Well, no, it's a premiere, not a pilot.TIVO_GUY_HERE said:k, but what did ya really think about it? geeez
It's a pilot, I will give it a few more episodes.
Which is especially ironic since it's Sophia Myles, who did the exact same thing so much better in Doctor Who (The Girl in the Fireplace)...dtle said:Doesn't it seem kinda creepy the writers are setting up a romance between him and someone he watched grew up from a little girl?

I never heard of these shows, Going to check them out.dswallow said:Blood Ties.
+1 on the driving thing. I had to pause to chuckle and then I realized this wasn't meant to be campy, it was just bad. Worst driving scence since Dan Tanna tooled around Vegas!LoadStar said:To paraphrase a book by Roger Ebert, I Hated, Hated, HATED this show. There was absolutely nothing redeemable about it.
The writing was horrific, completely unnatural. Sophia Myles was seemingly more worried about her accent than her acting. Jason Dohring walked around this episode like he had a pole jammed up... ahem. Alex O'Loughlin has no demonstrable acting ability whatsoever. They destroyed just about everything in vampire mythology that was particularly interesting.
I laughed my butt off during the "driving" scenes... I've seen more realistic "driving" on the crappy movies they have on MST3K.... and of course, this was hilarious since the "suspenseful" ending involved a driving scene.
In case it's a surprise, I will not be watching again.
Yeah, it wasn't nearly like this. Just about everything about the show was ditched before the show started; the entire cast originally assigned to the production package were let go, except for the lead actor. A new showrunner was brought in for the show, David Greenwalt (of "Angel" fame).phox_mulder said:Have to give the show more than 3 episodes before we decide.
No pilot produced, just a general idea pitched by someone.
1st episode was written and produced by team 1, then they quit.
2nd episode was written and produced by team 2, then they quit.
3rd episode was written and produced by team 3, and I think they are still with it.
I really didn't want to research the names of the teams, thus the generic team 1, team 2, etc.
I also could be exagerating the number of teams for effect, I don't pay that much attention to "show runners" and all that, just heard this show had some problems out of the gate.
First thing I thought was forever knight meets csidtle said:What a Forever Knight rip-off!! You got a vampire named Mick/Nick, who drives a corvette and solves crime with the help of a morgue worker, and has flashbacks of his life.
Ya mean the one set to a song by Celine Dion?lodica1967 said:I saw a great commercial/music video for it and it looked like my kind of show.
Yes! Blood Ties! This show is as close to a complete rip-off of a syndicated series as I've ever seen.dswallow said:It reminded me of a big-network attempt to duplicate the success of Blood Ties.
I found it generally entertaining; certainly not anything to wait around for or get all upset if you miss one week.
