Being Human US Season 3 Episodes 1 & 2

Being Human US Season 3 Episodes 1 & 2

So I love, love, love this show. I missed the first episode last week and had to watch it online and OMG. It was an emotional roller-coaster.

So a little introduction to the series (For those who have no idea about this show). The show follows three people, well sort of people. There's Josh who is a werewolf, Aidan a vampire and Sally a ghost. Josh and Aidan work at a hospital together (I know weird right?) when they decide that they want to live as human as possible so they get a place together. Well this place is haunted by Sally who used to live there with her fiance, well before she was killed.

This is the Season 1 Promo which gives you an idea about the show:

Now let's talk about Season 3. Well it's opened with a bang, a big bang :)



Okay don't say I didn't warn you

Episode 1 It's a Shame About Ray

Well fifteen months have gone by. Josh is human, Sally's gone to Limbo and Aidan is buried six feet under. We find out that Josh and Nora (who is still a werewolf) have spent the last fifteen months trying to find Aidan by interrogating vampires and also trying to bring Sally back from Limbo. Finally after meeting a psychic they get sent to a witch. She tells them that she can bring Sally back but it won't be Sally the ghost, it will be bringing her back from the dead completely. The witch gives Josh and Nora a list of supplies she needs, she needs the heart of someone Josh killed (that would be Ray {the guy that turned Josh into a werewolf} his heart) and she needed Sally's body. So Josh and Nora take off with their shovels in tow and dig up two bodies and ripping the heart from one. After giving the witch all the ingredients she begins to work her magic and after what she calls throwing the line to Sally in Limbo they wait for Sally to catch the line. After a little bit Sally does but she brings two guests with her. At the end Sally wakes up and tells Josh that she brought Stevie and Nick back with her. Now to Aidan who has been buried underground this whole time, well someone finally digs him out. This is a human who sets Aidan up in a basement and begins to drain the small remaining drops of blood out of him because during those months that Aidan was buried the vampires caught a disease and they were all dying off and since Aidan hasn't been tainted with that disease his blood is worth money. He is eventually rescued by one of Amish brothers and he feeds on Aidan but the disease ends up killing him while on the road and crashing the vehicle causing Aidan to fly out the front windshield. He laid there saying over and over again that he was not going to die but at the very end when he completely stopped moving he came back holding himself to his word of not dying. 
Great season opener!!!!

Episode 2 (Dead) Girls Just Want to Have Fun

The episode starts with seeing Sally, Stevie, Nick, Nick's girlfriend and Josh talking. We find out that after Sally woke up and after she told Josh about bringing Stevie and Nick with her so they had to go out and perform the same ritual on their bodies like they had to do with Sally. Stevie goes off on his own and Nick goes off with his girlfriend after being warned to stay away from people from their past. Aidan finally makes it to a phone and calls Josh and they go to bring Aidan who is starving home. Aidan seems off but he's back and that's all they care about. Sally who has been without an actually physical body for so long can't wait to get out to do anything so she talks Josh into going out as Nora locks herself into their changing storage room for her change tonight. At the bar someone from Sally's past shows up and recognizes her and after making something up she decides on bailing with this guy as Josh heads home. Aidan goes out to feed but since almost all the humans are tainted Aidan got setup by some werewolves but he gets rescued by an old friend. This old friend seems happy in his new life but all isn't what it seems. Sally who didn't do anything more than kissing this person from her past comes skipping down the stairs to find Josh who was sitting there all night. He tells her that he's ready to propose to Nora and as he started getting ready to go they hear police cars outside so run to check it out and see Sally's friend dead. After putting two and two together they realize that he died because Sally kissed him. Oh my.

Can't wait until next week!!

Dates To Remember For 2013

Dates To Remember For 2013

So I was sifting through the Geek Board Pins on Pinterest and came across this gem. This picture lists off possibly every good movie coming out this year (you may disagree with some of them, well I do).

For me I will list the movies I want to see: 

Warm Bodies 
Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer & John Malkovich
After a zombie becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims, their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world. IMDB

World War Z 
Brad Pitt
A U.N. employee is racing against time and fate, as he travels the world trying to stop the outbreak of a deadly Zombie pandemic. IMDB
(PS Brad Pitt + Zombies = Hell Ya)

Fast & Furious 6 
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker
Just another Fast & Furious movie. The last two have been awesome so if they bring back what they did in those last couple movies it should be great.

The Host 
Saorise Ronan, Diane Kruger
A parasitic alien soul is injected into the body of Melanie Stryder. Instead of carrying out her race's mission of taking over the Earth, "Wanda" (as she comes to be called) forms a bond with her host and sets out to aid other free humans. IMDB
(I have read this book and recommend that anybody who wants to see this movie please, please read the book first)

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 
Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan
The Dwarves, Bilbo and Gandalf have successfully escaped the Misty Mountains, and Bilbo has gained the One Ring. They all continue their journey to get their gold back from the Dragon, Smaug.
(I have watched the first Hobbit movie and I'm a fan of The Lord of the Rings movies so I will check this one out)

Star Trek: Into Darkness 
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. IMDB
(I really enjoyed the first one except I found it a little long but other than that awesome special effects. Can't wait)

Vin Diesel
Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick's past. IMDB
(I have liked the other Riddick movies - Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick - plus this one starts off right after The Chronicles of Riddick left off so can't wait.

