Did you ever watch Forever Knight, the tale of an 800 year old vampire police detective seeking redemption for his previous sins and looking to regain his lost humanity?
If you haven't, and you've enjoyed all those angsty vampire stories that have shown up in the media since the 90s, what's stopping you? You can join the fun and the fandom
, to watch along with the, okay, kind of over the top plots at times and 90s special effects, but also the top notch historical research and costuming, alongside breathtaking characterization and the kind of acting that made any flaws fall to the side as we watched these actors sell every. single. moment.
Do you like stories of excessively Catholic former Crusaders and those around them? How about 1100 year old French women with a soft spot for the downtrodden of the world, but who will never admit it?
Or terrifyingly vulnerable mortal coroners who stand up to vampires that can break them like toothpicks?
How about human cops that doggedly and ruggedly solve crimes in a slightly less fashionable yet no less goodhearted way than the aforementioned nigh-invulnerable protagonist? There are many of them of varied ranks and backgrounds, some of whome have wives and children at home, one who has a husband and child, and others of whom have Daddy issues like you wouldn't believe. All are wonderful and just as good - if not better - at their jobs than the aforementioned former Crusader, who loves to be around these people who put themselves in harm's way and don't have his advantages.
How about 2000 year old Roman generals who creep and stalk on their objects of obsession for their own good? (He promises
, and you wouldn't distrust a Roman patrician, would you?)
Or 500 year old ex-Conquistadors who, uh, maybe have a thing for adorble blonde cops with Daddy issues? (Also adorable blondes in general. This is the fandom that had a pairing name for every possible permutation of pairings, after all, and fans of every single character. We love them all, and we love our fellow fans.)
Or even a whole host of secondary characters, many of whom ended up on the Stargates, in a richly populated world of Canadian television filmed in Toronto and actually set in Canada, for once! No generically-named "Seacouver" for this show.
Would you like to revisit that lost era of 90s television? (You would, wouldn't you?)
