The first episode sucked. Last night i caught episode 2 and found it to be an improvement. The biggest problem I have is the casting of BLADE. He just is not blade. I hate to slam the guy but he cant act, and certainly doesnt play the bad ass well.
I missed the episode last night once again.. I'm glad they are showing these often on encore.. Its getting really good numbers.. As a matter of fact the first episode recieved the best numbers for any Spike TV show..
i remember i was watching spike one night and they had the two main characters from blade, some rapper dude playin wesley's roll and some other FBI chick and they were talking about the movie during the commercials of the airing of the texas chainsaw massacre remake which was the only reason i was watching. Even though it wasnt even close to being as brilliant as the origional it was still entertaining.
Yea I've actually grown to like the series.. Even though I really miss Snipes as Blade I think it is still pretty good.. My only gripe is that I wish the stories were self contained in one episode.. Instead of dragging one story on for a whole season maybe longer.. There are so many stories that could be told surrounding Blade..
Yea I still enjoy the series though.. I am a huge Wesley Snipes fan but I think Kirk Jones is doing an OK job.. Its a decent little show but I wish they had individual episodes instead of an ongoing saga.. There are lots of Blade stories that could be told..
Yea its Stick Fingaz.. I never really set out to compare it to the movies.. I mean you can't.. Its just a TV show. The lower budget isn't going to be able to afford what gave the movies there sparkle. Not to mention that Guillermo del Toro directed the second..
I don't have much against Kirk Jones.. He doesn't have to do much except scowl and pull off some kung fu stuff.. I mean the character of Blade I think anyone could do.. Excpet of course the fighting stuff.. I think were just hung up on it not being Wesley Snipes.. Look at it this way, at least they didn't cast 50 Cent or Busta Rhymes..
Admittedly the show was not that great at first but as I watch the story grow and the actor get comfortable in their roles it's getting a lot better. Sticky Fingaz or whatever his name is will never be Blade as Wesley Snipes was Blade but he dosen't have to be, he just has to be this version of Blade and all in all it's not that bad. I like his partner Chin (or whatever) he is really filling out his role and so is Krista walking that fine line between a full on evil vampire and doing what's right. There's my two cents..... and that's about all it's worth.
