O.K. Nerds, gather round and listen up! If you’re like me and remember an old but highly revered video game series known as Castlevania then this is just for you. I started watching it at 2am this morning and I finished the 4 episode season before the sun had a chance to rise. The story revolves around Trevor Belmont, a weathered protagonist who’s forced into a battle against Dracula and his evil forces by unforeseen circumstances. Renowned comic book writer and novelist Warren Ellis wrote this show as an onscreen adaptation of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse but what I didn’t know was that this idea had been kicked around for over a decade. I read via Polygon that the original plan was for it to be a full length straight to DVD release. I’m happy that they decided to make it a Netflix series instead as it will probably receive a much bigger audience. I really enjoyed the writing and the character development, Season 2 should be just as good if not better.
