Been waiting for this show for a while
I read all three excellent books in The Strain trilogy and I’ve been waiting for this series to debut for a while. I’m very pleased with the quality of their production and the calibre of actors and writers they’ve assembled. There are certainly some minor changes from the original books for TV pacing and flow but the entire story is largely untouched and very faithful. Vampires are gross and scary again (not sparkly.) Thanks, FX, for getting this right.
By all means pay for this show so you can watch some more ads, because it has ads in it. Worth the price for the ads alone. I love ads. I wish I could pay to watch ads all day long.
Don't waste your money! The plot is poorly written and the acting is simply pathetic...
