Dracula is an old favorite here at The Other Side.
I have seen just about every movie featuring the Count, read scores of books about him and I was even in the play back in High School.
So it is with some excitement and trepidation that I report on the new series coming to NBC.
The trailer looks interesting and I am glad it is set in the Victorian Era rather than modern times.
The trailer looks good, and it seems to be a retelling of the Dracula novel and/or play. There is a character named "Browning" in the cast that I am sure is a nod to Todd Browning.
It stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers from The Tudors as Dracula, so that is a good start.
Sure he is a bit young looking, but that is not a big deal.
I see they are going with the "immortal love" angle from recent movies though. Not fond of that idea BUT it does give Drac a reason not to kill Mina right away and prolong a series.
I would have preferred to see to see this on Showtime or HBO, but hey at least we are getting something right?
I am looking forward to this. Should be on the air about the same time True Blood takes their season finale.
