From Dusk Till Dawn (Season 1 - 2014)



I absolutely love the movie From Dusk Till Dawn ('s-blu-rays/from-dusk-till-dawn-(1996)/msg23294/#msg23294) and was very much looking forward to checking out the new series of the same name. Even though I wanted to see this and caught the trailer for it a few months back, I was very skeptical about just what we would get in a series. I noticed some obvious references to the movie, but I figured the first episode would be pretty much a greatest hits package and then launch into something along the lines of Blade: The Series ('s-blu-rays/blade-the-series-(season-1-2006)/msg23498/#msg23498). Nope. Robert Rodriguez has something else in mind. He basically took the movie and expanded it for an entire season (10 episodes in all) from start to finish.

What we get is a lot of back story involving pretty much all the major players and then some with regards to stories we only heard about in the film as well as creating new ones altogether. A couple of new additions to flesh out the cast and you got yourself something rich in plot as well as character development. As much as I love the film, it always struck me as a bit odd that it goes from Crime to Horror and we never really knew why. Well, the series pretty much tells you everything you need to know and it makes you view the film in a completely different light in ways you couldn't imagine. I was very surprised at just how good the series turned out to be. The actors are great but I gotta say, every time that Seth spoke on screen, be it lines from the movie or new dialogue, all I could hear in my head was George Clooney talking.

There are a couple of major revisions from film to series and that was letting both Richie and Scott "live". I'm definitely down for Season 2 as this will obviously forge it's own path now that they have filled in the blanks during Season 1. I'm definitely going to keep an eye on a Used copy of this season to Buy for sure. With that out of the way, I really hope that the success of the movie to TV transition of Dusk will prompt Tarantino to bite the bullet and do The Vega Brothers as a TV series instead of a movie (which it really can't do because of Travolta and Madsen's age, among other logistics.) The final two episodes of Season 1 pretty much said that it could work as a series.
