User Reviews

An examination of what is means to be "human."
15 May 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Though Forever Knight could be summed up in two words--vampire cop--the series itself examined the aspects of humanity, and what it means to be human, through the eyes of a repentant vampire seeking to become mortal again. Geraint Wyn Davies portrays Nick Knight with the perfect balance of menace and innocence, humor and heartache. The supporting characters are well-rounded and adeptly played, particularly Nigel Bennett in the role of Lucien LaCroix, Nick's vampire master, who loves what he is. Father, brother, devil's advocate to Nick's tormented vampire, he exhibits a feline grace and unflappable poise reminiscent of the late Yul Brynner.
