I do have a few complaints though. One is that I only have a few episodes of the series left, and Alison hasn't returned yet. If I don't get a plausible sign that she and Tom are going to live happily ever after together, I will like literally die.
The other is that it just doesn't seem to command my imagination, and I think there's more behind that than my habit of fiddling around with my phone while I watch. (See, I did that a lot during Battlestar Galactica too, and now I wish I hadn't because it needed more of my attention to really perform.) The setting follows tight rules, which is cool in its way but narrows down the possibilities a lot. Everything supernatural that's happened throughout the entire series has had a direct correlation with vampires, werewolves, or ghosts; no deeper mysteries are hiding. The villains are uninteresting and the episode plots all follow the same format.
Someday someone is going to take all the things I like out of cult genre shows and give them the budget and scope of Supernatural or The Vampire Diaries. Until then, I just found out there's one season of a Being Human spinoff out there.
Finished. Hal vs. Tom was a stellar fight scene that I would totally rewatch just for the cheap thrills. I'm a big fan of fight scenes, everything from graceful martial arts displays to blood-soaked shootouts, but hand-to-hand with supernatural strengths and specialized weapons is especially gratifying in context.
There was also the return of Alison to love, but then she was just a vision of the perfect future and didn't appear again at the end to whisk Tom away and promise him a happy life together. On the other hand, the possibility of that happening wasn't ruled out, and...argh no I just wanted to see like five seconds of it for confirmation, why is that so hard? Instead we get a nod to Hal/Alex? Who cares?!
Overall, it kind of seemed like it was trying to be epic and just couldn't get there - the last season's finale did a much better job with that to be honest. Anyway, I've already forgiven the show for what all, so now I just have to put my mind to what to watch next. It will probably disappoint me.
