There are other equally professional and noteworthy characters with the likes of David Bradley, Kevin Durant, Ruta Gedmintas, Migual Gomez along with Rupert Penry-Henry. All these characters have their unique presence, charisma and existence as a deep and thorough mind has gone to give a boost to the story with their unique presentation and existence. The negative roles have also been essayed well by Jonathen Hyde and Erichard Sammel. Similarly, there are many more cast and crew members who have carved a niche for themselves with their creative skills.
The Strain story
The main theme of the story is how humans have to put up a stiff fight so as to get away from the parasitic infection that may well endanger their own existence by turning them into blood sucking vampires. Yes, the visualization which seems scary, ‘actually is’ and the sequence of events that authenticates the tough fight for survival is well depicted through the show which makes you at the edge of your seat. While you start with no expectations, you end up feeling happy to have watched the movie thanks to the sequence of events which are full of great acting skills and visualizations. You will love the show even more, if you are fond of vampire stories.
The show offers the summary of the four seasons that are based on vampires which takes their significance to a whole new level. If you are looking for an ideal classic horror monster, then the plot offers just that.
The first two seasons are abound with creativity and actions that set a prime example of how a show should actually be. The show will revive the memories you had during the time of watching zombie movies where the uncertainties in terms of friends turning foes within seconds become the reality. That makes the show reliving with the query, “What’s going to happen next?” which gathers loads of viewership in the process. Additionally, the characters with their artistically justifiable skills further add spark.
For example, Corey Stoll essays the role of an arrogant man who has issues and trouble with so many things but is focussed towards saving humanity. His name in the show is Dr. Ephraim Goodweather. He, with a noble agenda, encounters many mistakes to his credit where he faces losses too. Even though he is portrayed as the main character, the way he makes mistakes, and that certainly reduces his popularity in the show (is actually a novel and brave thing).
In season 1, Ben Hyland played the role as the son of Goodweather, while in subsequent seasons, he was replaced by Max Charles, who was horribly wrong with his role, as he seemed to be miscast. He didn’t give due respect to others and that’s how it becomes challenging for people to sympathize about him, especially when he had a personal loss as his mother was murdered. He didn’t have an authoritative role or else he wouldn’t have met fate, since he never played the role as someone to save humanity.
His poor acting skills during the subsequent seasons also ended the show getting diminishing views during the end of third season. In the previous season, his father murdered his mother, and when he confronted him for doing such an inhuman act, there was such an exaggeration which the show has shown. Yes, he has been shown to denote a nuclear bomb which blocks the sunlight, altogether. It is actually an overreaction which the plot shows as the much needed sheen and charisma which the series has maintained in the first two seasons, has started withering away afterwards.
The movie comprises actions which were simply needed and justifiable in the horror packed series. Likewise, the other things which are done exceptionally well is the splatter gore and so is the graphics. Although, the jury is out there, who may have difference of opinion, but the first two seasons are simply rocking and have maintained the story and actions together for the audience to feel blessed and happy. However, it wasn’t able to carry forward the kind of popularity which it carried initially. The music composed by Ramin Djawadi is soothing in terms that he knows how to uplift the mood and certain scenes. Yes, it has been quite terrific as many have simply good words to praise for the same as well.

The Strain Ending
The Strain has been a live proof of the straining father and son relationship since the first episode. Although, Eph killed Kelly Goodweather, the relationship between father and son duo was never expected to be good, however, the bond gets reformed, as it indirectly re-affirms humanity.
The story goes like this where Eph and others have a unanimous decision that in order to kill the Master and the strigoi, with the nuke they need to first lure them. As the weapon acts as a bait for them. For the task, Quinlan was the happiest to initiate engagement with the Master for the trap, but a hero has to be physically present to press the trigger. Here Fet volunteers, for the same, creates ‘eyebrows’ for the ‘Dutch’. Since the previous episodes have witnessed their relationship blossoming, and Dutch tried to convince him not to do the same, but in vain.
As the final confrontation takes place between Quinlan versus Master confrontation, Zach is there miles underground at the same place. Quinlan has been handled roughly and beaten as the Master destroyed him. However, there was one final powerful shot which showed the extent of his power which rips out the Master’s stinger. Also, stops Eph from moving further to set off the nuke by puking tons of worn into his mouth. However, in the action packed event, it is Zach who timely showcased his presence and saves humanity by setting off the nuke. The story ended with a satisfying phase of saving humanity and stopping the dangers which was going on for so long. In short, it is a tribute to the human spirit.
