Re: Dracula - NBC

Almost every character turned out to be an irredeemable, self serving arsehole.

Apart from maybe that background character who was his head engineer, he just wanted to do a good job.

Poor Mina! She's in for a number of shocks. Her fiancee is a killer, her new lover is a killer, her mentor--Van Helsing--just killed two innocent children, and her best friend Lucy just turned into a murderous vampire as well. At this point, the only person in her life who isn't a fiend is her father, who we barely see.
The more I think about it, the more I suspect that what Dracula did to Lucy is what will sever the link between the newly happy couple. Mina could probably come around to the idea that Dracula has to feed on blood to live; she may not like it, but it's a necessity. But turning Lucy into a vampire for essentially no good reason? That one will be difficult, if not impossible, to accept.
Mina might also reasonably demand that Dracula confine his bloodlust to their enemies, as opposed to random women who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time . ..

Re: Dracula - NBC

It will be very interesting to see where things go if this does come back.
As for the other characters being as bad or worse than Dracula, a couple months ago I saw an interview where they brought that up and the people they were talking to, either writers or actors, I can't remember which, insisted that Dracula was the villain. I'm pretty sure after seeing the whole season, that most people would agree that wasn't the case. I've been trying to figure out if they actually felt that way, or if they were just saying that because they thought it was the way it is supposed to be.
I was pretty shocked at just how bad they ended up making Harker and Van Helsing. I was pretty shocked at what both of those characters did in the end. I kept thinking they were both going to being good guys in the end, but they pretty much went in the exact opposite direction. I was especially shocked that Harker didn't do anything to stop the demonstration once he realized what was going to happen. I kept expecting him to rush over, and fix whatever The Order guys did to it, but instead he just left. Same thing with Van Helsing. I figured he would end up letting the kids go, not turn them into Vampire and kill them with their father.
I look forward to seeing Vampire Lucy, if we do get a season 2.

Re: Dracula - NBC

Well, it seems that hopes for a second season have been dashed. Pity, as the show had great production values and some intriguing character arcs.

Re: Dracula - NBC

Can't say I regret the cancellation much. The show had a lot going for it, but I really didn't care for Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula, and now that I think about it, I'm very glad I won't have to see his performance in the role anymore.

Re: Dracula - NBC

I'm going to miss it a little. I wasn't a fan of the first episode, but it eventually won me over and I enjoyed watching it each week.

Re: Dracula - NBC

I'm disappointed to see it go, I was very curious where they were going to go if they got a second season.

I most regret that we'll never get to see Lucy the Vampire on the loose.

Re: Dracula - NBC

To echo things that have been said, yeah, I'm disappointed but not entirely surprised by this news. It was a fun series, and I was curious how Cole Haddon and his team were planning on ramping up the crazy in season two.

Then again, even as Dracula fades, we have Penny Dreadful picking up the torch . . . .

Did you watch the first episode yet? I watched it when it was up on the Showtime website for free and really enjoyed it. Sadly I don't have Showtime on my cable, so I'll have to wait for it to come to Blu-Ray/streaming to see more of it.
