Castlevania became a classic video game franchise on the strength of labyrinthine level design, endearingly stilted dialogue, and bombastic aesthetics. The Netflix series based on the Konami property doesn't use those elements in exactly the same way but finds its own path to being a great adaptation of the games' whip-cracking, demon-killing lore.

Castlevania debuted on Netflix last week, and it's already been renewed for a second season. The show's gotten a mixed but largely positive response, especially from fans who see it as an animated Game of Thrones. Given that's what the show had in mind, it's no surprise they threw in a GoT Easter egg.

Two days ago, news broke that a Castlevania TV show would be heading to Netflix in 2017, prompting thousands of jokes quoting dialogue from the video game series. In a Facebook post, producer Adi Shankar said, "I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the Western world's first good video game adaptation." I talked to Shankar yesterday and he sounds totally committed to that.
