The Strain is one of my favorite new shows this season. David Bradley as Abraham is absolutely a Guillermo del Toro creation come to life. It was a bit difficult to locate the right pieces for this ensemble. For example, finding a simple, stylish vest with pockets for ladies came up rather empty. Why can’t women have real pockets on our vests that properly equip us for a pocket watch?
“Love, you see, is the one force that cannot be explained, that cannot be broken down to a chemical process. It is the beacon that guides us back home when no one is there, and the light that illuminates our loss. Its absence robs us all pleasure of our capacity for joy. It makes our nights darker and days gloomier. But when we find love no matter how wrong, how sad, or how terrible we cling to it, it gives us our strength, it holds us upright. It feeds on us and we feed on it. Love is our grace. Love is our downfall.”
