Speaking of Jason Dohring…

I’m watching an episode of Moonlight for no real reason at all, except that it came on after Syfy’s 11 pm showing of Being Human (3 eps in and I am loving that show ).  It’s late, though; I have to be up in about 6 hours  but I bet my brain won’t let me sleep anyway, which gives lying prone in the dark little appeal.

So here I am watching this show and feeling a little guilty for making fun of it so mercilessly when it first came out.  I know I wanted to be a fan; vampires and Jason Dohring—no, better, Jason Dohring AS a vampire—I expected to be peeing myself  with excitement every time it came on.   Instead I think I tried two episodes and gave up. And I made fun of it a lot.

I’ll be blunt.  I didn’t like the stories, I didn’t like the main character or give a crap about his point of view, and I didn’t think Josef got enough screen time for me to keep watching just to enjoy Dohring’s wry delivery.  Sophia Myles didn’t enter into the equation, since I wasn’t a Doctor Who fan until 2008.  Now that I know who she is, fantastic American accent.  🙂

Josef: Vampire experts. Beautiful – now we have the food mouthing off about the farmer.

Not a bad line. I’m wondering if I was just a little less open-minded about vampire fiction at the time, it being pre-Twilight saga and Being Human (enter vamps that can day-walk with only a little squinting or sparkling).

Ha-ha, Sophia just said ‘phone’ with an English accent.

Oh, well.  Moonlight is long gone and I don’t feel like chasing it just to find out once and for all if it was worth more than a two-ep attempt.  I’ll just keep hoping that Dohring picks up another chance somewhere else.  Until then, we’ll always have Logan Echolls.  😉
