In the whole of the world of “Dracula” adaptations, there’s not a lot of material in which you really, really, really like the Count. Sure, you feel bad for him; hell, you may even empathize with him (we’ve all been hangry at some point, ‘kay?). But then Claes Bang comes along and gives us a Dracula we really, really, really like.

Seriously—he’s so charming and dashing and well-dressed that audiences are willing to shrug off the fact he kills children, slaughters thousands of people, and is incredibly selfish. He even has a nun under his spell, but if we go any further, we’d spoil it for you, so just watch it already, we’re dying to talk about it.

“The Witcher” was originally a popular Polish book series before it was adapted into a video game, of which it garnered even wider acclaim. The story follows Gerault of Rivia, a mutant witcher who’s hired to kill evil beings and who supposedly lacks emotions. Henry Cavill plays the role in the Netflix series well, highlighted by his co-stars Anya Chalotra as Yennifer, and the smart-aleck bard, Jaskier, as played by Joey Batey. It’s dark, it’s gross, and it’s so. Friggin. Addicting.

The whole "Witcher" scenario is doubly satisfying because it was lambasted by critics but was delightfully gobbled up by fans, showcasing how it's a show of the people, not the snotty elites.
