The Strain - FX Horror Show - Guillermo Del Toro

Postby darfox8 » Jul 15th, 2014 @ 6:42pm

Thought I'd make a thread out of this just because I plan on following the first few episodes of this show. See how it goes.

First episode was pretty cool, had some actors, and some stuff. One scene was pretty gory. Main chars seem mostly logical and interesting.

Vampires suck and zombies suck but so far I like that these thingies don't fall strictly into these categories. There's some lore to learn about the monsters and that's fun.

Why don't you just fucking watch American Horror Story instead? There's already 3 seasons of the best television in existence out there for you to watch...

I thought the first episode was pretty good. You can definitely tell that Del Toro directed this, it looks exactly like everything else he's made. The acting was pretty OK and the effects were good. I'll keep watching.

Where do you put the over/under for future episodes directed by Del Toro? I would put the over/under at 0.5. Remember how Martin Scorsese directed the pilot to Boardwalk Empire and then had nothing to do with the show from then on?

I see him being pretty involved with the series since it's based on a series of books that he wrote. According to imdb he's already directed 3 episodes.

Acting was cheesy as hell, nowhere as gorey as I expected.

I'll give it a few more.

Episode 2 was kind of meh. Nothing really bad about it but just predictable. Next episodes need to be funner or more interesting.

He's one of the main reasons I suspect this going to be a post-apocalypse show. He has no connection to anyone unless he takes up arms against the vampire menace and fights along side the other main characters.

I hope they break the pattern of saving the cool stuff for the end of the episodes.

This episode was better than last weeks.

I like the part where that guy's dick falls off. Was pretty obvious that was going to happen but it was still a WTF. They didn't show anything but whateves.

Exterminator guy continues to be funny/interesting.

I went back and re-read the comics between the previous episode and the newest one.
I kept thinking "wait, hasn't this happened already?"
Got annoying.

Been quiet about watching this. It is running a knife edge atm. It could go either fantastic or absolute garbage.
