"True Blood" has got to be among the best vampire shows ever made. It's funny, witty, sometimes violent and bloody, and very sexy. And yes, the "18" rating is deserved due to a few very explicit scenes. This is no "Twilight" --- it's for adults ... ;o)
The acting is very good, and the same goes for the writing and directing. The first two seasons of "True Blood" loosely follow the story from the first 2 books in Charlaine Harris's "Sookie Stackhouse" series. Some changes have been made, but I personally didn't mind. I've read all the books, and I have enjoyed the first two seasons of the show as well (and am looking forward to season 3).
Every season follows one major storyline with many smaller ones thrown in. The characters are likable and original, and the show is just as likely to scare you as make you laugh out loud. There is lots of drama, and some of it is a little outrageous, but hey --- at least the show never gets boring ... :o)
Over the past few years "True Blood" has not only achieved cult status, but has also won several awards (such as a Golden Globe for "Best Actress in a Drama Series" for Anna Paquin), and has been nominated for even more --- including a Golden Globe as "Best Drama Series" (which no other show of this genre has ever managed to achieve).
In the end, you're gonna have to make up your own mind as to whether or not you like "True Blood" --- all I can tell you is that it's definitely worth watching! For me, this is one of my favorite-ever tv-shows, and I'm not even such a huge fan of supernatural television shows ... ;o)
The first season won countless awards including a Golden Globe and an Emmy and cause a lot of hype for Season 2. It has recently been confirmed not only that Season 3 will be aired on HBO June 13th 2010 but also that there will be a 4th Season.
Trust me it is worth a look and if your sitting on the fence and wondering what they hype is all about then watch it you wont be disappointed.
NO the series is not for everyone as the very dimwitted view of a certain prior reviewer will show however take it from someone who has actually taken the time to sit and actually watch the product he reviews that for me it was something i enjoyed watching and was glad i brought.
As a big fan of Vampire novels, having read the Vampire Chronicles, Dracula and various other vampire stories i would have to disagree with C.pusey's review.
The script is Original, fresh and well writen, Granted there are some seems that very little happens in but your focus is then drawn to the strong Characters on screen, How someone could fail to be entertained by Lafiette is impossible.
The series is based Loosly on the books by Charlaine Harris but are very different, the series is much darker than the books.
Yes this is vastly different from ever Popular Twilight series, as this is not made for teenage girls but with target audience of Adults and deservedly has an 18 certificate.
There are various bits of Vampire folklore taken from other sources, those familiar with the Anne Rice novels will pick up on this immediatly, but even Charlaine Harris makes constant reference to Anne Rice in the books so that's not surprising.
All in all this is an amazing TV show and well worth a watch whether your a Vamp Fan or just after a fun and entertaining Programe to watch.
In the meantime I got to see the Twilight movies and bits of the Vampire Diaries and other vampire tv/films.
Then, sometime last year, I watched the first episode of season 1 True Blood and fell asleep halfway and didnt get to watch the rest until yesterday while recuperating from an arm fracture.
It was about 11pm and I intended only to watch a couple of episodes to knock myself out but was hooked by the time I got to episode 3 and had to force myself to shut down after episode 6. Needless to say, I had to watch the rest of season 1 today and did!
'Great series' is an understatement- I definitely enjoyed this so much more than the Twilight movies and wondered why it took me so long to get down to this truly fab Southern Vamp series!
Anyway, as of last night I'm a fan of 'True Blood' and look forward to getting Seasons 2-5 on dvd.
