  • Disappointing

    5.0
    I tried to watch the the Strain, but.. it's boring! I'm at episode 5 right now but it's not getting any better. The main reason is the bad acting! Especially Sean Astin and Mia Maestro are disappointing. The actors don't have chemistry and sometimes it's painful to watch them act. I had high hopes for the Strain, but unfortunately it's a no go for me.

    I love del Toro (Pans Labyrinth was a spectacular movie) and so far I am liking this show. I teach in school and I have students hooked on this show. Hopefully, it will not turn into a cheesy Hollywood soap opera, Del Toro is too god to let this show go down the toilet.

    Ive seen shows before where you get a scene here and there where someone does the most unlikely thing given the situation they are in. And you know its done for continuing the storyline. But so far this show has almost every character doing, saying, behaving with 0% common sense. It gets more annoying to watch as the episodes go on....... 6 so far.... see how this pans out in the next few.moreless
