Are vampires still a thing? I thought we moved past that already.ReplyDelete
Billy the Kid doesn't look bad. I'm sure it's one Jason will want to watch.
These are the royal vampires.Delete
Talking about vampires, I just began watching Discovery of Witches. Did you like it? Since I don't have EPIX, I'm not into any of these projects.Delete
Royal vampires are more exciting than regular vampires then? I think I'll just skip past all vampires at this point.Delete
Which season? The first one was boring, the second one also but more watchable as it was in Elizabethan London, and I have not started yet the third and final one, but I do have it downloaded, I hear the reactions of the audience were not overly good.Delete
Domina was nice, and I'm happy it is getting a new season, too bad it is not on Netflix, it would have better ratings.
I’m still on the first season. There are things I like, there are things I don’t. I’m looking forward to the time-traveling season.Delete
Good question. Why didn’t Netflix pick Domina? Didn’t have enough nudity? The political message was not strong enough?
Netflix is always evil towards period set and costume drama, they only like it if it is distorting history like in Bridgerton or if it is very gory like Barbarians.Delete
I do like the Ancient Rome costumes and atmosphere!ReplyDelete
It was a very subdued atmosphere, but still watchable and nice. Hope the second season will be more dynamic.Delete
Its been a really long while. Vampire Academy film series sound good.ReplyDelete
Teens will like it, us adults not so much :)Delete
I’m with Theresa! I thought we were past the whole vampire trend. I made I through the first round without ever seeing Twilight or True Blood. I’m not sure I’ll make it through a round 2. LolReplyDelete
I'd check this one for hunks, though, although I expect it will be utter trash, more suited for CW than Peacock.Delete
