Storyline

Over fifty years ago, Mick St. John was turned into a vampire. Now in modern Los Angeles, he is a private eye; working cases that often involve the undead. He uses his supernatural abilities to help mortals in need, a difficult task if he is to keep his own identity a secret. Mick's mentor is Josef, a powerful fellow vampire with many connections. One night, a case leads Mick to reporter Beth Turner, a beautiful human woman he feels bound to protect. But while he struggles with his romantic feelings towards Beth, he meets an enigmatic brunette who looks identical to his ex-wife Coraline --the woman who turned him into a vampire, a woman who was supposed to be dead...

Trivia

The main character, Mick St. John, was originally going to be called Mike Angel. The name was changed so as not to be confused with the Joss Whedon's vampire detective series Angel (1999). Similarly, the series title was originally going to be "Twilight", but the title was changed when Stephenie Meyer's book series "Twilight" became popular. See more »

Goofs

As a vampire, Mick St. John regenerates and heals all wounds. However, throughout the show, Alex O'Loughlin clearly has his left ear pierced. The holes, to a vampire, would have healed. See more »

Why Moonlight is good!
14 October 2007 | by SkidMcCormickSee all my reviews

First of all, if you're expecting Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, then forget it. This is something like Forever Knight, but what makes this CBS series a standout, is the way it's shot and the fact there isn't a hellmouth in sight. Very beautiful cinematography and the way nighttime L.A. is captured is in keeping with the whole vampire mythos (fast forwarding to create an eerie atmosphere,etc). I've noticed a few comments being made that the stories are cheesy. Really? Were you expecting Mills & Boon? There are twinges of humour, but you need to look out for it.If you had bad actors, then yeah, that would be the case. But Alex O'Loughlin (who was so good in the last season of The Shield)makes a really convincing vamp PI with morals. He kinda reminds me a slimmer version of Gerard Butler's Dracula 2000 movie and is naturally broody without trying. It's also good to see the gorgeous Brit, Sophia Myles (aka Keira Knightley's more voluptuous, better actress friend) get a decent role where she does a very good American accent. Brian J. White, Kevin Weismen & Jason Dohring also deserve mentioning as they bring more meat to the table. Let's hope their roles develop and as Joel Silver is producing this, we can hope this will be commissioned for a second season - because it is that good & CBS is known for its quality output - (Hey, if Shark can be renewed...?)
