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...
