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

Throughout filming the series, Alex O'Loughlin (Mick St. John) was dating actress Holly Valance, who guest starred as the vampire Lola in episode 6 (B.C.) 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 »

Crazy Credits

Names appear on-screen beginning with a single glowing letter--almost always an "O" or another vowel when there are no "O"s--then the rest of the name and credit spreads out from that letter. (Perhaps not coincidentally, the entire regular cast, plus both creators, have an "O" in his/her name.) See more »

More gritty and realistic than "Angel".
2 May 2008 | by johnnymacbestSee all my reviews

I like this series...a lot. It's more grounded realistically per se than "Angel". This show has no werewolves, zombies, or other bizarre creatures; it just presents vampires more contemporary and in my opinion that makes the show work so well on so many levels. The first episode was kinda bland and didn't have that genuinely exciting buildup that other premieres had but it got better later on. Alex O'Loughlin gives Mick St. John a "modern-day Sam Spade" cynical edge to the character pure bliss along with Sophia Myles who gives the show a sense of heart and longing. And Jason Dohring is hilarious!! Injects the right amount of comic relief in dark noir atmosphere with brooding angst. Though I couldn't help notice the comparisons to Forever Night, for me, this show is fresh and more realistically gritty than what came before.

Great show with great stories to bite into (pardon the pun).
