An interesting take on vampires and romance. Mick St John (Alex O'Loughlin) is a private investigator in Los Angeles. He is also a 90 year old vampire. He was bitten by his former wife on their wedding night 60 years ago. Since then he has been feeding off of material from blood banks and solving crimes. The most recent crime he is trying to solve is the murder of a co-ed at a local university. She seems to have puncture wounds on her neck so of course the media is all abuzz with tales of "vampires". Of course they do not know that vampires are real. Now Mick is teaming up with a local reporter, Beth (Sophia Myles), who he saved from his ex-wife when she was a child. Now as they work together they become closer but will Mick allow himself to fall in love with a mortal?

This is an interesting concept but I do not know if it was successful. The second episode is on my DVR and I will watch it. However, if the acting and dialogue do not get better I probably will not record it again. St John was pretty good but Myles seemed wooden and stiff. Right now I am disappointed in what was a great idea.
