"Tall, dark... and immortal"

Blade - The Series

One Season (2006)


Angel, personified by David Borreanaz, was a spin off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Given Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), and later Wesley (Alexis Denisof), plus a steady flow of guest stars from Buffy, the show also benefited Joss Whedon's successful production team. It ran for a respectable five seasons.

Buffy, the Vampire

"Buffy - You Are The Slayer. Into Every Generation, A Slayer is Born; One Girl in All the World. The Chosen One. One Born with the Strength and Skill ..."

Several years after the 1992 Movie, seven seasons of Buffy opened the Vampyreverse to discussion and reconsideration as never before. 'Buffy' combined humour, drama, horror and plain old fashioned teenage angst.

Vampire High

Set in a residential high school, the twist is that it's a normal school by day, and the vampires - being 'normalized' - come out at night.

Teen vamps have problems of their own, let alone mixing with day folk ... and the staff also have their concerns ...

UK miniseries that starts off all scientific ... and ends up just plain silly. Great shame ...

UK Mini-series, 1998

The Embraced

Aired in 1996, Kindred was Aaron Spelling's foray into niche TV; trouble is, it took all the Spelling stereotypes with it, and was cut after just seven episodes (plus one unaired).

Kindred The Embraced

One Season, 1996

Forever Knight

Cut off after just three seasons, FK established many of the rules for Vampires on TV, and set new standards for awful acting.

Forever Knight, first a TV movie, then a miniseries, then a three-year series on CBS, achieved cult status toward the end of the first series - when CBS wanted out, a letter campaign saved the series for two more years ...

The Series

This children's TV show had just one season (1990), and maintained a high standard throughout. their vampires were a little odd, but were consistent and most of the time the stories were original and quite amusing, if a little hammy ...
