When I watch The Strain (and I love this show), it reminds me of what will happen when crazy liberal monsters suck the life out of America and its wonderful people, leaving empty shells of all of those they affect… only liberals are worse than the monsters in The Strain.

This is a great show, and I’m enjoying it very much. I don’t understand why people are so negative towards it.

I’m loving the show. Great idea. I love the twist on an old subject & plot; it is very creative; the acting is well done. I most makes you think, “could something like that happen”. I sincerely hope we get another season. At the very least.
