All I can say is... Yesssssss! I was waiting for the good news.
I'm so glad you enjoy my reviews! It's amazing talking to other fans about The Strain and sharing theories etc... I will be covering "Constantine" this fall and hopefully a couple of others. Is that new show on your list?
Exactly, notice I stopped using that word and exclusively refer to them as strigoi. Somehow this minor tweak makes the series much more unique. I'm also ready to see The Master up close!
Absolutely, there must be thousands of strigoi after the eclipse. I'm just greedy and wanted to see them in action haha. Yeah Eichhorst is something else. I wonder if we will see more like him. You know much more sophisticated and in control. I definitely see Gus, Vasiliy and the team coming together before the end of the season. Wonder if any others will be introduced.

I'm sure they will refer back to the eclipse as a major turning point in the spread of the virus. Perhaps I'm thinking of Walking Dead too much, but I really wanted to see a hoard of strigoi wreaking havoc. You know? It's entirely possible the creative team doesn't want to overdo it and they're saving a moment like that for the finale. Just a minor quibble. You're right Vasiliy's the only one aware of the strigoi without help. That's what makes him a powerful asset. He can teach Eph & company a thing or two. Looking forward to their meeting. Thanks for your feedback!
Both these guys are great! Looking forward to a very different Helix Season 2.
Yeah you won't get that spoiler from me Ha!
Hey thanks for your feedback Pratik. I mentioned in the comments I won't be discussing the books anymore. In my own way, I was attempting to point out the strigoi mythology is quite unique and interesting. Many people are dismissing the series as just another vampire show. The Poland flashbacks are a perfect example of how fresh del Toro's take on vampirism is. Grandma Setrakian's story is on a completely different path, we actually might not see her again on the show. It's like with Walking Dead, some characters die in the comics but are alive on the TV series. As far as Eichhorst, he was standing outside in the sun in the flashback. Clearly he is not a strigoi at that point. That one is not a spoiler my friend ;) Regarding round tables, I am definitely considering it. Honestly, I was hoping for more interaction at the reviews before trying a round table. My Vikings reviews had hundreds of comments. Guess The Strain fans are shy haha. Keep you posted on round tables.
I really enjoyed the premiere, definitely hooked!
Haven't watched this episode yet, but the good news is I caught up with the previous three. Will come back to comment later today when I've watched episode 8. Honestly I have no clue what's going on LOL
