Storyline

Julian Luna, prince of several disparate vampire, or kindred, clans in San Francisco, has his job cut out for him as he must try to keep a tenuous peace among them while not being afraid to apply ruthless justice against those who would break kindred rules. Infractions that merit "final death" include the taking of human life and changing humans into vampires who have not volunteered for the transformation. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

I hate to break it to you...
7 November 1998 | by Keith-50See all my reviews

This show could've been cool if they would've stayed closer to the true World of Darkness atmosphere. Vampire: the Masquerade (which is what this is based on) is one of the darkest, most well thought out worlds on paper. FOX destroyed it! They basically said: Lets make Melrose Place, but with fangs! We'll offer Mark Rein*Hagan a lot of money to sign off on it and it will be really cool! Well, it wasn't. It could've been the next X-Files if they really would've done their homework. But...they didn't. So now we have another cheesy, half baked show about Vampires. I'm glad they cancelled it. Maybe they realized that they were ruining something really good.
