Is this gonna have a buncha corporate vampire poo poo like Blade or Underworld or whatever the gently caress? First episode was interesting except for every time they cut to the highrise vampire guy pulling the plot strings with his minions or whatever. That part was crap

The majority of vampires are like the ones in the morgue scene.

It was kind of funny how the Nazi vampire guy basically reversed his IRL make up with that scene.

And made a perfectly smooth Ken doll-like mound.

Yeah, that was kind of goofy but I think they did it that way more to get the point across than to be realistic.

If you like the kind of vampires on this show and have already read the books I would suggest the David Wellington "Laura Caxton" series of novels. He does a similar thing where vampires are out and out monsters. His series is set in a world where people know about vampires, they just think they're extinct.

I always felt that one movie that had vampires up in the alaska or wahtever, 30 days of night(?) seemed like it hinted at some really cool vampire history and civilization, but then it went nowhere.

I had fun with the movie however.

I'm going to check out your recc. I always enjoyed the necroscope versions of vampires. Those were kinda cool.

I believe you can read the first Laura Caxton book, 13 Bullets, on Wellington's website.

He's great but I don't really see how he relates to the rest of the plot yet.

Just give it some time as he's a pretty big part of the main group.

The show is realistic since the tech hacker wanted a pawned PS4 instead of Xbox.

I did like how they actually used a modern up to date console, which would be reasonable as something a teenager would want.

Is that a big rear end incinerator? In a hospital?!

Yes, hospitals need to incinerate medical waste.

It was to show some background on what's going on, the chop shop guys mentioned that their phones weren't working and the internet was down.

They also weren't talking about the entire internet all over the world, just the internet for the island of Manhattan.

The book I mentioned a while back was called The Unblemished, by Conrad Williams.

Untraditional mindcontrol vampires and whatnot. It was pretty good from what I remember. They didn't try to fit in to society or use the tools of civilization to control it, more than to just destroy and dominate or whatever.

Eh, I wouldn't really call those guys vampires. They were more like ghouls.

Kind of weird that they skipped pretty much all of The Master's backstory. Like why he's a giant dude and the meaning of the cane.

They explain his huge body in the first chapter of the first book and then the batshit angels and demons origins poo poo in the third.

What did you guys think of the Masters Nosferatu meets Voldemort face?

They might be leaving out the first part to make it more of a surprise when he switches bodies.

As for the Master's face, I thought it was fine. It was a little goofy because of his giant head but that's probably the only time we'll ever really see it that clearly so not really a big deal.

So I see they're not afraid of child murder scenes.

Well there was that dead kid at the beginning.

I kind of hope we get some behind the scenes stuff because I have to imagine the pre-production shots of people doing the vampire mouth are pretty funny.
