirly reunion hug, with that epic music and all, and because unlike the kiss that was TOTALLY UNEXPECTED AND SURPASSED MY WILDEST DREAMS, but still, I definitely clapped and squealed out loud when it happened! :p  This was me:



(Lol, my new favorite gif, should come in handy many a time! ;))

The only thing I disliked was the stupid ominous notebook at the end, ruining the ~mood a bit....BUT OH WELL.  BECAUSE MITCHELL WAS GOING TO COME CLEAN TO HER!!!  This made me SO happy, because that was one of my worries/reservations, him hiding that....I was SO proud of him that he was finally ready to tell her about it, of his OWN accord (I mean as opposed to "they find stuff and he admits to it because he's caught"), and I also love that she basically said "you don't need to tell me, I know."  I mean, she probably doesn't realize how recent this past was, but still, she told him she UNDERSTANDS that he has killed a lot of people, what he is capable of, but loves the man he has become, and that he can be--THIS IS IMPORTANT GUYS!  She is not quite as innocent about him as a lot of people seem to think....she knows and accepts him all the same (just like Cordy accepted that Angel was a vampire and had had done terrible things in the past--hell, she had known him when he was evil--but still loved him for the man he was now, and could be, sins and all).

"That’s the man I know. That’s the man I trust… And, that’s the man I want."
"Do you forgive me?"

Gah, I can't even....*flails some more*

I loved the rest of (what I saw) of the epp as well, Sasha's story turned out to be really touching and sad, I loved how she and Annie became true friends (and how Mitchell comforted her with a hug when Sasha began deteriorating, knowing she needed one! ;)), how she inspired Annie to seize the day with Mitchell, and Nina to go ahead and have the baby (that scene with George at the end--"Would you like to have a little...hairy baby with me?" Dawwww!).  Also loved the girls' night out with Annie and Nina, and Mitchell and George getting pissed at home, more OT4-member-together time besides Mitchell/Annie and George/Nina yay....

I was so shocked about Nina's past with her mother, poor girl! :(  It was kind of a neat twist, that it wasn't just the wolf stuff she was worried about as far as being pregnant (not a twist I was shocked about though, that she WAS pregnant, so not upset about that being spoiled while coming in for the second half).  I hope it goes okay, I really do, she and George deserve it...Also speaking of George, loved his "Or just maybe your friendship could become something else, something better"--you go George! :D  I'm glad he seems supportive of them as a couple, makes me happy, that he doesn't feel left out or upset about it or anything (another possible problem with A/M sidestepped!).

Oh and LMAO at the "Stop being so deadist!"  "It's like racist but for dead people!" thing, best lines of the night! :p You anti-dentite bastard!  Gotta love Annie...(And also loved her other encounters with Mitchell, like in the kitchen, so awkward and cute, him leaning in...*sighs happily*).  I also love that (it seems) Sasha happened as a consequence of Mitchell bringing Annie back from purgatory--that there are more repercussions of that then it seemed at first, not all good...will be interested to see if more crop up later!

The one thing I was meh about was Mitchell's stalker, I wish he'd staked him earlier, so glad when he finally did!  Though the fist-bump was cute.  Glad Mitchell seemed broken up by it though, he does feel and stuff.  But yeah, I'll dl it tomorrow to watch it in full...definitely rewatching the end a few times! ;)

Anyway, I need picspams, more gifs, new fanvids with this footage (love how we get great new footage each week!), icons, the works! :D

And then here are my thoughts on 3x02, lol, since I was very fail in posting this week, oops! O_o

So first off, are they going to play that lovely "A Wonderful Thing" piece of music during every previously recap then?  If so, I am very pleased, just makes the epic recaps that much more epic! :D

But yeah, wow, another fantastic episode, this season is really on a roll! :D  I thoroughly enjoyed this episode...I mean, obviously it was not as epic as last week (but that's to be expected), but on the other hand unlike last week there were no parts I found to be utterly uninteresting--I actually loved Adam's storyline, in that I've wanted to see a vampire whose family actually sticks with the kid and accepts who they are (and help them survive), because they love them so much--you never really see such a situation, usually the kids leave soon after they get turned. I did think of the little kid Mitchell turned (SUCH a bad idea), but that was a bit different, not quite the situation I was most interested in since the mother was behind the decision to vamp him all along. I actually loved the movie Let the Right One In so much in part because I *thought* this was the case there as well (before I learned that the old dude with the girl was just a pedophile helping her in exchange for favors, lol, which was a bit disappointing to learn).  So I love both the idea of Adam, and I did enjoy him too in the end, found him to be funny more than annoying.  I might very well try to watch his little spinoff web series Becoming Human...

