'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....

Chris Brown's Baby Mama Wants His Visits With Daughter Royalty S
The mother of Chris Brown's lovechild says that she's not comfortable leaving her daughter alone with the singer.

Nia Guzman has filed documents asking that Brown only be allowed to see his daughter Royalty under supervision, according to TMZ.com, after Brown filed for joint custody.

Brown thinks Guzman's battle for custody is being waged in order to get more child support from him.
