Hi Books Lovers,
Christmas is now very close. Have you already started decorating your house? But of course decorations are not enough when you got nothing to watch on TV, worm under a blanket of pile, wearing Christmas socks. So obviously I got the perfect show for you even for this cold December.
The show is Midnight, Texas. Story based on Charlaine Harris’s books, author of True Blood. A fantasy show that will keep you company in the evening. Midnight, Texas is made up of two seasons, the second airing week after week.
On the run from his past, young psychic Manfred Bernardo is told by the ghost of his grandmother to seek out refuge in Midnight, Texas. There, he will find a community that can help him. Full of diverse characters—including a vampire, a witch, a fallen angel, a half-demon and a werecreature—Midnight faces numerous threats from the outside world as it welcomes the newcomer.
- François Arnaud as Manfred Bernardo, a psychic who moves to Midnight trying to outrun trouble that is following him.
- Arielle Kebbel as Olivia Charity, a freelance assassin with as many secrets as guns she owns, and wife of Lemuel.
- Peter Mensah as Lemuel “Lem” Bridger, a vampire with a dark past who first came to Midnight in the 1950s and never left, and Olivia’s husband.
- Dylan Bruce as Bobo Winthrop, the human proprietor of Midnight Pawn, landlord to Lemuel, Olivia, and Manfred. Also, the best friend of Fiji, later her boyfriend.
- Parisa Fitz-Henley as Fiji Cavanaugh, a quirky free-spirited witch who owns Midnight’s magic shop and struggles to come to terms with how powerful she really is.
- Jason Lewis as Joe Strong, a fallen angel who has prophesied darkness heading towards Midnight and husband of Chuy, who admonishes him for revealing his angelhood to others.
- Sarah Ramos as Creek Lovell (season 1; special guest, season 2), the mortal “girl next door beauty” waitress and gas-station attendant who becomes the love interest of Manfred, much to her father’s distaste.Eventually, she reaches her limit with Midnight, and leaves town in “Head Games”.
- Yul Vazquez as Reverend Emilio Sheehan (season 1; special guest, season 2), a quiet weretiger who presides over the Wedding Chapel and Pet Cemetery and their Midnighter patrons. He leaves Midnight in “To Witch Hell and Back” after Kai removes his weretiger curse.
The first episodes may look weird to you, even boring, but I assure you that soon you’ll get the rhythm of this show and you’ll soon will fall in love, because this show is not only fantasy, but it’s also about love and there are a few couples you won’t live without.
