I saw the preview at the movie theatre where the girl slurps the blood off the cut on her fingertip. :shuffle: I'll pass.

Love this show! I'll have to DL the shows, though. I have't read the books yet, but I've always wanted to...

Oh, the books are amazing! I prefer the first 4 books to the last 5, because after those ones it starts to lose focus on vampires and focus more on other forms of supernaturality (though vamps definitely play a huge role still).

I think that's the 2nd movie in the Twilight series.

IMO the best description of True Blood would be blood, sex, drugs and vampires, all with southern drawls (and lots of nudity).

I don't watch this but hear a lot about it from my sister, who's co-owner of one of the big True Blood websites. :)

I've read the Southern Vampire series since Harris began it. I haven't seen True Blood. I'm always unhappy when there are fundamental rewrites of characters on tv/movie versions of books. Should I buy the dvd of season 1 or will it make me go postal?

I'm similar in the way that I cant stand when people change something for the sake of tv/film. The character changes did annoy me. I still like the show though, because Sookie and Bill are pretty much the same and the show follows their storyline properly for the most part.

There are some differences. Like Sookie is basically a size 2 instead of a size 10, and the woman who plays Pam definitely doesn't look 19, but I think they did an awesome job with the casting (IMO the best casting was in Eric - fits the description to a T). They completely changed Tara, but IMO they kind of needed to do that to give Sookie a female companion, and Tara is now a major player.

The first season is basically the same as the book. I've heard the 2nd season will be loosly based on the book (ie, they go to Dallas) but other than that it has its own stories. Which I kind of like, because even for the avid fans of the book, you won't know what's coming.

Thanks. I just can't decide. So they found an actor to play Eric who looks like a huge gorgeous Viking? Yum.

Close enough. My only complaint is that the actor didn't seem to capture the humor of Eric based on the books, probably because the director hadn't bothered to read them either. :lol:

I didn't have a problem with the changes in Tara and even Layfette. They were minor characters in the books and bringing them to the forefront didn't change Sookie or Bill's storylines, except the whole Tara and Sam thing just didn't work for me. They should leave Sam alone.

I'm not certain about Jason's involvement in the Fellowship of the Sun this season. That's a significant departure of character and plot. I'll reserve judgement and wait to see what they do with the story.

Well, he's Swedish and huge at any rate. :lol:

Is there any point in watching the second season without having seen the first? Is there a quick way to catch up on who's who and what happened?
