FX debuts "The Strain" on Sunday (10 p.m.), a horror series about well, a little of everything. Based on a series of books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, "The Strain" combines the elements of an outbreak with vampires and zombies, with a dash of "Alien" chest-bursting tossed in. Plus, lead Corey Stoll, who plays an epidemiologist, is sporting a killer wig. "The Strain" is entertaining in an almost campy way, but also plenty gross (billboards promoting the show were removed in Los Angeles after complaints from motorists), so it's maybe not for the squeamish.
