They’ve gone and done it, made a TV Series out of Blade the comic book and movie. In the first five minutes the screen is painted with blood gushing from the neck of a vampire. Very different to the firey death they faced in the movies.
I’ve not read to comic book (sorry, sorry graphic novel) and wouldn’t know how they die in those pages but the gore and brutality seems a little full-on for TV. While I loved the Blade movies (especially the last one, who’d pass up a movie with Ryan Reynolds?) I may give the TV show a miss.
The plot line seems a little thin and there’s not even any real eye candy to keep one entertained, so really, what’s the point.
After watching more of the episode it appears that the blood was just for the intro, the firey death returns… and the vampires have a vaccine so garlic and silver don’t matter so much to them… poor Blade.
