I recently moved and I now have HBO and Showtime and all that good stuff, so this weekend I watched the first four episodes of True Blood and I love it! It's like Twilight for grown ups!
Based on a series of books by Charlaine Harris the basic idea is that Japan created synthetic blood, which allowed Vampires to "come out". The story centers around Sookie, a human living in Bon Temps, Louisiana (because really is there a better place in America for a vampire story?) who is telepathic (Edward?) and Bill, a vampire, who comes into the bar where Sookie works. So far their relationship is a lot of innuendo and dancing around, but in a way that makes you itchy for more.
There are a lot of subplots revolving around the main pair, a lot of which involve some pretty graphic material of both a sexual and a violent nature, but it fits in with the idea of the show. I'm loving this show and feel much less ashamed about my love than I did with Twilight. I can't wait for next Sunday and I'll be looking out for the books too!
