    I've just starting watching The Strain. I'm sure some of you have already seen it. It's described as a
    "thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself."

    It seems weirdly apropos our current reality, but diversionary at the same time.

    Any comments on the show?

    Very Good TV show! It takes a few episodes to get going, but OMG. This show is so good and criminally underrated. The premise of the show is unique enough, not quiet vampire, not quiet mass infection, and not quiet zombies. It's a bit of all of it and a slow decline of humanity and eventual apocalypse holds large appeal. The constant reference to the final solution during the Nazi reign is interesting and scary as hell. But that bloody kid.......oh my gosh. He literally costs thousands of lives and just keeps getting spoiled and behaving like a brat! Nonetheless, I love the show, the creativity, the characters, and the effects. It's a solid show that deserves its place in the vampire lore.

    Solid 8/10
