Default The Strain

Anyone watch the premeire last night? New vampire horror drama show based on the comics. Some parts were pretty frightening. In this one the vampires are more biological/disease based, not supernatural. So its more zombie like vampires.

I watched it. Kind of reminded me of the movie The Faculty. I will be tuning in.

A bit of clarification, it is not based on the comics, it is adapted from the same trilogy of books that the comics are. The books were released in 2009, 2010, and 2011, and production didn't begin on the comics until late 2011, after the entire series was complete. The first two have already been adapted into comics, while work begins on adapting The Night Eternal (the final book) next month. It was originally intended to be a TV series, but Guillermo del Toro couldn't find a buyer until after the runaway success of the books he co-wrote with Chuck Hogan.

All that said I missed it, but will be checking it out--I thoroughly enjoyed both The Strain and The Fall, have not yet read The Night Eternal.

Thanks! I'll give that a try today. I only use Time Warner Cable for internet, but hopefully they'll let me watch ^_^

The 3rd ep is called "Gone Smooth" youll just have to watch the episode to understand what that means. They plan this show to be a 5 year series with an ultimate conclusion
