Review of "Midnight
Texas" 7/30/17 by
Airs Tuesdays on NBC.
I love this show! Its based on some books by Charlaine
Harris. I haven't read this particular series of novels, but
I've read many of hers, and they're always fun to read. This
series is fun as well.
A man who can see and talk to
the dead, on the run from someone, runs to the small Texas
town. His dead grandmother talks to him a lot, and she told
him that he'd be safe there. The small town has a vampire, a
werewolf, a witch and some other supernatural creatures, as
well as humans. The characters are great, and there's a lot
of action. I can't wait to see what happens next!
actor who plays the reluctant hero Manfred (Francois Arnaud)
is gorgeous as well as being a fine actor. He reminds me a
little bit of Michael Raymond-James (Neal in "Once Upon a
Time") and a little bit of Skeet Ulrich (Jake in "Jericho").
All of the cast is fabulous, though.
The town of Midnight
sits on a veil between the living and hell.
supernatural thriller takes a journey into a remote
Texas town called Midnight where nothing is what it
seems. Where being normal is strange and only outsiders
fit in, Midnight is a mysterious safe haven for those
who are different -- a perfect place for anyone looking
to hide from the outside world.
Texas” stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred,
a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with
spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself
with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is
also home to Bobo, proprietor of Midnight’s local pawn
shop (Dylan Bruce, “Orphan Black”); Fiji, a witch who
owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, “Luke
Cage”); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for
every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, “Ballers”); Joe, an
angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets having been
around for millennia (Jason Lewis, “Sex and the City”);
Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight
(Peter Mensah, “True Blood”); Creek, an aspiring writer
with big dreams who learns her family is harboring a
deep secret (Sarah Ramos, “Parenthood”); and Rev. Emilio
Sheehan, who can’t resist the pull of a full moon (Yul
Vazquez, “Captain Phillips”).
As the town
members fight off outside pressures from ever-suspicious
cops, deadly biker gangs, and their own dangerous pasts,
they band together and form an unlikely but strong
family. “Midnight, Texas” is based on the best-selling
book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels
that inspired “True Blood”) and executive produced by
Monica Owusu-Breen (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) and David
Janollari (“Six Feet Under”) and produced by Universal
Television and David Janollari Entertainment.
