* NeverFoundTheBody: Coraline. Ironically, one of the main ways to kill a vampire in this series is by fire which reduces them to dust. Mick last saw her in a building which was turned in a small inferno. As such, he felt pretty justified in thinking she was dead since she'd been staked right before then.

* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Vampire Wife]]: Mick hates Coraline for turning him/
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Mick has this attitude towards his vampirism.

to:

* [[IHateYouVampireDad I Hate You Vampire Wife]]: Mick hates Coraline for turning him/
him. Partly because [[spoiler: She apparently did it without giving him any r3eal choice in the matter]] and as such he never had a chance to say yes or no to the idea. We have no idea if he might have accepted the change if she'd been upfront about it with him.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Mick has this attitude towards his vampirism. Though it seems to stem from the fact that he was never given an actual choice about becoming a vampire to begin with, and this has left him bitter about what he now is, despite being more than willing to use the powers he has to get the jobs he takes done.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: When Josh gets shot in episode 11, Mick and Beth attempt to resuscitate him with CPR as a last resort. CleanPrettyReliable is averted, and Josh dies anyway - as most people do when administered CPR in real life.

The show revolves around Mick St. John, a 85 years old private investigator (though thanks to vampirism, he looks pretty good for his age). Despite being turned well over 50 years ago, Mick still has some angst about being a vampire, and refuses to kill for food. He has no qualms killing bad guys or other vampires, though. He also has some surprising hang-ups regarding a [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer pretty young blonde...]]

Not to be confused with ''MoonlightLady''. Or ''Series/{{Moonlighting}}''.
