The Strain "By Any Means" Review: Apocalypse Acknowledged - The ... - TV.com - TV.com

The Strain S02E02: "By Any Means"

The Strain is one wacky show that's difficult to get a handle on, and it's not unusual for an episode to jump around from great, okay, and terrible over the course of its hour. That was the case in the Season 2 premiere , and it's also the case in "By Any Means." But I'm enjoying this balance of things better than I was in Season 1. Hey, no child custody hearings, right? Well, instead it will be vampire vs. human custody hearings, which, let's face it, is a vast improvement over the bureaucratic nonsense of Season 1.

But it's probably time to stop watching The Strain for the story—perhaps it was time for that a while ago—and just embrace the madness that's emerging in Season 2, like, oh, I dunno, bloodhound blind child vampires and their neck-snapping den mother? You might be interested in the Satrakian flashbacks or Eldritch Palmer's food distribution centers or the ridiculous romance between Dutch and Visiliy, but no part of The Strain 's plot has really paid off with anything so far. No, give me worm vomit and infected test subjects and those sightless vampire tykes that crawl around like spiders.

But better than Season 1 isn't saying much, and the problem with The Strain remains that it doesn't really have an identity of its own because there's no core. Visiliy and Dutch have so little to do so far this season that they were shoehorned into an awful skinny-dipping and makeout scene that didn't feel earned between the two out of anything but random horniness. Satrakian's character is being reverse engineered through time-consuming flashbacks rather than paying attention to him in the present or making him anything but a real grumpy coot who may or may not be losing his mind. And there's no sensible balance between Eph the vampire-killing hero and Eph the nerdy scientist, with the latter dominating Season 2 so far (and to be fair, the science portion is...
