Simple. This is the best adaptation of The Crow since the original film. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this show is. I really enjoyed it. It's a show with heart, raw emotion and powerful themes. Mark Dacascos is outstanding as The Crow/Eric Draven. I, like many other fans, did not have high hopes for Dacascos replacing Brandon Lee as Draven. What a tough job it must have been to fill in those shoes. However, he did a great job. He brings us a more human side to the character. As a life long fan of The Crow character, I can safely say that Mark Dacascos did the character proud and delivered a great performance that does Brandon Lee's original justice. I highly recommend this show to anybody that enjoyed the first Crow movie. This is not like the sequels, it is a great extension of the first Crow movie and a worthy addition to the Crow mythos.
