Hahaha.  You're reminding me why that comic wound up in my recycling bin about five seconds after I finished reading it.

No, this was the BarnabasUndead material.  I'd forgotten about that site but MB helpfully jogged my memory. 

I don't remember making a copy of it because I wasn't all that interested at the time.  It would be interesting to re-read since the discussion here is going into such detail about this thwarted project.

One wonders whether a plot outline for season 1 was ever generated.  I would presume so since they were pitching it and spending so much money...

Gee... you thought the nudity was unnecessary?  I thought it made perfect sense given what was happening... and was pretty unexceptional...

My favorite thing is Eva Green as Vanessa Ivy. Wow.  I'm wondering though if Alan Moore has grounds for a lawsuit.  It is VERY reminiscent of the original comic books, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN... Green's character in particular is reminiscent of Mina Murray (who, somewhat confusingly, is also a character in this).  A to-me-unrecognizable Timothy Dalton plays Sir Malcolm Murray who seems very much based on Allan Quatermain in the LEAGUE comics (borrowed from the Rider Haggard novels, of course).  Simon Russell Beale plays a possibly mad Egyptologist at the British Museum (and reminded me of the late Victor Buono in the role... hope he comes back).  A young actor, Harry Treadaway, appears as a believably neurotic and obsessed Victor Frankenstein.  Rory Kinnear has a surprise role...

The first episode includes vampires, Jack the Ripper, Frankenstein (obviously), tarot cards, Egyptology, mummies, carnivorous beetles, spiders, ghosts, and no doubt more I'm forgetting...

The Victoriana here is a little more believable than was the case in Jonathan Rhys Meyers' eye-poppingly lush DRACULA.  If I had Showtime, I'd definitely be watching.

There's an interview somewhere in print with Terrayne where she talked about how fond the fans were of the Beth role.  When she came back, she did not care for the role of Edith, and neither apparently did the fans.  She spoke of fans writing letters in imploring the show to bring Beth back.

This may be the only instance, apart from Diana Millay with Laura, that I've heard of someone who worked on the show being so personally invested in a specific role.

dom honey, I really appreciate your astutely written review of this bagatelle, especially your red flag regarding

gratuitous full frontal male nudity.

As the Cyber Leader on Dr. Who used to say... EXXX-CELLENT.

This is definitely on my must-view list now...

reference for Jason Shaw's nude photo, please?

Maybe I need to pay better attention to these threadlets...

[spoiler]Maybe I'm hallucinating, but I remember reading about a leaked version of the script in which Angelique materialized at the Blue Whale and indulged herself in wreaking some catty havoc and/or quizzing another character about the current personnel at the Great House.  Perhaps that was one of the fabricated leaks, or simply disinformation.  Anyhow it sounds as if this isn't on the radar for coming attractions in this thread.[/spoiler]

cheers, G.

MB, you've got me in suspense!  another scene I don't recall at all from my viewing.

I recall hearing talk of certain scenes that were scripted but apparently cut involving Our Favorite Witch... I wonder whether there will be time to fit discussion of this in.  At the rate you're going, I'm not sure you're going to get to the end of the episode by New Year's Eve!

Wonderful photos!  The one of Vicki with the director and the creature actor (which is scarier to stand next to for a young actress??) reminds me of a candid photo that surfaced during the MPI distro period of Julia and Barnabas with Alex in full werewolf makeup.  And, a little, of my friend Nicky's favorite photo of Vicki being menaced by all the ghouls and horrors of Collinwood... Barnabas, Nicholas, Adam, Cassandra.

Love today's shot of HBC.  Maybe some day I'll get to see this one deleted scene between Liz and Julia.  I think it is the only one that has been made available.  Who knows if more was shot.

The two are for me the only redeeming element in this thing... well, I also liked Magtoria on the train as Nights in White Satin played...

I don't know if this particular review was posted here with others back in 2012.  Nancy Kersey just posted the link on FB.  I thought it was an interesting take on Depp Shadows. The author also talks about the original series and the other incarnations:

That's hot stuff, MB.

Are you at liberty to reveal who wrote that? 

I wonder if the people behind the Jonathan Rhys Meyers DRACULA series had seen the script or the pilot...  I will leave it at that for now.  As I posted while watching the episodes, there were several story references that were a clear nod to events and personalities in the DS 'verse.

Very cool photos, MB! And excellent descriptive work and dialogue transcription, as always.

I think Leonard Frey, whose brilliant performance as the bete-noire of the evening in Boys has to rank as one of the most truly Gothic moments in American cinema, did have a decent career.  Not well known to the public, perhaps, but fame can be a highly overrated experience, or so I have been told.

I love that VP quote--"Hollywood is the most evil place on earth."  Grayson could barely stand going out there yet she did so every year.  That's enough for me.

I'm glad your memories are so strong MB.  I can't recall this scene at all.  I might have been distracted by whoever I was sitting with, though.

Very cool touch having the garlic flowers interwoven with the chains...

Fascinating.  I wonder whether the dried blossoms were supposed to have been garlic flowers?
