"Dr. Feelgood" Season 1, Episode 3

Usually the monsters Mick hunts are of the human kind, but tonight he's on the hunt for a rogue vampire. Not only does Mick have to track down one of his own kind - although he's loathe to admit he has anything in common with the feral vamp - he has to contend with questions from Beth about how he got turned. We learned a few more things: " There are a few hundred vampires in Los Angeles. " The vampire's sire is responsible for anyone he or she turns. " Vampires don't eat food because it doesn't taste like anything. " To be turned, the victim has to reach a point near death. Then the sire feeds the victim their blood. " Vampires smell like no others. Mick can always smell his kind. It all starts when Gerald Stosvky - a rocket scientist as well as a vampire - is the victim of a hit-and-run accident. He thinks he killed Jeffrey Pollack, the Good Samaritan who tried to help him, so he calls in "the cleaner." It turns out Gerald actually turned the guy and he's been on the loose ever since. And if you don't socialize a vampire immediately, he/she goes rogue. The blood lust and the killing become like a high, and they can't go back. Mick and Beth track Jeff to his house, where they find his wife murdered. Afraid he'll just continue his murdering spree at the hospital where he works, Beth and Mick decide to go there. But before they can leave, Mick runs into Gerald, who is trying to locate Jeff. Although he told Mick he didn't remember anything about Jeff, he's good with numbers and did remember the license plate. Gerald wants to try to reform Jeff. Apparently he hadn't been able to sire before (some sort of vamp impotence?) and now that he has a companion, a son really, he can't give that up. He stakes Mick through the heart and leaves. When Beth finds Mick staked, she thinks he's dead. He tells her to pull the stake out and once he's mobile again they're off to the hospital. Gerald finally realizes he can't save his "son" but doesn't get away so easily; "the cleaner" will take care of him. Mick and Jeff duke it out until Mick gets the upper hand, paralyzing him, then incinerating him. And, finally, Mick tells Beth the story of how he was turned into a vampire on his wedding night by his bride. He admits to Beth she's the first human he's trusted since he became a vampire. I liked the episode but I have a few questions about some of the characters. Am I the only one who doesn't really like her boyfriend, Josh? He seems nice enough but beyond helping out with Mick's case last week, what is he really adding? I don't think he's an obstacle to Beth and Mick getting together (and if he is, it's not really working), so what else is his purpose? If I'm wrong and you guys like him, please let me know. I'm just not that impressed. Also, I'd like to see more of both Josef and Carl. Thoughts? I guess Kevin Weisman has moved on to greener pastures since Beth seems to have a new cameraman and because of this tidbit from Ausiello. I can't blame him really since I think he too was underutilized. Want more Moonlight? Check out our Online Video Guide. show less
