STRAIN, Rinse and STRAIN again

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on August 17, 2015 at 10:21 am

fx-strainFX is nasty, but I keep on watching
and THE STRAIN is the series of late, that I’ve been clocking.

Some type of virus has taken ahold…
to deliver mankind to a vampiring soul.

This seasons virus has evolved along with the writers hand.
It’s not seamless, but this direction is one that I creatively understand.

Last season on The Strain, bald vampires – via mouth, extended tracheas from their neck,
the tip of which injects poison and the life of the victim was immediately checked.
Zombie born; mortally wrecked.

This season reveals mutation. The darn strain has evolved from the zombie walk
via younger victims – equipping them with speed and a side-crawl.

Vaun and his hoodied team of Ancients are all dead.
They were casualties of an ultraviolet laser bed.

There’s a new Ancient in town and he’s been in the council circle.
I can’t quote ‘what’ they discussed in particular because the elders just gurgle.


Augustine Elizalde is played by Miguel Gomez

Government is vexed, scrambling to quarantine and find a mass cure.
Augustine is a natural warrior; of his survival, he is sure.

He’s taken on a lead role in maneuvering through the streets like a ghost.
It’s a darn shame what the strain has done to NY and the East Coast.

The writers have switched it up and Ephraim ‘done cut off all of his hair
and Prof. Abraham‘s background is getting more of the spotlights share.

Eldritch Palmer and Thomas Eichorst discuss the Master and his grand plans.
Palmer wants to talk to the Master personally but cock-blocking of Eichorst stands.

The evolution the their “Masters” plan is a real humanity intrusion.
Zack‘s biological mother is the zombie mom to the new bred vampire evolution.

Zack’s dad is Ephraim, the CDC doctor working to make things right,
ISO a resolution to seize the terrors that prey on their lives at night.

S2 – Episode 6 showed Dr. Nora in transit with Zack whilst the sky was dim
when his zombie strain-infected mom showed up with plans to retrieve him.

The name of this episode is appropriately titled: IDENTITY
and when it comes to cast members – this series has plenty.


Both [Ancient] Vaun and [Human] Fitzwilliams have gotten GOT!

If you aren’t lost by now because in fact you are glued
let us talk a little bit about the lone black dude.

Reggie Fitzwilliam is historical in the Strains seams –
orignal script painted him white, casting agents yielded a black dream.

Fitzwilliam bore a knights sheen, but that was cut down and put in check
when in Episode 6, one of the new breeds bit him and Prof. Abraham took his neck.

Yep. It was brief, he was memorable and he is now a free agent; an opportunity batter.
Roger Cross fully transforms into Six on the SYFY series DARK MATTER.

Have you seen it? You should give it a try.
The script isn’t too dark, but it is worlds apart – still Roger Cross is nigh.
Oh my, Oh my…

Back to The Strain and the nastiness that it entails,
the Master shot his strained batter into the another human shell.

Down went the ogre monstrosity that roamed the gutter in hump back fashion,
he has assumed the body of that rock-n-roll fella resembling Marilyn Manson.

And he is new again – no more ancient, overgrown body,
still I’d be lying if I said his new look was closer to hottie.

No. Not at all.
However, now he is of average height and not so freakishly tall.
The character remains consistent with looking disgusting, y’all.

The evolution of this series is on the sprawl, so many new sucklings have taken root,
I’m Qui
Running down these shows with thee, The Strain wins “most interesting reboot.”

I know this choice of show is a tad bit sick, but you knew from the jump, “I was a SCI FI chick!”

A is for ALPHAS

In Griot, News, TV Shows on June 26, 2011 at 10:38 am

Of course Malik is an ALPHA and according to SYFY he’s also slated to be the strong arm of the season. Malik plays the role of Bill Harken who has a super power of strength. I haven’t seen it yet, but the previews have shown Malik pushing a parked car aside in a suit…so…maybe it’s like Heroes or UnOrdinary Family. Curiously I’ll be watching SyFy this summer: — SUMMER is finally official and for Syfy that means more “Eureka” and “Warehouse 13.”

And, joining the light-hearted shows this year will be the second season of “Haven” and the cabler’s latest series, “Alphas.”

The series revolved around a group of ordinary citizens who develop bizarre and unusual abilities, leading them to follow in the footsteps of comic book greats by setting out to fight crime. In addition to run-of-the-mill street crime, the group of Alpha’s will also investigate cases that the CIA, FBI and Pentagon have been more than happy to leave unsolved.

“Alphas” initially started off as “Section 8” which was turned down by NBC in 2007 when the network was already committed to “Heroes” for the fall season. The series was eventually given life at ABC for a six episode pilot season with expectations of pairing it with “Lost,” a move that would certainly have pushed the series to greatness.

Then of course disaster struck. The Writers Guild of America downed tools and headed to the picket lines leaving “Alphas” in limbo. Like many other shows, the series never recovered from the strike although not from a lack of enthusiasm from the Disney-owned ABC network. Instead, it was creative differences that brought the series production to a halt before the first episode was even scripted.

Syfy recently announced its summer schedule, confirming that “Alphas” would be making its debut in July and outlining a host of new shows currently in development. Both Kevin Sorbo and Lee Majors — both sci-fi/fantasy icons in the realms of “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Six Million Dollar Man” — will pick up their own shows, both playing fictionalized versions of themselves

In addition, Syfy has revealed plans for more unscripted projects including “The Haunted Collector,” “Legend Quest” and “Paranormal Witness.”

The channel also confirmed that plans are in place to broadcast special Christmas-themed episodes of “Eureka,” Warehouse 13″ and “Haven” around the festive season.

I miss New York Undercover – It was action packed and content thick.
I also missed seeing Michael De Lorenzo & Malik’s ashy lips. lol!

Okay – I’m just kidding around. Malik has got it going on.
