I started watching Season 1 over a month ago via Itunes and got instantly addicted to it - what a great show and it took me 1 episode to get hooked. What makes it really stand out for me and makes it so addictive to watch is the casting: there isn't a bad actor in the bunch--and they are all believable as Southern archetypes.

Nelsan Ellis as the short order cook/drug dealer Lafayette and Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin as the romantic leads give mesmerizing performances.

True Blood is an interesting set of stories by Faulkner, who says that the only thing really worth writing about (or thinking about, by extension) is the human heart in conflict with itself.
The Southern United States depicted in True Blood is conflict embodied--you are a supposed to be a good Christian, and follow the rules of an established society, but you live in the middle of a swamp so dense and wild that it believably could be home to minions of Satan, like vampires.

It's a lot to think about. If you are one of those artistic/professional types with too much to do, don't start watching this; it becomes an obsession.

Subsequently I have now purchased series 2 - 4 and am enjoying immersing myself into the series.

I'd describe True Blood as Buffy for grown ups, the violence is more graphic, sex scenes raunchier, comedy darker and story lines longer. It's thoroughly addictive and great fun, if you grew up on dawsons creek, angel and various American soaps, this is one you can enjoy without feeling like its aimed purely at teenagers.

Stuck in bed for a week with flu and watched all four seasons back to back! Including most of the 'extras'. Now I can follow season 5, currently showing on TV. I had seen most of season 1 when it was first shown, but for one reason or another (husband not really in to it) I didn't persevere. Now I'm back on track and so glad I tried again. Dark, funny, sexy. It is all I had hoped for, and then some. Yes, some of the writing is a bit weak in places, but overall it's fantastic. Love Pam, Jessica and Lafeyette, and could watch Alcide all day long. Thank goodness HBO has committed to season 6. As others have said, waiting "SUCKS!".

Watched on TV but missed a few but as it looked good decided to buy the set. Glad I did. Really great cast and although it's about vampires and werewolves, the old adage of what works don't break, there are some really good story lines. The makers can get away with it as set in the Deep South where, if it is to be believed, anything can and does happen

Well, what can I say? This is a very sexually charged DVD series, and contains graphic scenes right from the start. It is set in a little Southern American town of Bontemps, where lots of strange things happen! There are loads of good characters in it although I do find the lead 'Sookie' very irritating but there are plenty of other folk to keep it interesting and spice it up. And lots of fast paced action to keep you entertained! I have only watched the first 2 series so far, but am happy to watch the next 2 in the set. There are some good laugh out loud and tongue in cheek moments in it too... I really don't think it takes itself too seriously although there are certainly some darker moments.

I really feel that the basis of much of the character and drama is based on the crazy teenage years... hormones flying around, absent parents, irresponsibility, the loss of rules and regulations (the local police department is laughable), drink and drugs ('V'), trusting people yet never quite knowing what they are capable of, no limits, no boundaries.... Of course it is far fetched, but there is a lot of recklessness and emotion driving the stories which makes it almost like the town that has no parents. Only poor Sam the bar owner is the closest thing to a 'responsible adult'! Great series, would heartily recommend.

Slightly dissapointed the series was not faithfull to the book.
The casting was nothing like the books descriptions and the story line was also unfaithful.
Don't buy it just because you like the books as dissapointment will follow.

I started watching True Blood less than a year ago, although initially I didn't think that it was a television show that would appeal to me. On the surface,without watching it, my initial thoughts were "okay, so its x rated vampires......." and i wasn't overly interested. But my friend insisted to me that I would like it, and she was right.

The writing of this show is immense, the one liners and witty dialogue just works on so many levels, and the most interesting thing to me about True Blood - is that they live in mainstream society. So, instantly the "this is a secret" plotline is gone, so they have to work around that. Each charactr is layered, and so three dimensional, there are no filler characters.

Often the lead female character fails to impress in supernatural/dark/vampire type tv shows or films, but Sookie is full of spunk, attitude and determination with the sensitive site too. And the chemistry between Sookie and Bill, and Sookie and Eric is electric throughout.

Despite the fact that Charlaine Harris's books were written prior to Twilight, the best way I can describe this show is, its Twilight for Adults but 10000X times better!
