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. 😉
