Vampires?!?!? I know, I know, I rolled my eyes as well when he told me about it. But apparently THE STRAIN will be to Vampires like THE WALKING DEAD is to zombies. And it will air on FX who brought us Sons of Anarchy, Justified, and American Horror Story, so I have every faith that it will be just as great as those shows. #TheseVampiresDoNotSparkle
