Editorial Reviews

Against her better judgment, Private Investigator Vicki Nelson teams up with Henry Fitzroy, former Duke of Richmond, cutting-edge graphic novelist and 470 year old vampire in investigating odd crimes around the city. The relationship soon progress beyond a purely professional arrangement, complicating her long-term love affair with ex-partner Detective Mike Celluci - and pretty well everything else in her life.

Customer Reviews

It's both witty and funny and full of action and a bit of romance too...great all around.

And one of the better vampire stories to emerge from the crypt is "Blood Ties: The Complete Series," a too-brief show based on Tanya Huff's urban fantasy series.
E. A Solinas
The three actors did a fantastic job of portraying the three main characters in this show.

Vampires are very hot right now -- the bestselling "Twilight" series, the hit TV show "True Blood," and the tragically cancelled "Moonlight."

And one of the better vampire stories to emerge from the crypt is "Blood Ties: The Complete Series," a too-brief show based on Tanya Huff's urban fantasy series. The series has a slightly slow start, but it's a solid action/fantasy series with plenty of sensual romance, gritty crime, and supernatural spookery -- and the trio of main actors are simply brilliant.

On her way back from a date, PI Vicki Nelson (Christina Cox) sees a caped figure attack and kill a young man -- leaving the body drained of blood. The victim's girlfriend hires Vicki to find the culprit. But as Vicki starts prodding around goth clubs and alleyways, she encounters the mysterious Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid) who is doing his own murder investigation on the same case.

Turns out Henry is also a sexy 500-year-old vampire, and the bastard son of Henry VII. Together they have to find a creepy demon-summoner, before something far worse is unleashed. And soon she has to deal with a lot of other supernatural problems, with the help of Henry and her former partner Mike (Dylan Neal), who loathe one another.

Among the problems: voodoo priest and his zombies, time loops, an Incan mummy, a murderous "imaginary friend," a heart-crushing Celtic ghost, a suburban incubi, a man-eating Wendigo, creepy art crimes, a Goth club plagued by supernatural drugs, Egyptian gods, a Medusa, a fertility clinic that produces eerie results, Henry's ex-lover/vampire-mother, and an immortal priest with an unending vendetta against Henry. Worst of all, they must grapple with the creepy demon-summoner and his evil master...

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is a review of the actual product for Blood Ties: The Complete Series [Blu-ray], not the series itself (though I enjoyed it very much). This is NOT a review of the Blood Ties TV movie from 1991.

Blood Ties: The Complete Series on Blu-ray is presented in Widescreen (1.78:1) 1080 High Definition (HD), not 1.33:1 Standard Definition (SD) letterbox like the separate Season One and Season Two DVD releases. (The format info on the back of the Blu-ray box is incorrect.)

Features:

Twenty-two episodes on four discs (HD)

24-minute Behind the Scenes featurette (SD)

Three-minute Series trailer (SD)

32-second Season 1 DVD trailer (SD)

Five-minute photo gallery (HD, about 30 pictures, including production stills, art and Blood Price covers.)

Two-channel DTS (Stereo) for each episode, but no commentaries (subtract one star from rating) or alternate language dubbing.

Optional English subtitles.

Eight-page booklet with synopses of each episode.

Verdict: This Blu-ray release is superior to the DVD, and a much better deal, too! Most TV series are now produced in HD, but they are usually released on inferior DVD's instead of Blu-ray (Moonlight, Castle, Legend of the Seeker, The Mentalist, etc.) This release is a rarity. If you watch TV shows broadcast in HD, as I do, and you want to see them released in an HD format also, then buy this series on Blu-ray.

Vampires are all the rage on the small screen. Just look at recent entries Moonlight - The Complete Series, True Blood: The Complete First Season (HBO Series), or the CW's "The Vampire Diaries."

Blood Ties is a Canadian TV production that was filmed as a 22-episode season. In the US, Lifetime TV decided to split was was actually one season into two, with the first eleven episodes ("Blood Price" to "Post Partum") as Season One and the remaining eleven ("Norman" to "Deep Dark") as Season Two. This box set collects all 22 episodes for the first time in North America (the British box set that was released several years ago features all 22 episodes, but no extras). The TV budget doesn't allow top-notch special effects, but the show really works with what it has (the set designs are great, but the CGI is largely lacking), and its strength is in the writing and performances.

Blood Ties revolves around Victoria "Vicki" Nelson, an ex-cop with Toronto's Metro police. Vicki was forced to resign due to a degenerative eye disease, retinitis pigmentosa, and is trying to make a living as a private investigator. Her fiery romance with fellow cop Mike Celluci is an on-again, off-again affair, and her first case as a PI gives her more than she bargained for: someone is summoning demonic forces, and Henry Fitzroy, her new partner on the case, just happens to be a 480-year-old vampire and is the illegitimate son of Henry VIII.

So there is (was) this little show that could, called "Blood Ties". Some of you may have heard of or even seen it?

It is/was about this former homicide detective Vicki Nelson (Christina Cox), who, due to her failing eye sight, has to quit the force, and in turn she opens her own PI agency.

However, her world changes significantly one night, after she witnesses something supernatural and then her subsequent meeting of the almost 500 yr old [450 to be exact] vampire named Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid), [...] son of King Henry the VIII.

Soon they develop not only a friendship , but also a partnership , as they work to confront the things that go bump in the night.

And with the way most good stories go, Vicki must deal, not only with her attraction towards Henry, but with her on again off again relationship with her former homicide detective partner Mike Celluci (Dylan Neal).

"Blood Ties" is (was) a smartly written, well acted TV show, that highlighted wonderful chemistry between its' actors characters with witty dialogue and great (sexual) tension.

It is a great pity that this show was staked before it's time, thus limiting its undead life to only one season, and with the current influx of vamp shows on the TV market, it would have been nice to have this Canadian gem in the rough!
