Moonlight: The Complete Series

Moonlight: the Complete Series

This was a marvelous, but unfortunately short-lived, series on CBS that aired during the 2007-2008 television season. Alex O'Laughlin starred as Mick St. John, a hot young vampire who has served as protector to a human girl (now a woman), Beth Turner, played by Sophia Miles. Beth has become an investigative reporter for a web journalism site, and as the series begins, she finds herself attracted to the strange man who keeps hanging around her periphery. As the series progressed, we saw the relationship between Mick and Beth advance, complicated when Mick believes he's on the track of a cure for vampirism that will return him to the land of the living. Supporting cast members, such as Jason Dohring as Josef and Shannon Sossomon as Coraline often stole the show, but at its heart it was a vampire romance series, predating True Blood. And O'Laughlin and Myles had steamy chemistry with each other! The series suffered from airing during a year with a writer's strike, so only 16 episodes were produced. [If you enjoy this series, you may also enjoy the Forever Knight series, the True Blood series and the Blood Ties series -- all available on DVD.] -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library
