Why do I do it? Better yet, how do I continue to do it? The “it” in question being falling for television series that are doomed from the start. Arrested Development, Freaks & Geeks, Pushing Daisies, Keen Eddie, John Doe, Miss Match, Veronica Mars, Firefly, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, The Tick, Jack of All Trades… Hold on, I need a minute. Oh crap. Maybe I curse good shows by watching them?! No wait, I’ve never seen any of Dead Like Me yet. Crisis averted.
Well, here I go again. I just got the first disc of the first (and only) season of Moonlight. I had only loosely heard of the premise–like unraveled floss loosely. Okay, I really had no idea what it was about, until my vampire-o-meter went off. Anyway, imagine my delight to find out the main character, Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin), was not only a vampire but a private investigator to boot! Aaaaaand there are great noir-ish style voiceovers (and he might be super hot, too)! Bonus! Underworld franchise, vampire alum Sophia Myles & Veronica Mars sweetie man, Jason Dohring round out the main characters!
Alas, not only is this WTF moment-worthy because there is only one season, but like a fool, I only got one disc from Netflix! Woe is me! Normally, there is an epic battle for #1 Position status with my shared Netflix account, and the queue is expertly planned out to provide maximum entertainment payout. WTF is wrong with me?! More importantly, WTF is wrong with all of these networks giving up on shows too soon?! Gaa. I guess I’ll just have to cherish the remaining episodes…when they arrive ;(
