5.0 out of 5 stars Such a surprisingly refreshing view on the subject matter, 12 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Dracula - Season 1 [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I was trepidatious about this, to say the very least. And the trailers didn't tell me squat of what to expect. So I watched.

And I found the story of Dracula teaming up with Van Helsing to take down the rich and powerful Order of the Dragon (who have caused them both so much heart ache in their personal lives) so refreshing!

Jonathan Rhys Meyers manages to portray the dark intensity of Dracula very well, without being completely cheesy. You can't help but feel for the centuries old vampire as he tries to do the right thing by the woman he so deeply loves, even if it hurts him. (Besides, I was always on Dracula's side in all the movies. Why can't the mortals just let him have his love?)

If you were looking for a carbon copy of the source material, this isn't for you.

But if you're willing to open your mind and take things with a pinch of salt and a side of cheese, then you will enjoy this show. I am loving every single second of it. It's officially my "must see" of the week.

Pleople write reviews about a product NOT released. Its out NOW (Feb.2014) but why do you write about a DVD in November2013?
Where is the talk about the EXTRAS? The sound, the quality of the DVD or BlueRay?

People KNOW about the plot, no need to post it here. I wanna buy a DVD and want to know how the quality is and th etxras.
Stupid reviews. Why does Amazon support this?

Probably because sometimes a person doesn't just need information on the DVD quality or the extras. If I were to buy a DVD blind without having seen the show beforehand (as I have done in the past), reviews about the actual show helps me figure out if it's something I want to spend money on or not. If that helps you any.

I for one actually consider the reviews about the show itself far more important than a simple list of features or the quality of the transfer. Most DVDs have very similar quality (unless taken from very old sources) and I usually ignore the extras, however the plot is something I will base an opinion on especially for something like this where I know next to nothing about this particular adaptation which seems to bear little resemblance to the source.
