I've been watching season 2 on Hulu.com & am enjoying it quite a bit. Geraint Wyn-Davies is lovely. I also really like Janette & LaCroix. Very interesting dynamic among those three. I wish they had season 1 on hulu, but I guess I must netflix it. I'd love to know how/why LaCroix has that radio show, how/why all three ended up in Toronto... and of course, I want all the centuries' background on them.
Joost.com has 9 episodes from season 1 , including the first part of the premiere episode, but they aren't sequential. A few season 3 episodes are also available. I personally adore season 1.
If you like the Nick/Janette/LaCroix dynamic I highly recommend this vid called "Not an Addict" over at YouTube. I was so happy when I stumbled upon it. It's got everything I could want in an FK vid. Although I should warn you that even though it's mostly season 2 stuff there are a few spoilery bits from season 3 including some backstory on LaCroix and his biological daughter and vampire master Divia.
The show never got into why LaCroix chose to do the radio show but a season 1 episode with flashbacks to Nick and Natalie's first meeting gives a little backstory about Nick arriving in Toronto, as does the series opener. A line in the season 3 opener mentions how long Janette had been in Toronto

It's called "Forever Janette" and can be found here.
It takes place just prior to season 3 so Schanke is present and accounted for as is obviously Janette. Of the season 3 casts Urs has made an appearance.
No LaCroix...yet but Nick, Natalie and the Caddy have.
It's been a fun read and the character likeness is really good.

I am sooo glad this show has been revived in reruns on Chiller.
I stayed up late watching FK on ChillerTV on Wednesday night, it was so good to watch this show again. GWD was so young and sexy. Yum. ChillerTV also is showing my other favorite vamp show, the late, lamented Moonlight with Alex O. sigh
During voice-overs by GWD during the FK marathon, he mentioned that in Season 1, they made 3 different versions, one for America, one Canada and another for European viewers. The ones made for Europe contained lots of nudity. I looked and looked but could not find any sites that sold the European versions, I would love to know if GWD appeared in any of the nude scenes!

For the uninitiated, Forever Knight first showed up as a movie called Nick Knight starring Rick Springfield. I saw it once on Lifetime and it follows most of the story line of the pilot episode (except the coroner was a guy).
CBS produced it with a series of other low-cost Canadian crime dramas to air at 11:30pm as "Crime Time after Prime Time." FK premiered on May 12, 1992 but was not renewed after Dave Letterman was given an 11:30pm show in the fall of 1993. It came back in the fall of 1995 and ran for two additional seasons in syndication, with the final season co-aired on USA and Scifi.

Indeed he was. He doesn't look too bad now; I think the last time I saw him was on 24 a couple of years ago.
GWD was so young and sexy
I used to soooo want Nick and Natalie together, but now upon rewatching, I don't think Nick was ever in to her as she was in to him. (Of course, Chiller keeps reshowing the same 15 or so episodes; I couild be missing the nuances in their relationship.) And someone help me recall--in the finale; didn't Natalie kill herself? I just recall that episode being very over-the-top and WTF!?, yet very sad at the same time.

That episode was pretty over the top. If Lacroix actually killed Nick, 3 major characters died in one epsisode. However, Nick tried to turn Natalie and he drank too much of her blood. Natalie was talking about suicide before that, though.

I wish Chiller would put the show on late night at a set hour, instead of these random-order eight hour marathons. I think the nextone is mid-December.

Someone correct me if I am wrong. I will try and find the last show on line and see if I remember correctly.
And I'm pretty sure we don't need any spoiler tags since this is an old show.

But the fighting and tension continued, USA wasn't happy with ratings and there were other money issues involved. They just barely got funding to finish the last 4-6 episodes instead of getting cancelled outright, and by that point the producers were just so sick of it all that they decided to go for a Blake's 7/Rock Falls-Everyone Dies kind of ending to the show.

I watched my DVD of the finale. It started off with Natalie's psychiatrist friend slitting her wrists in the bathtub. Nick's shoddy hypno powers sort of got Tracy killed and Lacroix was telling him to move on. Natalie caught him packing up and basically wanted him to either bring her across or try what Jeanette did, something involving lovemaking and judicious blood drinking. Nick apparently couldn't control himself. He then asked Lacroix to help him join Natalie wherever she was going after death.
Season 3 of Forever Knight was aired both in syndication and on USA. First, they aired it Mondays at 10pm, getting the first crack at it. My local station got it the following Sunday. After a number of weeks, USA dumped it on the Scifi channel which eventually aired it after the syndicated episode. I think it was late on a Sunday night when I realized "Last Knight" was the title of a finale.
The death toll was pretty high. Besides getting a new partner and a third captain, they brought on 3 more vampires. Vachon was in the first episode, followed by Screed and Urs. Screed died about halfway through the season. Jeanette came back a few episodes later to be killed. Urs and Vachon were killed by Divia in the same episode. Then there was the finale. By the end, only Lacroix was left along with the captain.

Forever Knight was always a dark, moody, sexy and sometimes depressing show. I never really expected Nick and Natalie to have a life together, it just didn't seem to be in cards. And if the show had to end, it ended with both of them dying together, maybe the only way they could really be together, with LaCroix the only one left. All alone, what a hell of a life he has ahead of him. But if anyone could survive and thrive, it would be LaCroix.

Oops. I see that I was answering the poster on the bottom of page nine instead of the bottom of page 10.
