The Strain: Is FX's Vampire Drama Too Graphic?

Cory Stoll

Warning: The Strain might not be for everyone.

FX's new vampire drama isn't a melancholy love story about the undead cursed to walk the earth for eternity and forced to hide their true nature. Instead, these vampires are fierce, blood-hungry killing machines with basically one goal: spread the strain of vampirism around the world.

Based on the novels from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the horror story follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control, whose team is called in to investigate a mysterious "dead" plane that lands at JFK. Every passenger, save for four, have mysteriously died from an unknown virus that will soon turn them into vampires — cogs in the ultimate war in which vampires will take over the world.

The Bridge Boss on Season 2 Changes: It Is a “Four-Course Meal of Weirdness”

Demian Bichir, Diane Kruger

FX's border drama The Bridge has undergone a reboot of sorts in its second season.

While the show's first season followed Detectives Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) and Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) as they hunted for a serial killer in Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, Season 2 casts a much wider thematic net. Now left completely to its own devices rather than following the Scandinavian show on which it was based, The Bridge has shifted its focus to examine how political and corporate corruption on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border permeates issues like the drug trade, immigration and human trafficking. But make no mistake — it's actually more twisted (and bloody) than ever.

"It is a radically different show, and I mean that in the best sense of the word," creator Elwood Reid tells TVGuide.com. "It's trying to tell a bigger story, but the way we're trying to tell a bigger story is not to shovel a bunch of facts at you. We're telling it through characters, through things that affect people's lives."

Adds Reid: "[Police procedurals] can be empty calories. I'm going to set the table, I'm going to serve you some appetizers, and then I'm going to serve you a real rich four-course meal of weirdness, and let's see how that goes, instead of just that constant sugar rush of hunting the serial killer every week."

Will FX's New Family Drama Tyrant Rule?

Jennifer Finnigan, Adam Rayner

FX's latest drama Tyrant is a strange case. 

The drama (premiering Tuesday at 10/9c) stars Adam Rayner as Bassam "Barry" Al-Fayeed, the second son of a dictator (Nasser Faris) who left his homeland — the fictional Middle Eastern country of Abuddin — and started his own family in California. But when Barry's wife Molly (Jennifer Finnigan) urges him to return to Abuddin after 20 years for his nephew's wedding, Barry is quickly sucked back into the family drama he tried to escape, most notably by his loose-cannon brother Jamal (Ashraf Barhom).

Although the show's attempt to lift the veil on life in the Middle East is the most compelling aspect of the project, it's also perhaps the most problematic when it comes to selling a commercial television show. But the show's creative team... read more
