Forever Knight is a Canadian-American television series that aired on CBS from 1992 to 1996. The show follows the life of Nick Knight, an 800-year-old vampire who is working as a homicide detective in modern-day Toronto. Throughout the series, Nick struggles to come to terms with his vampirism and to find a way to become mortal again.

The lead character of Nick Knight is played by Geraint Wyn Davies, who delivers a strong performance as the brooding, tormented vampire. His character is complex and multidimensional, as he grapples with the morality of his actions and the consequences of his immortality. Nick is haunted by his past, including centuries-old relationships and conflicts, and he is often plagued by guilt over his vampiric nature.

The show's premise of a vampire working as a detective is an interesting twist, as it allows for a unique blend of horror and crime drama. The episodes often revolve around murders and investigations, with Nick using his vampiric abilities to help solve cases. However, the show also explores the supernatural world that Nick is a part of, as he interacts with other vampires and creatures of the night.

One of the strengths of the show is its supporting cast, including Nigel Bennett as the vampire Lucien LaCroix, Nick's maker and mentor. Bennett's performance is excellent, as he embodies the arrogance and manipulativeness of a powerful vampire. Catherine Disher plays Nick's partner on the police force, and her character brings a level of skepticism and groundedness to the show. Other notable guest stars throughout the series include Sarah Polley, David Warner, and Michael Ironside.

The show's production values are strong, with the gothic aesthetic of Nick's vampire world contrasting nicely with the modern-day setting of Toronto. The cinematography is stylish and visually pleasing, with a lot of use of shadows and atmospheric lighting. The music is also a standout aspect of the show, with a haunting and moody score that perfectly complements the dark themes of the series.

Overall, Forever Knight is an engaging and entertaining show that explores the complexities of the vampire genre. It combines elements of horror, drama, and crime procedural to create a unique and compelling story. Geraint Wyn Davies delivers a standout performance as the tortured protagonist, and the supporting cast and production value are also top-notch. While the show may not have had a long run, it still has a devoted fanbase who have kept the show alive through fanfiction and conventions.

Forever Knight is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (70 episodes). The series first aired on May 5, 1992.
