Midnight, Texas (S01E10) “The Virgin Sacrifice”

Here we are at the finale. Whether it’s the season finale or the series finale has yet to be determined. I certainly hope it will be renewed. It was a little tepid about the series at first, but it definitely grew on me and the ending set up an interesting storyline for season 2, should…

Midnight, Texans (S01E09) “Riders on the Storm”

Okay, so previously on Midnight, Texas we learned that the demon feeds on death, which sounds about right, dietarily speaking. I mean, it would be hard to be scared of a demon who feeds on Dunkin Donuts and moonlight. Anyway, the Faceless Dude brought the truckload of dead bodies to Midnight, which for the demon…

Midnight, Texas (S01E08) “Last Temptation of Midnight”

So, we see someone standing over a grave in a church cemetery. It’s a demon who kills the priest and steals his face and the church bus. Yes, you read that right, the demon has no face but can steal his victim’s face and basically become that person.  Eek! Manfred is driving the RV as…

Midnight, Texas (S01E07) “Angel Heart”

So, as you can probably tell by the episode title, we’re coming to the angel-y part of the storyline. It’s pretty typical angel stuff, complete with divine prophecy and an epic battle between good and evil. Interestingly though, the battle isn’t that black and white, which is kind of nice. I’m always kind of wary…

Midnight, Texas (S01E06) “Blinded by the Light”

Okay, this episode really knocked it out of the park for me. Partially because, due to the storyline, we really didn’t have the Supernatural Villain of the Week who was conveniently vanquished at the end of the hour. If you’ve been reading my recaps, you’ll know that the way the episodes end all nice and…

Midnight, Texas (S01E05) “Unearthed”

So, we are officially halfway through the first season of Midnight, Texas. Tonight’s episode had two plot lines, each of which answered a question that had been lurking since the first episode. The first question involves Manfred and the mysterious Hightower. For my own amusement, I’ve decided to name the plot line in several different…

Midnight, Texas (S01E04) “Sexy Beast”

So, when the episode begins, some guy is driving a car through what I assume is the Texas desert. He is driving a Cadillac convertible and talking on his cell and is a total douche. He pulls over where a hot blonde sitting on a picnic table (not sure what a picnic table is doing…

Midnight, Texas (S01E03) “Lemuel, Unchained”

This week’s episode focuses mostly on Lem’s backstory, of which there is quite a bit, not surprising for a vampire. We learn how and when he became a vampire, not to mention how he became a vampire who feeds on energy instead of blood. That part comes with a surprising revelation. I kind of like…

Midnight, Texas (S01E02) “Bad Moon Rising”

The episode opens with Manfred and Creek running from…something. We don’t see what it is, but we hear it and see that it has slashed Manfred’s side with a serious set of claws. Claws strong enough to also slash the roof of Manfred’s RV. We don’t see what kind of creature it is, but since…

Midnight, Texas (S01E01) “Pilot”

This past Monday marked the debut of the new paranormal mystery series ‘Midnight, Texas.’ ‘Midnight, Texas’ is based on a series of books by Charmaine Harris, of ‘True Blood’ fame. Of course, ‘True Blood’ was shown in HBO, while ‘Midnight, Texas’ is on NBC. It should be interesting to see how different it is, being…
