Based on the novels by Tanya Huff, this show revolves around PI Vicki Nelson - formerly a detective with the Metropolitan Toronto Police. She was losing her sight, but quit the force rather than accept a desk job. However, her last case turns out to be a doozy, involving vampires and the supernatural. She decides to team up with a vampire named Henry and ex-lover Mike Celluci to battle the forces of evil both normal and paranormal.
Here's a couple quotes from the first episode which made me like the show even more, I have to have humor in my sci fi shows or its just not worth it:
Vicki: So she fed on you?
Henry: That's one reason to take a mortal lover.
Vicki: Didn't you notice the marks on your neck?
Henry: My neck wasn't the only place she put her mouth.
Henry: I've lived a long time… almost 500 years.
Vicki: Wow! Yeah, I wouldn't have pegged you for a day over 450.
Henry: I use a great moisturizer.
Two other things this show has going for it: its a Canadian show( I have to support the Canadian shows, okay how many shows do I watch now that are filmed in Vancouver, I think almost all of them), and plus Kyle Schmid.
