...Or are you just happy to see me?
So there is (was) this little show that could, called "Blood Ties". Some of you may have heard of or even seen it?
It is/was about this former homicide detective Vicki Nelson (Christina Cox), who, due to her failing eye sight, has to quit the force, and in turn she opens her own PI agency.
However, her world changes significantly one night, after she witnesses something supernatural and then her subsequent meeting of the almost 500 yr old [45o to be exact] vampire named Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid), bastard son of King Henry the VIII.
Soon they develop not only a friendship , but also a partnership , as they work to confront the things that go bump in the night.
And with the way most good stories go, Vicki must deal, not only with her attraction towards Henry, but with her on again off again relationship with her former homicide detective partner Mike Celluci (Dylan Neal).
"Blood Ties" is (was) a smartly written, well acted TV show, that highlighted wonderful chemistry between its' actors characters with witty dialogue and great (sexual) tension.
Be sure to check it out, if/when you can!
P.S - Currently the fate of this series is in a state of limbo, as the network, under which it was originally produced, has decided to opt out of keeping the show on their schedule, even though there were (and still are) thousands of fans who are dedicated to the show and have pleaded for its' return.
The fans of "Blood Ties" are still fighting the good fight, to either have the show be picked up by another network, revived or have a movie made of it.
"If Insight hasn't dropped it, We haven't lost it".
They have spearheaded another campaign called the 1 million BT fan petition. This is to aim to unite ALL Fans into signing 1 petition to be as one voice of millions, rather than several voices of thousands.
To quote from the article preceding the petition:
"Many fans would like to see the vampire tale continue either as a series or, at least, in the form of a movie to wrap things up. How about you?"
The link is posted below, and as the saying goes: "Where there's a will, there's a way!"
So please, sign the petition, ONE VOTE PER PERSON, though, and let's show them : "Yes, we can!"
