Moonlight: Strangely Familiar

I wasn't really interested in watching Moonlight, but then my anger got the better of me and I DVR-ed it.

For those that don't know anything about Moonlight, allow me to sum it up: It's about a vampire detective in Los Angeles. Sound familiar? It gets even more familiar. Apparently the vampires in this universe aren't like the vampires of mythology. Huh. And our hero, Mick St. James is a "good" vampire who was "in it for himself" until he helped a blond girl who he then wanted to protect.

*headdesk*

I'd say that it looks like Angel meets Beauty and the Beast (because I think that they're trying to capture the romance from Beauty and the Beast), but it's a little too much Angel. If CBS wanted a vampire detective show, I know one they could have picked up a few years ago.

The thing that really sent me over the edge? Their tag line for the season promo is "discover a new kind of hero." Yeah, new.


Sadly, since there is a dearth of both vampire shows and Jason Dohring, I'll give it a few more episodes, but I am not happy about this.

This is mostly for me because I keep forgetting when shows are starting this season and I absolutely cannot miss the beginning of Pushing Daises.

So, this is what I'll be watching this year. Or at least until my DVR explodes from overuse.
