Jonathan Rhys Meyers stars as “Dracula.”
TV picks for Oct. 25-27: "Dracula,” "Springsteen & I,” "The Walking Dead,” "A Raisin in the Sun”
- October 24, 2013 - 2:13 PM
Compare your dedication to the Boss with the superfans in “Springsteen & I” (8 p.m. Friday, Showtime), a mix of concert footage and commentary from those who would travel a million miles to hear “Born to Run.” BYOL (Bring Your Own Lighter).
Fangs a lot
Jonathan Rhys Meyers is “Dracula” (9 p.m. Friday, KARE, Ch. 11) in this new take on the legend that has the Count posing as an American businessman seeking revenge on families who betrayed him centuries earlier. This adult version of “The Vampire Diaries” has some bite, but the ultra-somber mood may leave you craving a screening of the spoof “Love at First Bite.”
A box of Raisins
Those who can’t afford to see Denzel Washington and Diahann Carroll do “A Raisin in the Sun” on Broadway next year can get their theater fix with “A Raisin in the Sun Revisited: The Raisin Cycle at Center Stage” (9 p.m. Friday, TPT, Ch. 2), a documentary that looks at how Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking play inspired “Clybourne Park” and “Beneatha’s Place.”
This weekend’s chief matchup is between “The Walking Dead” (8 p.m. Sunday, AMC) and the Walking Dead known as the Minnesota Vikings on “Sunday Night Football” (7:20 p.m. Sunday, KARE, Ch. 11). Both will almost certainly end in tragedy.
