Review for Season 2: The Strain very quickly turned to absolute garbage after the end of Season 1. It's mainly the writers' and the directors' fault. Most of the actors did the best they could with what they were given. And the special effects were still okay though not as good as Season 1. It's truly the story that took a turn for the worst. And it was impossible to care about anyone when their choices become so unbelievable. But the most grating part was the new actor for the boy, Zach, who the writers and directors chose to let play the most annoying character imaginable. I almost didn't finish this season. And I certainly won't be wasting my time on Season 3 or 4. Such a shame when Season 1 was such a promising beginning.

Do not listen to the bad reviews, this TV show makes you want to watch more. Great acting and great writing. Each series gets darker and you see more character development as the world descends into chaos. Guillermo Del Toro has made a fantastic TV series worth watching.

I'll start off by saying that this series compelled me to create an IMDb account.

There are many things that makes this show one of my all time favorites: 1) The intense, noir setting 2) No unwanted random scenes (Everything contributes to the plot) 3) Fast paced (the beginning is a little slow but it's very gripping) 4) Del Torro and his direction 5) Great animation and CGI 6) Very believable and rational story line 7) Dark atmosphere and background 8) Apocalypse and survival strategies

I'm a person that enjoys dark, intense setting with good story line and action I love shows like Death Note (anime), Lost, Game of thrones, the 100, etc

If you like any of the above mentioned shows or a thrilling, dark themed apocalyptic series, you're going to absolutely love this!

People who are asking so many questions right at the beginning of the show and are calling this stupid, are dumb AF. Literally everything is explained as the show goes on!

The first episode is captivating to say the least. It's a little slow after that, but it picks up pace real quick and from that point on wards it's one crazy ride with some kick-ass characters and a dark, apocalyptic atmosphere.

Season 1 is absolutely amazing. Blows of all the other vampire shows out of the water. Edge of your seat intensity from beginning to finish sprinkled with actual scary moments. Some of them Pet Sematary like.

Season 2 is ruined by pointless subplots and a very irritating kid. My god that kid! And the main story did not move forward one bit. Most of this season are fillers. Complete waste of time.

Season 3 started off with some intense actions, but cooled off very quickly, again, by pointless subplots. By now we're seeing flashbacks of supporting characters, completely irrelevant to the main story. And a couple of the main characters now have nothing to do, but the story is constantly being interrupted to give them screen time, so you can watch them sit around, drink alcohol, fluff about nothing, hook up...etc. Fillers, fillers, and more fillers.

This is where I give up. One can only tolerate so much fillers. Don't care what happens anymore.

Season 1 was pretty decent. The effects were very impressive and the premise made it intriguing enough to follow. Once Season 2 started I began to dislike it. The writing became so predictable and dull and the spectacle of the effects began to wear off. Everything after Season 3 became unwatchable. And the kid is the worst thing ever.

The display fuel consumption of cars is riddled with absurd characters. Everyone seems hugely assailant towards each other, dear companion or not. The characters are constantly jabbing at each other about anything conceivable. When creating the characters, I can imagine the hand team going through a schedule of "Ten most overused caricatures in fancy" and picking them all. You've your be in action-focused scientific man dad who ignores his parents and children. You've your stepdad watch movies online free who tries too impenetrable to be an awesome dad and comes out as tender of a dick thanks to that. You've an old man who at first seems aged, but is actually the most knowledgeable letter of them all. You've your Mexican gangster dude, who actually has quite high-reaching ethical standards. You've a 20-something year old thrashy-looking chick, who wears too much make-up, has a London tone and is, obviously, a hacking capacity admitting of, really, shutting you jizz down the whole Internet and confined apartment phone networks.Best site for go watch series online.
