Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 3] (1998-1999)

This has always been my favourite season of Buffy, even though it is possibly not the best. It features a couple of strong episodes, but also a number of weak ones. One of season 3’s strengths lies in the fact that the combination of new and returning characters provides an excellent mix. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 2] (1997-1998)

Season 2 has improved acting and it introduces additional characters. The tone and the themes are much darker than in season 1, and the vibe of despair is stronger than anywhere else in the first four seasons. But there is still a good amount of humour mixed in at times. […]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 1] (1997)

I am hoping to re-watch the entire show over time, and I will post my thoughts here, even though everyone on the planet knows the show already. […]

Der Kleine Vampir – Neue Abenteuer (1993)

Although it is a sequel (of sorts) to the 1986 TV-series The Little Vampire, this German-language production is not available in other languages. Which is just as well, because it is – unfortunately – not really good. […]

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series [season 2] (2015)

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series [season 1] (2014)

The first season of the From Dusk Till Dawn series re-tells the plot of the original film, tweaking and changing certain elements and characters, and adding a larger back-story. Despite some structural problems, this show should be enjoyable for fans of the film and for “newcomers” alike. […]

Young Dracula [seasons1&2] (2006-2008)

The first two seasons of this enjoyable BBC show are light and comedic in tone, and hence are – unlike the later seasons – suitable even for younger children. The highlight of these seasons is the performance of Keith-Lee Castle as an out-of-touch vampire father. […]
