Q
Why does Mick sleep in a freezer?
A
In the Moonlight universe, vampires are dead. Sleeping in freezers keeps their bodies from decomposing, so they won't smell bad. Also, whenever Mick is injured, he needs human blood to heal, so it may be that slowing his decomposition by sleeping in a freezer also lessens his craving and need for blood.

Q
Why is Mick walking around in the sunlight when sensitivity to the sun is one of the major aspects of vampire lore?
A
Each fictional vampire universe has its own rules about vampires and sunlight. In the Moonlight universe, Mick St John is a vampire who is able to tolerate sunlight for short periods of time but may be harmed if exposed to strong sunlight for lengthy periods, as in episode 1.4 Fever, in which Mick is forced to make his way through the burning desert sun. Packing his body in ice will slow the decomposition, but it requires blood for total healing.Burning up in the sun is actually a relatively new characteristic in fictional vampire lore. It was first seen in the 1922 movie Nosferatu, when Count Orlok disintegrated in the rising sun. In Bram Stoker's novel Dracula (1897), however, the count was seen walking around London on a sunny afternoon wearing a straw hat to shield his face from the direct sun. In Sheridan Le Fanu's short story Carmilla (1872), the vampire was only slightly enervated in the sunlight and used a parasol to shade her delicate skin.In traditional vampire legend and mythology, vampires could be out and about at any time of day. In many places, in fact, vampires were thought to be normal people during the day who simply happened to engage in vampiric behaviors at night, sometimes because they were witches or heretics and sometimes because they were individuals who had returned from the dead and reassumed the lifestyle of the living.So, the writers of Moonlight have obviously decided to revert to vampire lore that was existent prior to Nosferatu.
