Actually pretty good.
This popped up on Hulu while I was browsing foreign TV shows. I've been a long time Asian Drama fan, and had recently tried a few other shows from other countries and I decided to check out other countries. First off I am a huge sucker for vampire anything (*winks*) and the idea of watching one from Israel just seemed kind of awesome. I immiedately jumped right on it. To be bored for a while until our male lead meets our lady vampire. Which was one of the best scenes of the whole show. So good that it carried me through all the way to the end.
Which seemed to be the magic of this show. I speed watched a few parts, but there were always these great character scenes and moments that kept me going. It was this perfect blend of unique and fantastical new ideas for vampires. Then a wonderful Bromance that I just couldn't get enough of! Not to mention the entire cast was so well done.
I will say this is selling itself as a romance, but it is not. Not really. Besides that first episode I do not think there was much romance. Until the end where there's confessions of love and that just-ugh. The male lead had more time and connection with his Ex. Heck the lady vampire and the Ex had more development and connection than the intended romance. (Not kidding.) I was a bit annoyed by the very typical role of the only two female characters, who did not feel like leads. Not to mention the blood source most of the other females where. So, boo.
That said I enjoyed the plot so much. Sometimes the pacing got a bit off, but I give Juda tons of props for the surprise twists. Because shows barely surprise me anymore. Not to mention the fun connections of the characters.
I'm actually very much interested in a season 2 and hope there will be one in the future! I loved the unique mythology on vampires, it's always fun to discover the ideas never end. The characters are so much fun and wonderful together that I can't wait to see them grow together. Not to mention this ends on a pretty big twist and cliffhanger!!
