    HORRIBLE!!! The only thing that can save this series is Wesley Snipes. Sticky Fingaz shoulda stayed with rap. He cant act and he cant fight. The reason they dont focus on 'Blade' in Blade: The Series, is because Sticky makes a bad Blade. I'll give him some cred, Ive seen him do guest spots on other things, and as long as hes playing a rapper/drug dealer in the interrogation HORRIBLE!!!

Thats more true to life for him. He doesnt need acting skills then. Expand

    This is the worst piece of sh@t that i have ever seen. Why in the world did they put sticky fingaz in this? He is so stiff, and his acting is like something from some B rate teen slasher flick from the seventies. The guy who played spawn would have been a better choice, I guess they could'nt afford him, and went with what they had. They need to scrap the whole series, get rid of This is the worst piece of sh@t that i have ever seen. Why in the world did they put sticky fingaz in this?

    trite writing, obligatory plot devices, wooden acting, cliched characters and fight choreography that was clumsy. david goyer (and geoff johns) has produced a truly boring television show.

    Man who wrote this? The Blade I know dont get hit by normal vamps and would not have teamed up with the white girl. Heck I think he would have killed her. And Jones need to watch the movie because he makes a lame attempt of acting like the movie blade.

    Terribly boring with no plot line growing whatsoever. Too much gore and grunts from the main character.

    Doesn't live up to the first movie, which was one of the worst things ever produced in Hollywood (although perhaps the sequels could give it a run for its money?). If your favorite things are beer, tits and video games (not necessarily in that order), you'll love this mess.

    Hahahaha, horrible, acting, crap, effects, trash, all of this together adds to a very dull show. Especially this crap as line, " i worked for your brother, he was a good man. Wow, pretty bad. All in all, horrible show.

    You would think they would cast someone with at least minimal martial arts skills as Blade. Also, as I recall, the Blade in the movies whupped a$$. This one barely makes it in every fight. Boring...

    Total crap, you thought that by 2006 you'll see better tv episodes than xena, hercules, star trek etc and end up with some POS acting average FX and the worst of all the actor who plays blade trashes all the awesome work snipes did as blade in the movies. this is just crap, redo/ add snipes/ bigger FX budget and best series ever for sure.

    Certainly a superhero needs to have gravitas, but Jones takes it too far -- further than Wesley Snipes in the "Blade" movies.

    "Blade" could work as an earnest fantasy. It just doesn't, yet.

    A tediously bloody bore.
