and I swear, that show is what BTS2 was meant to be/should have been.

I liked the story... but the acting was poor. Agreed though, it felt more BTS than any show I've yet seen

The books are better, but I liked (And now miss) the show too. It does have a vague BTS2 feel to it. I recommend the books if you haven't read them.

*nods* The books are pretty good. I've read the first 3 and am on the waiting list for the 4th (checks again and sighs when she is #10 on the list still)

You suck :s_tongue
I would still recommend the books if you are a fan of modern magical murder mysteries.

I liked it fairly well for a Sci-FI Channel show, but it definitely could have benefited from smoother dialogue and more focus on the characters.

Me? Yes. the books are basically Sam Spud meets Fantasy.
