Unlike some of the other reviewers, I think the production values and acting in the show were just fine. While I initially had some problems adjusting to Kirk Jones as Blade, I think he improved a lot as the season wore on and was good at conveying Blade's reluctant caring and his gruff exterior. I was especially impressed with Jill Wagner, who plays Kirsta Starr, Blade's spy in the House of Chthon. Wagner was equally convincing wearing a evening gown or kicking butt in blue jeans and a t-shirt. In the first half of the two-hour pilot episode, Wagner wears blue jeans and carries a gun. About halfway through, she shows up at a party wearing a spectacular white dress. Wow. She's a gorgeous gal. Of the series regulars, only Jessica Gower, who plays one of the key vampires, struck me as a little wooden.
I do have some plot issues. Emily Hirst plays Charlotte, a pure-blood vampire, born a vampire instead of being turned like most of the others. Hirst is 13 or so, and her character is supposed to be 200. Do pure blood vampires grow old, maybe at a slower pace than humans? The other pure blood vampires shown in the series are all adults of different ages. I don't really understand the concept.Read more ›
I liked the show. I was pissed it got canceled. It just needed a little more time and a little TLC. Obviously, Spike TV felt it needed more male viewers.
It is NOT. It is the pilot episodes for the series. So if you are getting the DVD of the series, don't get this.
Also be warned that these two episodes or pilot movie has some serious problems with how they are formatted and it appears to be on purpose. While I could get the other episodes to play on my computer and any of the DVD players in our house, the first two episodes, this "movie" would only play on certain machines. Very annoying.
The person who gave two stars stated that the show was cancelled due to bad reviews and fan dislike. Thats pretty much a total lie. The fans loved the show, and the only reason Spike cancelled it was because the sponsor companies were aiming their advertising at men and incidentally there was about as many women watching the show as men. Spike TV is dubbed a mens network, and so many women watching the show was quite unexpected, therefore the ads weren't geared for women.
All alround, this was a real good show. I can only hope the whole series comes out on DVD, and if we're lucky maybe a continuation!
