Alexander Lucard: And although I'm aware of the fact that closing the plant in Arvennes will put hundreds out of work, and perhaps kill the town, one must realize that... it was an ugly little town, anyway.

Dracula: the family show
12 December 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Its on DVD. I got the first 11 episodes off the 5.99 rack at Best Buy.

This show is corny. Very corny. But it knows it is and doesn't take it self too seriously. I believe this was a kids show aimed at army brats and expatriots kids in Europe. It really bizarre how this is supposed to be in Spain or somewhere and every one, including the police captain, speak with an American accent. I love how Sophie is always making snide comments about Americans but doesn't even attempt to hide her accent.

Its nice show for Vampire completest and Americans living abroad with kids.

(BTW, Geraint Wyn Davies is in this as a vampire. This was two years before "Forever Knight". And Mia Kershner is in this as Sophie, long before her staring role in "The L Word.")
