Very stagey and affected acting style happening in this series. Maybe that’s its gimmick but I found it rather silly.

Love the show so far. Great idea incorporating Dr. Frankstein and Dorian Gray. Also, I love the western cowboy twist. The backdrop (early London) also adds some flavor to the series. I have found all of the principal characters to be interesting and the plot and sub-plots have keep me very interested. Certainly, I am hoping the series will be renewed. Now if this newwork would pick-up COPPER they would have two sure winners!!!
