We started watching from the beginning but stopped because it became apparent that it was just another vampire series. No more zombies, vampires, or comic book characters. Does anybody have anything original thought?

If you paid any attention, you would have noticed its a parasite not simplistic vampires.

I listened to the audio books and LOVED all 3 of them. I was hoping for a movie to come out so imagine my excitment when I heard there was going to be a series!!!! I am loving the series so far and FX is doing a great job on story line with book although some parts are a bit off but still great job. I can’t wait till season 2 comes out! I hope this series goes all the way thru the last book. Thanks FX!!!!

FX has got a real hit on there hands but don’t screw it up. Yes this show should be renewed I am excited for season 2 but I don’t think it can be a long drout like the Walking Dead. I don’t think The Strain could come back from such a long hiatus.
