This new hour-long series is generously indebted to the movie Interview with a Vampire, from the opening shot of the Golden Gate Bridge to the profile of chief bloodsucker Mark Frankel, who has the same nose as Tom Cruise. Even so, Kindred, about gang warfare among wealthy West Coast clans of the un-dead, is fun, swanky nonsense. As surely as fang marks indicate a vampire, that description should tell you the show comes from the gold-plated crypt of Aaron Spelling.
