'The Strain' Recap: Vampires Vs. Lucha Libre

8/3/2015 6:35am EDT
The Strain
The Strain isn't becoming The Walking Dead, is it? Last week, the show was struck with a sudden case of Crappy Kid Syndrome. And this week, with "The Silver Angel," we're introduced to a new, nasty human element- bands of curfew-enforcing cops patrolling Red Hook at night, and beating the hell out of Fet for the sole crime of being a lovable rogue.

And for blowing up a subway station.

And for being out past curfew. But still.

It's very reminiscent of The Walking Dead's whole "zombies are scary, but it's humans that are the real evil" schtick. Here's a hint: humans are not the real enemy....

'The Strain' Might Be Suffering From Crappy Kid Syndrome

7/26/2015 10:55pm EDT
The Strain
What is it with crappy kids in the middle of an undead apocalypse? The Walking Dead has Carl. No one likes Carl. When people are legitimately hoping the little kid gets torn in half by ravenous zombies, you may have a serious problem.

It looks like The Strain is creeping towards that same problem. Three episodes in, and I would not mind at all if Zach got eaten by vampires. Or plowed into by a bus. Is that horrible to admit? Probably, but it's not a problem The Strain had last season. All we've seen of Zach so far is running off by himself, throwing tantrums and smashing his dad's lab equi...

'The Strain' Recap: Less Science, More Bloodsucking, Please!

The Strain
Hey, remember that awesome (also, gross) worm barf from last week's The Strain premiere? Well, there's none of that in our second episode, "By Any Means." Not a single barfed worm. It's kind of a shame.

I'm being serious (kinda)- because "BK, NY" introduced a heap of new neat concepts, and because "By Any Means" slams on the brakes and plays it very close to the vest with its newly-introduced vampire powers (worm barf, blind vampire schoolchildren), it can feel a little stale.

Setrakian (Old Setrakian, that is) does almost nothing the whole hour but flip through old books and yell surly o...

'The Strain' Is Back For Season 2!

7/12/2015 10:57pm EDT
The Strain
The absolute best moment of The Strain's second season premiere is its first five minutes. That's not a knock on the many minutes that follow (solid minutes, all of them), but that opening sequence? Totally killer.

We open on Grandma Setrakian and little Abe in early 1900s Romania. She's chopping onions, he's nursing a bowl of soup (why is she chopping onions when the soup's already made? Oh well) and recounting the story of Josef Sardu- the man who would one day become The Master.

That flashback's the only part of "BK, NY" directed by series creator Guillermo del Toro, and his stamp is a...

'The Strain' Series Premiere Recap: Cliches, Neglectful Fathers and Skull-Crunching Vampires

'The Strain' Series Premiere Recap: Cliches, Neglectful Fathers
Few television shows begin with a series premiere roughly the length of a feature film.

But then, most television shows don't reward you at the halfway mark with a nine foot tall cloaked creature with a giant worm for a tongue that drains a man of all his blood and then pulverizes his face with its bare hands.

That should keep butts planted on couches.

The Strain, for those who don't know, is the hideously ugly love child of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Del Toro, of course, is the eccentric Mexican filmmaker behind films of varying degrees of whimsy and horrific disembowelment- "P...
