The Strain (new show on FX)

Anyone check it out last night? Pretty good. When I first saw a trailer on tv I thought it was for a movie.

I thought it was pretty awful, and I watched the episode back to back because I couldn't figure out wtf was going on.

I had no idea what the show was about going in. I didn't read up on it or watch any of the previews, so I went in cold. Had no clue it was a vampire thing, just read that now.

I'll give it another week, see if it grabs me.

The jury is still out. I'll watch it and see where it goes. The pilot was okay, but I can't say that it hooked me like some other shows (..Suits, Chicago PD/Fire, etc.). 'Intelligence' is another one where the plotline was loosely interesting, but it didn't build enough steam to get renewed. I feel like 'The Strain' will likely follow suit.

I've read all three books a long time ago.

It's not really about Nazis, it just happens that one of the characters was a Nazi. And it's vampires and vampire-zombies.

I loved the books, and I think that FX **can** do a good series. I thought the pilot was ok though. Once it picks up, it really gets good though.

I'll watch a few more episodes, but like others have said, the pilot didn't exactly draw me in.

First episode was god-awful, not deserving to be on FX at a prime time-slot. Last 2 were pretty good, I'll keep watching.

Looks good so far but there's a lot of scenes that could have been taken out. We don't need to know that much detail about each persons lifestyle. Just show us some gore and vampire stuff.

The next episode looks like it will be better since they finally understand what's going on.

Totally agree. Completely remove that crap about the main character and his kid that he never sees.
