When high-level energy meets contagious joie de vivre, the results are breathtaking. This is the story of some of the most enthusiastic people I have ever met.
I am not too much into audio, usually there is something in the mise-en-scene that does not quite match my own mental construct. If the voice does not seem right for the character, it distracts me from the story, which is why I usually prefer the written version. However, a dear friend was so delighted and unable to stop talking about them, that I gave in... They fit! Instant hook-line-and-sinker. That’s what friends are for, right?
When Season 2 was announced, it was like a dream come true, for which I was waiting a bit anxiously, though, being disappointed by others’ less than satisfactory sequels in the past. And it was one of those rare occasions when I couldn’t be happier to be wrong about something!
Usually, my biggest source of distress is the consistency in character development. Not the case, not in the slightest! All of them are so real and true to their nature, both as individuals, out of context, but also as part of this world, which is not called World of Darkness for no reason!
And the tension build-up, from voice acting, course of events, plot twists to background music, is priceless!
Vampires are monsters, no matter if they are Golconda seekers or just hunting for fun. I was so glad that they chose not to make it idyllic, not because I love violence, but because this is the universe in which these creatures live.
Nevertheless, you don’t have to take my word for it, just give it a try, it’s as simple as that.