And what was great about Annie in this epp is that yeah, she was a bit worryingly clingy, but she gives her reason at the end, AND even better, Mitchell tells her off for being so preoccupied with helping other people, for defining herself by other people (re: men), which shows just how DIFFERENT he is from Owen, and the other guys she's dated in the past. He told her exactly what she needed to hear, just as she told him what he needed to hear.  Which I think is evidence of why this pairing will work in the long run.  And they were so adorable in this episode, in the breakfast scene and and when she got him the job, and their little walk on the pier....<3333


(Too adorable, especially the little butt!kick lol...:D)

Plus how cute is Annie here? :p Lol this is kind of how I felt after You Know What in the end of 3x03! ;)



(Both so cute, I love that ~twirling seems to be their new ~thing! ;) )

And he STAYS there for her, saying that nice little bit at the end to Adam....<333  Random note though, why is Annie back to wearing her old clothes? :s  I thought she had changed for good once she came back from purgatory...lol, I don't get her clothing situation at all, especially when she's wearing also a completely new/different dress in 3x03...

Also George and Nina were awesome, I loved them in this epp more than I ever have before, and the plant rescue, LMAO! :p  (Ten's words to Sinead's character (Nina actress) in End of Time Part 2, "worst rescue ever" came to mind, lol).  Mitchell/Annie is still definitely my OTP, but I'm shipping these two hard as well now...

So much better than s2 so far...my one niggling concern is that there could be more OT4 together time, but there has been some good stuff (like the last five minutes of 3x01, lol, and Nina trying to comfort Annie at the beginning of this epp, George and Annie and Nina confronting Adam, etc), and at least two pairs of two together for most of the epp is better than last season's common "everyone separate from one another" fail....I do hope that this season works on this though a bit more!

Memorable quotes:

"Not everyone can say they've been to Hell and back....and actually mean it!"  (Lol Annie, talk to the Winchesters! :p)

"I missed you" <333 (gah the way he said it!)

"Just think of me as your guardian angel!"

"Oh there go my kidneys from my sides splitting!" (Lol Nina, very droll, love it! :D)

"Stop defining yourself by what you do for other people"
(Amen, brother friend, preach it!)

"All I've got is you...you are my life, you give me life." (Love the way she delivers this line, the tone of her voice...and she convinces him to stay! \o/)



"How do I fight it?"
"You surround yourself with good people, that's what you do, find someone better than you"--glance at Annie--"because when you fail, you have to deal with their disappointment, and that's what keeps you true."
<333 (I do think the first bit was about George as well as Annie, even though he glanced at Annie in the second part).

I also have been continuing to watch the US remake of BH, since it did get sooo much more tolerable/better in the second episode...

And it was nice to see it start to deviate more from the original, having a completely different story of the week for Aidan and Josh...though Eyeliner Ghost Douchebag had nothing on Gilbert or Gilbert Fun!



Though Danny also seems much less douchey than Owen was on the other hand....Anyway, I did love that they took the party with the neighborhood and made a new storyline off of that for Aidan and Josh, and Bishop becomes more awesome with each episode, I am glad to have Marksha back on my TV, I must say! :)

Oh and on another note of squee and glory and good news, they're FINALLY releasing a Being Human OST for seasons 1 and 2--about damn time!!!! :D  You can already buy and dl the mp3 here (though I hope it comes to iTunes US soon).  I still wish they could include the Epic Music of Epicness from 3x01, but I'm happy I'll finally be able to get my hands on "A Wonderful Thing", aka the awesome recap music this season. (I've been listening to the preview a lot since I found this, lol).

Lol, well I know about Mitchell and Annie watching the screen at least or whatever, the bits in the trailer...but yes, looking forward to it! :D I just cared most about seeing the kiss though, obv...;)

The kiss was awesome. But the Mitchell/George chat at the beginning was the epic win for me this week. lol Until I rewatch it again anyways! :P

I preferred the twirly hug as well, but it was a lovely (if not slightly eerie) kiss.

Of course now I'm worried that Mitchell ISN'T going to come clean because he tried and Annie answered, "All that matter is the man you are now." SO OF COURSE HE ISN'T GOING TO WANT TO SPOIL IT. Oh, Annie. You should've let him tell the truth! I'm so happy they're together, but at the same time I am scared. I think this might be another doomed ship, bb. D= AND OMG, I FEEL LIKE I'M HARSHING YOUR SQUEE, SO HERE, SOMETHING THAT MADE ME FLAIL:

I really loved when Annie started falling apart over Sasha and Mitchell immediately understood that she was worried about her own life (and, of course, upset about Sasha dying) and pulled her into that lovely, heartbreaking hug.
sherrilina: Mitch/Annie (Being Human)sherrilina on February 7th, 2011 04:07 pm (UTC)
Lol, why do you find the kiss eerie? O_o

LAWL girl, I kind of figured since say, 3x01! ;) Given Lia was encouraging it and obviously didn't have their best interests in heart, and was talking about "the long game" and such....so I realized it's probably going to end in sorrow and angst soon enough then (plus there was Aidan's tone of voice in discussing the ship as well, and some comments he made), but decided to just squee over/enjoy the happy adorable shippy moments while they last! ;) At least they're getting together for a little while it seems...and I'm not sure that it's necessarily d00med for all eternity, I'm hoping that Mitchell will end the series alive (that he'll come back Herrick-style if he does die, god forbid, so Aidan can go film The Hobbit...O_o), and together with Annie, even though they will undoubtedly have angst and problems in the short-term--but while they have major issues they need to each work out, I still think that they have the potential to really work out well in the long term, and that, once all the angst gets resolved, they could very well be together ~forever! <333 I'm still holding out hope for the long-term, in short, and enjoying the shippy moments while I can...;)

