Greetings from Germany! I have been off the radar for a bit while I consume chocolate and sausage (wink wink). My significant other downloaded some episodes of The Strain, a show I was interested in because of the horror and gore after they subjected the world to the eye-worm advertisement. People freaked out, so I was instantly interested. I had no knowledge of the show other than the freakish gore part, hoping it might be a more sci-fi style American Horror Story with even creepier body horror. All this is a big “yay” for me.
I watched the first episode only. It was stunningly bad. I can’t believe anyone likes this. Here’s how to take a great idea and turn it into diarrhea.
