DRACULA: What You Need to Know About the New NBC Series

October 25, 2013 by  

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, DRACULA…

*Maybe not scientifically correct. But close enough.

NBC’s description: “New to England, Alex Grayson hosts a lavish party. He becomes fixated on Mina, a beautiful young woman who looks like his dead former love. Newly engaged to Mina, Harker grapples with worries over providing Mina the life she deserves.”

My take: I’ve watched the first few episodes, and there is no denying the show is gorgeous. But for lack of a better word, it lacks bite. It feels more destined to be at best a guilty pleasure versus anything more.

And the links to catch up on:

DRACULA premieres tonight at 10 PM on NBC.

    It’s amazing how much of today’s horror and supernatural novels are derivative by the first Dracula. The Audible audiobook version is definetely the best way to read quickly classics such as this one. If it wasn’t for the awesome narration I wouldn’t have finished it, I think.
