    Re: Dracula

    Watched it and...

    First episode seemed promising. A new, more modern take on the old book. There was some pretty good double-entendre humor, which wasnt bad and although the end almost became a Van Helsing movie, I was impressed to quickly move onto the next episode.

    And then my doubts began. The Demeter part of the book was very short, and I was wondering why they kept going for an entire episode on that ship. The plot became an Agatha Christie type whodonit, though the audience already knew. I also figured out right away who was in Room 9. When the twist ending came I was doubly disappointed.

    Then the third and final episode- and it just turned craptacular. I skipped through most of it because I quickly lost interest.

    Summary: good first act, okay middle, terrible third. It was like two totally different shows mashed up into one.

    I thought the character Dracula became comical by the end
