Format: DVD
Blood Ties is a Canadian 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. Blood Ties fans have waited desperately for any news after Lifetime dropped the show like a hot potato despite intensive fan campaigns including blood drives and donations to charities. Their decision to split the show into two is unfortunate from a DVD standpoint; The British Blood Ties box set features all 22 episodes, but the US release features what is essentially half the (only) season. However, there are some excellent episodes here, such as the two-part Heart of Ice / Heart of Fire and the two-part pilot Blood Price. However, where the British set was devoid of extras, the US version will feature behind-the-scenes materials (and there was rumor of a gag/blooper reel mentioned in an interview). The release for Season Two is tentatively scheduled for September 2009; with the popularity of Moonlight - The Complete Series, True Blood: The Complete First Season (HBO Series), and Twilight (Two-Disc Special Edition), sales should be high.

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.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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," a too-brief show based on Tanya Huff's urban fantasy series. The first season has a slightly slow start, but it's a solid action/fantasy series with plenty of sensual romance, gritty crime, and supernatural spookery.

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.

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, a murderous "imaginary friend," a heart-crushing Celtic ghost, a suburban incubi, a man-eating Wendigo, Egyptian gods, a Medusa, a fertility clinic that produces creepy results, the return of creepy demon-summoning dude, and an immortal priest with an unending vendetta against Henry.

"Blood Ties Season One" fits into the same niche as "Moonlight" and "The Dresden Files" -- a detective series with vampires and spooky things, and a human mired in the supernatural.

This is by far the best vampire show out there, ever. Based on the Blood books by the incredibly talented Tanya Huff, it stars Kyle Schimd as Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry the VII that just happens to be a very hot vampire, Christina Cox as Vicki Nelson, one hot former cop turned PI and Dylan Neal as Det. Mike Celluci, Toronto detective and former partner/lover of Vicki. The show is well written, superbly acted and is terribly missed. This is a must buy and fall in love with!!!! You will not be disappointed, it's hot, intriguing and worth watching again and again.

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!

We fans had petitioned for at least a Tv movie to get made, to tie up the loose ends, so we won't be left exsanguinated from the dramatic end that was episode 22! But alas, it has to date, been to no avail.

Nevertheless, "Blood Ties" is definitely worth the watch.

Blood Ties DVD
I just got my DVDs today! The set includes Lifetime's first season, starting with the two-parter Blood Price, and ending with D.O.A. (which was actually the first episode of Lifetime's second season, so go figure!)
