Midnight Texas video season 1 episode 3 lemuel unchained

Midnight, Texas Townies Give Manfred a Chilling Vampire Education — Watch

There’s a reason Midnight, Texas‘ Lemuel seems like someone you wouldn’t want to cross: Even other vampires are afraid of him. 

The reasons behind Lem’s legendary stature among his fellow bloodsuckers is explained in this exclusive clip from this Monday’s episode (NBC, 10/9c). During the hour, a group of his old friends arriving in town, eager to get the vamp band back together. This is weird on its own — “Vampires avoid Midnight,” the Rev. informs us — but given all the bad juju that’s been going around, Manfred is pretty sure that Lem’s undead pals want more than just to reminisce over a few pints of O-neg. And as you’ll see in the sneak peek, some of the town’s other residents share his suspicions.

“Things are gettin’ real weird here,” Bobo notes, bringing up the whole Aubrey debacle before Fiji brings up the Rev’s escape and the demons under Manfred’s house. “And now vampires. Delightful,” Manfred deadpans.

Before the episode is over, per the synopsis, Bobo and Fiji will come up with their own plan for handling the fanged ones; Manfred and Olivia will do some digging; and Joe will confess something of vital importance to the Rev.

  1. Two episodes in, the potential for a great show is there, but the tone is completely and totally off. It’s very network-y, very light. The directing style, the camera angles, the set lightning, etc — all those technical elements — are entirely off for a show of this nature.

    For instance, when the angel unveils the painting in the second episode, that reveal was handled very nonchalantly, there was no build up, no proper camera set up. It wasn’t until after that the camera moves across the painting to build it up, but by then it was meh.

    There’s a general lack of commitment to the material.

    When Grimm’s season finally was over the first thing that came to my mind was “nothing can top that”. But man was I surprised and absolutely blown away. The writers and acting and individuality of each character is just what we the public need. Thank you.

  4. Television says:

    I really love this show. Great acting from everyone. Great stories. Love the talking cat and the Grandma. But everyone is good. Can’t wait to watch more.

      Good characters, good actors, good chemistry. The technical aspects (direction, cinematography, etc.) need help and some of the writing needs a polish, though.

  5. Lisa Sierra says:

    Midnight Texas
    Would be a good show if it wasn’t on network tv
    Because he has no real action the story is boring.
    A town full of supernatural creatures and nothing really happens.

    need more talking cat conversing with ALL residents! Need histories of residents, and how each found out about midnight. Jolly good fun!!
