If you love vampires and wonder what it would be like if vampires walked among us, undetected, in modern-day L.A., you should give Moonlight a try. This show has it all~ action/suspense, drama, romance and plenty of humor. The writing is impressive, and the cast is superb, from O'Loughlin in the lead role to Sophia Myles, Jason Dohring and Shannyn Sossamon. Moonlight is a classic in the making....don't miss it!
While the 'vampire detective' theme, along with many other vampire concepts, has been done before, none have been done with such a twist as this. "Moonlight" has taken the vampire theme to another level in its story line by resetting the vamp rules .. stake in the heart only paralyzes them, they can tolerate sunlight for a short time, they don't sleep in coffins - they sleep in freezers, holy water doesn't turn them into a sputtering heap of ash. At the beginning of episode one, our hero Mick StJohn does a similated 'interview with a vampire' that gives a basic explanation of the premise of this show's basic vamp do's and don't's which 'sets the stage' quite nicely.
Beyond that, the charisma of the main characters, Alex O'Loughlin, Sophia Myles and Jason Dohring, gives the show an appeal that is unmatched anywhwere. The chemestry between Alex and Sophia on screen is beautiful to watch and keeps one wanting more and more. The lighting, sets, special effects and music are exceptional. All of these elements bring together a mesmerizing saga that keeps one glued to the television for every minute of each episode and leaves one wanting the next episode NOW!
Many have tried to compare "Moonlight" to other vamp shows, but there IS no comparison. This one is unique in its concept and delivery, and should be viewed with an open mind, leaving behind the old concepts to embrace this new and exciting way of seeing, hearing and feeling the New Vamp In Town.
Jason Dohring practically dripped irresistible bad boy arrogance but still managed to soften it with a reluctant vulnerability (Especially in the episode Sleeping Beauty.)that only hightened his appeal, and Sophia Myles had a great spunkiness that woked to keep Beth from becoming just another damsel in distress. (Not to mention that she's ridiculously beautiful.)
The storyline was exciting, romantic, and angst-ridden.. but with enough light moments to keep it from going too dark. Direction and lighting managed to pull of an old school noir vibe while still looking slick and modern. And the sets... gorgeous! Mick's apartment was awesome... and I still want to steal that massive built-in black bookcase and his crystal fireplace.
So I'm not giving this DVD set 3-stars due to any fault of the actual show. (I loved the show and am still stubbornly boycotting the network for canceling it just because I dig the whole passive-aggressive rebellion thing.) No, this is a review of the DVD set.. and the dvd set is a major letdown due to the criminal lack of anything beyond a scene selection option.
I mean come on! There must have been 20 internet quick spots released, music montages, a great "An Interview With The Vampire" extension of the introduction scene from episode one, lots of cast interviews... even a walkthrough of Mick's apartment with all sorts of neat facts on the set design.
