Re: True Blood

My buddy told me it was pretty good.  Will have to check it out on DVD.

Re: True Blood

I think TB is one of the best written shows on tv right now!

To answer your question, I don't see that age makes any difference, in vampires or humans, as long as both are old enough to understand the consequences of their actions.

No, it was a response to someone saying that "True Blood" was a book series/show for adults, much like "Twilight" was a book series/movies for youngin's.    Nothing to do with the characters in each series, but rather trying to say that "True Blood" is a 'grown up' version of "Twilight", which I completely do not see.

Something like kids playing 'tag' being compared to "Battle Royale".  Sure, they both have a love story, expect one has sparkles and the other has people ripping out throats every other episode.

Re: True Blood

Sorry to disagree with the majority but I hated the True Blood novel ' Dead before Dark' I think it's called. I'm a hardcore Anne Rice fan though so vampire books really have to work hard to win me over lol.

But when I read the part about Elvis being a mentally challenged vampire...I just couldn't read any more lol.

Moonlight was an amazing show though! I can't get enough of it.

Re: True Blood

This television show is going to be good, The second season is going to have alot of surprises I think....

Re: True Blood

The show is better than it has any right to be considering the poorly written books it is based on.

Re: True Blood

Just got the box set of the books for my birthday, and I love them.  I love the series, and upon reading the book I once again must voice my appreciation for the folks at HBO for staying true.  I swear, had I not seen the show, I'd have loved the books.  Now reading the books, I see the characters, and whoever cast this show needs an award, they did a fantastic job.  Love the concept of coming "out of the coffin".

Re: True Blood

I've heard mixed reviews on the books, but the show is ridiculously fun.

Re: True Blood

I want that poster lol

You know how the retro 80s bands make a comeback? Thats what Id like to see happen with these 1980s B slasher movies. A comeback to the theaters/drive-ins. Not just the popular stuff. I mean, movies like Rocktober Blood. Just once, thats all I ask. lol
Just testing

Re: True Blood

Is this show any good?

Re: True Blood

I was a fan of the book series long before the TV show but its good...doesn't really follow the books too well...they went off on their own direction in season 2 but at least its interesting

Re: True Blood

i think the show is pretty good but it does jump about a bit from episode to episode possibly too much sometimes. i really liked the first episode, very good opening, i though it was actually going to be quite scary tongue

Re: True Blood

Scary ? Not really. It's a vampire drama with a lot of blood , nudity and sex.

I thought season 1 , it was feeling its way a bit by introducing all the players slowly. Season 2 was better imo , because most of the town's folks and people you already know from season 1 , that's when it got interesting with the introduction of a big bad for the season. I read that some fans thought that the maryann storyline took too long but i loved it.

Re: True Blood

usually when i put a horror movie or show on my family are outta here but we all like this seriesnot really horror but then it takes a bit for me to be scared.Cant wait for next season.As far as comparisons with Twilight which every vamp movie/show seems to be compared with these days,i like it better ,but i have a problem withthe whole vampires walkin around in daylight thing

Re: True Blood

Wait what ? The vampires in true blood don't walk outside in daylight , i think you are mixing true blood with vampire diaries.

Re: True Blood

I'm a big fan of most things vampire, but I couldn't get into the Twilight thing.  Too old, I guess.  I hate wimpy vamps.  I got through the second book, but stopped there.  Oh the other hand, when I heard that HBO was putting out a vampire series, I couldn't wait.  They always do great stuff, and I was hooked about halfway through the first episode.  I read the books recently, got a box set for my birthday, and went through all 8 in about a month and a half, loved them all.  I really dig Sookie's character in the books, and I think Anna Paquin plays her perfectly.  Vampires for grown ups, thankfully.  The teen thing is cute, but I'm a bit too far on the wrong side of high school, so they can have it, and good luck to 'em.

Re: True Blood

I do not have cable, so I didn't catch this show when it first came out. I am a big fan of Alan Ball and one of my favorite shows of all time is Six Feet Under, so I figured it had to be good. My friend is obsessed with True Blood, and after much prodding, I decided to add it to my Netflix list. Well, one episode in I was absolutely hooked. What a great show! I must admit, I tend to find Sookie very annoying, especially the way she keeps dissing my boy Bill ha ha, but all in all I really love this show and can't wait until season 2 comes out on dvd.

Elvis as a mentally challenged vampire?  Shit!  I'm missing out.  I guess I gotta watch the show now.

Re: True Blood

True Blood is one of the best shows on TV.  I HATE reality TV.  Beside, Naked Eric is one good reason to tune in every week! wink

Re: True Blood

I like the concept of this show. Its outstanding show.
