YMMV: Kindred: The Embraced
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Julian proved to be a far more popular character over Frank with viewers and critics alike. One of the major changes that were planned for Season 2 was having Frank written out and Julian made the lead. It is also the reason why Showtime didn't simply recast the character or write in a new one when Mark Frankel died.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Mark Frankel, the man whose untimely death prevented the show from making a Channel Hop to Showtime, played a member of the living dead on the show.
  • The Scrappy: Frank. One critic remarked that his character felt like a transplant from a bad cop movie. Howell's less-than-stellar acting didn't help much either. As mentioned above, plans for the scraped 2nd season largely involved removing him and making Julian the lead.
  • Rule-Abiding Rebel: Cash, and most of the Gangrel clan that appear in the series. Mainly due to the fact, they have to keep the masquerade solely out of self-preservation. Then out of loyalty to the Sire, ally themselves with Luna's group.
