OH. MY. GOSH
I just discovered a new TV series and I am so very much loooooooving it!
It's called The Strain.
How did I get to watch it? Well, it was in our HD. I was bored and I wanted to watch a new show. I was browsing the folders and the I decided to just re-watch White Collar (because I so love Neal Caffrey) when I saw a new title - The Strain. I got very curious and decided to watch an episode. And the rest they say is history. I saw all five (5) episodes in one night.
That is how much I enjoyed the show. I was so impressed and hooked on the pilot. I don't think there's a show (this year) that got me hooked on the pilot alone. I couldn't explain it - but I was HOOKED. I was looking forward to every scene, I was giddy and concentrated at the same time. I was so excited - really really excited and I wanted to know what happened next.
When my Panget got home - I gushed about the show. I told him that he would love it, and that it was super duper nice. He just said one thing 'Guillermo del Toro'. It was only then that I knew why he had that particular show on our HD. My Panget has this talent for picking out TV shows - and this one, he has in our HD. The only reason he has it is because of Guillermo del Toro. My Panget is a huge huge huge fan of this man. My Panget has watched ALL of his movies and is surely going to watch his future films - with me in tow (whether I like it or not). My Panget then proceeds to tell me that this was a book that was made into a TV show. I didn't know that Guillermo del Toro wrote a book! I then googled it and yeah - he did write it.
Isn't it exciting? I don't want to go into detail because I might spoil it for you, but I swear to you - if you're a fan of sci-fi/vampire/suspense thriller - then please please, do watch this show! I promise you, you won't be disappointed! Every episode makes you more curious. I really wish I can be patient enough to compile the next few episodes so I can have more than an hour's worth of episode to watch. I keep waiting for another scene after the episode fades to black. Dammit! Self control!!
Oh, and Sean Astin is there.
