I dropped it after season 1 after it became clear the show didn't respect the audience.

I came across an op-ed about how crappy Zach was in season 2 after he started smashing up his dad's lab filled with deadly diseases.

Then most recently I clicked a youtube vid showing Zach detonating a nuclear bomb in New York because he hated his father.

So glad I bailed.

I wanted to like this, forced myself through the first season and never felt compelled to return for season two. Is it at all worth it to try to pick it back up?

I'm not sure I can do this again. Unless Zack gets killed off the first episode. Also this would have to follow GoT and this would be such a goddamn downer. I might DVR this.

I don't remember if I watched season 3 or not.

Last I remember is bald good guys wife turned into a vampire and had a bunch of vampire kids, and "good" vampires were introduced.

Nope that sounds like season 2, you would distinctly remember season 3 and the fuckery that went down.

I think I might have forgotten weather he was alive or not. I will add him in when I get a minute.

Also, can a mod change the "H" at the end of the title to a "K"? I fucked up.

He will be on the show but I feel like they've never known what to do with that character. He is just "there".

Oh god, I might as well put up with this season since it's the last one.

And then they'll announce some spinoff series.

I don't remember a whole lot about the books back when I read them, but I remember strongly disliking the way they end everything.

Have there been any divergences from the books thus far? Any chances of them changing anything up? I only watched through season 1.

I haven't read them, but my understanding is they've been diverging from the books in a lot of ways since season 1. One of the main characters since season 1 isn't even in the books IIRC.

Show is utter tripe, but I'm glad they had the balls to stay with the post-apocalypse storyline of book three. But this is This Show, so I fully expect them to embrace the left turn supernatural bullshit that was thrown into Night Eternal.

They actually have been adding major new characters and plotlines. Dutch. The bioweapon. The best parts of season three - the actual warzone of New York - were never in the book.

I bailed out last season. I found out I don't hate myself as much as I thought I did.

Gus was one of the few compelling characters in the books, so of course the show gave him the shaft. I was so looking forward to the Gus-Quinlan Team Up Power Hour. And they even truncated Creem's involvement in the story to a cameo in the first episode. Which was odd because he was a major human bro-tagonist in book three.

If the show goes the way of the book, expect Under the Dome level jank.

I still remember how I got excited after watching the pilot episode and read all the books before season 1 was even finished. The first book was okay, the second was disappointing and the third was just pure trash.

I'm guessing they're going to go for the unhappy ending.

Abraham will finally defeat the Strigoi but at the cost of his own life, saving Zach from the clutches of the Master.

Reunited with his father who he still hates, they walk off into the sunset to build a new life.

The end.

No. NO! NOOOooooo!

I'm going to writer a strongly worded email if this happens. He needs to die. I didn't even hate Joffrey as much as I hate Zach. He's irredeemable, he needs to die and painfully. I want to see his head on a pike with everyone taking turns to spit on it.

I thought they cancelled The Strain years ago!
Only watched 1,2 episodes. It wasn't bad, but didn't like it and then there weren't any hype about it. Is it good? Specially for someone who loved Fringe. Are there similarities between The Strain and Fringe or I'm totally wrong?
