Okay, let’s get this out of the way. This is a SyFy product and you have to temper your expectations accordingly. Also it is based on the Zenescope’s comic Van Helsing – so your primary character is going to be a woman.
I have seen a lot of negativity around this one and, to be fair, if you only watched the first episode I can understand where this was coming from. It almost seemed that the makers wanted to do the Walking Dead but, because zombies had been done, they called them vampires.

Is it the best thing ever… God, not by a long shot but it doesn’t deserve the scorn it has earned. The complaints all read like the viewer never got past the first episode. Once past that there is something worthwhile – as a syfy release, of course, but worthwhile nonetheless. 5.5 out of 10. The imdb page is here.
