Character Development needs work
on February 7, 2013
Having read through the rest of the reviews, I can say that I agree with most of what was written and so shall not expand on the positive parts of the show. However, I had to dock the show a couple of stars for lack of character development.
To explain my reasoning: Josh and Sally in particular have not developed at all (in my opinion) during all 3 seasons. I find myself gritting my teeth like a mother with two 3-year old kids in the house who just cant seem to quiet down for a minute. Sally still has the bad habit of wanting to toss her *fairly petty* problems onto Josh and Aidan, many times without reading the mood because both of them come home in a shabby state usually just having passed through a horrible experience. I find her lack of empathy disturbing. Josh - well what can I say about Josh.. He has 1 day a month when he turns. Listening to him go on and on about being a werewolf.. blah blah blah blah blah. He still hasn't gotten to the point where he can say "I have a rental box to change in, everything's fine." Aidan has to fight his thirst every day of the damn year, yet Josh and Sally seem oblivious to it, depending on him for (far too much) emotional support. Also, listening to Josh lay on the guilt trip when Aidan slips up and turns or kills a human.. He's a VAMPIRE. A true friend would help clean up the mess.
I would have given this more stars, had Josh and Sally grown up a little from the pity party they are throwing themselves. Listening to Josh go on and on with his panic attacks while trying to revive Sally.. Oh please, just SHUT UP already so she can cast the damn spell.
