I’ll admit I was a little hard on “Blade: The Series” when it premiered. I harped on the questionable acting talents of Kirk Jones and Jill Wagner, the mediocre fight scenes and the cheesy “Mutant X” feel of everything. Now that I’ve had some time to chew things over, I gotta say... those complaints are still valid, *but* the developing storylines aren’t half bad. With all the plotting, Vampire Nation politics, secret experiments, rogue vampires, moles and that pesky Daywalker, it’s really hard out there for a vamp.
Last week, we got more background on Blade’s origin, saw how Whistler got that limp and found out that Blade’s Dad is one bad mother-- Shut your mouth! (I was only talkin’ about Blade’s Dad). Also, Krista decided to turn her dying Mom into a vamp-- I’m sure that will end well. If I had one additional nitpick it would be about Pure Bloods and aging. We all know that vampires don’t age, so how exactly does a Pure Blood grow? Charlotte, the tween Pure Blood that Marcus is so deathly afraid of, has obviously been around the block a couple times. Is she going to have a growth spurt? Can Pure Bloods choose to remain a certain age?
