Synopsis: It's the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula (Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He's especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night; useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan... until he becomes infatuated with a woman (Du Gouw) who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
Dracula: Season One is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Extras include:
Thanks for the warning. Did it at least not end with a cheap cliffhanger? I don't mind bling buying shows I'm interested in that get cancelled. But, they'll have to virtually give it away before I'll invest my money and time in something that leaves the viewer without any resolution.
I'm shocked they're even releasing it.i imported mine from the UK because I never thought he would see the light of day here... that's my play on vampire puns. I absolutely loved the underrated show, production value is gorgeous, music sublime and acting, very well done. I so wish Netflix would at least pick it up since nbc dropped the ball on this and now shows Crossbones instead. No real need to double dip though, extras are basically the same as the UK
The series was bad and Jonathan Rhys Meyers did a piss- poor presentation as Dracula. The story was all over the place. The American accent was dreadful!!! The inventor subplot was ridiculous! The only thing enjoyable were the set designs, art direction and costumes...and that's about it!
Why call it Season One? Since it is not being renewed, it should be re-titled to The Complete Series! Period!
@uther, it was cancelled. They replaced its timeslot with Constantine. The complaints are why are theyputting season one on the artwork when the show isn't going passed the first season so it should be called the complete series.
It ended fairly conclusively, so you're safe buying it IMO. However, it is a VERY slow burn, and there are too many characters and storylines to keep track of initially. You won't like it at first, but give it time. Patience is rewarded. I found it extremely satisfying by the end.
