I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one, Chris. Last week's episode ("Sťance") was a strong one, and so was this week's about Frankenstein's monster (Proteus/Caliban). The liberties they're taking with the various stories aren't random ones. They're all connected. Dracula hasn't been introduced yet, although it's obvious he's the one who took the girl the others are searching for. Dorian Gray's part in the story hasn't been made clear yet, but it will be. I think it's all very ingenious.
