Stop us if this sounds familiar... He's a vampire, but he's also a private eye!
Mick (Alex O'Loughlin) is a private eye by night, but by day he's usually sleeping in a freezer. After all, Mick is a vampire. When he isn't fighting human criminals and various evil forces, Mick is dealing with his ancient mentor (Jason Dohring), his unpredictable sire (Shannyn Sossamon) and the Internet reporter (Sophia Myles) he may just have a thing for.
What They Got Right:
CBS hasn't sent out screeners, because after the network picked up "Moonlight," it proceeded to get rid of the entire cast with the exception of leading man O'Loughlin (Adios, Rade Serbedzija, Shannon Lucio and Amber Valetta). So we'll just say that what they got right was O'Loughlin and the premise.
What's Oh, So Wrong:
By the time it airs, "Moonlight" will have gone through multiple titles ("Twilight" was ditched just before upfronts), multiple scripts, multiple casts and multiple showrunners (Chip Johannessen replaced David Greenwalt). It's possible that CBS just wanted to get "Moonlight" exactly perfect, but this much upheaval behind-the-scenes is rarely a good sign.
