‘The Strain’, Ep. 1.02, “The Box” disappoints with dull clichés

22 July 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Strain, Season 1, Episode 2, “The Box”

Written by David Weddle and Bradley Thompson

Directed by David Semel

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on FX

Last week, I said that The Strain would live or die based on how it balances the silliness with the seriousness. This week, it gave us no indication which direction it will be going in, instead giving us an incredibly boring episode of clichés, which is very disappointing.

“The Box” is an episode of our protagonists moving far slower than the audience, dulling the momentum almost entirely. We spend a little more time with our ensemble, including Gus and his stereotypical Hispanic family, in a scene full of clunky dialogue establishing backstory and characterization for people that are either unimportant or uninteresting. Gabriel, the rock star, hangs out with some naked women because he’s a rock star, and becomes the first of the plane’s »

The Strain episode 2 review: The Box

22 July 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Strain still isn't doing much for Billy in week two. Here's his review of The Box...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

1.2 The Box

First, I must apologise for the first review of this show, where I failed to grasp that the cheesiness at points it was fully intentional. Perhaps in my defence, it wasn’t consistently so, and I’ve not read the source material which I’m told is more patently B-Movie. With that in mind I approached the second helping of The Strain with a more open perspective, yet didn’t find it any more enjoyable.

Why? Because whatever story they’ve got to tell about modern day vampires, they’re not exactly rushing to present it. To say that The Box progressed at a glacial pace suggests it moved much more briskly than it actually did.

The opening sequence introduced a new character, Vasiliy Fet, who »

The Strain Recap: The Master’s Degree

20 July 2014 8:13 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last week’s Strain pilot episode, “Night Zero,” straddled a fine line between sub-genre excess and elegant thematic prose. If its ensuing chapter, “The Box,” is a reasonable barometer for where the balance might tilt, then things are going to get very, very silly. Just when you thought we’d met all the players, “Box” opens up on Vasiliy Fet (Kevin Durand), a badass pest-control man who occupies a vast warehouse loft in Red Hook. His distaste for vermin and zeal for eradicating unwelcome critters suggests some particularly icky trauma buried deep in his personal history. In the present, that predilection for stomping out multi-legged infection carriers means bad news for the owner of a swank Manhattan restaurant. Vasiliy can’t be bought like some rookie exterminator. A free meal won’t sate his appetite for fumigation. And boy, does he know his way around an Led flashlight. Likewise, Holocaust-surviving »

The Strain Review: “The Box” (Season 1, Episode 2)

20 July 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not that much happens in “The Box,” but that doesn’t mean it isn’t another great episode of The Strain. After the show’s fantastic premiere last week, I had wondered how Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan planned to space out their story, and this second episode establishes a quick pace and deliciously eerie style that should serve The Strain very well throughout the rest of its first season. And gore-hounds will surely be satisfied with “The Box,” given the gross-out scene it concludes with.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. At the end of “Night Zero,” Eph and Nora were scratching their heads over the disappearance of the titular box, a massive coffin covered in mysterious, satanic scrawlings, and by the end of this episode, it has changed hands from gang-banger Gus Elizalde to the wax-skinned vampire Eichhorst and mysterious businessman Eldritch Palmer.

18 July 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

FX just premiered The Strain last Sunday and unfortunately I haven’t gotten a chance to check it out yet.  But I hear the series, based on the books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, is one of the more unrelenting takes on vampirism in TV history (and that it’s quite fun as well).  If you’re already a fan of the show, and if you’re going to be at the San Diego Comic-Con next week, then there’s an exclusive event you won’t want to miss. The Strain (check out our recap) tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather,” the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City.  Goodweather 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, »
