    Well, here is a show that I seemed to have missed mention of before. :eek:

    NBC is doing a "limited-series" the fall of 2013 that takes on Dracula, the Bram Stoker classic that has already been the inspiration of dozens, if not hundreds, of books/movies/TV/articles, over the years. This time it is Jonathan Rhys Meyers starring as the title character who, in this interpretation, is an American businessman in Victorian London society who is out for revenge against those who had cursed him centuries before.

    I know that @Azhria Lilu is looking towards this because of the lead actor but I'm not sure the world really needs Dracula version.

    Looks decent. I find that so much of the vampire tv shows lack horror and revolve to much around drama.

    Loving the look of this. But then I love my vampire stories/movies/tv shows. I also love JRM I remember the first time I saw him on tv, it was in Gormenghast. Loved that show.

    This looks like it might have potential & will definitely give it a chance.

    But you'll still watch it just to see Rhys Meyers. :P It is the same reason my wife watches so many bad movies with Pitt or Clooney in them.

    The world needs a Dracula Heather Locklear but it doesn't mean that it'll be any good. :P

    Dracula doesn't premiere until 25 October on NBC (I think here in the UK we're getting it around the same time, maybe a week or later). It stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula, who comes to Victorian-era England as an American entrepreneur and falls for Mina Harker (the double of his dead wife).

    Am I the only one sad enough to be looking forward to this?

    As long as he rips a few throats every now and then and doesn't sparkle in the sunlight I'm good..

    I have to say I actually enjoyed the first episode.. More than sufficient to keep me tuned for a little longer anyway. :)
