I started this comm because the episode discussion threads over at moonlight_tv always seem to be full of gushing praise. I don't want to harsh anyone's squee, but that's just not how I see the show.

No bashing or flaming, please - we're here to have fun. Please put spoilers, images, etc. behind an lj-cut.

Welcome to moonlight_snark!

Hi there!
I agree, Moonlight is a very enjoyable show, but seriously, what's with the sunbathing vampires? LOL

Seriously! I mean, I think it's partly because they're going old-school with their mythology (and partly because it's just easier to shoot a TV show during the day) but there are points when it just becomes absurd. Like at the end of 12:04 AM when the sun comes up and Mick says, "And that's why it can't work with us!" I was like... because your eyes are sensitive to light? Putting a hand up to keep the sun out of your eyes just doesn't have the same dramatic effect as taking cover to avoid being burned.

Also, if they're supposed to be sensitive to daylight, then what's with the floor-to-ceiling windows in Josef's office and elsewhere?

Yes, vampires seem to be big fans of those floor-to-ceiling windows. Josef has them in his office and his home, Mick has them in his office. And wow, look at Coraline's "party house". That's some glass there ...

"And that's why it can't work with us!" I was like... because your eyes are sensitive to light? Exactly! What, Mick, you don't like the dawn? Not a romantic person, hmm?
I thought it was pretty ridiculous that Mick is trying to shield himself from the direct sun-light when sleuthing around with Beth, but is fine marching through the desert (in "Fever") all day long. What, not even a sunburn, Mick? Which had me thinking, why hasn't Josef set some scientists to developing a UV-sunscreen yet? That would solve a lot of problems, and with him being so paranoid about being discovered and all.

Also: Why does Mick use a needle (and a big one at that, too) to inject himself with blood, when he could just drink it, as we have seen him doing numerous times? Hm?
Aww, come on Mick, you just want to impress the ladies, admit it.
