Poll Results: Chthon Recruiters Would be Pleased

The latest poll results are in and the results are just what you'd expect.

Which vampire house would you want to be in?
House of Chthon: 61% (30)
House of Leichen: 22% (11)
House of Armaya: 8% (4)
House of Erebus: 8% (4)
Total Votes : 49

With the House of Chthon being the main focus of the show, I don't think it comes as much of a surprise that most voters chose to join Marcus, Chase, and Krista. I, personally, voted for Leichen House because their mystery and interesting supernatural aspects intrigue me. The fact that they don't feed on humans is a big perk too!

Thanks again to courtney for the poll suggestion and to all who voted!

New Poll: Which vampire house would you want to be in?

Last week I asked for some poll suggestions and Courtney submitted the question I'll be using this week "Which vampire house would you want to be in?"

I'm giving four options for this poll, Chthon, Leichen, Armaya, and Erebus. There are a few other houses mentioned in the Blade universe, but these are the four that made an appearance in the television series.

The House of Chthon was the featured vampire house, with , Krista, Macus Van Sciver, Chase, Charlotte, Thorne, and Fritz all being members. The House of Chthon is often referred to as being one of the most powerful (if not the most powerful) vampire house.

The House of Leichen played a role early on in the series, but was soon forgotten. Frederick, Chase's ex husband (who's also the vampire that turned her), belongs to the House of Leichen. The house is very mysterious with the blood ritual that allows vampires to look into the minds of connected vampires. It's also known that Leichen vampires don't feed on humans, but rather cloned blood.

The House of Armaya played a fairly large role - mostly due to it's pureblood leader Damek. Marcus' plans were constantly threatened by Damek. We also learned that it was Damek that murdered Marcus' wife and turned him. Damek was the main motivation behind all of Marcus' plans. From what is known, Damek was the last pureblood Armayan vampire, so with his death, they were likely to be left leaderless.

The House of Erebus was the main vampire house for the first Blade movie. In the television show, the pureblood Alex was our own real connection to Erebus. There seemed to be some incredibly bad blood between the House of Erebus and the House of Chthon, though it was never fully disclosed as to why.

So there are you're choices. Do you go with the powerful Chthon, the mysterious Leichen, the outcast Armayans, or the once proud Erebus?

Thanks again to Courtney for the poll suggestion.

New Poll: What Poll Would You Like To See?

Alright ladies and gentlemen, this week instead of me coming up with a poll and having you all vote on it, I'd like to hear everyone's suggestions on what I should do for the next poll. They should be at least somewhat related to this site and/or the show. They can be specific like asking about a particular scene in a certain episode, or they can be general like do you like the color pink.

Even with all the polls I've put up, I'm sure there's some important question that you all would like to see polled, so here's your chance to suggest one. Put your suggestions in the comments below or use the contact form and I'll put them in the comments. Tuesday next week I'll pick the best one and put it up Thursday. If there's more than one great poll idea, I'll work the remaining in for subsequent weeks.

Poll Results: Who Wants to be a Vampire?

54 people voted in the latest poll, here's how it turned out:

Would You Want to be a Vampire?
Yes: 70% (38)
No: 30% (16)
Total Votes : 54

It's not surprising that most people said they would want to be a vampire, though it's actually kind of surprising to see that 30% said no. I figured it'd be much more of a landslide considering this is a vampire television show fansite.

I, personally voted yes. If you take out the whole being evil and having to kill people and just make it a decision weighing living longer and being nearly invincible against never seeing daylight again and really only being able to eat/drink one thing - I'd take the longer life every time. Sure I'd miss the Sun, but I'd much rather live longer.

Of course, most legends say that you would also have to throw in the whole being an evil murdering monster part, so if that were the case, I'd have to think about it a little more :)


New Poll: Would You Want to be a Vampire?

This week's poll asks you to weigh the consequences of being a vampire against all the benefits. If you were given the choice of being turned and become a vampire for the rest of your life, would you do it?

