Background Information about Respondents:
How did you discover "Dracula: the Series"?
A full 56.45% of all respondents said that they discovered "Dracula: the Series" by just happening to catch it on television. A large proportion of recent respondents found it through TV listings or an advertisement (14.52%), while many earlier respondents found out about the show via Lucard's Home Page itself (6.45%). Other popular means of discovery were the "Forever Knight" mailing lists and having it recommended by a friend (3.23% each). The "Forever Knight" newsgroup and "don't remember" were each chosen by 1.61% of the respondents, and the remaining 12.90% discovered the series through other unspecified means.What is your interest in "Dracula: the Series"?
The most common response (24.59%) was still "I love it; it is my favourite TV show," followed closely by "I am very fond of it" (22.95%). "I am interested only in Lucard and/or Geordie Johnson" also still ranked high with 13.11% of the votes, but "I am interested only because Geraint Wyn Davies is in it," with which it was formerly tied, fell dramatically to 4.92%. "I used to watch it and like to reminisce," on the other hand, rose from the bottom of the rankings to fifth place (8.20%), right behind "other" (9.84%). "I am interested only because it's related to vampires" remained at 6.56%, and was joined by "It entertains me" (also at 6.56%). The remaining respondents said they are interested only because it's about Dracula, or that they've never seen it but it sounds interesting (1.64% each).When did you first see "Dracula: the Series"?
This is a fill-in-the-blank question, so there were quite a variety of responses. I've tried to group them logically. Respondents who saw "Dracula" back during the original airing (answers such as "1990," "1991," or "when it first aired") still edge out newer discoverers of the series, with 56.68% of answers. I also included one respondent who worked on the series in this category, although he may have actually seen the series before it aired. The Sci-Fi channel has introduced at least 23.34% of respondents to the show, as 11.67% named sometime during 1995 as their first time viewing the series, and 11.67% named sometime during 1996 or 1997. The earlier showing on Canadian YTV introduced 3.33% of respondents to the show. Other responses were 1992, 1993, 1992 or 1994, and 1994 (1.67% each). 3.33% hadn't seen the show at all, and 6.67% didn't remember when they first saw it.How many episodes have you seen?
All of them 33.87% Most of them 32.26% Only a few 17.74% About half 11.29% None 03.23% Only the Klaus episodes 01.61%
