Tried to force my way through this show but I had to end my suffering during episode 13. This show is too long and too boring with long stretches of nothing happening while Knight contemplates. The flashbacks are tedious and the story (so far) was monotonous. I watch a lot of Vampire / Werewolf / Witch based shows and the worst by far are the "Vampire who hates being a Vampire" shows. I'm assuming Angel was influenced by this because it's basically the same thing but Angel does this so much better. I hated Angel at first too but I gave Angel 6 episodes before I became interested enough to like it. MAYBE this show begins to become interesting after episode 13 but I'm not going to waste anymore time on it.

Forever Knight was on Tuesday nights at 23:30 or 00:00, depending. It was one of the "Crimetime after Primetime" series before CBS sold out to crybaby david letterman. There is no comparison between the quality of the 2 programs. Forever Knight was a +9 or 10. Whereas if you could stomach letterman the raving egotist, the few shows I saw were mostly -7 or -8. CBS traded down in quality. It's too bad another network didn't pick up Forever Knight and continue it. I miss do-gooders Nikola, Nat, Janine in the Raven, and even Skanky and LeCroix. Characters grew on you. Most stories were quite good. Acting was as fine as or better than any acting anywhere, and made you feel the people were real and actually the folks they depicted. Scene shot composition was usually high quality. Flashbacks of Nick, Janine and LeCroix added a sense of history. Good music added apropos atmosphere.
