The Strain

First episode was kinda lengthy but it was good! I didn't feel board nor did I ever feel like it was dragging on. This could turn out to be a pretty good show! I'm certainly looking forward to the next episode.

One of the best pilots I've seen. In fact, it may have been too good. If the next few following episodes don't keep the same pace then i will definitely jump ship but i'm excited to see what comes next. Is it just me or was anyone else reminded of Aliens through out the first half of the show? lmao

I watched it, and I loved it.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: That thing from the coffin is pretty terrifying. I shat a brick when he killed that dude, crushed his head, and spazzed away down the hall while the dudes headless body twitched. ****ing brutal.

Congressman Russo and Walder Frey are also enjoyable, if not cliche, characters.

I'll keep up with this show.

Decent pilot. Liked how the plane plot line was straight up ripped from Dracula (the boat Demeter).

Of course, as is typical of Del Toro the characters are rather one dimensional and cliche.

Liked it at first since it seemed more suspense driven, but started to get somewhat generic horror towards the end. The vampire/vampirism being like a parasite is somewhat neat, but I got a 'Blade 2 / Reapers' vibe.

I'll keep watching, but I can see this getting lame very soon.

it was a good pilot. if it continues to follow the novel/comic series, it will likely stay good.

2 scenes.

Don't forget [SPOILER - highlight to read]: when the coroner's "patients" all got back up and mauled him.

^ we didn't really *see* them do anything, aside from pull him to the ground. the same certainly cannot be said about the other scene.

watched the pilot..

corey stoll's "hair" has to go...

felt the pilot ep was about 10-15 minutes to long..

the idea of vampirism being some sort of parasite is intriguing so will keep watching

thumb up

The pilot was good, but I doubt they'll be able to maintain the quality level with the coming episodes.

glad we got to hear sardu's voice. i'm really hoping they depict his story, along with setrakian's and eichhorst's, soon. they're very interesting.

Was not expecting this show to be so good. The story is really coming together. Early on i was skeptical as to how relevant some of the characters were going to be to the story but it's all being laced together quite well.
