NBC's Dracula S01E01 Review
|Dracula NBC - Jonathan Rhys Meyers|
This NBC’s Dracula adaptation is a lot different from what we saw before. We are used to see Dracula as a vicious predator, that won’t stop by anything or anyone from getting his pray or completing his evil master plan – in other words a classic villain. But in this NBC Dracula TV series everything flipped on its head, Jonathan Rhys Meyers Dracula was a completely different character. Dracula is not portrayed as a villain but as a grey character that floats in between good and evil. Jonathan Rhys Meyers Dracula is vindictive individual that wants to get his revenge against the order that killed his wife centuries ago. The person that helped Dracula come back to life 30 years ago was ... the last person you would think ... Abraham Van Helsing himself. When you see that, the show triggers your interest. How come those two are working together? and that makes you wonder what will be the turning point to spark their legendary conflict.
This Dracula TV series has a lot of potential but from the first episode you could see that there are a lot of as well . There are a lot of misplaced scenes that tend to do nothing for the show and the only reason that they are there is showcasing cheap heat, showing hot chicks with large cleavages and make us listen to boring dialogs with characters that don’t seemed to look important. No doubt that NBC's Dracula needs some work but from a first glance (Pilot) its worth checking out.
