    it’s on ABC. i give it 5 episodes before it’s cancelled but it sounds interesting.

      ABC typically fails with its genre fare. They seem to do much better with things like (the admittedly wonderful) MODERN FAMILY. Plus, the title GOTHICA being a slight variation on (the Halle Barre starring) GOTHIKA scared me before I read the context.

    So there is this, then there are the new “Dracula”- series coming, “The Following”, “The Walking Dead”,”American Horror Story” etc. and lots of fairy tale – based series running on TV. Good times for horror fans, but you gotta look for the cream of the crop.
    But the self-cannibalism/overkill will be inevitable.
