Product Description

Product Description

Moonlight: The Complete Series (DVD)

Amazon.ca

A thoroughly entertaining series that lasted just one season, Moonlight tells the story of a sexy vampire who wants to do good. (Think along the lines of Angel from the Joss Whedon series of the same name.) Mick (Alex O'Loughlin, August Rush) became a vampire in the 1950s when his beautiful vamp bride Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon, A Knight's Tale) created his new incarnation. Shunning that lifestyle and turning against his wife when she attempts to add a little girl to their family, Mick creates a new identity for himself as a private detective. The job has its perks. Mick, who normally shuns fresh human blood, doesn't feel as badly partaking from the fluids of a criminal. Though Coraline would actually make a more intriguing ongoing love interest for Mick, he falls in love with Beth (Sophia Myles, Underworld). The two have a history together, too, though Beth doesn't remember it right away (Mick saved her from Coraline some 20 years ago); now, they're working together. O'Loughin and Myles make a handsome couple, but they don't share the type of chemistry that makes his scenes with Sossamon so intoxicating. Moonlight originally aired on CBS during the 2007-2008 television season. The season was truncated to just 16 episodes due to the Writers Guild Strike. Because of that, the series at times feels unresolved--especially in the finale. But Moonlight is well-crafted and has beautiful production value. Mick at times utters groaners like, “Being a vampire sucks,” but the Aussie actor makes it work. The series in some ways is debating the age-old question of whether eternal life is a blessing or a curse. The answer depends on who--or what--you are. --Jae-Ha Kim

Vampires are cool as hell ... again. This series resurrects the Vampire theme, making Vamps fun and sexy and interesting again. Had never heard of the series when I stumbled across this box set. Can't believe that something so fast and fun and sexy was cancelled so quickly. I'd buy more if there were more. Loved the P.I. Vampire idea, loved the performances and ... well, nothing sucked!

Format: DVD
"Moonlight" begins with a laid-back vampire PI being interviewed in his mind, defining what about vampires is legend and what is real. "I don't hunt innocents. But there's predators out there that need to be dealt with."

It's a quirky reversal of Anne Rice tradition, and it sets the tone for a very unique blend of vampire tale and urban mystery -- and sadly it ended too soon. Especially since Alex O'Loughlin is an absolutely inspired vampire detective, and the quick direction, good CGI and snappy writing save this from being another cheesy vampire story.

Mick St. John (O'Laughlin) is a vampire detective in L.A. -- where there has recently been a vampiresque murder of a college student. But though the student was obsessed with vampires, Mick soon realizes that she wasn't murdered by one. And with the assistance of Beth Turner (Sophia Myles) -- who insists he looks familiar -- Mick uncovers a weird little vampire-obsessed cabal at Hearst college, and a professor whose infatuation with undeath goes beyond mere fanaticism.

And there are plenty of other nasty cases -- an ex-con gunning for the vampire detective, a forced stay in the desert, "Black Crystal," a feral newbie vampire, a hooker-killing teenage vampire, a supposedly-dead cult killer, a killer gang going after Beth's boyfriend, a Hollywood starlet, an attempt to kill Mick's mentor, and a vampire who threatens to "out" every single vampire in L.A.

But no vampire story is complete without the nasty pasts and romantic tension -- Beth discovers Mick's true nature, and finds herself drawn to him until she's hit by a terrible personal tragedy. And Mick is confronted by a woman who looks suspiciously like Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon) -- his dead ex-wife, and the woman who made him a vampire.

I was lucky enough to see Moonlight from the start. This was a show that stuck out from the rest, with a unique take on an age old story.
The talented cast made it easy to relate to, and care about the characters. There's a wonderful mix of action, romance, dramatic mood and lighting, and even a bit of humor, to lighten things up with great timing. This was a great love story, with interesting plot twists that left us with some questions when the show was cancelled all too soon.
If you like vampires at all, or just love a good love story, a great escape, than you will love this show.

I was hoping for a little more from the DVD. There are virtually no extras, and you think they could at least scrounge up some behind the scenes moments, bloopers or ad clips. I suppose with the way the network and studios treated us fans, we should be happy to get this DVD set at all.
Widescreen TV viewers like me will appreciate that the show is displayed in its widescreen TV format.

What can I say.
This show rocks!
The storyline it imaginative and interesting. The actors are ALL superb and outstanding. They bring a depth of emotion to these characters, you can't help but feel a connection to and ultimately fall in love with.

I believe CBS did a huge mistake by cancelling this show.

I managed to see most of Moonlight - at least from the beginning - a couple of the later ones I did miss and still regret it.

A really great program - from someone who rarely watches TV, that is a good recommendation - I still can't believe that CBS (have I got that right?) canned the show. I actually stopped watching TV again because of this.

So, hopefully some kind person may even bring out a film later?!?!

My feeling is - if you can - get the DVD - then you can watch Moonlight more that once as I have every intention of doing so.

I wont give any details away to those who have not seen Moonlight - but again take it from me - Moonlight is a show worth seeing more than once!

I purchased this series on speculation only, but I am not sorry that I did. I watched the entire series over a weekend - one of Alex O'Loughlin's best!!

I wasn't sure I was going to like 'Moonlight'. I went into it prejudiced against it because it was based on one of my favourites: 'Forever Knight'. But 'Moonlight' managed to win me over. I like Alex O'Loughlin's conflicted portrayal of Mick. Sophia Myles did a great job as the love interest/damsel-in-distress, and Jason Dohring elevated to series to a whole new level once they began to develop his character, Joseph, into a third lead. I loved that the love interest loved the vampire. For once, it wasn't all about how to cure the vampire so he could love the mortal. Don't get me wrong...there's some of that, but Myles' Beth makes it pretty clear she'd go over to the vampire side anytime. Thanks to the writers/producers, who managed to wrap it up in a mostly satisfactory way, in spite of only having one season to do it in...we're not left hanging. This one-off little series had a lot more storyline left to go, but I recommend it to all of the vampire-philes out there because it has a strong cast, solid story, and it's lots of fun.
