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.

I've got it on my list to watch, sounds pretty interesting.

Also pretty similar to helix in a sense.

I saw it, turned out better than I expected. That poor guy's head gone in a few seconds. Not that that's the main reason I watched it. It's mostly for the story, the suspense of when the next infected person will go on the prowl. Honest.

The GF and I checked it out the other night. It looks good, it is an interesting take on an old story that has been told to death. Looks interesting.

3 episodes in now, got to say it's pretty interesting to watch.

I'm not all that looking forward to the rock star being a vampire lord or whatever, such a stereotype.

Also, the main guy is bald and is wearing a wig.

yeah some do, but some are awesome. the one with the cab for instance. the first one was ok , the second one was awesome



i think the thing that comes out of the mouth really looks good too.

I like the whole story as a whole. also going back to WW2 and see how it started. its great.

I watched the first episode but couldn't get into it, thought it looked a bit silly.

Reviews and general opinion seem good though so maybe I'm missing out, might have to try episode 2.

I'll watch it if its science fiction. I'm not into that supernatural stuff.

Can you believe that Orphan Black is still more than half a year away?
