Horror fans, are you watching The Strain? The FX series created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, based on their novel trilogy of the same name? I've been ... well, I'm not sure enjoying it is the right word, particularly considering the scene involving a guy nonchalantly flushing his own penis down the toilet, but I'm always a little excited when there's a new episode on the DVR.
The Strain kind of reminds me of Sons of Anarchy: it's got enough going for it that you can forgive its occasional cheesiness. In terms of quality, you never quite forget that you're watching FX and not, say, HBO, but it's gratifyingly dark, and even with The Walking Dead paving the gore-strewn way, it's surprisingly disgusting for basic cable. In fact, between the graphic splatter and the fact that the show's vampires are decidedly unsexy, I wasn't sure this show would be a hit.
It sounds like the people have spoken, though: The Strain has officially been renewed for a second season.
