Review by Suzanne 11/24/07
This show is about a private eye who also happens to be a
vampire. Mick St. John, the PI, is aided by Beth, a reporter for an
internet news site (yeah, they pay the big bucks I'm sure). Other people
in the cast include his ex-wife, Coraline (AKA Morgan), and his good friend,
another vampire, named Josef, who is hundreds of years old. Mick is still in the
double-digits because he got bit in the 50's.
It's hard not to compare any vampire show like this to Buffy or
Angel, and of course no vampire show is going to be good as those. Those
shows had a brilliant writer who ran the whole thing and made sure it was very
high quality. Moonlight is just a fun and interesting vampire show, but
not the best show you'll ever watch. It will not get you thinking or make you
say, "Wow!" when you're watching it.
It has a fine group of actors (well, the actress who plays
Coraline is not very good, but I'm guessing she was hired for her looks).
Most of the shows have been entertaining, and it often has a film noir sort of
feel to it. Although Mick and Beth seem to be good people, they are not as
goody-goody as you might think. Mick kills vampires when they go rogue and
kill people. He has no qualms about it. Beth is very ambitious.
Josef doesn't mind drinking human blood, although he prefers pretty girls who
seem to give their blood to him willingly. The best thing about this show
is that the characters are not black and white, and it can frequently shock you
with the plot. For those who loves action, there is always plenty of that.
So it's definitely worth tuning in to, but if you don't watch
it, you won't really miss it, either.
