I was never a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I watched a number of episodes of course. I think just about everyone did. But I just never got the appeal of a high school vampire slayer. I guess I'm too old or something. But I was watching TV tonight and ended up a new-to-Canada television show I can really sink my teeth into *groan - bad pun I know but I couldn't resist)
The show in question? Blood Ties
Now I don't think this is new to those south of the border. In a most peculiar way, I think it's been showing on the Life Time channel for a while. But what is odd I find, is the show is filmed in Canada and has a mostly Canadian cast and I think it's only now showing up on Canadian TV.
For all those vampire lovers out there (and again oddly enough I'm not one of them) this is a show about a female detective. She's a former cop who left the force due to diminishing eye sight and started her own PI business. In the premier episode, she meets Henry Fitzroy a very hawt 450 year old vampire who helps her. She also has a thing going with her former partner.
I remember hearing about this show a while ago, but I never saw it advertised here. For those interested, the premier was on tonight and I think it will be again Thursday and again Sunday on CITY TV. I'm not sure when it's final resting night (another groaner) will be, but whenever it is - I'm going to be watching.
The show is based on a series of books written by author Tanya Huff. I've never tried her before but I think I just might now.
And in other television news - I FINALLY got to see one of the Nora Roberts movies. I caught the tail end of Montana Sky last night. I hope I haven't missed the other ones!
