Melanie - should need no introduction lol
Unless you are BRAND NEW to the site,(and well if you are then welcome,) then you will probably be aware of my fascination with vampires. I mean before I rebranded I was literally "The Vampire Loving Dork!" (and the name still fits). Of course you can't have vampires without Dracula, and although we have covered it before, Emily got an extra set of the NBC TV Series DVDs specifically for me to giveaway as we both love the show.
We are, in fact, in the minority when it comes to loving NBC's failed version. The story is unique, and whilst I don't know what the thinking was behind having Johnathon Rhys Meyers adopt an America accent - the costumes, the scenery, and the attention to details is exquisite. I watch those special features on the DVD often.
Although there is only one season, which does end in a kind of cliffhanger - the story was obviously planned to continue, it isn't the kind of cliffhanger that kills you like other shows, For me I know what I think would have happened and I guess at least in THAT way there was no chance of them ruining it.
Check out the trailer for the series below (Sadly at the time of posting I couldn't find anywhere it was streaming - It was on NBC so maybe Peacock will eventually get it). and one of the behind the scenes clips (there are a lot more on the DVD).
