Trailer

I read this book by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan when it first came out, then the second in the trilogy (just got the third part) it was a very clever story and is coming to the small screen. No sparkly vamps, nor benign southern ones but hard core 'farm the humans' mean.

Can't wait :lol:

Jury out currently, it wasn't dreadful but neither was it awesome. It was only the pilot and I read a few reviews of people who loved it so guess I can wait and see.

On the subject of vampires, it was better than True Blood though :P

I loved it! But also waiting to see if it maintains. But good start. That death though... Worse than the viper!

Episode 2 was much much better, this series has great promise.

Well *wipes off dust* I have very dusty hands from a lot of these threads :P Show some life people.

Season 1 was awesome and season 2 is shaping up along the same lines. They have diverged quite a lot from the books but I am seriously enjoying it.

Those children..... no punches pulled there.
And oh she is welcome to Zach

Am really enjoying season 2! The kid minions are the creepiest, I agree.
