Moonlight Video Promo ~ Creepy vs Sexy

Since CBS is going back to the beginning tonight by rerunning Moonlight's pilot episode (No Such Thing as Vampires #1x01), I thought we should do the same. This is one of the original promo videos for our show. Creepy vs Sexy ~ comparing our modern Mick to the old vision of a vamp in Nosferatu. Obviously, the network realized right from the start what they had on their hands in Alex O'Loughlin. Yum, indeed!

This video also has one of my favorite dialogue exchanges between Mick and Beth, which is from the pilot.

"So, we're talking Vampires?" ~ Beth

"You know, some people actually find them attractive." ~ Mick

"Really?" ~ Beth with a very clear look of disbelief on her face

"Yea" ~ Mick ~ The look Alex gives as he says that single, resigned word is perfect.

Did you notice one quick scene flash that is from the original filming before the recasting? It shows the back of the first Beth's head (played by Shannon Lucio) with Mick at his apartment door. You can also tell it is the old footage because of Mick's shorter hair and the type of shirt he is wearing... totally different from the Henley's and steamy button down shirts we have come to know & love. *grin* Even the door and apartment are different. Check out the image that is freeze framed on the video before you hit play and you will see what I mean. :)

I too love Moonlight. And I know this is a little off the topic of the video posted above. I want you to know that I have your RSS feed on my home page and I find it very enlightening! I thank you for keeping up with all the news on Moonlight!
