Somewhere InBetween is the longest-running original show at MZP, and is the first show on the virtual network to achieve a third season. It's a supernatural drama based around its own brand of the vampire mythology, and charts the trials of Chris Berkeley, a man changed into halfway between a human and a monster following a savage attack, and his sidekick Twist McFadden, a resurrected vampire herself, as they search for the cure for Chris' condition.

So far, the duo have gained more colleagues as they've encountered a 'rebel' vampire underground (one determined to live peacefully alongside humans) that introduced them to Danyael Norton, a vampire DJ and rebel spokesperson, then an old friend of Chris' in the form of Julie Kingston, a former doctor with knowledge of the supernatural. They've also battled foes from Chris' arch-nemesis Malkuth, a half-demonic gangster with a magical connection to Chris, Dr. Angus Parker, a brilliant scientist who has pledged himself to wipe out everything non-human from the face of the Earth, Vivian Taylor, Chris' former partner (and also a vampire), and Jacques Manon, a French occultist turned parasitically-controlled warlock.

Plot

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Chris Berkeley (Trent Reznor).

Chris Berkeley (Trent Reznor).

Christopher Berkeley is half vampire. The good half, with the strength, regenerative powers and speed of mankind's natural predator, with only some of the weaknesses. Chris was turned thirty years ago by ancient and powerful vampire elder Sanctus, able to save his humanity and stop the process by use of his extensive knowledge of healing magics, warding spells and everything he could lay his hands on to help.

Twist McFadden (Katherine Towne).

He is helped on his quest by Twist McFadden, a vampire who fell in with the wrong crowd at a young age, but met her end when she tried to save her baby sister from the rest of her vampire gang. Executed by her former lover, Twist was chained to a hilltop and left to burn in the rays of the morning sun - but things didn't end there, as Twist awoke to find herself in Hell! Twist ended up in a personally-designed chamber that brought her worst fear to life, until she was accidentally summoned back to Earth by Chris after one of his spells misfired. Seeing the cure and the chance to help the helpless alongside Chris as her hope of paying off her karmic debts, so that when she dies again she can stay out of the welcome party waiting down in Hell, she became his sidekick and ally.

Danyael Norton (Ville Valo).

Along the way they picked up two new recruits - vampire DJ and resistance spokesperson Danyael Norton, and doctor turned occult specialist Julie Kingston. Together, the team discovered that there was another route to finding the cure - an ancient healing device, its parts split up and spread across the globe, but if reconstructed could be the answer Chris has been looking for...

A surprise reappearance by Sanctus, bringing with him seasoned warrior Diego, brought the team's attention to a new menace - Jacques Manon, a French warlock who was last seen getting sucked into a distant dimension filled with horrific beasts known as the Skorpione.

Somehow, Manon had managed to claw his way back into our world more powerful than ever, and with an army of Skorpione just waiting for him to unleash them on the world! A new player entered the game as the team encountered Dr. Parker, a brilliant scientist who inherited the network of research labs left vacant by the retired David Osbourne and his team, turning the resources at his disposal to finding new ways to study and then destroy the underworld threat.

Syren (Fiona Apple).

Parker was not what he seemed, however, and with a secret alliance with Chris' first partner, vampire and long-standing nemesis Vivian Taylor led Parker to manipulate the team into doing his dirty work for him. Chris was marooned on a mysterious island where he encountered the enigmatic Syren, a young girl with extraordinary magical powers but no memory of her past. The reunited team escaped from Parker's labs (though with the loss of rogue psychic Lizzie Duncan when she sacrificed herself to break Twist out of a coma Parker had put her into) and raced to stop Manon opening a network of portals across the globe, ready to set his armies of Skorpione loose on the planet...

Manon was defeated, but the fatally wounded Chris gave his life to defeat him, hurling them both through another portal moments before Manon's entire base self-destructed. Six months after, Twist is still leader of the group.
