“The Strain is about, according to FX, “a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.”
“Based on the series of books from del Toro and Chuck Hogan, The Strain has a central character who is basically the ancient king of vampires. His name is — mood music, please — the Master.
“It’s also about Nazis and the end of the world. It has Samwise Gamgee, too.
“Oh, and an old vampire hunter named Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who is now in his 80s and works in a New York pawn shop but once was a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp and had a chance to kill the Master but failed.
“He’s got this really awesome sword to do it with, too.”
