Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Geraint Wyn Davies stars as Toronto homicide detective Nick Knight in the cult favorite Forever Knight, a horror-cum-detective show produced in Canada between 1992 and ’96. Knight’s a brilliant cop who's a bit long in the tooth: He's actually Nicolas de Brabant, a 764-year-old vampire on a quest to restore his mortality. After centuries of taking lives, de Brabant is tortured by his conscience and tries to redeem himself by using his powers keen hearing and sight, bulletproof flesh for the police force. He's aided by his partner, Detective Donald Schanke John Kapelos, a wisecracking, streetwise cop, and by his love interest, county coroner Dr. Natalie Lambert Catherine Disher, one of the few humans aware of Det. Knight’s vampire status. Knight also has to contend with his past, notably his "father," the vampire Lucien LaCroix Nigel Bennett. Almost gleefully evil, LaCroix runs a nightclub and has a radio show, which he often uses to tempt Nick into killing humans again. Season 2 opens with "Killer Instinct," wherein LaCroix sets Nick up for a number of murders that threaten to expose his identity. Other notable episodes this season include: "Stranger than Fiction," wherein a novelist who knows the vampire community too well is drawn to Nick; the heart-wrenching "Undue Process," which features the death of Natalie's young niece and the hunt for the killer; "Partners of the Month," wherein Schanke leaves his wife and moves in with Knight; and "Close Call," a pivotal outing that finds Knight saving Schanke's life and also revealing to him his dark secret. This Season 2 set boasts some wonderful bonus features, such as commentaries on "Killer Instinct" and "Crazy Love" with Davies and creator Jim Parriott; commentary on "A More Permanent Hell" and "Curiouser & Curiouser" with Bennett; a 20-minute featurette; and a short, taped question-and-answer session with fans and the show's stars.

    It just keeps getting better & better

    After having seen this show backwards, (I saw the end of season 3 while the show was still on the air), and having bought and watched all of season 1, season 2 makes it all make sense. Of course, outside of this fact, of watching the show backwards, season 2 is an even stronger season than season 1 was in comparision. I still think that season 1 was a good season, but season 2 is more interesting. I look forward to seeing all of season 3 (finally!!) after watching all of season 2 on DVD.

    A Darker Season

    While season 1 delt with more with Nick's human side, Season 2 focuses more on his vampiric side. The immediate feeling is: "something'sa different" (and it's not that Capt Stonetree is missing). Season 2 continues the detailed plots, the deep story lines, and the well-developed inter-relationships between the characters that we all loved in Season 1 and veers off to let us all see more of the vanpire's world. A must have collection.

    The Best Knight

    Season Two is probably the best, or maybe the strongest, FOREVER KNIGHT. It was a full season with 26 episodes, including “Stranger Than Fiction”, a little nod to Ann Rice. Nick Knight, a Toronto cop, was born Nicolas de Brabant in medieval France, but he brought over in 1228, that is, he is made into a Vampire. Nick’s quest to become human is still explored, but the other characters have a lot to say in this second season. La Croix, Nick’s sire and nemesis, is given a more humane face, as we see how he became a vampire. Janette’s past is looked at. Schanke’s dilemma of being Nick’s all-too-human partner is given voice. Natalie’s love and her own demons about life are also seen. There are four commentaries and some extra features, which make this dvd a step above the first season release. Still I’m greedy; this is the 42-minute American episodes and I long for the Canadian 48 minutes. Sometimes the hunger never stops. -- Leslie Strang Akers
