What: First, we need to clarify several things.
- This does not have any connection whatsoever to the Milla Jovovich movie.
- I mean, look at the DVD cover! They are very serious and British and are wearing so many clothes!
- But, er, it is about vampires, actually.
- But the word "vampire" is never, ever used. They are Code 5s, and they are rarely seen.
- I know, yes, lots of vampire stuff around these days!
- But this is from 1998, so ha.
- And the focus is heavily on scientific methods and police investigation.
- And each episode name is in Latin. Classy!
- Also, no thinly veiled antiabortion rhetoric here.
- Oooh, and there is Jack Davenport! We adore Jack Davenport.
- And! You get to see Jane Bennet (Susannah Harker) and Stringer Bell (Idris Elba) work together!
- Plus, someone from True Blood played a vampire here first.
Comparable to: It is kind of X-Files-ish. But British.
Representative quote: "Our free range days are over."
You might not like it if: You cannot stand one more vampire thing, ever, not even for Stringer Bell.
How to get it: You can watch it on IMDb and Hulu.
