Description

Immortal warrior Blade continues his fight against a shadowy underworld of vampires who are threatening total domination of mankind. Blade meets Krista, a recently dispatched US military combat medic who is investigating her brother's suspicious murder. As Krista is pulled into the underworld, she teams up with Blade and his partner, Shen, to infiltrate the vampires from the inside and out. However, Blade has to keep strict tabs on Krista, who could easily succumb to the dark forces of the underworld she now inhabits.

Needs work

The show was absolutely attrocious. 1. Cliche and unimaginative story. Come now, the fire alarm is pulled in a police station and everyone just walks out, allowing any-ol' someone to duck into a closet and then case the joint after everyone leaves? Please. As someone else mentioned, what's with the glasses needing to identifiy human or vampire? Blade states himself in the film that he can identify them easily on his own by the way they move, the way they smell. And what is with Krista? "Can I see my brother's file?" "I was a Sergeant in the Army." Oh well heck, here's a badge, you should have said so sooner. Pfft. 2. Kirk Jones. Honestly, I've seen two interviews with the guy during UFC events and the dude seems high both times. The best PR that Spike/Marvel can do is put a gag on Jones and keep him from ever opening his mouth in public. For that matter, apply that to the show as well. He exudes no personality whatsoever, which is one thing that Wesley Snipes brought to the role in the movies. Jones has no presence, no timing as an actor and absolutely no athleticism to bring to the fight scenes. He seems barely capable of handling Blades signature weapon, his... you know... blade. 3. Too much, too soon. They've already played all their cards. We are in the third act already. Imagine the conflict, the drama, the build up of the first television series of Blade if they had taken all these story lines that got crammed into the first episode and introduced them slowly to us. Eased us into these new faces. A. Blade, we know and love him already (well, Snipes' version anyway). B. Krista, who is she? What happened to her overseas? Create the bond between her and her twin brother for us. Don't force us to assume it. C. Shen. New support man. How did the hook up with Blade? How long have then known eachother? They just immediately have a connection and partnership? It would have been much more interesting to see Shen as uncertain and even a little frightened of the whole situation. His humor was good, but would have more impact if we got to see it emerge naturally... more as nervous humor that helps him cope with the madness he suddenly finds himself in. D. Chase. Meh... seemed a stereo-typical vamp (no pun intended). Nothing to see here, move along. E. Marcus. Steal names from Underworld much? Name theft aside, Marcus and the house Cthun have potential, or could have at least. What they are trying to accomplish isn't all that different than what Frost was aiming for in the first film. Okay, it's really the exact same thing, but let's overlook that for a moment. How much more interesting would it have been to keep us, the viewers, in the dark regarding the machinations of The House of Cthun as lead by Marcus. I'm talking old-school X-Files seasons where they baited and hooked you in about seven different directions the entire season only to smack you in the mouth with something entirely unexpected at the season finale. Instead, all the cards are on the table, we know what everyone is up to and what the inevitable conclusions will be. Now, if they prove me wrong on any of these things, then bully for them. I hope they do, but I'm not counting on it.

I Was Pleasantly Surprised

When I first saw the commercials I was skeptical. But after seeing the premiere on Spike TV it erased all of that. I was surprised at how much gore they could put on tv -- and they keep true to the Blade movies in the series (The first person to die had died just a minute into the show and his throat was sliced, blood splurting everywhere -- I stress everywhere). Overall the plot also doesn't let down the Blade Universe and the scenery and locations really let you see the "bad side" of Detriot with its deteriorating buildings and dangerous and desperate people. The only real downfall was that at certain points the dialogue would get a little bland or stale and shine at other parts. 4 out of 5 stars. Good Job Spike TV with your first original show. Now your becoming the Man's Channel. Cut it out with all this Star Trek crap.

Not bad, Not Bad...

I won't lie, when the first credits started rolling in the series opener, I held my breath. I just never pictured anyone but Wesley Snipes playing the character. I had doubts that Mr.Kirk Jones (Formely from the rap group Onyx fame) could pull this off. Also I was worried how "Blade" would be treated on the small screen. My fears have been laid to rest. Kirk seemed to take his role seriously, and the producers of the show obviously went out of their way to stay true to the previous 3 films. Ok, Blade the Series hits the ground running, question is...can they keep it up? We'll see.
