Hilarious in its sarcasm
20 August 2019 | by ok-patrickSee all my reviews

Half way through e01 and I find it hilarious in its sarcasm. There's one more ep out there for which I'm pressing play shortly.

Kirsten Dunst is just shy of 40, far older when we first met her in Interview with a Vampire, and admittedly, I've never been a fan of her acting, however, I'm surprisingly liking her here. Alexander Skarsgård, Ted Levine & Julie Benz are also thrown in the mix.

Worth a shot in my opinion, not sure though as of yet if it can hold any water for a second season though.
