TV: Should You Binge It? Castlevania

If you grew up in the age of the NES and SNES, you probably already know about this show. For those of you that don’t, Castlevania is a four part mini-season that focuses on the story from Castlevania III. We spend most of the show focusing on two characters, Dracula and Trevor Belmont.


The show is visually eye-catching, though the story is weak in some places. The show does a good job of making Dracula a sympathetic character, and having there be a rather unique enemy that you’re rooting against for much of the show. You can feel the constraints that the writers felt, worried that there wouldn’t be a renewal for a second season and dealing with a tight budget. The great news is that there will be a second season, and this first season is a quick 80 minutes of enjoyment.

And finally, to answer the age old question:

Should I binge it? Yes.
