TrueBlood, show on HBO ...

anybody watch it's premiere tonight? It was da bomb! It was really well done. I love Allen Ball.

It was suspenseful and I've read the books and knows what happens.

It got off to a great start tonight.

Re: TrueBlood, new show on HBO ...

It's based on the Southern Vampire series books. The lead character is Sookie Stackhouse. It's set in Louisiana and vampires have legal status because the Japanese developed a synthetic blood that they can drink. So since they no longer had to kill people to get their blood supply they came out into the open.

Sookie is a telepath so the locals thinks she's weird. She's a waitress in a bar and one night Bill the vampire comes in. Sookie saves him from being drained of his blood (it sells on the black market) from some locals.

Oh Sookie has a brother that is a slut and he slept with this fangbanger (human who lets vamps bite on them) well she turns up dead and now he is a suspect.

anyway, that's episode one in a nutshell.

Re: TrueBlood, new show on HBO ...

I just watched the show last night on Demand and OMG I love it. Its a great concept and fun to watch. Sookie's brother is a slut but damn if he isn't hott!!!!!!!

Anyway, its a great show and I will be watching it. But omg if Sookie says "Y'all" anymore, I'll kill her lol! Oh and my favorite character has to be Tara. She is so funny, as is Lafayette. Haha its a great show.

Re: TrueBlood, new show on HBO ...

Lafayette is hilarious..

Tara I can't get into because she's different than her character in the book. However, when she was fussing her boss out it was funny.

and I say y'all all the time too!

Re: TrueBlood, new show on HBO ...

yes well that is the one complaint all those actors are not even American much less southern so the accents are a little strained.

Rocky what happens you can pm me I just can't take not knowing. Is it me or do the bar owner and Sookies brother look exactly alike? I had a hard time keeping their characters seperate.

Re: TrueBlood, new show on HBO ...

Just saw it and loved it Would watch again next episode.

The bar owner and Sookie's brother doesn't look a lot alike to me Maybe that's because I know the actor plays the brother from Home and Away (Australian soap series)


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: TrueBlood, new show on HBO ...

i watched in On Demand this morning and really liked it. I will definitely be watching future episodes. I am not familiar with the Southern Vampire series. How close does the first episode stick to the book?

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

It was pretty close to the book. The biggest difference is tara, they completely changed that character.
