    Anyone else watch it last night?

    I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a horrible show and got soemthing pretty well done. The show was well cast, well written with a good starting point for the story. They tied it to the movies quite nicely without relying to heavily on their events. Honestly, I enjoyed it alot more than Blade Trinity.

    I did not like Blade Trinity at all. The 2 hour premiere was miles better in terms of story and script. Kirk Jones (aka Sticky Fingaz) will make an excellent Blade. He tried a little too hard to channel Snipes' Blade, but I'm sure he will grow into the role nicely.

    You know who I always thought would be a good Blade? Avery Brooks.

    The girl Krista or whatever looked hot as hell in that white dress. Hopefully they keep putting her in outfits like that.

    Really? Blade2 = Love.

    And for anyone who wants to see it, the 2 hour premiere is on iTunes for free right now. But only for this week.

    I recorded it last night, I will have to watch it today.

    But personally I didn't mind Blade Trinity all that much...Of course I went into that movie with low expectations. I have to agree that Ryan Reynolds is hilarious. But I will also say that it was the worst Blade movie.

    I have to agree, much better than blade trinity. I found it funny how the UFC was saying to look for Chuck during the premiere. He was in it for a total of 2 or 3 minutes and just got his ass kicked the entire time.

    Saw part of it and liked what I saw. I will have to watch more before I pass my final judgement.

    Ah crap I missed it. Im really bad with catching tv shows anymore.
    Wanted to see it though since I LOVED Blade & Blade 2. Watched the dvds a thousand times
    Trinity was a little embarrasing, watched it twice.

    If the series turns out to be good then may just wait and pick up another fine dvd set.
