Show Summary

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series is a supernatural crime saga centered around bank robber Seth Gecko and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richie Gecko, who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers after a bank heist left several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family, whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club populated by vampires. They are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.

The series deepens the tone of the original film, adds new characters and back stories and expands the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.

      Im watching via Freeview in the UK so we're only up to episode 6 of series 1 but that's it for me - I'm quitting before I throw my shoe through the TV. Firstly, most TV series of films use the core characters and basic plot premise but develop new storylines - D to D virtually follows the film script and this has several problems. One, we know exactly what's going to happen; eg we knew the teller was going to get it in the motel room. Two, the 2 hour film has been stretched to fill 10 hour episodes; this means no vampire action until the end of the series and each episode is stretched so that the hour covers about 10 minutes of the film. This leads to the second point - it is tediously slow, dull and un-engaging. It has no pace whatsoever and, without the vampires it's supposed to be about, has little tension or action. What tension can there be in the shoot-out at the motel when we know the Geckos escape in the RV? For me, a complete dud I'm afraid.moreless

      I'm only three episodes in, but holy unholiness! The pilot shows how that whole liquor store scenario *should* be done. The supernatural aspects are woven in from the beginning, so it isn't such a jagged splice between the crime drama and the supernatural.

      The Gecko brothers are terrific. (Don't listen to those other reviews-misinformed people living a lie-they deserve your pity, not your scorn). Richie is bat-guano crazy, but he's semi aware that he's seeing things he shouldn't see. Seth is, well, about the same as in the movie-but without the "look at me" star turn.

      Wilmer V. is casually evil, which is always nice to see. Robert Patrick breathes some life into the preacher, and the preacher's kids are more fully realized than their film counterparts.

      Things are still being set up. It's nice to see a series taking its' time to get rolling. So far, no Cheech Marin (meh) and no Selma Hayek (sigh).moreless

      Doesn't work as a comedy, doesn't work as a drama. A vampire series with no vampires until the seventh or eighth episode. Quentin Tarantino should file a law suit.

      Hopefully there will not be a season 2.

      Acting: 6/10 (some better than others)

      Story: 5/10 It never gives you that kick that makes you to long for the next episode.

      Sorry, but this is not good enough.
