Moonlight in Returning Favorites section of new TV Guide Magazine

TV Guide's March 31st to April 13th, 2008 issue features Moonlight in its section on returning shows. Along with the mildly spoilery information is a great photo of Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St John. What a lovely thing to find in your mailbox!

Note ~ they state that Mick was turned in 1947, which is incorrect. He became a Vampire in 1952, on his wedding night.

SPOILER ALERT.... especially for international fans who haven't seen the first 12 episodes :)

Returning Favorites

[Friday] Moonlight

Returns : 4/25, 9/8c, CBS

Where we left off :
Private eye vampire Mick St John (Alex O'Loughlin) saw his fanged friend Josef (Jason Dohring) survive an assassination attempt. Mick's ex Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon), who turned him into a bloodsucker in 1947, gave him a cure that made him temporarily mortal - and ready to cozy up to reporter Beth Turner (Sophia Myles). But Beth might not succumb : After all, when her boyfriend was gunned down, Mick refused to save him by turning him into one of the living dead.

What's next :
"We've always suspected that there are doctors, lawyers, housewives and garbagemen who live among us as vampires," executive producer Harry Werksman says. "We are going to explore the pleasures of being human." Viewers will also learn more about Mick's past and watch him struggle to win back Beth. "As that happens we're going to introduce a romantic foil who makes her wonder if being with a human isn't the way to go," adds executive producer Gabrielle Stanton.

Dead again :
Mick won't have a heartbeat much longer. "As his vampirism returns, he'll have a much better understanding of his powers," Werksman says. "Where he once looked at it as a curse, by the end of the season, Mick will realize that being undead is something he can live with."

Episodes left : 4

Photo caption : Mick is alive and kicking - for a while

I have been saying that the temporary "cure" for his Vampirism should give Mick a new understanding and appreciation for his Vampire skills/powers. Glad to read that seems to be the way our writers feel too. :)
