We love the classic monsters as much as any of the others out there and since the clips for this particular television show looked interesting I wanted to share with the readers that NBC’s “Dracula” begins airing tonight and premiere’s its first episode.
According to the show’s Wikipedia entry “The series introduces Dracula as he arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier. There’s only one circumstance that can potentially thwart his plan: Dracula falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.” – I’ll admit that sounds kind of interesting to me. Dracula who is the embodiment of evil fighting against an even greater threat. It could work out. Will this be a show that you will sink your teeth into? I am sorry for going for that joke but it was a perfect fit.
