Last night's TV

.. consisted of the first episode of the new series of Being Human and the Superbowl.

The latter was another enthralling game of inches which I stayed up until the end to watch, while the former was a bit odd in places.

Superbowl: the BBC threesome had a copy of the playsheet from one of the teams from last year's event. It'd be interesting to see the Patriot's defensive one from this year's. How often does 'let them ensure they score a touchdown' appear as a defensive play call, I wonder? Even if when it's the right thing to do.

Being Human: When the use of face protection for one vampire-werewolf killing was mentioned midway through, my ears pricked up. In the previous three series, has there been any mention that werewolf blood is fatal to vampires? Without watching them all again, I don't think so: we've had vampires deliberately setting up werewolf fights without worrying about blood splatter before. So it would have been much better to have had a different way of resolving the fight at the end.

There was also a distinct "I've seen the first two Terminator films and I'm going to use that" feel. Are we going to be treated to time-travelling ghosts? Please no...

Apart from that, it was good but very much an 'establishing a restart' episode.
