Can't say I cared for the hissing vamps at the end - that just seemed cheesy.
It seemed at odds with the rest of the show. The threat from the vampires is certainly there, but the menace was a bit more subtle; the car crash, the trailer "accident", the general tense atmosphere. That last scene was right out of those terrible low budget 90s "hip" vampire flicks that were once everywhere.

I like this show so far. I can't say I'm all in though. It feels like it carries equal potential to be a solid show with lots of depth and social commentary; or to go off the rails completely.

These threads need polls!
