Stop comparing it to the movies!!!
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Blade: The Series, on its own as a TV debut, was well done. I don't understand the constant complaining and unrealistic comparison of this series to the movies when both are vastly different. The movies have the bigger budget and the better, seasoned actors while the TV series is going to have to make due with certain limitations. In time, Blade could very well find its groove and take off from there.

I thought the pilot was exceptional for an action/drama series. The two elements were fused well together without coming off as too clichéd or mundane. There were a few clunkers here and there in the dialogue but the pace of story did not lag and it kept me interested for the full 2 hours.

Every actor performed his or her job relatively well with the exception of Kirk "Sticky" Jones who was, in my opinion, too stiff and robotic in his delivery. Perhaps if given time he could grow more comfortable in the role, but as the title character I felt that he was the weakest. His co-stars stole the show, most especially Krista Starr and Marcus Van Sciver. Their back story has tremendous potential which might unfortunately overshadow Blade himself.

Blade: The Series is one of the only shows left on TV that is packed with action, vampires, violence, sexy women, and drama. So if you're sick of all that reality crap, then you might as well give this series a chance.

I will be looking forward to the future episodes and will keep in mind that this series does not have the big Hollywood budget to live up to its movie counterparts. It's a pity that others won't do the same.
