I wasn't sure if I could qualify this as martial arts entertainment, but...

Who watches Castlevania on Netflix? I found the finale very satisfying.

I've seen it on there, and was a fan of the video games as a kid, but I haven't pulled the trigger on watching this. Did you find it enjoyable, Patrick?

I just finished catching up on it. I thought it was really fun. If you liked the games as a kid, then you'll like this.

Yeah, the series finale was very satisfying. When they all came back together for the final fight... great payoff moment. Glad Trevor lived, though that surprised me.

Hmm, I did enjoy the games as a kid. I'll have to look into it. I actually have two of the three games downloaded on the Wii U.

This one is based on Castlevania 3, so it has Trevor and Sypha, so if you like that one (it's my favorite of the NES era) then it's perfect.

That was my favorite of the series, but I was never able to beat it. I'll need to start playing it again.

I don't recall the timeline, though. Was Trevor before or after Simon?

In the timeline Trevor comes before Simon. Trevor was the second to fight Dracula in Castlevania 3, with Simon being the 4th after Christopher, who stared in the Gameboy games.

I missed the entire Gameboy lineup.
