Default Guillermo del Toro's The Strain (TV series)

After months of various teasers FX finally released a trailer featuring actual footage from their upcoming series based on Guillermo del Toro's The Strain. It's scheduled to premiere on July 13. I've been looking forward to considering the quality of some of their other shows.

This show should just do the first book, the second and third are just dumb plotwise and I love GDT. The Character are the best in the first one and they keep the vamps interesting as well.

Carlton Cuse Exhumes the Horror, and Science, of "The Strain's" Vampires.

Looks like the comic is based on the books as well.

I've been looking forward to this so I hope it was worth the wait.

For the most part I enjoyed the series premiere. It's nothing mind blowing but it was a solid start. The casting is pretty good but
Spoiler Below
a couple of the characters felt 2-dimensional especially the goth rock star guy. David Bradley was kind of badass as Professor Setrakian though. Visually everything looks pretty cool. The practical effects are solid, the CGI looks good and the gore is brutal. The scene where The Master drank that guy's blood then smashed his head in was pretty crazy.
I'm excited about the rest of the season.
