Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song

The Doctor Who Christmas Special has become tradition on Christmas Day evenings and this year, showrunner Steven Moffat has given us a very special present – the return of a favorite recurring character. Professor River Song, the daughter of companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, and The Doctor’s wife, is back! Meet me after the time and space jump for my thoughts on “The Husbands of River Song.”

Dracula S01 E09: Four Roses

Grayson ep9

Last week’s episode was a real character study on the people surrounding Grayson/Dracula.

While Mina was attacked by henchmen from the Order of the Dragon, Jonathan was fooling around with Lucy. Davenport’s been shot and Browning’s children are missing. The war is on between the merry men of the Order and Grayson/Dracula. When push comes to shove, who will Mina chose? Find out after the jump.

Dracula S01 E08: Come to Die

Dracula - Season 1

Like a page torn from the Star Wars story, our rascally greedy men of the Brotherhood aka Order of the Dragon have used their power, shady dealings and money to attack Grayson’s fledgling Energy Company. How did this happen? Was Dracula too busy wooing Mina? Was Van Helsing too preoccupied with revenge to notice? And what will the merry men of the Order do now that they have that portrait? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Dracula S01 E07: Servant to Two Masters

Mina Dracula, Two Masters

In our last episode, Dracula/Grayson, with the help of Van Helsing’s experiments, spoiled the Order of the Dragon’s plans to get rid of him, but Dracula might want to invest in sunscreen. Mina, did the nasty with Harker, and snubbed her BFF, Lucy. Not to worry, Lucy has a new friend; Ninja Jayne. Will the merry men of the Brotherhood find a way to rid themselves of Grayson and his eco-friendly, energy saving technology? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Dracula S01 E06: Of Monsters and Men

Dracula - Season 1

Last week’s episode was all about friends and their secrets. Dracula saved Renfield from the clutches of Browning’s torturers and he danced with Mina. But, did that little waltz around the room reveal a secret that can be used against him? Nothing gets past Ninja Jayne. Suspicions are growing; no one ever sees Grayson during the day. Will Van Helsing perfect the serum that will enable our little stud bunny to walk in the sun? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Dracula S01 E05: The Devil’s Waltz

Dracula the waltz with Mina

I’m getting to love this show, but rumor has it that NBC might cancel the series if star Jonathan Rhys Meyers doesn’t clean up his drug problem. Pay attention, Jonathan! Steampunk Granny wants to give you a bit of advice. “Snap out of it and get your damn act together. You’re way too talented to throw your life away.” Okay now that I got that out of my system, let’s review the show. Renfield has been captured by Davenport’s men. Will Dracula be able to save his right hand man? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Dracula S01 E03: Goblin Merchant Men

Dracula - Season 1

Hello my little vamps! I hope you had a chance to read Biff Bam Pop’s very own Glenn Walker‘s take on “Dracula,” if not, please do. Well… last week’s episode was somewhat interesting. Mina dumped Harker, the Victorian male chauvinist. Dracula eliminated his enemies, but not fast enough to keep me interested. Ninja Lady Jayne has seers with a magic mirror. I really want this show to succeed, especially since it follows “Grimm,” but so far… I’ve been a bit disappointed in the weak scripts. I’m hoping this show finds its mojo and kicks up the level of horror. This is a vampire story after all, right? Will Dracula kick butt tonight? Find out after the jump Read the rest of this entry

My Take on NBC’s Dracula


Created by journalist and comic book writer Cole Haddon in his first TV endeavor, and run by the genius behind “Carnivale” Daniel Knauf, NBC’s “Dracula” was one of the shows of the new season I was looking forward to. A steampunk version of Dracula on the small screen sounds so intriguing, let’s see how it actually holds up.

31 Days of Horror 2013: Dracula S01 E01: The Blood Is the Life


Welcome my little blood banks. Are you ready for a good vampire show that doesn’t have synthetic blood or vampires who sparkle? Dracula, which is produced by Carnival Films, created by Cole Haddon, and has Daniel Knauf as showrunner, stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula/Vlad Tepes/ Alexander Grayson. How well does Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who played Henry VIII so stunningly in the The Tudors, portray Dracula? Find out after the jump.
