20th Century Vampire (1993)

This radio comedy-drama series from the BBC features a fledgling vampire trying to learn all about her new life. It has a number of nice ideas and passable jokes, but for me the series mostly falls flat. […]

She-Wolf of London (1990-1991)

She-Wolf of London is a horror-mystery show that has not really aged well. It works on a monster-of-the-week basis and only one of its twenty episodes deals with vampires. But behind all the cheese and the synth-music there is a partially successful humour to be enjoyed, and a number of interesting episode plots. This British-American co-production is not a show you need to watch, but maybe something to tune into just once, for curiosity’s sake. […]

Blade: The Series (2006)

Blade: The Series is a TV show conceived as a continuation of the three Wesley Snipes Blade films, but it does not star Wesley Snipes. The show’s concept is very promising, but it is bogged down by writing issues. Severe competition and high production costs meant that it was not continued after the first season. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 4] (1999-2000)

Although this season is often maligned by fans, I quite like it. I am happy with the shadowy-organisation plot, the new character constellation works, and there is some outstanding writing to be enjoyed. […]

Demons (2009)

Until last week I had never heard of Demons, even though this short-lived British TV-show was first broadcast in 2009. The show has been derided as a poor Buffy rip-off by some – but it has bigger problems than that. And yet, there are also interesting and entertaining aspects in this medium-quality show. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 3] (1998-1999)

This has always been my favourite season of Buffy, even though it is possibly not the best. It features a couple of strong episodes, but also a number of weak ones. One of season 3’s strengths lies in the fact that the combination of new and returning characters provides an excellent mix. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 2] (1997-1998)

Season 2 has improved acting and it introduces additional characters. The tone and the themes are much darker than in season 1, and the vibe of despair is stronger than anywhere else in the first four seasons. But there is still a good amount of humour mixed in at times. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 1] (1997)

I am hoping to re-watch the entire show over time, and I will post my thoughts here, even though everyone on the planet knows the show already. […]
