it's a vampire show!

only instead of being sexy smart vampires, it's a weird mutating disease that is f*cking gross and it's somehow related to guillermo del toro

and the acting and some of the script is TERRIBLE, but it has a comfy b movie comic book vibe and the plot seems to be going interesting places and walder frey is in it as a crazy ex concentration camp pawn shop vampire hunter dude

anyone watching?

It was OK.

I watched the first episode and lost interest, tbh.

I'm enjoying it, tbh. I read the book on a whim as an airport buy on my way to LA this summer, and it was nice mindless, fun stuff. The show is getting better, so I think I'll keep watching.

A good friend of mine plays the little girl's father.

I read the comic, not my thing. There were interesting new vampire culture stuff though.

Oh, so was it a comic first, or a book?

A comic created by Del Toro.

It's published by Dark Horse. The art is great. Good pacing.

Gotcha. I can see how it would maybe play out better that way.

Oh. Didn't know that. I stand corrected.

It was originally intended to be for TV but for reasons i do not know, Del Toro ended up writing them as books alongside Chuck Hogan. I read the books and thought they dragged on a bit. It was obviously not meant to be a written narrative. I'll watch the show when season one is done.

I watched it for the first time last Sunday. I didn't hate it. I think I'll catch it (haha) next Sunday.
