One episode was bad enough!
2 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stupid British "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" ripoff. Here we have young, hunky Luke Van Helsing (Christian Cooke) being told by his godfather Rupert Giles (Philip Glenister) that it is his duty to fight freaks (i.e. demons). Naturally he doesn't believe him until the "freaks" (guys in ridiculous teddy-bear looking makeup) attack. There's also two attractive women thrown in--Mina Harker (Zoe Tapper) and Luke's annoying girlfriend Ruby (Holly Grainger).

What's wrong with this? Well--everything! The basic story has been done to death. Do we really need to see it again. The plot was predictable AND clichéd--not a good thing. The dialogue was on the level of a very bad comic book. The "demons" just looked silly--even by TV standards. They were more comical than scary. The special effects were atrocious. As for the acting--the less said the better! Talented actor Glenister looks (understandably) embarrassed and doesn't even try to act. Cooke is very attractive and hunky--but he's a lousy actor. Also his thick British accent makes most of his dialogue (to American ears) unintelligible. The girls are both good-looking and speak clearly but they're given nothing to do. This is being shown over here in the USA on BBC America. From what I gather this was cancelled in the UK after 6 episodes. No shock there!
