Wanna know something? Moonlight sucks. I finally have to admit it. I’ve been avoiding episodes 2 and 3 for the last couple of weeks and I completely missed episodes 4 and 5. And I think I’m okay with that. My guess? The only thing keeping that show alive is Jason Dohring.
There was a scene in the third episode where Mick and Beth are walking down the street (the shady side mind you) that was so terrible – I can’t remember the actual lines but the delivery was akin to a bad impersonation of William Shatner in his prime on Star Trek. Awful stuff! Awful, awful, awful. But I suffered through it and told Mark, “I know it’s terrible but I just want to see Jason Dohring”. Then he wasn’t even in it.
The sad part is that there are glimpses of something that could eventually be good – enough to make me kinda want to tune in to the upcoming episodes to at least fast-forward to the good stuff. Then someone opens their mouth, or Mick floats down a flight of stairs and I snap myself out of it. After all, I remind myself, the title of this post can even be a pun because THEIR VAMPIRES DON’T DUST! I don’t think they can afford the effects so instead they are “paralyzed” by a stake through the heart and then they have to be burned. It must be cheap to set stuff on fire.
Yep, this one is officially lame.
