‘The Strain:’ Redfern Rises

8 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of the The Strain season 1, episode 3. There will be Spoilers.]

-

The Strain started strong with “Night Zero,” slowed a bit during “The Box,” but began building characters and storylines in the process, and now “Gone Smoother” continues that progression. It still doesn’t have the momentum of the first episode, but the pace is picking up and we’re getting some solid plot and character development along with it.

First off, hooray for Mia Maestro finally getting something to do! “Gone Smoother” merely introduces a connection between Nora and Abraham Setrakian, but at least it finally pulls her out of Ephraim’s shadow and proves she’s got some ideas of her own as well as the gall to act on ...

Guillermo del Toro brings 'The Strain' to Comic-Con: Live-Blog

14 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After live-blogs for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Following," it's time for the final Hall H panel of Comic-Con 2014. It's Guillermo del Toro and company taking the stage for FX's "The Strain," which will be preceded by a screening on Sunday (July 27) night's episode, which was one of my favorites so far, featuring some jaw-droopingly gross moments, as well as a hilarious sequence for Corey Stoll's wig. Apparently this is the first TV show ever to be paneled in Hall H during its first season. Who knew? Click through for the highlights... 2:37 p.m. Panel time! Carlton Cuse, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan are introducing our panelists: Ben Hyland, Jack Kesey, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Kevin Durand, Sean Astin (or "The adorable, cuddly Sean Astin," as Guillermo introduces him),  David Bradley ("He's open for wedding planning if you need anything," del Toro jokes), Mia Maestro and Corey Stoll. »

Exclusive: Del Toro, Stoll & Maestro Talk The Strain, Its Creatures & Future of the Series

22 July 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

This week was FX’s day of presentations to the Television Critics Association. With The Strain two weeks on the air, the entire cast of the show sat on a panel for critics, and I landed some one on ones with the big guns for Shock Till You Drop. Of course, the biggest gun is creator Guillermo del Toro - co-author of the book with Chuck Hogan and director of the pilot episode - who touches on the "vampire biology" of the series, Pacific Rim 2 and Crimson Peak. The Strain begins when a plane lands on the tarmac with seemingly every passenger dead. A few wake up and Cdc Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) can’t keep them under quarantine. However, the infection continues to change them and if you haven’t read the book yet, here’s an early spoiler warning: I ask del Toro about what happens »

The Strain – Episode 1 Review

22 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of The Strain

A Boeing 767 flying out of Berlin lands at JFK and goes dark. Its fuselage is cold. Every window blind is drawn except one and the passengers are silent. Someone calls in Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) from the Cdc (Centre for Disease Control) to investigate. Together with Jim Kent (Sean Astin) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) he begins ruling out viral possibilities before this new contagion reaches Manhattan.

Meanwhile Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), an old Armenian pawnbroker, watches from his Harlem bolthole as media interest turns to increasing concern. Something without conscience is intent on eradicating the population, which will require more than the efforts of one old man and a team of experts to quash. Elsewhere ailing billionaire Eldrich Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) awaits the arrival of a visitor. For both men know there will be no second chances.

The Strain episode 1 review: Night Zero

14 July 2014 11:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Billy finds fresh meat on the gothic horror table with The Strain, from the creative mind of Guillermo del Toro and friends...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Night Zero

In terms of having a pedigree, The Strain ticks all the critical boxes, and then some. I’m a huge fan of the work of Guillermo del Toro and this show is based on a series of novels that he and Chuck Hogan wrote. He also directs the opening episode, and Chuck Hogan also helped co-write it. What could possibly go wrong?

I was somewhat concerned that in the first couple of minutes this show managed to deliver at least two Wtf moments. But before I get to them, it’s worth noting that the arrival of an aircraft travelling from Germany to the USA where everyone is dead isn’t the most original opening for a TV series. Because that »

The Strain: The 6 Most Horrifying Things From the Series Premiere

14 July 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

FX premiered The Strain this week, its terrifying new show from creator Guillermo del Toro, and one thing is certain: it is not for the faint of heart. The show follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), an epidemiologist who finds himself at the center of an outbreak - only this is no ordinary outbreak. When a plane full of dead passengers lands at New York's Kennedy International Airport, Ephraim fights to be on the case, assuming the cause of death must be some new strain of ebola or any other, you know, "normal" virus. Nope! It's a vampire virus and a variety that looks closer to the zombies of The Walking Dead than the sexy night walkers of The Vampire Diaries. The premiere sags in parts, but it definitely has its gruesome moments. Let's dive in! The dead plane. The opening sequence itself isn't too scary, but the aftermath is. »

'The Strain' Recap: A Vampire Virus Lands In NYC

13 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Strain, the TV adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s vampire book, opened its premiere with a voiceover about hunger and its ability or inability to be satiated.

'The Strain' Recap

It’s February 8 at 8 p.m. and pilots are preparing to land a commercial airplane. A flight attendant in the back of the plane tells one of the flight attendants that something is on board that shouldn't be. They open the cargo hatch, close it, and whatever is inside bursts out and attacks. In a command center, they see the plane going dark and into a blind spot. They go outside to find the plane parked, all the window shades shut except for one.

In Astoria, Queens, New York City, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) with the Cdc arrives at a custody meeting with his estranged wife Kelly (Natalie Brown). He doesn’t want his marriage to end. »
