I burned out on the show toward the end of the first season, but I do like that song.

Like the music but haven't seen the show yet.

Ditto, Chris. We stuck it out for part of season two before giving up.

Not Chris Isaak, though it's a good facsimile!

Margot Kinberg said...

Oh, now this is a show I've not watched. Good music though.

They're very careful to have moderately amusing, appropriate closing music, as well. The series is a whole lot like what would happen if one crossed BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER with producer/adapter Alan Ball's previous series SIX FEET UNDER, and it's (if anything) picking up its pace to a fault of late, but I find it amusing enough to catch regularly still. Not enough Janina Gavankar, though.

I caught part of an episode on a free movie channel weekend. Didn't find myself at all attracted to it, though maybe if I had started at the beginning.

Ditto what Chris said -- first comment.

Todd, in the first season each episode was named after a blues tune and it played over the closing credits. I watched the first two seasons and thought it intriguing and much better than the books. Then... it turned into something akin to vampire porn. The sex scenes were often jaw droppingly salacious and exhausting, too athletic to watch without feleilgn liek a creepy voyeur. [Maybe I have issues ;^)]. But I think Ryan Kwanten could always take a completely different career path in movies/video if he wanted to. Wow!

Todd Mason said...

I must admit the sexual activity on this series hasn't bothered me, the way some of the torture sequences can put me off, or the bloodletting and other ugliness on SPARTACUS when I gave that series a chance. And Kwanten has played some interesting other roles, if none too ineluctable as yet.

(And, of course, Janina Gavankar could go the early Shu Qi route, too...but in the States, that kind of production seems to prefer cartoonish-looking folks, or at least the women...)
