"I totally looked forward to Wednesday nights on SpikeTV for Blade: The Series! It was a fun show which kept true to the Blade movies and even added some fun along the way. With the budget that Spike had to make this series it did a fantastic job! It left me wanting more after every episode! I couldn't believe that it had to be cancelled because it got too expensive for Spike to produce. I wish it got picked up by someone else. The acting was more than adequate, and the special effects and fight scenes were great! I was waiting for the Season release on DVD, and now that it is around the corner I will be purchasing it the day it comes out! All the nay-sayers of this series need to remember that it was a TV show and not a big budget movie. Spike and the directors and writers did a great job with this. It's pretty obvious that it had an audience if it is being released on DVD! BUY IT and enjoy some comic book fun!!"
Hey- it was fun stuff!

"Look- Blade the Series was great guilty pleasure fare. Comparisons between a film with $90,000,000 budget to create 90 minutes of air time and a TV show that spent less for an entire series is a bit foolish. It was fun and now its gone and thats a shame."
Great -Better Than you think!!

"I first I thought that a TV series would not be able to do the comic justice. But Spike did a great job at staying true to the feeling of Blade. The ruthlessness of the villans was there and the fighting action just kept getting better and better with every episode. I would highly recommed the entier series to anyone who liked the Blade movies (at least the first two!) Get it! I hope another network picks up the series.
I run a site SaveThatShow.com. Vote, comment and write a letter and tell you friends to buy the dvd this may help!"
Any Fan Of The Movies Will Love This Series!!! Must See!!!

"I admit, I was one of the many who were SUPER skeptical about Blade getting his own show. I generally hate movie to TV adaptations & this show didn't look to be any different. It was with great reluctancy then that when given a copy of this box set that I actually checked it out. The 1st couple episodes (AKA "The House Of Chthon" straight to video release)were pretty corny & the acting from pretty much the entire cast of likables was pretty horrendous. You know what though, I realised that not only did I not hate it, but I was actually really intrigued to check out the next episode. Sure enough, with every episode everything got better. I even accepted "Sticky Fingaz" (remember him from the old 90's rap group Onyx? "SLAM! Duh! Da! Da!" :P) as a pretty good replacement for ol' Dr. Greenthumb Snipes. You actually get alot more out of this than you would expect from a regular TV show. In fact anything that you would find in a rated R movie, from cussing, f-bombs, nudity, blood, guts & gore, you'll find here too. Not that any of that stuff is necassarily important (okay well the blood & gore kinda is with it being a vampire show & all), but it does go along way in making you feel right at home with the 3 other movies. I'm not gonna lie & say that the effects and all are movie quality, but much better than most TV shows. I have to say I think I actually like the series better than I liked the 3rd movie. This is just one of those shows that completely sucks you in the more you watch of it. I guarantee that if you watch just a couple episodes you'll be completely sucked in. I really hope if enough people buy this set that maybe the show'll get picked up by another studio where it can get the recognition that it deserves cause this really is a great series worth watching. This show would fit in perfectly on HBO or Showtime. Not to mention the cliff hanger it ended with, all I gotta say is "Newline, you better at least give us another movie to finish the story". Bottom line is that this is a show that I didn't expect, nor did I want to like but wound up being one of the better shows I've watched in a while. I strongly recommend everyone that's ever even remotely been interested in Blade, vampires, or Sci-Fi even to check this series out, it's a buried treasure that deserves to be found."
