  • Scary and Convincing

    The overall story is fantastic but it never seems too unbelievable. The casting and production locations were done very well and the acting is great. The special effects are solid and it is just different enough from other shows to be interesting. I am looking forward to what is coming is season 2.
  • The Strain or Hell's Demon!!!

    One of the best TV shows!!!! Better than even Walking Dead. When will season 2 be on???? Really need to know!!!
  • Great show

    I really like it and can't wait for its return
  • Started off strong then went South

    I like Del Torro's work, so I was excited to see him do a series. It started off strong, good story, great build up then it went dead. The last 4 episodes were super boring. The kid it too cutesy pie for me & the fact that they can't find the mother tells me if they find a cure she will be saved. I hope not as that would not be realistic. I'm not a fan of the cast other than the villain German. He's is excellent. The rest are all average, not great acting. The ending was a let down.moreless
  • Spineless Idiot

    I really want to like this show... and I do already if it wasn't for the main character Eph.... He is a spineless idiot and I really can't stand him anymore. Matt should have had his head crushed with a baseball bat before the "virus" even hit. His sorry wife getting a boyfriend before a divorce had even started? And then he still wants to find her when there is a beautiful woman right there in front of his face!!!!???? I can't follow this guy.... He is ruining the show for me.

    Hah! just watched episode 10... poetic justice.moreless
