I liked about 80% of DOTV, the sets, the costumes, most of the cast, the music, most of the script, but it was Crawford himself and turning Krolock into a clown because he didn't want to do another dark gothic character which fucked up the show and the whole feel of it.

The standing ovations at the end are completely irrelevant, as ever show I've been to that happens, even if it was utterly shit.

You need to go and see a European version of the show, you won't be sorry.
