  • making the show more real time?

    8.0
    Jazzalenko, this show is closer to real time than any scripted show on tv. Not even three days has passed since "Night Zero". Part one of the strain trilogy is a book covering about four days from start to finish. By the end of the season finale, less than a week will have passed.
  • Expected more from Del Toro.

    Its got some good shock horror ridiculous chronology ruins it. I mean... a plane full of vampires and the outbreak isn't in full swing until the 8th episode? Wouldn't that have happened as soon as everyone from the plane turned?

    It would have been smarter directing by making the show more real time...

    Its also boring that there is continuing resistance to acknowledge the outbreak by the officials despite the surmounting evidence.

    Oh and did someone already mention the acting???

    Yet... I keep for how much longer??moreless

    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.
  • Oh so good!!

    An interesting storytelling device turned out to be a wasted opportunity as the plot continued to inch along slowly.
