Dracula S01 E09: Four Roses

Grayson ep9

Last week’s episode was a real character study on the people surrounding Grayson/Dracula. Best friends are not always best friends, boyfriends can’t be trusted, and you never ever want to piss off Lady Jayne. 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 E04: Darkness to Light

Ninja Jane e4

On last week’s episode, Dracula discovered Lady Jayne’s secret; she captures, tortures and destroys vampires; bad, bad Jayne. Up until this episode, I was a bit upset with the lack of action and bloodletting on the series. I was about to plunge the stake and change channels. I’m a big fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and could not wrap my head around his lackadaisical Dracula. Jonathan’s Henry Tudor from Showtime had more blood thirsty tendencies than this mellow creature of the night. Dracula is known for his blood sucking, killer instincts. He’s supernatural and I expect Dracula to kick butt. Last week, he did, and so did his sidekick Van Helsing. It’s about time! But, my little blood banks, Dracula has his own secrets and we will meet one tonight after the jump.

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

drac1

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.

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.
