What I’m talking about
I’m so ready to fangirl after hearing what FX Networks is bringing to SDCC!
This year they are bringing Legion, the Strain (NOOOO it’s the final season), Archer, Atlanta and American Horror Story as they take over the Hilton Bayfront Park at San Diego Comic Con
Make sure if your a fan of the Strain to come see a special sneak peek screening on July 21 with the first two episodes from 7 – 9PM.
This years FXhibition is going to be even bigger than last year with interactive experiences that will have you on the edge of your seat! The installation is from July 20-23 ready to keep fans of FX Network ready to tune in and drop in living out fanboy/fangirl dreams .. or is that horrors the Strain is on the lawn too! I was hooked on Legion after episode three so am very curious about the Sessions: The Legion Mixed Reality Experience that will be powered by Microsoft HoloLens and bring the series to life or nightmare. You will be ‘David Hailer’ using the HoloLens to be a part of his world and test his world. You can make reservations beginning July 17th at LegionSessions.com
American Horror Story fans will get a chance to get a tease of the upcoming season with the larger than life AHS Zoetrope that promises to show the series in a new chilling and (am sure) horrifying way.

If you haven’t been watching Guillermo Del Toro and Carlton Cuse horror series The Strain you’ve missed out on one of the best series on TV. You can watch either streaming on Hulu or grab a disc/blu ray at local retailers.
I found this ‘vampire’ series fascinating because it sort of fits with my belief that vampires are scary as F! I mean I love the idea of being young forever but I’ve never thought they’d be beautiful and the idea of bringing blood is soo gross. I mean I’ve never seen a comic book or movie where people talk about rather vampires could get STDs or AIDS especially when they were humans.
The Strain handles the idea that humans would no longer be at the top of the food chain in a scary way. I mean who would really believe that Vampires would exist and that they were killing people. I mean the average person would not believe ‘their own lying’ eyes if they saw an attack or would run screaming (I know I would run like a scalded cat).
If the Master offered to turn you (a higher Vamp) would you say yes? Or would you be team human fighting against the scourge?
