It’s been a while since there has been a vampire show on TV. Angel was just a continuation of Buffy. Blade was an action show. Moonlight is somewhere in between. It’s gritty and romantic, which isn’t appalling. Unlike Angel and Forever Knight, Mick St-John isn’t that old of a vampire, so the flashbacks all take place in the 1950s to 1970s.
Alex O’Loughlin plays Mick St-John, a vampire private detective. He is a vampire who fully remembers what it meant to be human and longs to be human.
It was announced on December 4th that Moonlight would return for a second season next year. That is good news.
This was a great way to end this mid-season. Coraline is still alive and we don’t really know what happened with her. Beth still has mixed feelings about Mick. Mick has got mixed feelings about Beth. Things are all messed up. Beth and Mick find out that even Josef has a heart.
I really enjoyed this season and I am glad that Moonlight will be back next season with either a half season of a complete one.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
