Blood Ties

13 Mar

If you’re anything like me you miss tv shows that you want to see. You know ahead of time that they’re supposed to be on and then blamo, nothing until after the show has aired. I knew months ago that Lifetime television was premiering a new show called Blood Ties in March. I even posted about it at Jaci Burton’s site. Imagine my surprise when I surfed the web today to see references to the show. A few people asked when it would be replayed, which egged me into going to the web site.

They didn’t have a date posted. Crap! They did have the first hour posted for free on itunes. Yes, I downloaded itunes just to watch this show. It worked great. (Took awhile to load, but it worked wonderfully.) No commercials, just 45 mins of a vampire show. The show was mediocre for me. It didn’t suck completely, but I wasn’t enthralled by any stretch of the imagination. I liked the heroine, Vickie, she was quite capable of snarky comments. At one point she’s watching a woman walk away and says, “somebody give that woman a doughnut please.”

What did I think about it? Well, I keep traveling back in time to when Buffy came out. I liked it, hell who am I kiddin’, I loved it, but it was corny in the beginning. It grew into a great show though. The same can happen with this show. It has many corny elements, but the growth potential exists. I’ll tune in until I feel like the potential has dried up. Blood Ties airs on Sunday nights at 10:00 on Lifetime television.

    I have to agree with you. This first episode was a bit meh for me, but it had potential, and for that reason I will give it a few more episodes 🙂

    I wish I’d caught it. I saw the reviews and checked the website, too.

    And it’s true, Buffy strarted out one way and turned into something else entirely. I still miss the show.

    Dammit, I missed it and I really wanted to see it.


    I’ve been tooling around blogland and see it’s gotten mixed reviews.

    Though I loved Buffy from the first episode. *sigh*

    I was kind of Meh about it too–the last five minutes were the best by far. Jordan actually emailed me about it and (this is sick) I set a reminder on my Outlook calender so I wouldn’t forget. *blush*
    It’s on oposite BSG (and Without a Trace) though sooooo I actually DVR’ed it when they replayed it.
