Quotes

Jim Kent: What is that smell?
Nora Martinez: Ammonia discharge. Like guano.
Ephraim Goodweather: Ammonia discharge. Like guano.
Nora Martinez: And Bishop's body.
Jim Kent: That's enough. This is disgusting. Just call it in. God damn it, just call it in. This thing just shot a six foot python out of its mouth, its dick is gone, and it just squirted a shit-load of shit all over the table! You got your hands everywhere - what the hell is going on?

Good solid episode...except for some flaws
6 August 2014 | by Brettyboy007See all my reviews

Episode 4 of The Strain continued the story lines from episode 3. Eph, Nora, and Jim investigate the body of the pilot..with unexpected discoveries. Ansel is still struggling from becoming a full fledged vampire. We also see Gus again and his family.

The episode built on from episode 3. The only things I didn't like was I really want them to advance more on Gus's story. This may be partly due to be having read a lot of the first book and more on Gus's story. It just seems slow on the show with his friend and him meeting those guys for the Mercedes SUV.

I also am annoyed with Nora's character. Let me just say this episode broke away her character from how she is in the book. She joins with Eph and Abraham. She does not appear scared, but her character in the show is just weird.

I am excited for Sunday's episode. From the previews, it look like we'll get some Abraham back story.
