I am a big fan of Blade (I was born ready m@#$@# f$##$)

but this series is a down grade for the original Blade.

Stick with the movies and Leave (Sticky) blade series!

I give 2 stars because of the name only…

a total disappointment. this tv series was totally horrible in terms of production (seems to have a very low budget)and a silly story line.

this one has nothing to compare with the movie series, which i loved. it got boring and boring as it progressed.

what a waste of a great franchise

After a pretty successful trilogy of films starring Wesley Snipes (the first really being the beginning of the whole comic to film adaptation craze), Blade made the transition to television on Spike TV, courtesy of the films’ writer David Goyer and comic scribe Geoff Johns. The series finds Blade (now portrayed by Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones) and his partner Shen (Nelson Lee) coming to the aid of a Iraq War veteran (Jill Wagner, better known as the girl from the Mercury commercials) whose twin brother was a vampire familiar of powerful vamp Marcus Van Sciver(Neil Jackson), and was murdered because of something he knew. All this leads to some revelations, flashbacks to Blade’s past, and an inevitable showdown between Blade and Van Sciver; all of which really doesn’t amount to much. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a few moments of greatness to be found here, as Goyer attempts to weave a decent amount of the vampire world mythology he crafted in the very first film into the series’ underbelly, but what really hurts Blade: The Series is Blade himself. Kirk Jones looks the part, but his overacting and static dialogue delivery are more annoying than anything, and the same goes for a majority of the show’s cast as well. There’s some solid amounts of nicely filmed action sequences, and hot women to boot (Wagner and the gorgeous Jessica Gower), but there just isn’t enough here to make Blade: The Series worthwhile. The series would end on a bit of a cliffhanger, as bad fan reaction and overall poor ratings would cause the show to get cancelled. All in all, if you’re a Blade fan, the series is worth a look if you missed it on TV, but otherwise, don’t really bother.

Marcus is working on a vaccine that cures the vampires of their weaknesses to garlic, sunlight and etc. He has apparently been testing it on vampires for years without success but he has had one success named Fritz. Towards the end of the series we learn that Marcus has been calling it a vaccine when it is actually something else entirely. Blade the “daywalker” who doesn’t have the weaknesses of other vampires is obviously trying to stop Marcus reaching his goal. Like in all these sorts of movies he does all the dirty work, his nerdy mate gets all the information he needs and he has a spy watching Marcus’ every move.

Don’t look for anything new or exciting for you will be disappointed as I was. I was curious how it was going to end yet I had already knew by the end of episode 9 in the 13 episode series. There are so many vampire movies around nowadays that you’re looking for one that stands out from the crowd rather than just another copy. This is what I was hoping when I bought Blade: The Series for I didn’t see it when it was on cable and I was left disappointed. I found myself saying “when you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all” for I found this series predictable.

If you’re fan you will love the series on DVD but I am not a fan and I guess that was my mistake for this is mainly a fan’s purchase. The episode I liked the most was bloodlines for I liked Blade getting bashed for it was a change from the average invincible superhero who bursts through the door showing off how good he he is. It is like watching a Steven Segal movie, I am so good I can get you twenty times but you can’t get me once.

The DVD apparently comes with bonuses but you need a computer to access them and since I am in Australia and my DVD-ROM has been changed to the maximum amount of times I wasn’t able to access them. I could play the DVD in my region free DVD player but after watching the series I wasn’t left asking for more I just put it in my DVD rack and forgot about it.
