Suprisingly good episode and it blew me away they were feeding on a woman who was pregnant with twins wow. After killing 3 small children in an episode it seems this show is willing to take some risks. Also I like Sam Huntington and find him less annoying then Russell Tovey and he even makes me laugh on occasion.

I can't really get into Being Human (US) but will continue to watch it but it just feels wrong compared to the original UK version.  You just can't but feel that they are just acting the characters in this version creating a less emotional bond with them, while in the UK version they're not as stone faced, more believeable in their roles and IMO more likable because of it. 

That being said this episode as a whole was pretty good, I know it wouldn't work if they copied the first season of the UK version scene for scene and storyline for storyline but changing it that Nora hasn't been turned into a werewolf by now and becomes preggers after the fact it really doesn't create an emotional situation like it should be between the two.  My other quarm is that Gianpaolo Venuta wasn't a good choice for Danny, he doesn't feel menacing like he should be and this episode really highlighted that for me.

On a positive note the introduction of the Elders was a nice change from the original.  Sarah's version of Rebecca has also been great in this series. 

As long as the writing doesn't go down the poop shoot from here it's going to be a great by series end.
