It might be really lame (well, everything pales next to Joss's shows) but it also might not be horrible either...especially since it's from creators/producers of BEAUTY & the BEAST and VERONICA MARS, which I both liked (B&B, sorta) and loved (VM).

Even if it's so pathetically stupid I can't bring myself to watch it, I hope it does well. REALLY well. I even hope BLOOD TIES did well in the ratings, even though looking back, I gave it much more credit than it deserved.

I hope the two shows are so loved by the general audience that it becomes a thing. The kind everybody out there tries to copy, like LOST and FRIENDS.

After all, this could mean a comeback of the genre to mainstream tv, and hopefully, the eventual return of Joss to television as well, which is what we all want.

Hell, I'll even welcome a new show about a teen girl with superpowers.

Bring it on!!!

Just read that the lead female is being recast.

Is there a site where we can vote for Charisma Carpenter or Amy Acker?

j/k, but not really, you know.

Speaking of new shows and teen girls, though not w/ super powers, there's Nancy Drew. Not that it's really my cup of tea, but from the ads I've seen, I sense a hint of 'Buffy'. Maybe it's just me.

People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy. - Joss

Isn't that a movie, not a show?

It's like Angel, but without Joss and Boreanaz.

here's a link. It doesn't look that bad to me. Similar premise, but that's about it from what I can tell. Looks like a straight romantic drama, but without all the depth and metaphors. I could see myself enjoying it...possibly.

clicking on the Moonlight box will take you to a video preview of the show.

I just saw a promo for New Amsterdam (another vampire themed show, I think) after the House season finale. That seems infinitely more interesting than Moonlight so far. But I will still try to give both a chance (provided they don't interfere with my other shows).

*meh* Looks like a cheap knockoff of Forever Knight and Angel, and frankly he doesn't have the prescense that Nick Knight and Angel had. I watched some Angel episodes and a few seasons of Kight, and let me say from the clip, if you take away the vampire aspect, it looks like a boring romantic drama. Shouldn't a vampire have.... what's the word..... gravitas? Angel and Nick had it, when the actors came on screen, I dunno, you felt power in their prescence. All the while I watched that clip I had to remind myself that guy's supposed to be the walking dead.

And the love interest looks boring (and seems to be primped a little like Buffy)

Not interesting and not interested.

I'll just wait for Heroes to return, that reminds me, I have to watch the last episode, I taped it and haven't been able to watch it yet.

I don't mind the idea that the vampire thing might not be that obvious right off. Maybe they've decided to avoid prosthetics and/or over-the-top special effects...could be a good thing, considering what BLOOD TIES special effects and makeup usually looked like, which was bloody awful. Romantic dramas aren't always that boring to me. I actually liked BEAUTY and the BEAST at the time (though don't know if I'd like it now). Especially considering who's involved behind the scenes, I've got my hopes up.

I read somewhere yesterday that they're recasting the female lead. I will have to wait and see the whole thing to make a final judgement. I need more than good actors and writing...chemistry is also a must for me. Looking back, that was the main thing BLOOD TIES had going for it--chemistry between the leads. That's what kept me giving it chance after chance--I wanted to like it. LOST has that for me...all those things. VERONICA had it, too (RIP). Even BONES has it.


HEROES: Caught a couple of eps. on SCI-FI channel. Couldn't really tell if I'd like it or not. Maybe if I saw if from the beginning...?

A link to a video preview for NEW AMSTERDAM. Had never heard of this one before.

http://www.fox.com/fallpreview/


Looks like it might be good, I think. Will try out both.

Things are definitely looking up for this series, I think. I have complete faith that David Greenwalt can turn this into something worth investing my time.

Apparently, DG has exited the show, according to Eonline.

David Greenwalt's stay with the upcoming CBS series as an executive producer will be brief, leaving the show after what the network described as "creative reasons".

Eff this show then.

I'm extremely disappointed, but I'm still giving it a shot. Still consider Jason Dohring one of the best parts of VERONICA MARS (third only to Kristen Bell and Veronica's relationship with her father), so that's still a plus, at least. Wouldn't mind if they recast the lead with James Marsters (since David Boreanaz already has a steady gig ), but hey. Whatever.
