Da Vinci-Dl Toro started a masterpiece and then spilled broth on it
10 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

You will enjoy this show if you 1. are living in 70s 2. can put your common logic on hold 3. horror genre fanatic regardless of the plot holes

in all cases otherwise, you will not! there are holes after holes but the worst is switching " A WHOLE KID" from a sweet boy to someone you want to smack for no reason!

Some other worthy of mention are . 1.An all powerful master often hires petty humans to do simple chores. 2. A very important coffin once destroyed turns out to be of no consequence. 3. The age old holocaust clichés, like seriously. how long are they going to milk this goat? 4. No one has a clue for a long long time and then all of a sudden the whole world knows and the mighty USA deploys 200 troops to protect the 2nd largest city in the world. 5. There are needless scenes after scenes that have no connection to the ongoing plot. Quite obviously they are having difficulty filling a 50 minutes episode.

Plot holes are not where it stops, some of the main actors should have been sucked out by the master just on poor performance. ie Dutch, the kid, (they will do wonderful as dumb vampires.)

Its a good plot being ravaged by below average writers. Hope del toro is taking note of this.
