9. Blade: The Series

The Blade movies were quite revolutionary for their time, coming along during an era when there just weren't many superhero movies and proving that the genre could produce new types of hits. Perhaps it was the horror of them or just the damn good entertainment they provided, but Wesley Snipes' vampire/vampire hunter was a hit with audiences. The TV spinoff that came after the three movies? Not so much.

These days, very few people probably even know that the series exists. Unless you saw one of the trailers for it back in 2006, you might not have even known it aired, as it had a pretty short run on Spike TV, airing between June and September. The short run, however, wasn't exactly sweet.

The biggest issue with the series is the absence of Snipes in the main role. While Kirk "Sticky" Jones did a great job with what he was given, fans just weren't able to overlook the fact that we essentially had a 13-part sequel without the original actor. Yes, Blade: The Series does share continuity with the movies, taking place after Blade: Trinity, but to do so without the films' lead rubbed a lot of fans up the wrong way.

Honestly, Blade: The Series was fine for what it was. It wasn't remarkable television nor did it reach the heights of the first two movies in the franchise, but it's certainly watchable. Honestly, it's a bit overhated.
