  • Why doesn't Corey Stoll leave the hairpiece on permanently?

    9.0
    I never heard of or saw Corey Stoll before watching The Strain. Because of that, I thought that was his natural hair. A few months passed and there was a pic of him in the paper I passed right over until my friend told me who it was. I couldn't believe it! I recently watched some of The Strain's first season to get ready for the second and, to me, he looks so much better with that hair. I wonder why he doesn't wear it (or get his own) permanently? Imo, he's not the greatest looking actor but the hair definitely helps for him plus makes him look much younger. Aside from that, I love the show, definitely think it's horror filled and am sick of people writing that the Master isn't scary enough. They don't have a movie budget. If I saw a person I knew open their mouth and have some gross looking thing trying to bite me, I think I'd be freaked out enough. I think the show definitely did a good job in that department! Can't wait til July 12th! (sorry if it sounds like I'm rambling)moreless

    Really ? The holocaust in a series that is meant to be a horror series and does a bad job trying it !

    Nothing new on this show and bad acting to top the whole thing....................

    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.
