Blade: the series - cancelled

Not to overshadow the great news of Robert Downey Jr being cast in the role of Tony Stark (Iron Man) but it looks like Spike TV has decided to not pick up Blade the series for a second season. I've only watched maybe 4 episodes of the show so far, but I have all the rest of them sitting on my ipod waiting to be viewed. I know it wasn't as strong as the films, but it seemed like it might go somewhere interesting. Blade was always a cool character, maybe cooler in small doses, or as a guest star in a Spider-Man comic... but still its a shame they're ending the series before it really has a chance to find an audience. I definitely could've seen Blade the Series evolving into a slightly silly but still fun escape show, like a little bit more than Xena or Mortal Kombat: Conquest, but not quite a "serious" show. Maybe more like a Witchblade or the ill fated Birds of Prey. Anyhow, that's the news for now. The word isn't official yet, but it looks like they'll finish up the first season at least. Read all about it on Superhero Hype! Later kids.
