Premiered on FX last night, it's kind of a Contagion mixed with vampires show.  Pretty good so far, first episode was directed by Guillermo del Toro.

So no one's watching this?  I'm really enjoying it, my favorite show of the summer.  It's not quite Walking Dead quality, but for a TV horror show based on a book (or comic book), it's pretty well done.

Nah, a preview that I read before it started warned that it's over the top on blood and gore. I don't care for that so I decided to give it a pass. If that turns out to be a bad call I'll catch it on DVD later on.

I've watched the first two episodes and would say it's pretty well done. I read the books last year, and they seem to be staying very true to what I remember so far. I'll definitely be sticking with it for a while if for no other reason than to see how they handle some of the major twists of the story. It could be one heck of a ride if they tell it well...

Well, that was an interesting new wrinkle at the end of this latest episode.

Yeah I was totally like WTF?!?  WTF?!??!  WTF?!?!  (shouted loudly at the TV with no one else in the room)

Really enjoying the show and glad to see it got picked up for season 2.  I read they have a 3 to 5 season plan in place.

Don't know how many total but I think there are either 1 or 2 more.

I found it interesting that the two women and the two kids didn't seem phased by the appearance of their savior.  Although to be fair, I guess once you see your dad dead and your mom trying to kill you with a 12 foot long snake tongue, lizard guy with buckteeth is sort of like seeing Rick Astley suddenly appear.
