The Strain on FX

Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

The girl from the Indian restaurant got shipped off last episode. Who else? The political woman demanding protection money? She wasn't in this episode. And ol' ugly vamp mom. That's it.


Especially strange since (book spoilers) Nora is one of the few characters who actually survives the entire series of books.

I thought it was funny they brought in the other kid because they wanted an actor with more range yet every scene he was in was just painful to watch:P

But he LOVES the show Big Brother, and premixed margaritas in foil packs.

I hope that's not the reason they brought the new kid in. Jake Lloyd was a better actor.

This show keeps me coming back every week, so damn enjoyable and I thought the finale was solid.

I hate Zach so much. He is such a little bitch and probably the dumbest kid in the world.

"Let me see your face"! For what drymounting purpose does that matter. You know she has been turned and is now a monster and you just watched her kill Nora who was trying to protect you. Hope they kill off this kid because he makes this show unbearable at times.

I think it's like "okay, I guess I can live with that."

I gave up a few episodes into season two. Is it worth it to just to watch the season finale?


God no. Worst drymounting show ever. Are the people that like this show the same people that pick apart every Walking Dead episode? If so, you're all hypocrites that have terrible taste in TV.

I can't believe I watched 2 seasons of this.

Yes, but I've also turned full crotchety old man. Get off my lawn!

I would have kept watching if Zack would have gone, "Show me your face," and then stabbed her in the temple (while miraculously not getting any worms on himself, as is the norm in this disjointed, nonsensical show).

Was hoping he'd get turned in the finale. Now there's something to look forward to next season.

The Walking Dead has higher production values, better acting, and I guess is more realistic given the rules established for its world, but...it's boring as drymount. As dumb as The Strain can be, it's just infinitely more entertaining.

The Strain is more on par with Znation than Walking Dead, you just say F-it and go with it

I find The Strain to be quite boring, much more boring than the second half of the most recent season TWD or FTWD.

I'll stop trolling/hating now. I'm officially out.
