Forever Knight, Cult Classic
28 September 2005 | by streekie2000See all my reviews

A show I will always remember for the 1am time slot we had here in England. Having to stay awake because of my newborn baby and trying to find anything on TV worth watching, at such a stupid time of night. This is one of the only series I can watch today and it's still as great now as it was the first time I watched it. Absolute brilliance. I have just purchased series 1 and 2 from abroad and am desperate for series 3. A vampire while trying to regain humanity is playing the part of a police detective solving crimes. This is a must see for anyone with wonderful taste in vampire series. (Buffy+ Angel eat your hearts out).
