Moonlight pilot review

Moonlight


vampire private-eye



Type of Pilot: Fantasy Drama


Similar Shows: Forever Knight, Blood Ties, Angel


Strengths: Alex O’Loughlin


Weaknesses: Seen it all before.


Impressive Characters: None.


Impressive Actors: Alex O’Loughlin is very impressive as the hero of the piece. He's got a cool private-eye vibe going on (especially in the daytime scenes with his dark glasses) and he's equally cool when he bears fangs for the superheroics. The other stand-out in the pilot is Jason Dohring as his best friend.


Less-Than-Impressive Characters: All of the characters are pretty blah in the pilot.


Less-Than-Impressive Actors: Sophia Myles wasn't especially memorable as the hero's love interest (damsel in distress).


Continuity: Probably be light. Case-Of-The-Week scenarios with subtle continuity elements.


Rewatchability: None.


Three Things I Really Like About This Pilot:


Alex O’Loughlin

Jason Dohring

The action sequence at the end was good.


Three Things I Really Don't Like About This Pilot:


It's just a copy of Forever Knight

It's just a copy of Angel

It's just a copy of Blood Ties



Miscellaneous Comments:


It's been a few months since I saw this pilot. I liked it. But I haven't felt compelled to go back and watch more. Just yet.


Just watched Episode 2. Click here to read my review. And click here to read my reviews for episodes 1 to 16.

OK, so the Pilot wasn't great. I agree. But give it another try, pretty please? I think you'll find that it has gotten WAAAAAYYYYYYYY better. Second epi reruns Dec 28. "Fever," the fourth epi, is a real turning point.

Thanks for your comment!

Posting (finally) the review of the pilot whet my appetite for more. So, last night, I watched the second episode and (I freely admit) I really, really enjoyed it.

I will be posting a detailed review later in the day and I'll put a link to it here on this site/blog.

Much better than the pilot, I agree. Thanks for posting.

Ignoring Friday Night Lights renders the Emmy's meaningless.
