Just started watching this series last night, and now I am almost finished with the first season. As a fan of classic literature (including the many gothic tales), I dig the premise of this series that features characters such as Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Van Helsing, Mina Harker (Dracula), etc. all tied together in London. It's a little kooky at times, but a good supernatural series. I also just learned that this series is produced by Sam Mendes whom many of us know better for directing hit films such as American Beauty, Revolutionary Road, and Skyfall. And this coincidentally popped up for me. (Published a mere two hours ago.)
