this is singularly the most contrived p.o.s. i have ever seen. nothing
is interesting about this show- the script is tediously bland and full
of clichés, while the acting is sub-par at best.
the few fans of this show must just be too naive or young to know what good television writing or original vampire lore is.
i beg you to please SKIP THIS NONSENSE and watch 'buffy' or 'angel' instead. in fact, the show pretty much PLAGIARIZES the premise of 'angel.' the massive difference, tho, is that 'moonlight' has zero flavor and is mind-numbingly trite in every single way.
after 16 episodes, the characters remain 2 dimensional and uninteresting. the acting is so bad that none of the leads have any chemistry with each other. the character/actor with the most potential is a 400 yr old vampire played by jason dohring, but he so is under- utilized that his story lines seem forced when he does show up on screen.
there is zero subtlety to the script- it plows through story lines without any sort of self-reflection or deeper meaning that is so inherent in the romance of vampire lore.
the network only aired 4 episodes of this show on Friday nights (the night shows go to die) before pulling it off the air. it is such a shame because it was a very lovable cast that played 20something friends and the wit was as sharp as any 'sex and the city' episode. it is a light-hearted comedy that's incredibly fun to watch. it's even made me want to move to a beach. i still cant believe it was canceled, and that there is still yet to be a DVD release. i bought it on amazon on demand but they have had licensing issues with the show, meaning sometimes i can't access it. GET UR ACT TOGETHER CBS~~~!!!!! premiering a new show on a Friday night and canceling it after 4 eps just to air reruns of that crappy NCIS show is bull.
