Moonlight’s Back- Mick’s Mortal

When last we saw the lovely Mick, he had become mortal and no longer feared the garlic.

Yep, our favorite (current) TV vamp can look at himself in the mirror and drink orange juice instead of a real Bloody Mary. But just how long will this last?

Oh, you know the answer. Really. You can’t have a vampire show with a used-to-be.

What’s this? Mick hanging out in the sun and eating a picnic lunch?

The episode is campy and over-the-top, so what wasn’t to love about it? We even get a vampire smack-down going at the end. If you want some backstage info, check out this CBS video:

    Hi Susan!

    I was surprised to get back a comment; I thought I was emailing Les Moonves, but I’m glad to get back a response from anyone in the TV business! I like your blog so I ADDED YOU TO MY “FAVORITES” list! So you have another fan, right here!

    Could you please tell me, Susan, why “Shark” was cancelled? I tried googling it asking the question, but got no real answers. I am so disappointed they cancelled it because watching James Woods every week was a real treat, he is such an edgy, fine actor, and the plots, characters and dialogue were so good. Did you ever see the movie, “True Believer” from the eighties that he starred in? That’s when I became a James Woods fan! Back to “Shark”; I also enjoyed the subplot about his being a single father to the excellent Danielle Panabaker who played “Julie” (or as he affectionately called her, “Jules”). I am a retired Marriage, Family and Child Therapist (California license) so maybe that’s why!

    There isn’t that much on that is that good, so I really miss this show. I have MS so I watch a lot of TV (no, I’m not in a wheelchair, but still…)! In the past, I really, really liked shows like “LA Law”, “The Practice,” “Twin Peaks”, and “Frasier”, so if that tells you anything about my demographic, those were my “must see” TV programs! I also like “Deal Or No Deal” (I don’t know why, but I do!), some “20/20’s”, “Boston Legal” (no surprise there, I’m sure) and once in awhile, “CSI”.

    I will continue to read your fine blog, but in the meantime, could you tell me why such a fine show with a good actor and supporting cast was cancelled? Could it be the ratings? If it was, look at the off-the-charts ratings of “American Idol”; was it too intelligent to stay on TV?

    Thanks, Susan!
