So, when do they kill Sardu?

 Quiz: how many Death Stars does it take to change a light bulb?

 Yeah! We need the reviews on schedule, so I can post spoilers on the comments!

The 'hacker chick' was the one who caused the internet and phone lines crashdown. She was hired by Eldritch Palmer and Eichorst a few episodes ago. Thus they block any spread of information regarding the strigoi, allowing them to attack the city.

One thing I hate about this show is how they keep portraying women as stupid. Eph's colleague rocks in the comic, while here on the TV show she's always whining and complaining. They're doing a disservice to us women to depict us like that!

When I saw 'The Creature' appear out of nowhere with his signature crossbow last week, I jumped on my bed and shouted "Yay! Finally!" These strange hooded characters... you really don't know who/what they are? C'mon, you're not that dumb! You thought Sardu was the only 'Master' out there? Think twice! It's "Walking Dead" meets "Twilight"! High Noon down Strigoy Alley! The Good Strigoi, the Bad Strigoi, and the ugly old Jew! This show rocks harder than the comic!!!

Amityville (2015) Trailer (Article) - 8/24/2014 5:37:32 AM

They should make an Amityville version about a family that pretends to live in a haunted house and then becomes rich selling stupid books.

 Yes, in the comic Elizalde gets arrested with Setrakian, that's how they meet each other and then they connect later on. In the show, they connect because Elizalde's brother steels the clock from Setrakian and Elizalde gives it back. Still waiting to see how the show is going to connect the team members, Fet and Elizalde are still on their own.

They seem to be doing it right. They are following the comic but, at the same time, creating their own scenes and threads. Some of the best lines were kept, (Now you show up!).

Of course, what works in a comic doesn't work in a tv show. (In the comic, Eph's escape from the FBI and Felix's infection would be somewhat unbelievable for a TV show.) And if they keep playing it right, the Master will only appear on the last episode, the final showdown (at least, that's what's on IMDB). Next episode seems to be another set of flash backs, and the next one is Assault on Precinct 13 in strigoi mode.

And they seem to have introduced another main character from the comic, although he plays a minor part in this episode. But I want to see him punching strigoi's in the face when hell breaks loose! Now, will Fet, Gus, and the nigerian dudes from the chop shop, join the team please?

And will they bring the other characters from the comic as well (I am talking about the stranger ones, those who read the comic know who I am talking about)? Because they haven't yet explained the Master's origin and it's relation to Setrakian. And why this is all happening now. And why four were kept alive...

Maybe the best episode so far, but the show will only heat up when the crap hits the fan and the hunt begins next episode! There are seven episodes to go, according to IMDB, and they seem to be following the first comic book. Which means the second will be saved for a second season. In the mean time, I am waiting for the third book to come out.

They're remaking Source Code? Kewl!
