General idea: the Catholic Church versus vampires, set in the modern era.
Interesting because: This is a modern take on an ancient lore. Instead of going after vampires with wooden stakes and garlic, a secret agency run by the Catholic Church uses carbon bullets and garlic tear gas. They use ultraviolet light to detect vampire bites and apply modern military tactics to solving the problem of undead blood-suckers. Is this sci-fi as such? Maybe not in Tony’s tight definition…but maybe. I think of it as a hard sci-fi attempt at understanding a fantasy tale.
Annoying because: This was a TV miniseries; the Sci-Fi channel never turned it into a full TV show.
Best season(s): 1
Worst season(s): N/A — never made it far enough
