24. Blade: The Series

The Blade movies may have been extremely popular, but Blade: The Series had the misfortune of existing at a time when superheroes weren't having much luck on TV (unless you started off as a teen drama during the teen drama boom of the early 2000s. Looking at you, Smallville!). The mid-2000s weren't particularly kind to the genre on the small screen, so this one ended up going the way of Birds of Prey and Painkiller Jane in that it lasted just one season.

The show also had the misfortune of carrying on the story of the film saga without its cast. Kirk Jones took over from Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire hunter and he did a solid job with a very difficult task. Not only was he believable as the character, he was badass. I remember seeing those first teasers, and wanting to see more!

The show itself was a bit of a mixed bag. From a narrative standpoint, it didn't really come close to the movies, but it did have some great action sequences that are still fun to watch today.

Honestly, I think Blade just needed some time to find its footing. It's unfortunate that the network didn't give it another season.
