It tells the story of "Dr. Ephraim Goodweather," the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself. Co-Creators, Executive Producers and Writers del Toro and Hogan co-wrote the pilot script for The Strain, which was directed by del Toro. Emmy(R) Award winning Writer and Producer Carlton Cuse serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner and Writer. Gary Ungar also serves as Executive Producer. The series is produced by FX Productions. FX has ordered 13 episodes of The Strain for its first season which will air Sunday nights at 10 PM ET/PT.

    I watched it and enjoyed it - even had one "OMG/gasp/jump" moment I'm looking forward to more!

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    Best thing about cable networks, the endless repeats.

    Corey Stoll with hair? Totally weird. I barely recognized him. I'm still watching the first episode, but I think I'm in for the rest of the series. I really like this kind of stuff.

    I agree! Found out they are showing the premiere on Sunday just before the new episode... at least on FX Canada.

    Sadly, if the way they handle repeats of Sons of Anarchy is any indication, they actually won't reply this series much throughout the week. FX is terrible getting episodes to OnDemand and rarely repeat SOA episodes (and episodes of The Americans as well) after the night they first air. Makes it hard to catch up if you miss one.

    I think different shows have different agreements with the On Demand portions of the different cable companies and that's why you have to double check what shows you have to watch the night they air versus catching it on a different night.

    Re: The Strain - FX

    I always watch the FX shows first because they aren't good about getting episodes up OnDemand AND they don't re-air their 10:00 dramas very frequently. Yes, some series are worse than others at this (SOA is one of the worst), but I've found that FX, in general, is pretty bad.

    I missed it!!!! I hate that, because FX is so difficult to catch up on. I'll try to though. This is one I really wanted to see.
