Coming Soon...

Most of you know about my fascination with the TV show Moonlight. It was only on for one season and has been mourned by many since it was cancelled.  CBS received more letters requesting that it brought back than they ever have any other show.  Sadly, it did not happen, due to no fault of CBS but the production company that created it.

The show was about Mick St. John, an 85 year old vampire who was a private investigator.  He is a reluctant vampire, having been turned on his wedding night in 1952.  He is full of angst about his existence, always wishing that for a 'normal' life.  In 1985 he rescued a 4 year old girl whom his ex-wife Coraline kidnapped in an effort to be reunited with Mick.  He saved Beth and killed Coraline, (or so he thought) and then watched over her, to make sure she was safe.

When Beth was 26 she worked for Buzzwire, an internet news station and she and Mick 'met' again.  Beth's diary will tell her story as Moonlight was told from Mick's POV.  It will start when Beth is 16 and continue though the TV series and beyond. 

You'll soon find out that Beth is pretty headstrong; Mick calls her pushy which is pretty polite actually.  She's determined, shall we say and will finagle to get her way.  She just doesn't know what to do with a vampire!

Please join me in July when Beth's Diary starts.  You'll meet lots of fun characters, like Josef, a 400 year old vamp who is going on 25, rolling in the bucks and encourages Mick to 'feed his inner vamp'!

Hope to see you there!

Moonlight was my FAVORITE show! I loved it. And I sent letters, signed petitions, and I still think they made a HUGE mistake cancelling the show. So I am looking forward to reading this blog. Love Mick and Beth!

Hope said...

Thanks ladies! Stephanie, Moonlight was my favorite too and I miss it so much! Have you ever checked out any of the ML fan fic sites? If not you really should.

Stephanie said...

I didn't know there were ML fan fic sites! Might have to check that out.

Hope said...


There are a few sites that I've found and like.

If you go to the WMHD post 'Only in My Dreams' in the comments section you will find some of them listed. That was a couple of months ago. The sites are kind of fun and worth reading if you like ML!

Hope -
I was flipping around the channels last night and noticed that the WB (?) and SyFy are both playing repeats of this show. I'd never heard of it until I saw your new blog and now I've set my DVR to start recording the old episodes. I hope I LOVE it!

I think you will like it! It is an awesome show and it is ridiculous that it didn't make it past the first season since it won several awards when it was on. I think it was a little too edgy for CBS at the time, it was before True Blood and the Vampire Diaries and broadcast TV just wasn't ready for it.

I hope you'll like Beth's Diary, it will be a fun story to write.

I was watching it the other night when they had it on the CW. It would be awesome if they would bring it back, but I think Alex who played Mick is on the new Hawaii 5-O. Of course that doesn't mean much because he was also on 3 Rivers while it lasted.

Hope said...

Yes, Alex is going to be on H5O in the fall. Good for him, bad for ML lovers. A writer friend was in California Thursday night to watch the premier on CW. Trevor Munson was there also. I'm afraid the best we could hope for would be a ML movie. Oh well, at least we have fan fic!!!
