    I for one enjoyed this show, it deserved a much longer run. If the networks were to pick this show up again, with most of the orginal cast(with the exception of Mark Frankel) . It wouldn't be the same with someone else in the role of Julian Luna, but with the right cast choice, it could be pulled off. I know that the show would be a great success, now, after all Buffy and Angel turned out to be great shows and the same can be said of Charmed.

    At the time this show aired, I think it was ahead of it's time, no one was ready for such a show but now-for sure.

    I loved the show. My sister gave me the DVD set a few years ago and I find myself watching it every so often. I got into it because of Mark Frankel, I loved him in Sisters. What a sad ending to a promising career.

    I first watched it when it was on regular TV cuz I liked the RPG at the time, but I only have the videos? Are there any good special features on the DVD?

    kelly3546, I totally agree! The show was ahead of its time and it was cancelled just when it was getting good. If only V:TM would try another series and go where K:TE couldn't!
    Cheers.

    I couldn't agree with you more! This is an excellent series that was about a decade too soon. I have it on DVD. It would be perfect for a big screen treatment-if the Hollywood crew could possibly keep the correct theme. You have done an excellent job as the moderator of this series. Bravo for all of your work! Blessed me in return:

    I'd rather see it done better and more in the style of VtR

    It's even more annoying that Showtime actually agreed to do a second series of this show and show it instead of FOX. After Marks deaththough they canned it. Mark was amazing in the show, but I think enough time has passed to try again with a new actor.

    maybe try a new cast a new city, i have no idea what the new game will do to the powers and abilities in the series, if there is one, but that might be something to consider
