Storyline

Julian Luna, prince of several disparate vampire, or kindred, clans in San Francisco, has his job cut out for him as he must try to keep a tenuous peace among them while not being afraid to apply ruthless justice against those who would break kindred rules. Infractions that merit "final death" include the taking of human life and changing humans into vampires who have not volunteered for the transformation. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

The show had a lot of potential
22 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this show had a lot of potential. Look at how popular True Blood, Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and all of the other vampire-themed projects have become. I think this could have lasted a few seasons, at least.

But FOX, in all their 'wisdom', were going for a more mainstream audience, with 90210, etc. This show was canceled 9 episodes in (very much like 'Firefly'; I guess FOX doesn't know a good show when it bites them on the... ahem). Showtime was in talks to pick up the show and make new episodes, but the actor playing Julian Luna (Mark Frankel) died in a motorcycle accident, which put an end to the negotiations. Very sad.

Some people who played the game upon which this show was based (Vampire: The Masquerade) didn't like the changes that the show made in the vampire clans and powers; but you always have to change some things when you translate a game or book into a Movie or TV show. There is no way the show's budget could've afforded the special effects needed to be absolutely faithful to the game. People need to realize the real world limitations involved, and be happy with what they can get.
