  • Unwatchable

    This show is useless..
  • Resist your initial misgivings and give it a chance.

    I know what you're thinking when you read that this show intertwines Dracula, Frankenstein, werewolves, and other classic horror stories: the awful joke of a movie known as "Van

    Trust me, this show is worlds apart from that terrible movie. This show manages to tie various classic horror stories together in a way that is not at all cheesy.

    If you are a fan of horror, then give this show a chance. You will not be disappointed.moreless
  • What A Pleasant Surprise!

    I was completely resistant to this show - even after Showtime graciously allowed us to see the first episode for free last spring, I let my biases sway me. Out of desperation (the DVD's I wanted were not available at my library) - I borrowed and binge-watched all of Season 1. Boy, was I wrong. It was not the standard "Victorian vampire mystery" - but so much more. Will be writing on the Community page - don't want to spill too much here.moreless
  • Delicious

    (Un)holy damn, what a great first season! I just binged on season 1, and I have to say, I'm rarely as pleased with a recommendation as I was this time. This genre is difficult to nail down (or stake down?), with so many shows about pretty vampires or bubblegum horror, but PD pulled off a dark, seamless masterpiece in its first season. I wholeheartedly recommend others to watch this show!