Obviously there's many different notions of what a vampire would be, but for the sake of this poll, let's use the vampires created in the Blade series. This means that as a vampire you would live much longer, be stronger, and be nearly invulnerable. It also means that you'd never be able to go out into sunlight and would require blood to feed. However, let's also go with Frederick from the show and say that you wouldn't actually be feeding on humans.

So, basically, would you want to live longer given the fact that you'd never see the sun again and wouldn't be able to appreciate your favorite foods and drinks?

Poll Results: Size Doesn't Matter

The latest poll was extended an extra week to give the minor characters a chance to shine. Who comes out on top and who comes up short?

Favorite Minor Character?
Charlotte: 37% (37)
Fritz: 14% (14)
Collins: 12% (12)
Boone: 9% (9)
Steppin' Razor: 7% (7)
Vanessa: 7% (7)
Frederick: 4% (4)
Thorne: 3% (3)
Glynnis: 2% (2)
Cain: 2% (2)
Damek: 2% (2)
Sands: 0% (0)
Reverend Carlyle: 0% (0)

Total Votes : 99

I don't think it's much of a surprise to see Charlotte sitting at the top of the list. Her, Boone, and Collins had the most screen time out of the minor characters by far. It was interesting to see Fritz so high on the list with him being killed off so early in the show. I wonder if we had a few British voters voting with Fritz still fresh in their minds?

I personally voted for Frederick, though it was definitely a tough decision. Just about every character on that list had my vote for at least a few moments. I ended up choosing Frederick mostly because of the possibilities he presented and the past he was a part of. Being a member of a house of vampires that didn't feed on humans, plus his discovery of Krista's secret and his history with Chase all added up to a character that embodied some great potential that could have been capitalized on during a second season.

New Poll: Favorite Minor Character

Ok, so I've asked you your favorite character was, but since the big five seem to dominate that list (Blade, Krista, Marcus, Shen, Chase), I've decided to give the little guys a chance. That's why the new poll asks who your favorite minor character was.

Since this is a big poll, I'm going to let it run an extra week. Hopefully that gives the minor characters a little more time to shine.

Poll Results: Reading Makes My Brain Hurt

So, with the series on a seemingly permanent hiatus, do Blade fans clamor for any and all sources of Blade material? Apparently not.

Do You Read the Blade Comic?
I've never read it: 69% (24)
I checked out a few issues: 17% (6)
I read it religiously: 14% (5)
Total Votes : 35

I don't think it's a big surprise that most haven't picked up an issue of the Blade comic book. If the comic book followed the same characters and storylines as the series, I'm sure it'd be a different story. Like I had said previously, I did check out the first issue but wasn't a fan. Of course, I'm not a big fan on reading really anything so take that with a grain of salt.

A little side note... it's definitely sad seeing the total votes dropping each week. It's just another reminder of how the show and it's characters won't be coming back. I'm definitely appreciating each and every voter that continues to participate to keep this place alive for that much longer As I said at the get go, I'll keep posting as long as people keep coming back for more. I do hope to have another television project up and running within a year (hopefully much sooner than that), so do make sure to check back for an update on that as well.

New Poll: Do You Read the Blade Comic?

Did you know that there's a Blade comic book being run right now? Well, this week's poll asks you if you read it.

I did check out the first issue, but honestly didn't like it much. Now, take that with a grain of salt because I haven't been into comic books for a long time and actually don't really read anything so my opinion on the matter is obviously tainted.

Poll Results: Fantastic Science Fiction

The latest poll results are in and I don't think the winner is much of a surprise...

Favorite TV Show Genre
Sci Fi / Fantasy: 70% (39)
Drama: 12% (7)
Other: 7% (4)
Comedy: 5% (3)
Reality TV: 2% (1)
Sports: 2% (1)
Game Shows: 2% (1)
News: 0% (0)
Cartoon: 0% (0)
Total Votes : 56

With the poll taking place on a fansite dedicated to a SciFi/Fantasy series, obviously the results were going to be skewed. Even so, I wasn't expecting them to be as lobsided as they were.

4 people voted for "Other", so I'm curious to know what genres they watch. Most of the shows I watch fall under the drama genre, though my favorites would mostly fall under SciFi/Fantasy.

Thanks to everybody that voted.
