TNT Original Series Combines Cop Drama w/ The Supernatural
26 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

I have to be perfectly honest. I'm not into the new reality shows that are popping up everywhere now like Fear Factor, Boot Camp, The Weakest Link, Temptation Island, and Big Brother. I'm more of a Cop Drama TV show person. So when TNT premiered their new show "Witchblade", mere words couldn't describe how happy I became. The series, which combines that of the cop drama element with the supernatural, is centered around Sara Pezzini a New York Homicide Detective who has a chance encounter with an armored gauntlet known as "The Witchblade" while in a museum fighting a henchman of a very clever criminal mastermind who killed her father and sister awhile back. Her ultimate goal was to avenge both of those deaths by bringing down this criminal mastermind; however, before she could achieve that her partner was killed by the very same person, this time right in front of her as she watched her friend and partner lying in pain on the floor of the Rialto Theatre. She ends up getting her revenge by using the "Witchblade as a threat to him if he should ever step out of line again. Ultimately though, he ends up committing suicide out of fear of Sara and her new supernatural powered weapon.

Now armed with the "Witchblade", which grants her the ability to deflect bullets, to use it as a sword, and strike fear in her enemies by transforming into a fully armored knight, Sara is "reborn" to find out what her true destiny is and has become a new kind of law enforcement and justice to the city of New York.

Again what I love about this new original series is that it combines the cop drama with a supernatural element. Sara Pezzini is no ordinary women or Homicide Detective. She is tough, yet still somewhat a vulnerable person, although she would never openly admit it to anyone except those close to her. She is also very aggressive and bold, letting bad guys know that when she wants answers she means business.

I love the fighting sequences with the weapon when she uses it and when she and another person are combating or chasing one another from on their separate motorcycles. By using the techniques used for digital and visual effects used in The Matrix, Witchblade has been given an added edge to it's gritty and powerful plot and compelling characters.
