                that show that was on around 96,didnt know they had one,I was lookin threw some moives and spoted this,I couldnt help myself and had to have a look thinkin it had something to do with the game,I was surprised when I heard the word gangrel and brujah.
  I wouldnt say it was the greatest thing I have seen,but I enjoyed it a good deal.
 but some things bugged me,when did brujah and gangrel have a long hate for eachother?when did brujah wear nice suits and hung around eachother?and vampires could walk in daylight when they just had a little snack?
 oh yeah not to mention all the vampires seemed to have animalism?
 
 anyways I want ta know what ya guys think of the series.

 Well, the fact that it didn't last should give you some idea. happy
 
 It was entertaining, and done in a way that they hoped would appeal to people who weren't already playing Vampire: The Masquerade.  So they made a number of changes to try and increase its interest and appeal.  Think of it as "Vampire Lite."

                K:TE had great promise, good actors, and so much potential.  Unfortunately Aaron Spelling was in charge, so...well, enough said.  tongue

 He was the only person with the ability to get it on TV.  The fact that it didn't do well can't be solely attributed to him.

                Also the guy that played the prince died in a motorcycle accident and that is the main reason why the show didn't last past 5 episodes.

 I think it lasted a few episodes more than that and was cancelled before he died.  Actually, I had no idea that he died but do recall hearing it was cancelled.

                Yeah, he died after the show had already been cancelled by Fox.  Though there was a rumor that the Sci-Fi Channel was considering picking it up, which they may have decided against after he died.

                I read somewhere that  white wolf was going to create or be part of a new tv series based on Vampire the masqurade and be more true to the rpg then To Kindred the Embraced was...Anyone heard anything about that???
 
 Or just some untrue rumors?

                Kindred the Embraced wasn't to bad (I have the boxed set), although I was rather annoyed at the way they gave all the vampires similar powers, and that the Nosferatu didn't really seem ugly enough to get the reactions he did.

                I never said kindred was bad has the boxed version myself I just wondered if it is true the info i heard around this forum that White wolf will be part of series based on Vampire the masqurade and feature the clans more like they are in the rpg???
 
 Or was it just a stupid rumor?

 Since they have offcially completely dropped all Masquerade support, it's most likely a rumor. They might do a Requiem show though.

 I have the boxed set as well...  
 I actually like the series as well. :-)
 All the clans having pretty much the same powers did annoy me a little, and like you said, the Nosferatu are fairly average looking.  I watched the series with some friends a few weeks ago, and we started laughing about what makes a Nosferatu different from a regular vampire - basically if you're bald or shave your head, you're in.  Add slightly larger than usual earlobes and you can be the primogen.  (Then you can live in the Princes basement).  
 Uh, what was I saying?
 Oh yeah, I liked the series!

 From your description, the Nossies sound like trekkies happy

 He does look a bit like Spock.

 Kindred: the Embraced was WRETCHED!!!  I was watching it with a few friends, and about 10 minutes into it we all decided that the only way we could finish it was to bust out the cheap vodka and dorritos.
