    I like shows with a dark side to it - that's what drew me to this show. The line is blurred a bit. Is he a monster or is he doing what he needs to survive? Clearly becoming a vampire was not his choice.

    Re: Dracula - NBC

    Disappointed....immensely. I love period shows and this show fulfilled that for me.

    The crazy part about it is...the show is set to begin airing in the Middle East at the end of this month...why bother getting more audiences invested in a show that ends with so many loose ends when the show is now cancelled?

    Greedy NBC milking it for all its worth. Smdh.

    I can't help but wonder if the problems of the producer/star are a part of why the show was cancelled. I certainly don't see it being about the storyline.

    Nah....JRM is currently appears to be doing fine, getting ready to film a new movie with Jeremy Irons, Vanessa Redgrave and Jessica Chastain, in fact. At the end of the day, this boils down to NBC's lack of foresight, zero promotion of the show, yanking the schedule around, random 4-week hiatuses etc, and utter disregard for the show's demographic in general. It's the same thing Parenthood is going through with them right now...too many scheduling changes. Hell, they even want the cast of that show to take a pay cut and reduce the season to only 12 episodes. Craig T. Nelson is understandably disgusted with them.

    Also, things supposedly came down to renewing either Hannibal, or Dracula. Both shows are International co-productions between NBC / Sky Living UK, and apparently at the end of the day, Hannibal was the cheaper show to produce tax-wise. That, and it is highly-regarded by NBC for it's apparent critical acclaim. So they chose to renew it, instead.

    Oh well....I have never been a big NBC fan, anyway. They can go kick rocks.

    I hear ya there. I'd been boycotting them for years (was still seething over the cancellation of Lipstick Jungle about six years ago) and had only "UNboycotted" them for the sake of Dracula. Now that they've taken that from me, my full boycott of them is back on.

    Good riddance to a rubbish network.

    The show was on Friday, the producers and NBC were trying to tap into the same audience that likes Grimm. Dracula stayed in it's time slot and same day so it was easy to find. It was a 10 episode mini series that ran the first 6 episodes in consecutive weeks took the normal Christmas/New Year hiatus all TV shows do because the audience is out visiting families and the ratings would have sucked if it had aired at that time. Then NBC again aired the last 4 episodes consecutively. That fact that NBC placed Dracula (a niche supernatural show) right after it's other hit niche supernatural show was actually a big plus and help as the idea was for the Grimm audience to be held over for Dracula. I think the mistake was that while Grimm really appeals to the young male demographic of 18 -25, the idea of Dracula, vampires and romance appeals more to women then young males.

    Dracula was not keeping the Grimm audience at all. While 2+ million viewers is considered a hit on cable TV this is network.
