Looks interesting ...

Saw about this and yes looks pretty nice indeed. And it's by GOD Del Toro, should be badass. big_smile

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Love the book series. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Did anyone watch the premiere? I really enjoyed it!

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Yep, saw it.  I thought it was merely okay, but that it has potential.  Del Torro's fingerprints are definitely all over it, though, and that works in its favor.  I'll reserve judgment until I've seen a couple more episodes.

I can say, though, that I'm pissed that they wasted Andrew Divoff.  That guy's been around a long time and is a quality character actor.  You don't kill him off in your first episode!

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

I was shocked they did that!

I missed parts of the episode because my parents were visiting, but I did enjoy the episode. My parents left today (after THREE weeks!!!) so next time it's on I can watch it without interruption.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

A millions of thumbs up.
Damn that Rocked.

But I liked that kill. Surprised me too so that's why I loved it. I love when they surprise me. Yeah I'm sick I know. lol

I like it.  Wasn't surprised by the ultra-kill 'cause The Wil Wheaton Show previewed it a few weeks ago.  Still cool, though.

Has some promise; I hope they can pull off some crazy-neat stuff.  Hey, maybe a vampire monkey(s)?  Heh heh.

Any kind of animal Vampire would rock. But wait maybe not frogs though. lol

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Vampire Frogs would be as riveting as Frogs.

^ Scary stuff there lol

I find it amazing the stuff they can get away with on cable these days, I have grown accustomed to HBO shows being over the top with stuff, but this is cable pretty crazy.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

I wasn't overly impressed with the first episode, but I totally tuned out of the second one.  Looks like this one's going to be a pass for me. hmm

Got it down earlier so I'll watch it tonight...

Awesome. Think I'm gonna build up a few episodes on the PVR before starting the series. Hopin for the best, love Vampires.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Who doesn't???

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Abraham Van Helsing?

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

MWAHAHAHA Man... Yes. lol

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Lon, you always bail early. Tsk, tsk.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Nah, I think I have this one pegged early on.  There will be a lot of effects, a lot of melodrama, but aside from some interesting creature design, it's not going to be anything we haven't seen before.  I feel they're already over-relying on what are actually Del Torro's strengths (brilliant design and cinematography) but after a few weeks, even that will get old. 

I just don't really see anything exceptional or groundbreaking coming out of it.  If something does, I'm sure you guys will tell me and take the time to rub it in appropriately lol  But I won't hold my breath.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Nothing ever gets old for me ever...

Yes I ROCK!!! lol

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

I'm enjoying this show.  I was flipping channels and became interested.  Some how I had never even seen a commercial for the show before so I didn't know what to expect.  I felt the same way about Andrew Divoff.  I think he's awesome and when I saw him I just assumed he would be a series regular.  I miss him already sad

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

Oh yes he is. big_smile

Damn I wish it'd go faster so I could download all the season at once. Hate waiting. But yeah it's like this for every damn show there is. lol

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

I've seen part of it no cable ahhhhhh. I guess I'll have to catch the series when the entire season is out on dvd. I hope it comes out on hulu. From what little I saw it looked great. I'm hooked I wish I could see as each episode comes out.

Re: The strain (new horror tv series on FX)

I really like the show so far, it's got me on board anyway. Bit disappointed about what happened to Wishmaster, though!
