Hal gets a job
20 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the household is getting short of money Annie and Tom tell Hal that he will have to get a job and contribute if he is to stay there. He isn't impressed with this idea but eventually agrees and ends up working in a burger bar with Tom; it is not the way he expected to be spending his time; after all he isn't any old vampire; he is one of The Old Ones! The work is mundane and the people who go there aren't the most interesting people around; even if some like Michaela think they are. She believes that she is 'dark' and will one day be a renowned poet; she does not to be in a burger bar when it is attacked by vampires and only get away alive because she is rescued by another vampire and a werewolf. They manage get back home but when they get there they find Annie preparing to leave with Eve after another warning from Regus. There is of course a problem… the vampires find them and by the time the confrontation is over Michaela's life will never be the same again.

This was a decent episode with just the right mix of frights and laughs. Damien Molony did a fine job as Hal; it was interesting to learn more about his character; it came as quite a surprise when it was revealed that he was one of the Old Ones. I recently saw Mark Williams in 'Hustle' and wasn't too impressed; thankfully he is much better here playing Regus; the scene where he made Annie show him one of her sexual memories was hilarious! Laura Patch's performance as Michaela was pretty good even if the character could be a little annoying at times. I wasn't sure how good this series would be now that Mitchell and George were gone but it has still got what it takes to keep me entertained.
