  • We open with a woman casing a house and checking out the animal heads on the wall. In comes the owner who hears something and gets a revolver. He walks into the den and is attacked by something big and quick. The Police find his head on his desk.moreless

    Entertaining story that could have been better if not for the giveaways early in the plot. Maybe in the first season we might have had some doubts as to what we they were dealing with but even at the point in which the gentlemen was attacked and the placement of the body and the head we knew it was a Werecat.

    The story all fit together pretty well. Mike was a little preoccupied with knowing the woman was guilty but not really trying to understand the circumstance and why it happened. Before Vicki and Henry came up with motive it seemed so random except for the heads on the wall. Once we saw the plaques above the heads things fell into place. This victim (murderer) found a way to kill humans legally.

    Again it is a case of anything different doesn't have a right to exist argument which of course doesn't hold water. Not that murdering him was right, but her killing was retribution for a serial killer. Look at the number of heads on his wall.

    Balance seems to be restored by Mike, Vicki, and Henry an d Mike did the right thing by letting her go home. I was left with the feeling that there was going to be a lot of explaining to do, but that's no different than usual. As far as Mike's new partner is concerned, maybe its time to get her into the loop if things are going to work out between them and to make sure he doesn't get her killed.

    An entertaining episode with very little drama involved. I enjoyed the subject matter more than the story so I gave it an 8.5. Thanks for reading...moreless
  • This episode centered more around the supernatural than the characters which i think was very inportant as it showed the characters really getting stuck into the investigation.

    i have to say i was dissappointed that there weren't more scenes with henry and vicki flirting coz there isn't enough of those to watch : ) however i did enjoy the scenes that they had together as it showed their witty banter and friendship. i was a bit dissappointed that mike didn't come out of the interogation room much but loved the end with him and henry, 'i hate him!' lol. really looking forward to the nxt epi hopefully we will see more of the charaters relationships unfold. i absolutely love this show and its characters and i pray that lifetime realizes that they have a gem of a show in their hands!moreless
  • Bad lighting over Chemistry.

    It took me looking at some screen caps of "last season's" show's to put my finger on it. The lighting was completly off! Every shot that was suppossed to be at night no matter who it was seemed like it was broad daylight, even Henry! There was no "mood" set. When I looked at the screen caps fom doa and wild blood I thought"wow Henry, and mike look amazing in these." That's when it hit me. You shouln't be seeing them that clear. At least not Henry. It looked like Kyle was at a photo shoot. Other than that there was the lack of chemistry, tension and synergy between the characters. But that's something that bad lighting can produce. Take away the mood and the mystery goes with it. Hopefully someone reads this that can do something about it. Even if they just used a filter on the night shot's I think they'd see an improvement. It's a real vital time for Bloodties if we're going to get picked up by someone else. Well That's my two cent's. I don't think it was so much the show's as the mood.moreless
  • Based on book number two Blood Price this episode was full for on hour and needs sharp eyes and ears to keep up. Love the Vicki/Henry moments!!!

    I loved the Vicki/Henry time in the beginning together was so great! They are growing closer and the comment about it only takes a blood transfusion was classic.

    This weeks epsiode really had my interest because the core was so closely bases on the second book and I was waiting to see how they played it out. Granted they only have 1 hour to get a who plot of a book into the show but it wasn't half bad. I would have like to seen more about the family and thier "secert" lives cause man in the book it rocked. I think that is why it might have cause confusion for others. Mike is growing that he can see more than just black and white now but I would like to see more play with his partner.

    I loved how Henry wasn't going to back down in the shed to protect Vicki, interesting to see Vampire vs cat.moreless
  • Though the character interaction between Henry, Vicki, and Mike was wonderful to see, there were scenes in this show that just did not strengthen the uniqueness and potential that Blood Ties has to be a wonderful show.moreless

    The opening scene on the baclony as Henry speaks to Vicki of how he sees the world and of what may happen should he turn her was wonderful to watch. The interaction between Mike and Henry was an equally perfect portrayal of the continuing tug of war between the two men, their unspoken respect for each other and their tug of war with Vicki, however on a scene to scene basis the story got lost in an obvious attempt to give Dylan Neal's character his moment. Honestly, there was too much time spent on an interrogation that did little to promote the plot. The idea of this story would have been better fleshed out in perhaps two episodes, for the tease of another mythological culture living side by side in the Blood Ties world deserved no less. It was very difficult to find symapthy for the weirs and to justify the rushed ending with any kind of emotion other than "well, that was it?" Also, the barn scene where Henry confronts a weir for the first time was embarassing and a bit over the top. It seems to me that a vampire as experienced as Henry would have been able to find a better way to greet this newest member to the 'living legend club'. The 'hissy fit' he had would have been better served by perhaps giving Henry a new insight into himself by allowing him the ability to communicate with the weir while it was in weir form, or at least calm her down so that she would return to her humna form and talk with them both. I loved that htye used a real cat and not tried to generate an computer effect. Put all together this episode had elements in it that every Blood Ties fan was waiting for but didn't get out of D.O.A., however, we are still being subjected to plots that deserve more time and more fleshing out than the 45 minutes allowed. I say if BT gets renewed for a true second season, that the writers need to start thinking out of the box of episodic television. These characters and the supernatural world they are trying to create deserve more time to be developed. String us along, its okay we can take it as long as it is written so well that we are encouraged to suspend our disbelief.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Vicki: Outside of their driver's licenses they don't have school records, medical records, immunizations... I mean they've been totally off the grid for their entire lives.
      Henry: Neither do I, that doesn't make me a killer. (Vicki gives him a look) Huh, bad example.

    • (About Mike)
      Henry: You know, I like him. I'm going to regret having to draw him being eaten by Hellhounds.
      Vicki: Would you get your coat? We have work to do.
      Henry: (Looking at his sketch) They need bigger teeth

    • (Making an airy bowing gesture with his hand to Henry)
      Mike: Your Lordship.
      Henry: Constable.

    • Henry: You think she's... different?
      Mike: I was gonna go with creepy and freakish, but yeah, "different" kinda sums it up.

    • Mike: It's complicated...
      Vicki: That is my line.

    • Felicia: You can't charge me for driving around in my car.
      Kate: No, but killing a man is still generally frowned upon.

    • (Looking up at the night sky)
      Vicki: What do you see?
      Henry: It's hard to describe. Not just the points of lights others see, for me the sky is lit up like midday.
      Vicki: Is the whole night like that for you?
      Henry: It's like living your life in Technicolor. All the colors are brilliant, intense. I see points of the spectrum people can't even imagine. And the people, people. The people that glow. Their breath, their blood, pulsing beneath the surface of their skin. It's heady.
      Vicki: I wish I could experience that.
      Henry: All it takes is a simple blood transfusion.
      Vicki: Hmm. I've been branded by a demon, all I'd need is to turn into a vampire.
      Henry: I'd admit it does have its costs. You'd lose your life.
      Vicki: Might miss that.
      Henry: You'd lose the day.
      Vicki: Also one that's hard to lose.
      Henry: You'd lose your friends, your family. You'd lose me, what we have.
      Vicki: Like you lost Christina.
      Henry: Like I lost Christina.
      Vicki: This whole vamp territorialism thing is a bitch.
      Henry: Hm. I suppose it's Nature's way of preventing us from turning too many friends and lovers.
      Vicki: It can't be beat?
      Henry: With control. We can learn not to kill one another. Sometimes you wind up regretting that course of action even more.
      Vicki: People call me a pessimist.
