    The Master Plan

    The Strain Season 2 picks up where the first left off, but with the new season, it loses some of the motivation and tension that made the first season so effective and gripping. Thankfully, midseason, things get a lot more intriguing thanks to the newfound focus on the Master and Eichorst's plans as well as the introduction of a new Daywalker who fights for his own unseen ambitions. Story threads involving Eph and Setrakian, the old warrior, are mostly followed through and tied up to the final episode, with the exception of some cliffhangers that can only be answered in season 3, which may possibly be the last season, as only ten episodes are planned compared to thirteen in the 1st and 2nd seasons. If you're wondering if this is a show you'd be interested in, The Strain is very much about the decisions humans make when presented with greed or fighting against a greater evil, which is a recurring theme throughout the series. Additionally, if you have a tolerance for parasitic worms crawling beneath the skin that infest the human host and turn it into a obedient servant to the Master Vampire, this is the show for you, as there are many, gory examples of this in The Strain.

    The Strain Season Two Delivers!!

    The Strain Season Two follows our group of heroes from the first season as they continue to fight, hunt, and kill the strigoi. This time they are searching for the Occido Lumen an ancient book that tells how to destroy the master and finally stop the attack from the vampire/snake strigoi. New characters are introduced, there are losses, wins, heartbreaks, and victories to an extent. This show is fantastic as I have followed the comics for years. Hats off to Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan for really bringing an excellent adaptation to F/X. If you like action, adventure, horror, mystery, suspense, thrills, and of course a few laughs check this out. Amazing performances by David Bradley, Jonathan Hyde, Kevin Durand, and Richard Sammel.

    Even though i had read the books (prompting me to buy the series), season one still left me and my entire family on edge wondering how the directors were going to translate the next events onto the screen and what was going to happen to the story's heros. After months of waiting for season 2 to come out on disc it was truly a dissapointment to see that they really missed the mark in terms of continued development of the characters. Combine that with the subpar hokey special effects and what you get is a continuation of a plot that really can't engage the audience.i gave up watching after disc 1 and not likely to take the time to finish the rest of the season. Hoping they will improve the next installment.

    Finally Season 2 is available on dvd. I don't stream yet. It took too long for this season to come out on dvd.I waited a year for this season to be released on dvd. Now after the long wait Ifealt that Season 2 was slower than season1. I craved more action and I didn't get it. There are some interesting new characters in season 2 like the kid vampires and interesting moments like how The Master got the body he had in season 1.Here is hopeing Season 3 is going tobe much better. Shout out to Best Buy for the nice sale price when it was released on dvd.

    The strain Continues to be a great show. Out of the three viral/pathogen shows that came out recently Helix, The Last Ship, and The Strain. I would say that The Strain is probably my favorite. The premise is pretty interesting and Season two doubles down on some of the great parts of the first season. Interesting take on the subject matter Cool plots and ideas pretty great effects Highly recommend.

    I am a huge fan of Guillermo Del Toro and love his work. This is the only vampire show i watch, but be warned this is not your typical vampire. They are more animal-like but controlled by "The Master" like a hive mind and are called Strigoi instead of vampires. The vampires design is similar to the reapers on Blade 2. Great story characters and drama everything you look for in a show.

    If you survived watching the over-all disappointing season one of The Strain, then your in for a treat with season two. WAY better season in almost every category. Great overall story. And good short stories for the most part and character development, good cause & effect stories and even very cool flashback stories. After you watch this season, you'll be hungry to continue the story.

    The strain season 2 has finally been released on DVD! If you have seen season 1 you know what to expect here. Season 2 picks up where the first season left off. More exciting apocalyptic vampire excitement. If you enjoyed the first season you have to keep watching. Now hopefully they don't make us wait too long for season 3 on DVD!
