The Strain (S03E10) “The Fall”

Review. Warning, this review contains spoilers. Season finale arrived and it was EPIC! The Fall is an episode full of tension which will keep you glued to the screen till the very end; it turns the apocalyptic scenario even darker than it already is, and gives you one more reason to hate Zach. Palmer officially…

The Strain (S03E09) “Do or Die”

Review. Warning, this review contains spoilers. I can summarize this episode in one word: amazing. There are a couple of deaths, characters I personally am going to miss: Feraldo, Kowalski, and Angel. I’d like to have seen more of Angel. Justine was fearless until the end, and Kowalski was the most loyal man in the…

The Strain (S03E08) “White Light”

Review: Warning, this review contains spoilers. First of all: my apologies for the delay. I’ve been really busy and my internet hasn’t been working quite well. We are only two episodes away from the season finale and everything is going so slow that makes me anxious. You know that feeling, the calm before the storm, well,…

The Strain (S03E07) “Collaborators”

Review: Warning, this review contains spoilers. After the final scene of “The Battle of Central Park” I was expecting to see a mega apocalyptic episode:  bloodbath on the streets, chaos, the city on fire, strigois everywhere…none of that happened. “Collaborators” was a slow episode but  good. Eph, Dutch and Quinlan go to the JFK Airport to…

The Strain (S03E06) “The Battle of Central Park”

Review: Warning, this review contains spoilers. This is the most amazing episode of the season up to now. OMG. I was holding my breath during all the first part, then I was relieved, then they crushed my soul. Simply brilliant. At the beginning we see everyone getting ready to fight, the plan is simple: the…

The Strain (S03E05) “Madness”

Review: Oh, in the name of Odin the Allfather, this was a great episode. With the Master still nowhere to be found everyone is focusing on finding ways to fight strigois. Fet is working on his own and reporting to Justine his findings, and  Justine is losing her mind trying to keep the city safe….

The Strain (S03E04) “Gone but not Forgotten”

Review:  Gone but not forgotten takes place immediately after The Master’s apparent death. Relationships between the members of the group seems to be broken. Dutch is back. Quinlan and Zach, the annoying kid, are still alive. Gus and Angel are forced to clean a tunnel from strigois. And strigois, temporarily without their guide, are doing…

The Strain (S03E03) “The Born”

Review:  In my view, this is the kind of episode where nothing seems to happen, but things do happen; and we get a glimpse into Quinlan’s past. It opens with a flashback: Ephrain and Kelly in the delivery room the day Zack was born — nothing interesting here. Following that, we get mother-son scene, Kelly…

The Strain S02E05: Quick & Painless

Review: Why do all these shows start off well, end off well, but in the middle they just get stagnant & keep stretching one story as long as they can. In this episode we see Abraham running around with his shiny silver sword looking for a book he thinks could destroy the master. Again I…

The Strain S02E04: The Silver Angel

Review: The excitement we felt in season 01 for the show seems to have slowed down drastically in season 2. Season 1 was all about survival. The plaque had been released, people were getting infected & changing and everyone was fighting to get away. Season 2 on the other hand seems a bit more politically…
