It seems that many people were hotly anticipating the orgy scene, but I never expected much of it in the way of exhibition. Right from the beginning I thought the hype created around it was odd and...

At least the execution is somewhat different. There have been so many series in this genre that it's easy for these shows to meld into dull sameness, in both plot and dialogue. Its peculiarities make...

Agreed. It's a very welcome deviation from modern TV's usual synth loops, predictable pastiche and bland, interchangeable ostinatos.

The best one yet in my mind, and at times fairly masterful in execution. I suppose that means the overly negative critics found it mildly entertaining at best, and not enough for them to take down...

Looking forward to it, though it's sad that the series is coming to an end. To be honest, I'm surprised we even got one more season after last year's dismal ratings.

FXX: Where some of the better...

I wouldn't be surprised if Pizzolatto is partially having fun with all of the people who fervently criticized season 1's dialogue. I'm almost hoping that he trolled the critics hard for the finale. :D

Yes, the kid is dragging the show down. The flashbacks were very good as usual. I'm starting to like Dutch's quirkiness, which is probably aided by the ill-advised swim in the pool.

That was the most solid episode yet. Ani at the sexual harassment meeting, Woodrugh arguing with his mother and Velcoro beating the piss out of the psychiatrist were all quality moments.

Agreed. I like Russ and Lina well enough, but AJ, Jess and Shep are almost always the standouts. I suppose that makes perfect sense, though, given that Russ and Lina are deeply entrenched in the...

I respect Neil Young's musicianship, but with extreme tinnitus I would imagine it all sounding bad to him. ;)

Good episode that further highlights my fondness for Brett Gelman's AJ character. I'm glad to have this show back.

I think The Strain is a fun series that often veers into endearing schlock territory. I don't think it's nearly as gripping as series like Fargo and The Americans, but not everything has to be on...

She's a fox, but always seems highly comatose in this show.

Last episode made me wonder if there's much more to her character's reach in power than I initially thought.

What confuses me most about this discussion is that I never knew "apoplectic" was considered as an obscure word that only those who scored high on GRE vocabulary would know and use.

I think the writing is fairly good so far for a beginning three episodes. As in reality, these are by and large contemptible people with purely shallow, materialistic goals. Many of those who aren't...

I found that episode to be quite good. What I especially like is how the show portrays a political power couple where infidelity is understood among each other and pretty much expected.

This season has hit its stride with that episode. Perhaps most important is that I now find Woodrugh and Frank to be interesting characters.

Good one. I was hoping for that little dunce to get a Rock Bottom. If he had to assault him, he may as well have gone for his finishing move. :D

I agree, but in this worn genre some elements are inevitably going to veer into old-hat territory.

I have no doubt that there will be a decent payoff for watching this, but right now I'm almost...
