My husband and I caught the first 5 episodes. We were blown away. The special effects and the story line were great. Did not know about the books. We were just looking for something different and we found it.
The books were good. I waited until they all came out before reading them all. They read like they were meant to be made into a movie, mini-series or TV show. That's not a complaint, Stephen King can read like that sometimes, just an observation.
They are, in order, The Strain, The Fall, & Night Eternal. Even those titles are a bit of a spoiler for the series but it's not like you can't find out the titles easily. I'd pass them on to you but I already donated mine to the elementary school last year for their book sale.
So far they're being faithful more or less.
It's just so nice to see ridiculously scary vampires again & on a basic cable channel to boot!! Del Toro makes great creatures & he has not failed us with this show. Even if you hate the show you gotta love the creatures. They also actually use the word "vampire" too which is a nice change.
Heard this got renewed for a second season & that Del Toro wants it to go 5 seasons. Be great if we can get more of the great character development & action from the books. Still enjoying it in all its campy goodness, & agree RCIAG, good to see some real horror on TV.
I'd forgotten about this bit, a commenter at EW reminded me of this & it's a spoiler so I'll give some room here:
The Hunters that show up and kill Joan are making a much earlier appearance then they do in the book. They are the progeny of the other six masters and led by Mr. Quinlan, a half-human hybrid of the Master and outside his control. Mr. Quinlan is 2000 years old and dedicated to killing his father.
I've been binging on the Simpsons marathon & then I watched The Strain & had some seriously effed up dreams. I should know better, binge watching always does that to me. Doesn't matter if it's Orange Is the New Black or The Simpsons, they all get into my subconscious in the end.
Not sure why, but I have had alot more people ask me why I dont do a "Big Christmas display" My answer is always the same, I'm a fair weather person!🤣😂 I refuse to decorate when I cant feel my fingers or toes!!! I mean it's already colder than average for October!! Its been dipping down to 30 at...

I recently found a female Carolina anole clinging to the side of a bale of paper at work. They are not native to this area and since the weather has been quickly getting colder I brought her home for my son to keep as a pet. She would not survive our winters here in Virginia as it stays cold for...
