FROM DUSK TILL DAWN REVIEWED
“From Dusk Till Dawn” only had 10 episodes this season, but the action was never better. While cribbing from the CW’s Freak of the Week mold and a tad bit of The Magnificent Seven, “From Dusk Till Dawn” became the premiere show on El Rey. That being said, the formula is showing signs of distress. When half of a season is a given waste of no movement, then why keep returning back to that same Troublemaker well? Move on, Rodriguez.
There’s a larger story to be told here and they keep treading loosely upon a much bigger world. It’s just that if you can’t get the audience to buy into the world, then why keep pushing it? Mesoamerican mythology is fascinating, especially when the show dwells upon it. What could’ve served as an ending this season feels like it was purposefully stretched to make the series run longer. How many Texas Rangers are left in this world to make that possible?
Tom Savini was a fun addition to the show this year, but I miss the calm control of a Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey or Robert Patrick to keep the action on track. Check it out, if you’re a fan.

The Plot Thus Far
Season three of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” continues the Gecko brothers’ saga as they fight their way through the chilling world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. Once the baddest outlaws in the land, Seth and Richie made a run for the Border two years ago to save their lives – and their fortune. After stumbling into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, the Geckos encountered the vampire goddess Santánico, joining her cause to settle an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now that world is on the verge of violent and destructive explosion as new enemies hell-bent on domination gather to take them down. In typical Gecko fashion, Seth and Richie assemble an unlikely crew (some new, some old) to take on the forces of hell.
