Sookie & Bill
HBO continues their run of amazingly high quality series (however slowly and painfully far apart they seem to debut).  The buzz about True Blood hit me before it even aired, however I was a cynic from the start.  I'm a pretty rabid cult follower of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and figured there was little chance anyone could capture that camp and wit again.  Turns out, this series has ENTIRELY different aspirations than the Buffy franchise.  This show is about a much higher …

I've had an odd experience with this show. I was intrigued by the pilot, and recall watching the first few episodes; but then, somewhere along the line, I stopped watching and had no incentive to catch up. The show wasn't bad, the storylines simply didn't interest me.      Then, suddenly, I start seeing promotions for the second season and think, what the hell? It's summer, there isn't anything else on, I'll give it a try. Then, magically, I fell in love with the show. This season …

Probably inspired by Anne Rice's novels, this new version of vampire lore is far more interesting than Blade, Underworld, Twilight, Buffy, etc.  It takes place in a small town in Louisianna and has a real Cajun feel to it.  The premise is that vampires have admitted their existance so a blood substitute (True Blood) has been developed and sold wherever beverages are sold.      The first season centered on a vampire named Bill moving into a Louisianna town and he fascinates …

The first season was awesome. The second season, not so much. This show is unravelling fast in my opinion.

Remember how Heroes, the perfect melding of X-Men with cable-quality soap, imploded on itself? Remember how "Save the cheerleader, save the world" became "Kill the cheerleader, save the show?" It was one of those shocking TV betrayals, like when The Simpsons became crap, that made you want to withdraw any support you ever gave the show. Let's just hope the circus doesn't show up in True Blood - that will be the final nail in coffin (no pun intended).   …

More divergent from the original written work with each season, and yet still keeps the original flavor and appeal. Great visuals and action

True Blood Blu-ray box art
 Ever since I was a kid, I always had a fascination with everything vampires.  In High School, I couldn't get enough of them.  I bought all the popular (and unpopular) vampire films like Blade, John Carpenters Vampires, Dracula, Underworld and many others.  I always enjoyed reading vampire lore and doing research on the subject and even if vampires don't exist, their "history" and mythology always fascinated me.  Of course there have been some not so great vampire renditions …

Seriously the Best Thing to Happen to Television since the X-Files.

Watch the episodes in order! Its very important to not just watch some of them then start again. Its wayy better to watch it from the start.

Without a doubt, my favorite show ever!

I wanted to like this show, but there was too much stuff in it that just wasn't necessary or appropriate for me.

The best miniseries I've seen in a long while, and it doesn't even need gunfights & explosions to manage this. Seductively addicting TV!

True Blood
I was determined to resist HBO's True Blood, a Southern Gothicky romp through Bon Temps, Louisiana, where, thanks to the invention of synthetic blood, vampires have "come out of the coffin" to mainstream with humans. One such creature of the night is Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a 173 year-old reluctant vampire who has all the candor of a good heart but the physical attributes of the netherworld. Bill is enchanted by Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Pacquin), a waitress at Merlotte's, the town watering …

TRUE BLOOD is an excellent adaptation of the first book in the Sooki Stackhouse series. Where the book feels somewhat chick-litty and light, the dark, Southern, and succulent adaptation of the book to the TRUE BLOOD series is satisfying and entertaining. The series gave a great more substance to the characters. I was especially enamored of the way they fleshed out the characters of Jason Stackhouse, Tara Thornton, and Lafayette Reynolds. It's a sad day when one of them has to go, which I'm …

If we couldn't record this show on Sunday nights, my boyfriend would quit his job- that's how addicted we are to it! HBO does it once again!
Quick Tip by . August 24, 2009
clever, well casted one hour drama that satisfies our need for vampire lore and gory entertainment.
Quick Tip by . August 23, 2009
Fantastic show that realizes the human fascination with vampires in an "could be possible" kind of way.
Quick Tip by . August 21, 2009
Best Show on TV right now, PERIOD.
Quick Tip by . August 21, 2009
the time slot kills this one for me. Sunday night i'm looking relax and chill, too much violence and drama for my Sunday night.
