yeah, from watching the Aftershow of it… now I’m wondering how The Strain would’ve turned out if Guillermo continued to be involved… apparently he kinda walked away before season 1 was even over! :lol: Odd… I thought season 1 was good… good enough to at least keep me hooked and interested in the future of the show.
My only disappointment right from the start was in how weak the common vampires are. They can be killed in such normal/boring ways… like they aren’t much different from zombies. If you shoot them enough times they’ll die… you don’t even need special bullets either. They can even be killed just by hitting them hard enough… like you take a baseball bat to their face a few times…they’re done, just like an ordinary human…or if you run over them with a moderately fast-moving vehicle…and really, that’s just lame, man.
I do enjoy the idea of there being a hierarchy of the species… but the vampire should always be more difficult to kill than a normal human…even the low-level ones. This is one of the things CW’s shows got right… over those shows, you have only a few very specific ways to kill them (the usual- stake to the heart; burning to death in the sunlight [with no enchanted object protecting them], or cutting their heads off), and anything that falls short of that is ineffective.
