The season premiere was last night and once again, it looks like it's going to be a doozy this season. SPOILER: Sooo....what were Sooki and Lafayette thinking when they made Tara into the one thing she hates? MAN I can't wait to see her as an angry vamp. Do you think Eric and Bill will really leave BonTemps? Eric and his sister...um...yeah...Jessica and Jason. Oh, the drama! I love it. I can't wait to see what the rest of the season has in store. I'm a little bummed that they don't show you what's coming next week but, I guess that's to promote their HBO GO site. What did you guys think?

I really liked the premiere. It is my guess that Sooki will somehow restore Tara's mind (she looks like a mindless creature in the coming attractions) like she did for Eric. As Eric and Bill are 2 of the 3 real main characters of the story, they will always be there and if they leave it will be temporary. I wondered why they just couldn't have a preview for next week and then have the coming weeks as a separate preview.

I know! That kinda annoyed me but, then I thought it was probably to promote HBO GO.

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.

About this tv show

Wiki




Thanks to a Japanese scientist's invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures "coming out of the coffin." Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the jury is still out. Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), however, knows how it feels to be an outcast. "Cursed" with the ability to listen in on people's thoughts, she's also open-minded about the integration of vampires — particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year-old living up the road. But as Sookie is drawn into a series of mysteries surrounding Bill's arrival in Bon Temps, that tolerance will be put to the test. 

A new drama from 'Six Feet Under' creator Alan Ball, True Blood delves into the meticulously-crafted world of novelist Charlaine Harris. Described by the Emmy®-winning Ball as "popcorn for smart people" and featuring a colorful cast of local misfits, 'True Blood' promises an intense ride.
