Alexander Dumas is my favorite writer, so when I discovered yet another version of his beloved classic I was skeptical. It took a few episodes to convince me, but I grew to really like this version. It uses familiar characters but changes the storyline enough to keep me interested. Well done.
I was a little disappointed with "Freak Show", but "Hotel" reminded me of why this show is so great. It has just enough thrills to feel spooked but doesn't cross into the total blood and gore territory. This show is perfect for someone who likes a some suspense but is not a big fan of the horror genre.
