Dracula (NBC TV series, 2013)


I have mixed feelings about this new NBC series, starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. Dracula in Victorian London is of course great idea, but this series seems to have unatmospheric lighting, boringly modern evening clothes to Mina and Lucy and Vlad-the-Impaler-is-romantic-hero rubbish.   Some scenes also hinted possibility of sickeningly gory garbage. On the other hand, our Renfield does not seem to be carelessly brutalized mentally ill or physically handicapped minion, which I am thankful of.
