But that love triangle starts constricting painfully in the second season of "Blood Ties," which finishes the all-too-short horror/mystery series. The plots are solid whodunnits and thrillers that center around strange supernatural beasties and items, and the trio of lead actors are excellent (particularly the striking Kyle Schmid). The one problem is the ending -- it's a big fat "to be continued" that leaves you craving a wrap-up TV movie.
When a wealthy man is brutally killed, Mike (Dylan Neal) knows he has the right suspect, a sneering woman who was at the crime scene. The problem is, the man died from being savaged by a giant cat -- and Mike saw her eyes glow when she was upset. So Vicki (Christina Cox) and Henry (Schmid) start investigating the woman's home and her family -- and uncover an ancient family secret and a tragic loss.
Among the other cases they handle: creepy art and men drowned with oil paint, a mysterious box that sticks Vicki in a time loop, a Goth club being threatened by a strange drug and insect attacks, a gang of truckjackers accidentally let loose an Incan mummy, and a murderer who suddenly changes his story (claiming psychic visions). And Henry unexpectedly seeks Mike's help when another vampire starts killing in his territory... leading to a reunion with the slinky Christina, his ex-lover/vampire-mother, who's got a nasty problem that is more than it seems.
Unfortunately, all this supernatural stuff is slowly crumbling away Mike's professional credibility, and the relationship between the three of them is getting increasingly tense.Read more ›
1) There were 22 episodes filmed according to the Internet Movie Database and the Lifetime Network website.
2) In the US and Canada (Region 1), the first twelve episodes are on the "Season One" DVDs and the last 10 episodes are on the "Season Two" DVDs.
3) In the UK (Region 2), all 22 episodes are in one DVD set which is labeled "The Complete First Season." It probably should have been called "The Complete Series."
Other than that, image quality is about the same on the R1 and R2 DVDs. Both R1 and R2 are widescreen even though the R1 DVD case says "4:3 Screen Format." They are also English only and have no subtitles.
The only bonus features on the US (R1) version are the Season One trailer and a photo gallery with 32 still photos. The UK (R2) version has no bonus features.
If you have a multiregion DVD player, the UK version from Amazon UK is a far better deal.
Without a doubt, this exceptional series deserves 6 stars and the studio deserves 0 stars for not selling the complete series in one set for a combined rating of 3 stars.
Henry Fitzroy, the vampire is not just sexy or typical of the vampire genre. He's not evil, nor is he tortured by his "evil nature" like so many vampires. He's "always had a pretty good opinion of himself, and hundreds of years of positive reinforcement."
Michael Celluci, the human detective, and the third person in the love triangle is strong and handsome and very human.
There's a "monster of the week" in every episode, but the show is all about those three and how they deal with each other under difficult circumstances.
