Open Thread: Being Human – That Time of the Month

Bloody Good Fun

In which we discuss menstruation. 

When I saw the new episode of Syfy’s Being Human was “That Time of the Month” I assumed it was a humorous way of discussing our resident werewolf problem. Oh no. They meant it literally. Let us know what you liked and didn’t like in the episode. A few possible talking points:

  • Sally flying fast and loose with powers she doesn’t comprehend.
  • Bishop “saved” Susanna!
  • Wow, a rare vampire story that actually references menstruation! Also, they probably should have asked Nora to start on that project sooner.
  • Why exactly is Sally seeing the past?
  • Josh having a second birth from inside a werewolf. Delightful.
  • Oops, Sally wasn’t finished.
  • Susanna has some serious issues. Warranted of course.
  • Bishop told her he wasn’t worthy.
  • Aidan actually opting for an “ordinary” life with Kat, and saying I love you, after only a short time with Susanna.
