‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ Season 1 is Must-See TV (Review)

19209162_fromdusktilldawnblog Written by: Paula Limbaugh Okay, I’m not sure what’s going on but I expected a lot more hype for “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.”  This has got to be one of the best shows out there yet I don’t see anything on social media covering it. 

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you do know the story of the infamous Gecko Brothers and the Titty Twister biker bar. This is a supernatural story of vampires and ancient gods.  The Titty Twister is to become both the downfall and a new beginning for Richie Gecko, the psychopathic brother.  He is played so well by Zane Holtz.  Then there is D.J. Cotrona as Seth the more rational brother.  Both guys have done an excellent job in playing roles that once belonged to George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino!  Jesse Garcia is the determined Texas Ranger, Freddie Gonzalez that follows the brothers to hell.

Anyone familiar with Gary Busey will do a double take when they spot his son Jake in the role of Professor Aiden Tanner, so uncanny.  Don Johnson has taken over as Sheriff Earl McGraw and Wilmer Valderrama as Carlos.  Seeing Robert Patrick play the role of Jacob Fuller is like frosting on the cake.  He is the only cast member that was also in one of the films, “From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money.”  Oh, and I can’t forget to mention Eiza Gonzalez, she is Santanico Pandemonium.  You gotta give the girl credit; she can stand up to Salma Hayek.  The casting is fantastic ant the storylines brilliant!  Each episode is action-packed and leaves you wanting more.  Check out the writing credits and you’ll find both Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino listed, along with some other fabulous writers.  If this isn’t enough to get you excited, Gregory Nicotero also has a hand in the makeup effects.

The series was developed by Robert Rodriguez and stays true to the original story while also delving deeper into the Gecko Brothers lives and the vampire culture.  It can be found on Rodriguez’s new TV channel El Rey or outside the US on Netflix as a Netflix original.   The series first aired on March 11 2014 and ran for 10 episodes.  Season 2 is already in the making and will consist of 13 episodes.  Season 1 will be available on DVD/Blu-Ray in September.  Amazon instant video is also carrying the series.

Check out the trailer below to catch a glimpse of one of the best examples of must-see TV!

Stay tuned for season 2!
