The Strain: Loved Ones Review (Article) - 9/17/2014 5:42:23 AM

read all 3 books over the past 3 weeks, the pacing of the show in the beginning seemed fine to me at first, but now i see how it was slow to some.

zach is very much the same kid from the books, and to the comment about him being tougher, that was only in the "two years later" section of the story, and only with two or three specific individuals as a reference point. (Eph in the diner on the lake, and the camp superintendant when he sees zach for the first time).

this episode in particular was well done and did an amazing job, in my opinion, showing how the vampire 'virus' corrupts those things we cherish most (the desire to seek out and turn loved ones), as well as the journey of change for those who will survive (Eph with Kelly's friend/son, how he has to close his eyes and turn away now, but by the end of the story and his actions then, how far he had to come).

Doctor Who: Robot Of Sherwood Review (Article) - 9/8/2014 8:06:26 AM

so....no strain review this week because of dr-whats-his-name?

The Strain: Creatures of the Night Review (Article) - 9/4/2014 6:49:38 AM

i will say, that in the books they refer to them as riots, and the news is controlled by Palmer, so he controls what they say about vampires vs riots.

everybody around knows not to go out at night, but they just say that some people have gone crazy as a result of the "occulation". so, the media is reporting on it, but not the true severity due to Palmer's influence and control.

This review REFERENCES last week's show. Why not just put it up *late* if you still saw it? are you only Allowed 1/week?

Are you S.H.I.E.L.D. or HYDRA material? (Article) - 8/21/2014 7:55:47 AM

Hydra has eye-care and dental.

But i would opt out of the eye-care if given the choice

The Strain: Occultation Review (Article) - 8/19/2014 8:48:40 AM

@Lloyd: im happy enough just able to post again...quoting seems so far removed from the equation that its honestly a sad state

The Strain: Occultation Review (Article) - 8/19/2014 6:04:57 AM

as someone who started reading the books Because of the show, each episode has had WOW moments for me.

i'm now about 30% of the way through the first book (actually just finished the occulation bit in the book) and while the book is leaps and bounds ahead in some areas, don't let your knowledge of future events and pacing of a tv show detract that for many, it is delivering the goods each week.

Robin Williams has Passed (Article) - 8/13/2014 5:22:55 AM

My all-time favorite funny-man and a truly legendary performer.

His greatest performance was the face his displayed to the public during his down cycles.

Rest in Peace - you deserve it.
