The Strain by Guillermo del Toro


  • Havnt read the books but will watch it when FX screen it this side of the pond. Ive avoided reviews and what not as I want to make my own mind up.

  • I read but lost interest in the original material, but decided to give the show a viewing.

    I thought it was solid, nice blend of mystery, suspense, horror and outright gore.

    Based on the first episode, it may not be a must see, but it's definitely one to keep an eye on.

  • just watched the first episode...looks intriguing at least..dont know the books..

    Edit: Just watched up to episode 6..will definitely keep watching. Story is strong, acting is good. violent....blood, etc....

  • Been ok so far, not great though. Doesn't strike me as being anything particularly original at the moment. And that Master dude from the coffin is simply a bigger, slightly more solid version of the Dementors from Harry Potter. Moves exactly like them anyway.
