Well...the good news is that it doesn't look like the WORST thing I've ever seen.

It's probably won't be the worst Dracula adaptation, either. The one with Rutger Hauer and the BBC series were God awful.

BBC series 

We don't speak of that abomination ever. ugh, my wife and I will sit through pretty much anything - but that series had us agreeing to turn it off fairly quickly.

Since most of the recent adaptations have been very disappointing we are rather focusing on watching earlier folk horror films for vampires (and other creatures) we might have missed since those seem to have much more variety, some of which are BBS (Before Bram Stoker) such as Leptirica. Some ain't at all good, but what they lack in quality they make up for in actual unique ideas and exploration of folk tales less appreciated.

If by divide you mean we found it lazy because they lifted the entire thing from an anime we all watched two decades ago :D

Interesting, I had no idea. I will say I really enjoyed the first two episodes and did not care for the third act.

I couldn’t say, I had no idea. 

Pretty much the entire 'present' plot regarding the orginization (after Dracula is free from the waters) was done in the Hellsing anime series back in 2001 (though the story beats came before it in the manga in 1997) and they are not even that subtle about it.
