Blade the Series first episode
30 June 2006 | by agentblack-2See all my reviews

It was a lot better than I expected and a heck of a lot better than those last two movies. The vampires are sexy for one thing. It did start out choppy, the introduction of the characters felt rushed. My only problem with that though is it seems to have turned a lot of people off before the episode was completed. Hopefully it will have enough following to keep it going. If you stick around for the entire episode it really picks up in the last 45 minutes. Oddly the characters Krista and Marcus are a lot more interesting than Blade himself. Sticky Fingaz did a good job of portraying Blade, unfortunately Blade's character is just too one dimensional. At some point in the series hopefully they can find times to get him out of his costume and have some other scenes besides thrashing vamps and chewing out his sidekicks.

But on the plus side they did get a good plot going for the series and I like most of the characters. If you like sci fi/vampire type stuff this will be a good watch, just be patient getting through the pilot it is stiff but if you make it to the end you will probably be looking forward to the next episode.
