Adi Shankar’s retelling of the Castlevania lore has come a long way since its initial premise as a live action series that seemed more Underworld than Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. The first two seasons were a loose retelling of the events of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, with that book closed and Dracula dead, the path was completely open for where Shankar would choose to take his series for its inevitable third season.
This is the week I’ve been dreading, I’m doing the seven days leading up to Christmas at work back to back. I just need to hope my prep work was enough that I can keep getting these uploads done in a timely manner.
All I really left myself to do on the day is write these little intros, and I’m already struggling with that. So Apologies if the next few days are bearly eyed nonsense.

A sentiment I’ve many film buffs lamenting these past few years is the current trend of mainstream movie veering away from from tackling difficult or challenging subject matter. We live in a franchise driven industry right now, one where everything needs to have as broad an appeal as possible.
Disney is more guilty of this than anyone, culling their own Marvel Cinematic Universe for the sake of of having it slot into a much neater, and more easily marketable form. The cancelation of Netflix’s Marvel series being the first victim of this.
