The Strain is starting to take effect...
30 July 2014 | by Brettyboy007See all my reviews

Just finished watching episode 3 of The Strain. I must say that this show will definitely be the next big hit. Literally. I can see this being the next Breaking Bad as long as they keep up this pace.

This episode followed more of the book, with some nasty scenes thrown in there that were different than the book. We did not see Gus in this episode, but instead, we were seeing more of Ansel and his family.

I love how the show is really following the book, save for some minor differences.

It will definitely be getting crazier from here, as this episode for sure raised the bar from episode 2.

I loved the ending.
