1.0 out of 5 stars Found In Buffy's "Garbage" Utter Trash, Rubbish, Beyond Poor......., 28 July 2009
This review is from: Blood Ties - Complete Season 1 [DVD][2006] (DVD)
I feel I have to respond to redress the ridiculously high and unwarranted rating of the Vampire series called "Blood ties". No doubt many people have been duped thinking it's a high quality show much like Buffy the Vampire slayer, or some such thing. Unfortunately you have been tricked by desperate American fans knowing this show has been cancelled and for good reason. It's not even mediocre fare.

Clearly there are parallels to Buffy the Vampire slayer and its spin-off series Angel but it honestly doesn't deserve comparison. Calling this a mediocre show is a disservice to the word mediocre. There is nothing quality about this show. The only similarity is vampires and a female lead. Note that I did not say a strong female lead even though the so-called writers try to make her that way.

Now if you think "charmed" is a good series you can disqualify my comments because this is a diluted Buffy styled Vampire Show aimed at the "charmed" demographic . No quality writing/stories, no good action, no quality drama but I'm sure you girls can live with the handsome guys regardless. For those with a little taste try Buffy , Angel or Firefly you'll find guys/girls to lust over with characters and stories you'll *really care about* at the same time.

Completely agree. This was boring as hell. Whoever gives it five or even four stars is either a desperate fangirl/boy, or has no idea what good television is.

I'm sure you're right about this recycled drek but Angel was certainly not important-and Buffy only marginally more.
