Lasting just one season, sci-fi fans may have only been able to savor a taste of Moonlight, but the People’s Choice Award-winning show’s love story between a vampire and the investigative reporter who steals his stilled heart away is in the viewers’ blood forever.
During its 16 episode run on CBS, the tale unfolds of Mick St. John– a 90-year-old immortal who keeps the streets of L.A safe through his position as a private investigator as he keeps a close eye on inquisitive internet reporter Beth Turner, whose childhood memories of the mysterious man who once saved her from the clutches of a mad woman (Coraline) are veiled by the passage of time.
