Trueblood Season 1...

We just finished watching the first season of Trueblood. After the first episode. I really wasn't hooked, but into the third episode I wanted to watch them all! Most of you know, I love vampires, but being a traditionalist, it is difficult to watch some shows/movies that allow vampires to do things I disagree with. However, Trueblood is so well written and acted, that I find myself understanding their actions. First and foremost, vampires can't have sex. They are dead and you need blood flowing through every organ of your body to be intimate. As the vampire Bill said, "We don't breath." No oxygen, their bodies are dead, and no blood in their dead organs... can't have sex. Enough of my ranting. The show has the best comic relief with a mixture of gore/blood on TV today. The characters are unique and capture your interest. Mind reading, shape shifters, murderer, vampires, and red necks... what more could you ask for. We were told about this show by a friend of Tina's who absolutely loves it. After watching the first season, I can't wait to see season 2. The writing of this show is outstanding. The stories are interesting, funny, and leave you begging for more. Trying to pick a favorite character is impossible because all of them bring so much to the show. Tina's is Tara, the black woman with so much anger and attitude. If I had to pick one, it would be the vampire Bill. He wants to mainstream into human society and drinks "Trueblood" Trueblood is a synthetic blood invented to keep humans safe from vampire attacks. Mainstream vampires are trying to coexist with humans and bring the vampire discrimination to an end. However, all vampires don't follow the "rules." Also, many humans don't believe the intentions of the mainstream vampires are honorable. Distrust, and bigotry exist among both groups. It is a social comment on the way we are today, just with a vampire twist. The show is so original in all aspects and I absolutely love it. If you have Netflix, you can get all of season 1's DVDs. Otherwise your local video store may have them. Season 2 has not been released yet, but when it is, we will be watching!

Mind-reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin, in a Golden Globe-winning role) dives into a complicated relationship when she falls for vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) in a world where the undead live openly and drink synthetic blood. Trying to improve their image and legitimize their finances, the out-of-the-coffin bloodsuckers hire PR firms and contribute to influential Republican politicians, among other tactics.
