I thought Alec Newman was awesome as a vampire warrior on DRACULA.  It makes me regret all over again that we didn't get to see more of him as Barnabas.

The character seems to have been written out, but as on DS, he could always come back...

According to the synopsis & credits, Buzz does not actually appear... so I presume that this is simply mentioned in dialogue.  Nancy Barrett playing Carolyn... this I have to hear!

For reals?  Who plays Buzz?  I may have to investigate...

Wow.  That's exciting to know, Mysterioso Dahling!  I would hope that Dracula can be a prestige project for the network and we can get ten more episodes even if we have to wait till the Autumn of 2014.  I'm getting quite a kick out of this Dracula, particularly the scenes between JRM and Vicki Smurfit (I think the actors may be friends in real life).

There are some cool images on this site including a four panel shirtless gif of one of JRM's boudoir scenes from the last episode:

A friend has told me that this series is not performing very well in the ratings game, so it seems unlikely that it will be renewed.  (The series only lasts 10 episodes.)

Wow.  Really can't wait to catch up with this show. 

Hopefully fans who are curious can find the Youtube clip I had posted earlier with an excerpt from Alec Newman's performance as Barnabas.  As I've stated repeatedly, he is the only actor other than Jonathan Frid who I thought actually achieved the impossible and gave us a new approach to the character to enjoy.

I love the guy with the afghan. 

Michael,I am pretty sure both the Tarrytown event and the Cruise are happening.

You really need to see BRIDES OF DRACULA, MB.  The histrionic dowager factor is high with Martita Hunt (the greatest Miss Havisham of them all, in David Lean's 1940s film of GREAT EXPECTATIONS) and Freda Jackson duelling for the role of scenery shredding doyenne.  I think it's a tie though Freda just may have the edge for this extraordinary scene where she performs wake-up call duties for a new Bride.

It's also probably the most Freudian vampire movie ever made, with some great setpieces...

Hi Bette, thanks for the clarification.  I was going to say that that looked like Marie Wallace in the photo, and I hadn't recalled her being announced as a guest.  What a treat for everyone.  Marie is such a darling.  I'm glad she evidently has recovered sufficiently to be able to enjoy a sea voyage!

It's great to hear that those who went had such a good time, and lovely that those who wish to do so will be able to attend next year.

cheers, G.

That's awesome, MB.  Thanks for mentioning this!

Hey, wait, does this appearance involving Thayer demonstrating a certain trick device to the good Lieutenant?  I just may have seen it...

My brain... once, I had one... lol.

Best, G.

I love the 3 Widows.  KLS looks great in her diner waitress outfit.  I wonder if that is LP next to her in the Mardi Gras swag. 

I was curious about the clump of maybe four fans sporting fedoras and blue sunglasses, then figured it out:  they're cosplaying BarnaDepp.  So much for the theory that the Burton/Depp production has irretrievably divided fandom.

It's pretty much off topic, but the complete COLUMBO box set is today's deal (11/5/2013).  It's around 60 bucks and the usual retail price is around 160.

I think at least a couple of DS stars appeared in guest roles on Columbo.  I remember a rumor that Grayson did one but it would appear that that was not true.  I think Columbo was one of the few 1970s series Thayer DIDN'T appear on...

For anyone who hasn't seen it, there's a cool tape here of a live skit that JGL did with Neil Patrick Harris at what I think was a benefit at the Orpheum theatre in LA 2 years ago:

In DRACULA'S DAUGHTER, Countess Zaleska seeks "treatment" for her "condition" believing that modern psychotherapy might help.  In HOUSE OF DRACULA (which may have been where Malcolm Marmorstein, or whoever originated the idea of Dr. Julius Hoffman, got the idea), the Count's blood is analysed and the results are very similar to Julia's 1967 diagnosis ("the destructive nature of your blood cells... introduce a new plasma into your arterial system"). 

In the 1958 HORROR OF DRACULA, van Helsing alternatively speaks of vampirism as a cult or a disease.  In BRIDES OF DRACULA (1960) it's implied that vampirism is a form of spiritual perversion and one could pick it up simply by going to the wrong parties.  In KISS OF THE VAMPIRE, the idea of the vampires practicing an inverted form of Christianity reaches a mature expression, one which continues through the remainder of the Hammer Dracula film series.

DS stole from a number of classic horror and fantasy films. It's always fun when you're watching a film and suddenly realize that something is there that most likely inspired a favorite episode or plot point on DS.
