Re: Dracula - NBC

Four episodes in, Dracula remains the most sympathetic character here. His plot to neutralize Lady Jayne Wetherby was really quite admirable; I didn't even suss to the endgame until it happened.

Meanwhile, the ostensible heroes of the series continue to be either stupid or utter bastards. Why did Mina do what she did in Van Helsing's office? Why would she even suspect that something weird was going on? And how can one root for the Order of the Dragon? They're worse monsters than Dracula.

I really like this version of Renfield. He's part sounding board, part mentor, and all capable.

The twist with Lucy wasn't unexpected after last week's bacchanal. Mina's obliviousness was almost amusing.
