All in all, it's not a bad first season for a TV series. Actually, I'm somewhat impressed with how well the show flows from one episode to the next despite it belonging to no single genre. What helps True Blood is its unusual flavor (no pun intended) combining Southern small town drama with dark comedy, mystery, horror, and large helping of sex. The show's wonderful opening sequence sums it up pretty well. You've got your civil rights allegory (vampirism as a parable for the social …

I know I'm behind the times. I just finished watching True Blood: The Complete First Season (HBO Series) on Saturday and it's a good show. Personally, I like Twilight and The Vampire Diaries better, but True Blood is fun way to spend a weekend.

Pros: A unique, original series, with engaging characters and plots...     Cons: ...it's just so damn addicting, though that's not really a con     The Bottom Line: Think of True Blood as the adult's version of Twilight: a series of sexy, hilarious, suspenseful fun.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. I can blame one of my best friends for getting me hooked on True Blood.  I …

Pros: Great cast, original ideas added, sexy, bloody, and freakin' fun     Cons: Only if you don't like excessive swearing, blood, or sex     The Bottom Line: Ok.  I know I'm on the bandwagon.  Except now I know why I'm staying on the bandwagon.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. I work at a bookstore (at least I did *sigh*).  I read all the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse novels.  …

"True Blood"    Bloody Good    Amos Lassen      Charlaine Harris wrote a number of vampire stories set in the southern United States and Alan Ball adapted them for television for this HBO series, "True Blood". This is the kind of show that could have dismally failed because to many the whole vampire thing is somewhat cliché but it doesn't. It not only is better than so many others but it creates a whole genre.   Set …

The first season was so great, and left me wanting so much more that I picked the series up to read while I wait for season two. The characters are superb, and I like that the series focused as much on minor characters as main (unlike the books) because all of the characters are complex and interesting. Yes, even Jason, once you dig below the surface. This show has everything; romance, mystery, horror, fantasy, sex, supernatural beings, humor... the list could go on. I was so heavily engaged and …

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 …
