Flashback Friday- Television Edition- Blood Ties (2007-2008)

Sometimes, just because we enjoy a television show, does not mean that it is meant to last.

In 2007 and 2008, Lifetime channel produced Blood Ties (2007-2008), based on the books by Tanya Huff.

Detective Vicki Nelson (Christina Cox) is a former cop turned private eye. Her cases are not the standard cases, they are supernatural in nature. Her unforeseen partner Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid), a 470 year old vampire who is the only acknowledged illegitimate son of Henry VIII. Meanwhile, Vicki’s former partner from her police days and ex boyfriend, Mike Celluci (Dylan Neal) is suspicious of Vicki’s motives and her ability to solve what seems to be unsolvable crimes.

Let’s be honest, this was a Lifetime show. There are certain hallmarks of programs that this channel typically airs. But, it was also fun and dark and different from the standard Lifetime program.

Do I recommend it? Why Not?
