Time flies! It seems like just yesterday I was talking to the adorable Alex O'Loughlin about CBS picking up Moonlight—a moment you can see above—and now we've reached the end of the first season, assuming the strike doesn't break, like, tomorrow.
The last ep completed, "The Mortal Cure," airs this Friday on CBS at 9 p.m., and it's the last chance for you would-be fans to get in on the action and (please, oh please) help to send off the series with a nice uptick in the ratings.
So, why should you watch? Well, I have three good reasons...
1. The fans are bat-poop crazy over this show, as evidenced by Moonlight's number two ranking in our TV Throwdown poll, which asked fans to vote for the best series of 2007.
2. Star Alex O'Loughlin is charming and likable and an all-around nice guy. See for yourself in the clip above!
3. This show is strangely addictive—just the sort of series you'll want to catch up on during these here strike-riddled times. You can do so by visiting iTunes or the show's official site at CBS.com to watch full-length episodes of the series.
As for you existing fans, you'll be happy to hear that this Friday's season finale episode will not disappoint. It features Mick and Coraline vamped out and vicious and more tears for poor brokenhearted Beth as she deals with a new crisis, even though she has yet to get over you-know-who's death last week.
Now, if this is the end of the first season, could there be a second season? Many of you have written me at firstname.lastname@example.org about this, concerned that CBS has yet to give the series a commitment. Now, that's true—I checked on this for you, and the official word is still that there's no word.
However, I can tell you I would be astonished if Moonlight didn't get a pickup. It's a relatively inexpensive show, and the ratings are respectable, but more important, it has you guys. Yes, you. Moonlight found an incredibly devoted and vocal fan base right out of the gate, and you can't buy that kind of passion with any amount of treasure.
Now, check out the clip above, then testify to your Mick-Beth devotion below in the Comments—and tell the world what you want to see happen on and for the show!
