A fucking awesome trilogy written by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro is now available on Hulu as a TV series. Chuck Hogan wrote the screen play and its awesome. Anyone else watching this or read the books?

Nope it was a book first based off of several different cultures, mostly eastern European, versions of vampires. I think they made it into a tv show because of all the Zombie craze. Best part is, they are following the book. Not quite as depressing as the book but they are following it fairly well.
