During the second season of the show, production was halted so that star Yancy Butler could seek treatment for alcoholism. When she completed the treatment, the show was cancelled. See more »
In the pilot, when Sara questions Kenneth Irons about Ian Nottingham, she shows him the newspaper photo she took from Jake McCartey's apartment with Ian in the background. The same photo Jake was seen looking at right after Sara had supposedly left with it. See more »
The movie that premiered last year for this show was decent enough. I did not expect it to live up to stature of the comic book, but it did live up to my expectations.
However, the first episode of the series did not keep my attention. I found myself channel surfing off and on throughout the show. My expectation for the show was that it would start to develop the characters and start giving more clues as to what the Witchblade can do and its purpose.
The show also employs some of the freeze frame techniques popularized in "The Matrix". But, where the that movie creates fluid action with this technique, Witchblade seemed to use it heavy-handedly making the action scene boring and idiotic. Besides that it also used the same scene in the movie, where Sara phases in and out of the suit of armor. If I wanted to watch the same action sequences reused I could have just as well rented a "Sailor Moon" video.
In the end, if this is all the Witchblade can do then this show is not going to last past its first multi-episode commitment with TNT. Until then I can only hope it gets better than what I saw in the first episode.
