That’s one tasty burger!
I pay for all sorts of ridiculous channels on my DirecTV, yet I don’t get El Rey. This sucks because I didn’t like the pilot of Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”. And even though I disliked it, I felt there was potential, and I do want to see where it goes. Unfortunately, I’ll have to wait until it’s on Netflix.
Those of you keeping up with the show can enjoy a nod to Mr. Tarantino with the on-screen debut of the commercial for “Big Kahuna Burger”, debuting in a brand new episode this Tuesday at 9pm on El Rey Network.
Based on the cult-classic film of the same name, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is centered around bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) after a bank heist leaves several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires. They are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone and expands the storyline of the film, adds new characters and backstories and explores the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.
