So there is (was) this little show that could, called "Blood Ties". Some of you may have heard of or even seen it?

It is/was about this former homicide detective Vicki Nelson (Christina Cox), who, due to her failing eye sight, has to quit the force, and in turn she opens her own PI agency.

However, her world changes significantly one night, after she witnesses something supernatural and then her subsequent meeting of the almost 500 yr old [450 to be exact] vampire named Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid), bastard son of King Henry the VIII.

Soon they develop not only a friendship , but also a partnership , as they work to confront the things that go bump in the night.

And with the way most good stories go, Vicki must deal, not only with her attraction towards Henry, but with her on again off again relationship with her former homicide detective partner Mike Celluci (Dylan Neal).

"Blood Ties" is (was) a smartly written, well acted TV show, that highlighted wonderful chemistry between its' actors characters with witty dialogue and great (sexual) tension.

It is a great pity that this show was staked before it's time, thus limiting its undead life to only one season, and with the current influx of vamp shows on the TV market, it would have been nice to have this Canadian gem in the rough!

We die hard fans had petitioned for at least a Tv movie to get made, to tie up the loose ends, so we won't be left ex-sanguinated from the dramatic end that was episode 22, but alas (to date) it has been to no avail!

Nevertheless, "Blood Ties" is definitely a should see series.

Pretty good series.

I found it more enjoyable than Tanya Huff's books. Not as good as Buffy, Angel or True Blood, but still worth the time and money IMO.

A bit short (10 episodes in one season and 13 in the other IIRC).

It has closed captioning.

Too many dark scenes in some episodes. Yes, I understand it's about demons and vampires and darkness is required, but other shows manage to do it without making it hard to see what's going on.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 5 2009
Vampires are very hot right now -- the bestselling "Twilight" series, the hit TV show "True Blood," and the tragically cancelled "Moonlight."

And one of the better vampire stories to emerge from the crypt is "Blood Ties," a too-brief show based on Tanya Huff's urban fantasy series. The first season has a slightly slow start, but it's a solid action/fantasy series with plenty of sensual romance, gritty crime, and supernatural spookery.

On her way back from a date, PI Vicki Nelson (Christina Cox) sees a caped figure attack and kill a young man -- leaving the body drained of blood. The victim's girlfriend hires Vicki to find the culprit. But as Vicki starts prodding around goth clubs and alleyways, she encounters the mysterious Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid) who is doing his own murder investigation.

Turns out Henry is also a sexy 500-year-old vampire, and the bastard son of Henry VII. Together they have to find a creepy demon-summoner, before something far worse is unleashed. And soon she has to deal with a lot of other supernatural problems, with the help of Henry and her former partner Mike (Dylan Neal), who loathe one another.

Among the problems: voodoo priest and his zombies, a murderous "imaginary friend," a heart-crushing Celtic ghost, a suburban incubi, a man-eating Wendigo, Egyptian gods, a Medusa, a fertility clinic that produces creepy results, the return of creepy demon-summoning dude, and an immortal priest with an unending vendetta against Henry.

"Blood Ties Season One" fits into the same niche as "Moonlight" and "The Dresden Files" -- a detective series with vampires and spooky things, and a human mired in the supernatural.

Excellent show; lousy presentation. The DVD's are presented in a letterboxed 4:3 aspect ratio. One winds up viewing with broad black bars on either side of the screen, and narrow black bars top and bottom. This is of course on a 16 x 9 television. On a 4 x 3 TV you only have the top and bottom black bars (letterbox).
The other complaint is that the 13 episodes of the so called season 1 are actually the 12 episodes which aired in early 2007 (March, April, May), plus the first of the 10 episodes which aired in late 2007 (October, November, December). Season 2 contains the remaining 9 episodes from late 2007.
The Blu-Ray set contains all 22 episodes (no season 1, season 2 hokum). More importantly the discs are properly formatted so the picture uses the entire 16 x 9 screen (no black bars).

This series is based on books by Canadian author Tanya Huff. While the series obviously did not have the budget that productions out of Hollywood do, the cast and crew tried their best with what they had been given, and I think they did a wonderful job! This series was great fun and I enjoyed the relationships between all of the main characters...especially between Vicky and Henry:) Actress Christina Cox did a splendid job at portraying Vicky Nelson, who isn't your typical heroine. And Kyle Schmid was fantastic as Henry Fitzroy the 400 year old vampire. It was also great to see a series that actually takes place in Canada, I got a kick out of seeing Canadian money being used in the series!:)
