The Borgias - 0 Tudors - 6: review of the Showtime series starring Jeremy Irons

2013 New Dracula Series

I am eagerly waiting the new Dracula tv series that stars one of my favorite actors, Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula. If that were so, I'm glad he has centuries to score b*tches, because, I would like to take like this century, he has plenty more, b...
