I did not even know that this television show existed until someone mentioned it in a YouTube video, and so my brother GC and I decided to watch it.
This show looks and feels more like it was made in the 1990s even though it is from 2006, it is not as good as the Blade movies, but for a low-budget show it was just watchable enough.
Some of the actors and actresses did better than you would think, but Blade in this show was not as tough or as good of a fighter as Blade in the movies.
Blade had even less of a personality in this show, the actor did somewhat better than expected, but he was not the main character.

Hello True George,
Yep, I did not know about it back then though, but thanks to Maven Of The Eventide I learned that during her review of it.
It is a shame that Wesley Snipes turned down the project, and that it did not make it to a better TV network like the creators wanted originally.
Thank you for commenting,
