Well, after watching the series premiere of The Strain, it’s safe to say that we won’t be short on gore.
Man, all that makes Corey Stoll’s hair look pretty tame in comparison.
I just want to say that the one thing I do hate about FX is the time they air shows. Just can’t bring myself to stay up till midnight on a Sunday to watch them.
Yeah, I forgot it was on and then I saw the 10pm – 11:40pm on a Sunday. Madness! Oh wait, I don’t have kids! (*made popcorn and threw it away because*).
are we later going to find out that this chode is in on it and thats the only way to stay alive?
It replaced his alcohol addiction…kinda whatever.
Maybe its milk plus.
This show was the most generic collection of tropes and cliches I have seen in awhile.
Then you’re clearly not watching Halt and Catch Fire.
Angst-riddled computer programmer fuels their programming sessions with caffeine and alternative loud music. That is totally new bro.
200+ people died from a mysterious illness the CDC is investigating in the biggest city in the US. Yeah, we just need one coroner all alone to handle this.
I feel like this show can’t possibly live up to those ads they were leaning on earlier. Although, I suppose I realized that as soon as I found out it was going for the twilight light thing. Meh. I’ll probably still Netflix it four years from now.
They sure covered alot of ground in the pilot. Which surprised me, but it made sense, considering you have like only 1 or 2 episodes to capture a large portion of your audience…I liked it.
Well it was an a hour and a half long.
That dude got Red Viper’d
Anyway, I am wondering how the hell an doctor didnt notice the neck incisions that the coroner did.
I was flipping back and forth between this and the worst episode of Naked and Afraid last night… I wish I would have just stuck with this because the woman on N&A was just about the cuntiest cunt toe ever cunt… Anyway my take away from the moments I saw (namely .gif 2 and 3 above) lead me to believe this is a show better off tor-rented
Got a Ryan Reynolds vibe from the lead. What a douche.
The character is a douche in the books too, so at least it fit the source material. He doesn’t get his act together for quite a while.
I watched….it was lame. It was just corny as hell…bad acting all over the place. The main guy is a totally unbelievable douche bag named “eff”.
They basically took a little from every monster movie…added in some horrible dialogue and shitty acting..and spit it back out. For those that didn’t watch, Dracula has been brought to NYC, and he turns people into zombies. There is some secret evil society that was trying to bring him back (all rich foreigners) ….but luckily Van Helsing has come away from his pawn shop to hunt down the zombies and Dracula.
Fucking lame as hell.
Whew….aren’t we just full of sunshine and rainbows today.
Yea thats fine. I won’t watch it again that’s for sure. I’m not sure why your so up in arms about this terrible show. What about my post is incorrect?
If you like this garbage then more power to you. I expected something half decent and was disappointed. It will be off the air soon.
Didn’t expect it to be perfect. But I also didnt expect it to be laughably bad. It was one of the dumbest, laugh out loud retarded shows Ive seen in a long while. For a show thats trying to shock people with gore and a “horror” vibe…it was just silly. It was awful.
Im not sure if it was a badly done or it is a wonderfully done B Movie/show.
It’s the pilot. So I’d expect some things to be fleshed out later to give it greater depth. Honestly, I’m surprised there isn’t some Uproxx list of the pilot episodes that got the show right from the start.
That said, it is also a show about vampires and the end of the world. It’s B Movie fest time.
For now I’m going with wonderfully done B movie. I liked it for what it was. Most Vampire stories are pretty stupid.
If anything, this reminds me that when I get older I need to carry a sword cane.
Why no recap? I would love to rip on this one a bit even though I liked it.
The opening where the two go under the plane was one of the worst written things I can remember, but it got better after that.
That had to be intentionally bad.
it gets 10 points for when the one dude says puto !!!
I like it ! the old guy reminds me of the German guy from Monster Squad.
Scary German Guy!
Is it too much to ask for a ‘Wolf Man has nards’ line in this show?
I liked it. It seemed like a classic Guillermo movie: cheesy fun with scares. I think that;s what he was going for.
Except the book is deadly serious, so not sure if it will translate well…
Should get better when they start going boss mode on vamps. Setrakian better be yelling his “My blade sings of silver, strigoi!”
I liked the premiere a lot. Nobody mentioned that “Patchy” from lost was the guy who got his head smashed in?
