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... Written by L. Hamre

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 »

Fabulous program don't believe all of the critics
21 October 2007 | by BevHuthSee all my reviews

I know Moonlight has not gotten rave reviews, has been likened to so many other vampire stories but, it truly is different.

Mick St. John is a new breed of vampire with new rules, new ways of meeting his needs and, a new outlook on being a vampire. He sometimes jokes about being a vamp, admits even tomato juice makes him think of blood.

He loves Beth very much but, he knows that relationships with humans are difficult at best and, is forever concerned that she may, someday, see him as a monster which he cannot bear the thought of.

Not your typical vampire do gooder, he does try to be the good guy but doesn't hesitate to be the predator and, kill if he feels it's warranted.

Classic film noir style with flashbacks to the past and voice-overs in a modern Los Angeles, Ca setting. Wonderfully portrayed, beautifully wardrobed and the ideal actors for each role. Moonlight has hot babes, seductive hunks, even if he doesn't try to be one, and great storytelling.

Love it, love it, love it.
