After delving into the world of genetics on Mutant X, creator and executive producer Peter Mohan returns to the world of sci-fi/fantasy/horror once more with Blood Ties. Adapted from a popular series from author Tanya Huff, it follows Victoria "Vicki" Nelson (Christina Cox), who left the force due to her failing eyesight and becomes a private investigator/reluctant "warrior princess", as she fights supernatural crimes in Toronto. Aiding her is on/off boyfriend and former partner, Det. Mike Celluci (Dylan Neal, Dawson's Creek); graphic comic-book artist Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid), the illegitimate son of Henry VIII -- and a 480-year vampire, and her assistant Coreen (Gina Holden, Flash Gordon).

Season one (13 episodes) of Blood Ties follows their battle against evil, as they deal with zombies, Medusa, an incubus, ghosts, the Wendigo, and much more. Extras on the four-disc DVD set includes a behind-the-scenes look into the series with interviews from the cast, Peter Mohan, and author Tanya Huff, plus a bonus trailer. Lifetime picked up the series and aired it during the winter and fall of 2007, but decided not to renew the series for a third season in May of last year. However, episodes can still be found online at http://www.mylifetime.com/on-tv/full-episodes/blood-ties/video/.

It was stated by Wikipedia that in November 2008, Kaleidoscope Entertainment, Inc., the Canadian company that produces Blood Ties (www.bloodtiestv.com), was still looking for production partners in bringing the series back, but may be unlikely of its return due to how long it took for it to be filmed. However, the show is currently in syndication in several countries across the world, as fans are still campaigning in bringing Blood Ties back for another season; if a fan that has your heart pumping for more, go to this fansite at www.bloodtiescentral.com.

Blood Ties needs to come back, for it fills the void that was left by Forever Knight, Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Angel and The X-Files, as the heart of the show (literally) is the budding love triangle between Mike, Vicki, and Henry: the heroine in love with the day and the night -- the good guy and the bad boy. Who will Vicki choose is the eternal question, as season one of Blood Ties comes to Canada and America June 2.

A true crime series with bite
