Just finished the series today. The episode with his flashback and when he held Dutch hostage was the best of the series IMO.

Are the books worth reading?

It had a good premise but ended up being retarded.

spoiler------





How does the government not send in the army or do much of anything when Vampires are rapidly taking over NYC?

Because everything happened over days, not 3 years

Started out OK and took a very big dive by the end of Se01
Unwatchable IMO

Yeah I was glad to be done with it.

Lots of plot holes. Like at the end the Master says: I'll never get close enough to the bomb to Born-O

Not much later he's marching his whole vamp army right to them to fight :hmm:

The series did an absolute shit job explaining it.

Ozryel, one of three arch-angels sent to annihilate Sodom and Gamorah, was cut up into peices. The pieces were spread across the earth. So the second nuke was to destroy the part of the body that created the master. He had no choice but to try and stop him

If you're not into history and religion it's going to be a bore to you. I love history so it's a nice twist on things. The fall was probably my favorite. Night eternal answers a lot of questions the series didn't have time to. Basically s1-3 is the strain, s4 was supposed to be the fall, and s5 was book 3. But FX cut it down to 4 seasons. That's why s4 was such a steaming pile of shit.

I think I'll enjoy them and it looks like my library has ebooks I can use so will go that route. If I don't then no $ spent.
