|1||Closed CaptioningVideoDark Knight, Pt. 1||When a series of "vampire" murders sweeps the city, Toronto Police detective Nick Knight is put on the case. However, unknown to everyone except medical examiner Natalie Lambert, Nick is also a vampire trying to regain his own mortality. When the next victim is a guard at the Natural History Museum, Nick and Detective Schanke discover that a Mayan ceremonial goblet was also taken, one which curator Alyce Hunter notes was used to drink the blood of sacrifice victims. Forced to retreat to his loft apartment during the day, Nick darkens the room and drinks animal blood from a goblet identical to the one stolen from the museum while anxiously waiting for Natalie to find a cure. When Alyce comes across a century-old photograph of an archaeologist who looks exactly like Nick, she discovers the cup was one of a pair that, together, are thought to cure vampirism. Though attracted by the museum curator, Nick is forced to resist his impulse to drink her blood and returns home shaken by how easily he could have killed Alyce. Told that he must stop drinking blood for a cure to work, Nick insists that it is too difficult to change, but Natalie threatens to stop her treatments if he doesn't cooperate. Meanwhile, when a homeless couple disappears from his neighborhood, Nick worries that they are the latest victims of the vampire killer. After telling Natalie about Lacroix, the vampire who brought him over to the netherworld centuries ago, Nick reveals that his master would do anything to keep him from recovering his mortality. Suspecting Lacroix of being behind the killings and the theft of the goblet, Nick learns of the murder of his homeless friend, Topper, but wonders what has become of his companion, Jeanie. Turning to Janette, another vampire from 13th Century France, Nick is told of Lacroix's whereabouts and plunges headlong toward a confrontation, unaware he is being followed by Alyce.||40:57||$0.99||View in iTunes|

As Alyce watches Lacroix taunt Nick with the Mayan goblet that could spare him his tortured life, she accidentally reveals her presence and is stopped while trying to escape. Torn between saving the life of a woman that he thinks he could love and the goblet that could restore his humanity, Nick chooses to rescue Alyce, watching helplessly as the cup crashes to the floor below. Racing for his car to avoid burning up in the morning sun, Nick locks himself in the trunk to remain until darkness falls again. However, finding his partner's car, Schanke decides to use it for the day, unaware he is sleeping in the trunk. Although Schanke is unable to get any information, making his way from the car to a hospital office, Nick tells Natalie that Lacroix is not responsible for the killings, confirming his partner's hypothesis that the victims are being chosen because they are homeless donors at a mobile blood bank. Meanwhile, Jack Fenner, the blood mobile's technician, disables Nick's car, nearly killing Schanke in order to mask his responsibility for the killings. Alyce breaks into Nick's apartment and finds the matching jade cup, but when a badly beaten Jeanie arrives, she calls for an ambulance to help the homeless woman. When Fenner arrives looking for Jeanie, Alyce mistakes him for a paramedic and lets him into the loft. However, after he calls home and hears Fenner trying to kill them, Nick hurries to save the women. As fire consumes the loft, Jeanie is led outside to safety, while Nick and Alyce watch Lacroix feasting on the blood of the dying Fenner. Weakened from a lack of nourishment and taunted by Lacroix, Nick offered Alyce's blood as a sacrifice. Though Lacroix encourages him to drink, Nick musters all of his strength to resist the temptation and attacks his master through the wall of flames. However, when Lacroix takes her for himself, Nick kills the vampire with a fiery stake through his heart, but also loses Alyce in the process. Finally, returning to Natalie, Nick is revived with a blood transfusion to continue his struggle to become a mortal.||47:45||$0.99||View in iTunes|

However, when investigators fail to turn up a weapon or any evidence to substantiate his claim, Stonetree is subjected to intense scrutiny by Internal Affairs investigators. Meanwhile, when Nick recalls his own guilt over one of his early killings, he sees his victim while searching the scene of Eddie's death. Though Natalie's examination seems to back-up Stonetree's claim, Inspector Kramer insists on a weapon or the slugs to accept the story. As Nick continues to be plagued by visions of Alexandra, Stonetree grows increasingly restless and insists on going back to the scene to look for evidence himself. As he is visualizing the shooting, Stonetree remembers seeing a tow truck at the end of the alley, unaware he is being followed by Billy. Meanwhile, when he spots Alexandra amid a cluster of waiting passengers, Nick carelessly abandons his car and leaps aboard a bus while trying to find her. Tracing the tow truck to a local junkyard and led to a van that was towed at the time of the shooting, Stonetree locates the two slugs fired at him by the fleeing robbers. However, as Billy emerges from the shadows to take Stonetree hostage, Nick learns the captain is being pursued by Sewell and flies to the junkyard to save him. But, before he can find them, Nick is surprised when Alexandra appears, revealing that she was given eternal life by Lacroix and has returned to seek revenge. When an attempt to escape is thwarted, Stonetree is forced by his captor onto a bridge to be killed. Ignoring his pleas, Billy insists that, by killing the captain with his own gun, his death look like a suicide induced by grief about Eddie's shooting. Meanwhile, Alexandra nearly kills Nick with a jagged stake before he impales her on a long metal bar and heads to rescue Stonetree. Finding Billy taking aim with the captain's pistol, Nick swoops down to save Stonetree from certain death and allows him to arrest his assailant and clear his name in the shooting.||47:40||$0.99||View in iTunes|

Must-See Vampire TV
Count that as three or four stars for those without an interest in blood-sucking undead. Although uneven, there are episodes here that are without equal in the genre. Adopting the "pivotal events X hundred years ago flashback" technique of the movie Highlander AND the roleplaying-game-esque coterie concept of the Vampire: The Masquerade RPG, this show's vampire detective is a contemporary Louis Pointe du Lac (no fear, there's a Lestat-like character, too) with a distinct and fascinating character arc that runs through the show's 70-odd episodes. Key episodes of this first season include "Killer Instinct," which introduces LaCroix, the vampire detective's "sire" and the droll "Stranger Than Fiction," which features an author who is clearly meant to represent Ann Rice--right down to hilarious Rice-esque passages. Season 2 gets better.
great show first airing in early 90's
This show did not come out in 2001, as one reviewer stated. It was airing way back in the early 90's on CBS in America in the "Crimetime after Primetime" series of shows that would begin after the 10/11pm news - depending on your timezone.
Forever Knight!?! Wow! Deja Vous...
It has been a while since I left Canada and Canadian TV programming and it's probably been even longer since this show first ran (2001 according to the imDb). This show introduced me to Geriant Wyn Davies who plays the character of Nicholas Knight and went on to 'star' in a few other CBC television shows including "Black Harbour". I like him as an actor and enjoyed his performance in the show. I think the actor who seemed to be the most outstanding in the show was Nigel Bennett who played Lacroix. His character by far was the most vibrant of the show, the one with the most 'life' (and for an undead that's very impressive!!!). Check his Lacroix and see who he reminds you of in his performance. I liked the premise of the show and watched it quite regularily for some time. However, like a few other Canadian tv series, I always wondered if it could have been done better by the American networks. Canadian tv tends to always look a little cheap when it comes to these kind of shows. I think comedies are more our forte. If you are a fan of vampire related shows (Blade, etc), it's a fairly good watch. If you enjoy watching others experience guilt, remorse and angst about life, or unlife, then it's also a good show. And of course if you are from the Toronto area and want to see parts of your hometown, what the heck!
