We’ve done the FOX, ABC, & CBS pilots, but now, Megan, Kyle, and I are back to talk about the NBC pilots for the 2013 season. We’ve each rated them as Watch, Maybe, or Skip, so check out what we have to say.
Dracula (Premieres 10/25)
Jenny: Intriguing, but way too complicated for me. I’m not a fan of period dramas, and maybe I just don’t know my history, but for the life of me, I couldn’t tell when this was supposed to be set. A lot of the acting felt over the top, etc. There’s a reason I don’t watch shows like The Tudors or Game of Thrones, etc. – Skip
Megan: I was expecting to love the whole episode as much as I loved the trailer…but I didn’t. While I still love the idea of the show, I didn’t love the full execution. I found the trailer moving quickly, but the show itself dragged. It’s unfortunate, because I had really high hopes, but now I’m just wondering if it’ll be NBC’s first cancelled show? – Skip
Kyle: I like the 19th century England setting—the production values are really great. The series is like Revenge, if Emily Thorne was a vampire willing to kill to get revenge on corrupt members of the aristocracy and a secret order trying to hunt down vampires. While I wasn’t blown away, I found the series to be an interesting new twist on the classic tale and will check out more. – Maybe
