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.
