So, my new obession is HBO's True Blood. What I expected to see during a reluctant viewing of the first episode was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer type Supernatural kinda thing. What I got was far, far better than I could ever have imagined.

It's a vampire story, but with unquestionable realism that doesn't leave you attempting to suspend you disbelief further than need be. The clash between the recently exposed vampire race, who have lived for years in modest recluse, against the prejudiced 'human' community is reflected in the religious versus supersticious backdrop of rural Louisiana. Of couse comparisons are drawn with racial discrimination of black people, and political disgretion between the opposing parties of Pro-Vampire supporters and Anti-Vampire campaigners.

In the middle of all these crazy juxtapositions is Anna Paquin as the misleadingly sweet, suprisingly intellegent, and ultimately alltruistic heroine, Soukie Stackhouse.

As you may well be able to tell, I would love to go on talking about the show, however I figure it's someone else's go.

Anyway, so yeah. Totally recommend it, even if you, like me previously, don't even like the whole vampire fantasy genre. It's not really demographically focused on teenagers, as it is based on a book(s?) and has been interpreted as an adult series with adult content. It is extremely graphic and there is a lot of sex in it. But it is just awesome, really. I love it.

Yep.

I missed the first couple of episodes (I don't have HBO) but then my friend started to tape it for me and I've kind of gotten addicted. Bill<3
Dude, Suki's brother is SUCH a jerk. I don't care if it was the V that made him that much of a jerk. that doesn't mean he's any less responsible for his behavior. and there is something freaky going on with the bartender...werewolf, maybe? I mean, he DID do that weird sniffing the blankets of the dead chick thing... I think HE's the one killing all the chicks. Yeah, I'm kinda hooked, especially after what happened in the last episode Shocked

I know a lot about what's prolly gonna happen in the show because my mom's read most of the books and has told me some of the stuff that goes on.
I really like the show though, and I've just started reading the books, which are also quite enjoyable.
Bill is really interesting and Sookie's cool, plus she has a badass name. I love how she can hear everyone's thoughts. :]

AND he was in the middle of the woods running-naked. and he lied to the cop guy about why. something's fishy about that guy... I can never remember his name...what is it? I think it's Sam...

Season 2 just started here on hbo.
Yay omg.
I think the first one was better though, this Godric thing wasn't very inspired (i think). Yet it's still better than any other vampire show i've seen so far.
