The Strain

Anybody catch this new FX show. Pilot was last night. I thought it was largely excellent. Very creepy. Kind of reminded me a little bit Fringe though this being on FX it's obviously got more gore than Fringe. I could definitely see this becoming a favorite of mine. Off to a very good start.

Interested mostly based on del Toro's involvement, but my new rule is I don't start a new show unless it's already been picked up for a 2nd season (hence, why I'm avoiding The Leftovers).

Really creepy but very frustrating too, littered with cheesy dialogue and writing but still enjoyable. I haven't read the books but the whole idea of the virus and the vampires has me hooked already, I'll definitely stick with it.

So far three episodes in, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. It kind of reminds me of Lifeforce in a good way. Like Hammer horror meets the modern day. It is certainly one of the most unique vampire TV shows to hit the air.

Definitely getting better as it goes on, I'm looking forward to finding out more about that vampire hit squad that saved the lawyer's kids. And Vasiliy is hilarious, although the writing still falls short this has some great characters and acting.
