The Strain Season 1 Episode 11: The Third Rail
5 second plot: Eph, Fet, Nora and Setrakian are on the move. The plan is to take The Master down as swiftly as possible. But there are a lot of 'munchers' they have to get passed first. Eph's son Zack is left in the shop with Nora's demented mother. Oh, and Gus, the escaped criminal, goes home to check on his mom and brother. And it's, well..., not good.
5 second review: There's some awesome claustrophobic shit going on in this episode. And some genuine great scares. But also a couple of things that bothered me: like them walking around like tourists in the tunnels. And the way The Master looks like... I'm sorry, but that is a seriously bad make-up job. He doesn't look scary, he looks like a guy in a rubber suit straight out of a monster movie from the '40s. It's ridiculous.
