    It's really pretty goo.

    Every time I see Timothy Dalton, however, I can't help but think he's the worst James Bond EVER!

    i watch it; there's been some interesting scenes and some strange scenes (like when Eva Green is naked in bed alone and violently humping the air). i still don't understand the storyline though, of course with the scenes Eva Green performs in it really doesn't need much more of a plot.

    I'm not surprised; you think a car parked in the fast lane is all good. I'm not particularly ragging on you, but maybe you need to pay more attention to one thing at a time.


    The storyline involves Timothy Dalton trying to get his daughter, Mina, back from Dracula. London must have been very small back then, because also included in the story are Dr Frankenstein (and monster), Dorian Gray, and (I suspect) the wolfman will make an appearance before they're through.

    Hmm, may have to check it out, sounds a bit like Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

    Not sure about the Wolfman. The studio tried to drum up interest in viewership and part of their marketing was a screener of the first episode and a book set of the classics: Frankenstein, Dracula and Dorian Gray. I tried reading Frankenstein again and nearly ripped my hair out.

    Did I call it on the wolfman, or what?

    This explains why he was unafraid about kissing the girl with tuberculosis...he's a fucking wolfman!
