Dracula is back and so are the scandals


Personally, I found Dracula very refreshing. It's Gothic with contemporary touch and strong feminist inclination. It's Dracula without "Vampires are so evil" and "Women are women". This change is so drastically shown in the end of the first episode. It's mind boggling. Even if you have read Bram Stoker's Dracula, you are gonna be captured by the twists and originality of the show. Strong plot, great actors and Gorgeous clothes! Definitely must watch.

Last but not the least, the troubled artist Jonathan Rhys Meyer with his history of substance abuse. NBC decided to withheld major part of his salary to make sure that Jonathan completes the 10 episodes of the series soberly. Let's hope he doesn't overdose again and their are many more seasons to come.
