Trivia

The name Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) originates from Philip K. Dick's 1965 novel "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch". In it, three body parts of the titular character had been artificially augmented or replaced. The series' character is also portrayed as having undergone surgical transplants. In addition, the author of the novel describes the augmentations as symbols for alienation, blurred reality and despair - states of mind that Eldrich Palmer seems to be familiar with. See more »

Goofs

The group, prior to their dissolution was based in Queens, which is on Long Island. As the series shows that New York City is under quarantine, yet no serious efforts are made to isolate the island boroughs (Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan) from either themselves or apparently much of the outside world. The group travels freely in a stolen vehicle between boroughs with no one apparently stopping nor searching them. See more »

Suspend all disbelief and be prepared for some horror character stupidity
9 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is actually a very entertaining show, I enjoyed it and I enjoy pretty much anything del Toro is involved with. If you're looking for a horror-centric TV show where the vampires are not very handsome or friendly then you should give this a spin. The first few episodes are a bit misleading (you might think that it's going be very serious and realistic- "oh sweet they're gonna use science to combat the vampirism" NOPE JUST KILL IT LIKE YOU WOULD KILL A ZOMBIE) and you really need to suspend your disbelief a lot. The characters start off smart but descend into horror movie tropes and do some idiotic things- they are mostly likable though and not too incompetent when it comes to slaying vamps. The plot is intriguing enough to keep you watching, though, it suffers a bit towards the end of the first season. That being said it's still got plenty of room for improvement if gets green lighted for more seasons.

TLDR; Don't go in expecting anything too intelligent but if you're looking for some B-movie-like vampire slaying entertainment then you could do a lot worse. (also some decent SFX, gore and lighting)
