For the past few years network television has been obsessed with making shows based on the classics. The crime show Elementary was based on Sherlock Holmes and Hannibal on Silence of the Lambs but each of these shows have something that distinguishes it from the original tale. Dracula, though, seems to be suffering an identity crisis. The writers can’t figure out if they want to stick to the original story or add a sci-fi/steampunk subplot. In this season of re-imagined television, I don’t see anything special about it.
