Watched it, and will definitely revisit.
I'll give them another go!
Great! Like I need another hunky show to keep on top of!
(Scandal, Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon A Time, and Tribble on New Atlanta!)
I actually enjoyed the show. Jonathan really does make a perfect Dracula. It's got some good twists and turns in it already. It's on my DVR now. Not a favorite show yet, but I'll definitely keep watching for now.
I am sooooo tired of TV Vampires. That said, I wanted to watch this show because Jonathan Rhys Meyers is awesome. who knew Henry VIII was so hot? But I missed the first episode. I will have to start DVR-ing it.
I want to like it and I may watch it again, but, I think I am getting burnt out on vampires.
Surprisingly enough Dracula did well in the ratings even better than Grimm and that is in the dreaded Friday night 10 pm slot.
I thought Johnathan was an excellent choice of casting for this show. He does the alpha male dominant sort of characters so well.
And I watched the first episode. Actually I made a very real effort to watch it based on the previews and if around I'll watch the next episode but I'm probably only going to give this a couple shots and if it doesn't start moving (somewhere...anywhere) I'll give up on it.
I think my main issues were the female characters are generic and bland. I had no buy in with any of these lady characters. His faux american accent was distracting. I get it. I get why he does it but I'd be bought into the character and then blammo shook right out of it. I wanted a little more of an overview of the story line as a whole the first episode. My issue with first episodes is that they so frequently pack in every single character in that first showing and this show did that in spades. If I never see another ball I'd be happy. And the previews implied my favorite things were going to occur: sex, intrigue and violence. Minimal of all happened. This show was advertised to be a lot more sexy than it turned out to be. Granted I was spoiled by the Tudors in that department. But I was just left feeling meh about that part of it.
Well, it IS on national network TV. There's only so much they are going to do.
Looking forward to my Friday night dose of Dracula tomorrow. :D