And yes, the way he read her then (though what do you mean, she was worried about her own life? :s Is this from the first half of the epp?), knew exactly what she needed, despite her initial protests...gah! <333

And love your icon, I was considering that one, but you can't see Mitchell (or Annie either) well enough! :p
Jennifer: Being Human - Mitchell/Annie calmhmsharmony on February 7th, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC)
Lol, why do you find the kiss eerie? O_o

Because of the juxtaposition with the book. I mean it was sweet at first, but the moment the bag opened... It just felt very creepy. D=

I mean, I knew from 3x01 that it was going to be doomed, but I think it just hit me HOW doomed it is. I'm talking ripping-apart-the-entire-"family" doomed, and that Mitchell and Annie will never find their way back to each other.

Maybe this was just my interpretation, but I thought Annie was so upset over Sasha being denied opportunities "just" because she was dying as it reminded Annie of everything she had missed out on as a result of her own death. IDK. Annie seems to do a lot of projecting in her life.

OMG, I just finished watching it. This was me, the usual big, sappy, emotional person during the last 5-10 minutes:

Not just over the Mitchell/Annie scene, but because GEORGE AND NINA ARE HAVING A BABY :D I love them just as much as Mitchell/Annie, so yeah LOL I'm sure it won't be that simple though. And like I told you earlier, I don't read/watch spoilers of any kind of BH, so I go into every episode having no clue what it's going to be about, so I was VERY shocked when it was revealed she was pregnant LOL

I hated the stalker storyline from the beginning. I was afraid that he was going to last for a few episodes with him blackmailing Mitchell the whole time and I was already getting annoyed at that prospect, so I'm glad he's dead LOL

I also have been continuing to watch the US remake of BH, since it did get sooo much more tolerable/better in the second episode...

You think so? I still can't get into it and it's 3 episodes in LOL I just think I'm waaaay too biased toward the original and I can't make my brain separate them. I love my OT4 way too much and I really hate the way "Sally" is. She just isn't like Annie at all. Oh well.

Lol, I wasn't spoiled about the pregnancy exactly, I just thought it was really obvious that was going to happen, lol, once they had sex while in wolf form....I suspected they'd go there, and then when I saw the bit about him saying "I wish we were normal, Nina" in the promo I figured that's what it'd be about! ;)

Heh, Sally has gotten slightly better I think, a tad less annoying, though still not anywhere near Annie's awesomeness, obviously....IDK, the first episode was just so lame and boring and intolerable, but then episode two just seemed better, production and writing wise and such (maybe because it copied the original more exactly scene by scene, lol?), and then episode 3 had some semi-intriguing different storylines from the original, with the Neighborhood Watch thing. I guess I'm just really interested to see where and when it will deviate from the original, and how, if they'll go the Aidan/Sally route (lol), if Nina will appear or they'll do something else with Josh, etc. And after being meh on him in the first epp I am enjoying Marksha's role now, very Lucifer-like, so there's that too. IDK, I find myself looking forward to it now each week as like, my second BH fix of the week, even if it pales in comparison to the original (I'm just so obsessed with BH period, atm, lol)...can you see what I'm getting at? So the characters are growing on me a little, it's getting a little better, IMO (enough that I can tolerate watching now), and I'm mostly just curious as to where they'll go...

They arrre....I mean, I'm sure it will get angsty and sad soon enough, but for the moment it's beautiful and adorable and perfection! <3333

And yes, Nina/George are also perfect together and quite the pair/team right now! :D I so want Mitchell and Annie can be the godparents/aunt and uncle of the baby!!!

I've been trying for two days and can't get the time to effectively comment on this (I've been much like rushing-out-the-door Mitchell bouncing from one thing to the next) - but ♥ I agree with so much of what you've said and if I find time I shall squee as much in my own journal about the very epicness of this episode.

BTW I am SOOOO thrilled to see a Being Human soundtrack also! I want the actual CD though (I'm old skool like that! haha) so I'll probably wait a bit, but surely that is also the epitomy of epicness considering I've been flailing so long about wanting the soundtrack!
sherrilina: Mitch/Annie (Being Human)sherrilina on February 9th, 2011 02:29 pm (UTC)
Lol, I totally understand, I mean I didn't even get around to posting my 3x02 thoughts before the new epp aired, lol (hence the combination) and I'm late commenting all the time--so never worry when it comes to me! ;) Glad you agree and squeed as well, and hope you find time to squee on your own journal.

And lol, I only get CDs occaisionally these days, usually if it's not available on iTunes (for instance I got the Agora soundtrack on CD because I think (I hope lol) it was only for sale in Spain (so I took advantage and got it! ;)), and same with two other CDs I've bought here in the past (I think in fact that only CDs I've bought of late have all been in Spain only, lol...). And yes, so epic, though if only they could have had the 3x01 Epic Music of Epicness on it, that's my fave! :(
