CREATOR: Guillermo del Toro
The first solid series about vampirism in a long time?
"A thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease
Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral
outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team,
and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself."
Don't be put off by the slightly corny summary above. I just finished watching the first two episodes,
and I found them pretty spectacular. Actors seem genuine, and it's really well written. It's got such
an intense feeling to it, which you rarely get from these sorts of shows, maybe with the exception of
Lost and True Blood to a degree. More than worth a watch. At least check out the trailer.
