As I finally got around to writing up my thoughts with regards the 2009 season 2, I decided to cover the entire season as an honourable mention. The reasoning goes thus, there are actually three vampire related episodes – a two part season opener, which whilst vampires appear in it the episode didn’t feel that vampire orientated, and a full on vampire episode – as well as an episode that was genre interesting at the very least.
However, beyond this, there is a vampire background to the entire show. Main character Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) was one of five Victorian scientists who injected themselves with a pure sample of vampire blood – vampires once ruled the world and are, in modern times, virtually extinct. All five gained gifts – Helen was blessed with longevity – and one of them, (the) Nikola Tesla (Jonathon Young), became a vampire.

…or so we would think, but don’t underestimate Tesla’s desire to get his vampirism back, as well as other vampires who may well reappear in Season 3…
