Am about ten minutes in to the new Netflix Dracula, and I’m delighted by Agatha and want the whole thing to be about HER instead.

“You’re naked, they’re nuns, it’s not your eyes they’re not looking at.”

I swear Sister Agatha is my Patronus.

“The purpose of an alias seems to have eluded you.” SISTER AGATHA, YOU ARE MY FAVOURITE.

“Captain Sokolov, you are relieved of command.”

GO AGATHA!

“Count Dracula? Go to hell.”

I actually leap out of my chair, clap, and yell “YAY AGATHA!”

Show thread

“God will take care of Sister Agatha. If God knows what’s good for him.”

Jesus, I’m in love with this goddamn series.

“As we used to say in Vladivostok.”

My goodness, this is some fearless writing.

Oh that was very well done. Very, very well done indeed. Lovely nod to Murnau at the end.

That was Netflix’s new Dracula three-parter, and it’s FABULOUS. Lovely writing, good storytelling choices. Misogyny’s still there, but it’s in the source DNA, and handled well.

I have stayed up too late to watch it, and now must trundle to bed. Well done indeed, I haven’t enjoyed myself like that since watching MIDSOMMAR.

The Little Prince watched it with me, and he swears I’m Sister Agatha.

I could do without the dying bit, though.

@lilithsaintcrow I got the email about it (you might like this etc) but thought it would be just another rehash; like Twilight with less glitter.

Sounds like its more than that.
