I'm too tired to stay up for a full review--this show already keeps me up past my bedtime--but a couple of quick comments on tonight's episode.

Not really reviews, more like visceral reactions, now that I'm a little caught-up on my backlog of shows.

I'm an officer of the law. Canon law. (I think I may need to make that into an icon).

I think this was definitely my favorite episode so far. It felt like tonally and character-wise everything completely clicked.

You know you watch too much TV when your primary feeling when all your main shows are on hiatus for the next couple weeks is profound relief that you can actually catch up on your life.

I thought I'd do a little pimping for "Blood Ties," since I think it's going to be my new guilty pleasure show. For those of you who haven't read the books by Tanya Huff, the series is about Vicki Nelson, a former cop who had to leave the force because of a medical condition affecting her vision. She's now a P.I., and as the series starts she gets her first of many cases investigating paranormal events. In the course of this, she encounters Henry Fitzroy, vampire and graphic novelist. (In the books he's a romance novelist, which I think is more fun, but oh well.) She also sometimes works with her former partner, Michael Celluci. The show is airing on Lifetime at 10 p.m. Sundays (I believe that's 10 p.m. Eastern time). I would not say this show is great art, but it is a lot of fun, and if you like cheesy vampire shows you will like this one.

If you missed the first episode, you can download it from iTunes. The first hour is free (the link for that can be found on the Lifetime website here in the top left hand corner of the page), so you can watch it and decide whether or not you want to pay to download the second hour of the two-hour series premiere. If you want to find out more about the episode before downloading it, I collected a whole bunch of reviews of the episode here )


You can find out more about the show at Tanya Huff's official blog , or her livejournal. She's asking that people who liked the premiere to thank Lifetime for supporting the show. Their feedback form is here.

Can't sleep--demons will eat me. In this case, demons of the common cold virus. So I watched "Blood Ties" hoping that after staying up really late to watch the whole thing I'd finally fall asleep.


I'm impressed to have found a show that outdoes even Smallville in the cheesiness factor! The series is of course based on the Blood Price/Blood Ties/etc. novels by Tanya Huff. I loved those books to death, though not so much for the horror plotlines (see P.I. Victory Nelson solve a series of supernatural murders assisted by vampire Henry Fitzroy and her ex-partner on the police force, Michael Celluci) as for the sexay that was Henry Fitzroy and the various love triangles in the series.

Slight spoilers for the premiere )