Man of Steel 
Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe
An alien infant is raised on Earth, and grows up with superhuman abilities. He sets out to use these abilities to guard his adopted world. IMDB
(So another take on Superman, let's hope it's better than their last attempt)

Iron Man 3 
Robert Downey Jr, Gwenth Paltrow
Marvel's "Iron Man 3" pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds (Mandarin). When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. IMDB
(Iron Man 3, yes please. I've seen the trailer for it and amazing, I can't wait.)

Kick Ass 2 
Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows. IMDB
(I enjoyed the first one so let's see)

Hangover Part 3 
Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifiankis
This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off. IMDB
(This one I'm unsure about because the first one was hilarious, the second on was okay and the third, I don't know, maybe I'll wait for video)

GI Joe Retaliation 
Channing Tatum, The Rock
The G.I. Joe's are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. IMDB
(It took me a long time to even admit that I found the first one to be enjoyable but I found myself watching it every time it came on TV so again even though I don't want to admit it I'm kind of excited for the second one but I'm a little uneasy since they pushed it back from last summer to this March, hmmm, that's strange)

The Mortal Instruments 
City of Bones - Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower
When her mom is attacked and taken from their home in New York City by a demon, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl, Clary Fray, finds out truths about her past and bloodline on her quest to get her back, that changes her entire life. IMDB
(Again this is a similar one to the host, not the plot but as in you should read the book first. This is actually one of my favorite young adult series and I recommend anyone who enjoys a good read to check these books out by Cassandra Clare.)

Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Christopher Eccelston
Thor battles an ancient race of Dark Elves led by the vengeful Malekith who threatens to plunge the universe back into darkness after the events of The Avengers. IMDB
(Okay so I'm excited for this because of a couple different reasons. First is I love Thor and The Avengers so that's number one of why I'm excited and number two is Christopher Eccleston is going to be in it and he played the ninth doctor on Doctor Who, which is one of my favorite shows)

The Wolverine 
Hugh Jackman
Wolverine travels to Japan to train with a samurai warrior. IMDB
(Okay so I'm pumped for this because I love the X-Men movies plus Hugh Jackman as Wolvernine, swoon.)

RED 2 
Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren
Frank Moses and his motley crew of retired assassins return for a second outing. IMDB
(I love, love, love the first movie and I have a girl crush on Helen Mirren, she's just so fabulous. Can't wait.)

Well I know I do a lot of paranormal and supernatural stuff on this site but I am a very diverse movie lover (except westerns and very sappy chick flicks, can't do it). So I hope everybody who checks this post out agrees with my pics or disagrees. If I've missed any other potential movies of 2013 please leave a comment and I'll add them.

Supernatural Season 8 Episodes 6-9

Supernatural Season 8 Episodes 6-9

Okay Recap of episodes 6-9 of my lovely Winchester Boys :)

Episode 6 - Southern Comfort

Sam and Dean team up with Garth, who has taken over Bobby's job as the Hunter go to guy, as they hunt down a Specter that's possessing innocent people who have a grudge against someone.
It was kind of sad seeing Garth taking over Bobby's job but someone had to do it since Dean was in purgatory and Sam was playing house with the vet.

Episode 7 - A Little Slice of Kevin

Sam and Dean are surprised to discover that Castiel has escaped from Purgatory, but doesn't remember how. Meanwhile, Kevin and his mother turn to a witch for help against Crowley but she betrays them to the King of Hell.
I'm so happy that Castiel is back because I love him and all the lovely awkward things he says sometimes.

Episode 8 - Hunteri Heroici

Now since Castiel is back and now that he has decided on becoming a hunter Sam and Dean take on a case with Castiel. Castiel who has his own ways of trying to figure out what happened Sam and Dean realize they are dealing with someone from their past who has special abilities. However, they discover that the murder is only the latest in a string of cartoon deaths.
This was a neat episode seeing things like a heart beating through at chest, or someone being crushed by an anvil. Plus seeing Castiel interrogating a cat was also pretty funny.

Episode 9 - Citizen Fang

Sam, who doesn't trust Dean's friend Benny the vampire, asks a friend, hunter Martin Creaser, to track Benny just to be on the safe side. However, when Martin gets word of a vampire kill in Benny's neighborhood, he takes things into his own hands, forcing Dean to make a tough choice. Who is he going to pick? Benny, his friend from purgatory or Martin, a long time hunter ally?

Well Supernatural is back tonight so more to follow my fellow Winchester lovers

The episode opens to the morning after Damon and Elena finally hook up. When Stefan confronts Damon about Elena being sired to him Damon has no choice but to help Stefan investigate.

Sorry :(

Okay so first I want to say sorry to my blog for kind of forgetting about you. Well it's not that I forgot about you it's that I've been busy. Second I want to say sorry to all the peeps out there checking out my blog, I'm sorry that I haven't been keeping it up to date.
I've been finishing up my third book in The Lilly Reed Series called Shattered, making it all pretty and ready for the fans of The Lilly Reed Series. Plus I've been taking on more at work and I just haven't found time. Hell it even took me awhile to get up to date on my favourite shows like The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, and my new favourite show Dr Who (Love, love, love it).
So again a big sorry and I hope that I don't get distracted again :P
