Steampunk inspiration and resources

Steampunk in the Main Stream

I have been seeing Steampunk pop up lately on mainstream networks like ABC and CBS. For instance, the clip above is from the show Castle starring the oh so talented Nathan Fillion (who first came to my attention in Joss Whedon’s space western Firefly) checking out a Steampunk bar in NYC. (Check out this article for more info: http://www.alterna-tv.com/castle/steampunk.htm)

I also found out right after I wrote my Time Machine post that The Big Bang Theory has an episode where they get a hold of a replica of the movie prop.

But, I think the best new Steampunk TV is NBC’s Dracula. In this “punked” version of Bram Stoker’s classic novel the count we all know and love (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is posing as an American entrepreneur in Victorian England. His business? Taking out a secret society of wealthy lords through the miracle of scientific innovation and of course, biting people and smoldering. Episode 3 airs tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
