Yes. I'm really digging what I've seen so far. Its refreshing to not have to deal with stylish leather-clad kung fu vampires like in "Blade" and "Underworld". It reminds me a lot of a film called "Near Dark" probably one of the best vampire films I've ever.

I actually think it's not too bad.  The main actress is such a bad actress though.. it gets a bit irritating.  Also, I hate when the fangs are on that part of the teeth.  I think they look a lot better on the 3rd set of teeth.

It is really interesting.  You just have to keep an open mind when you watch it.

edit: Thursday the 25th they're playing all 3 episodes back to back if you want to watch them.

I'm trying to like it because I enjoy that genre. But it has not wowed me yet. To many script and technical holes, and not any real genius, yet. And the sex, even though the producer said it would be gritty and raw, is just gratuitous and horny. Will keep my eye on it some more. smile

Ya, I am trying to like it as well.  It isn't great it's just interesting.  I definitely agree about the sex though.  It's ummm... intense haha

Fairly interesting.  Don't like Anna Paquin?  I think she's okay.  The black chick has an annoying accent. 

I have it on TIVO.

well keep in mind, some of the people from that area either have a realy southern draw (think Britany Spears and her fam) or they have some french or creole in their blood, so they have a more cajun accent....or in this case they may have a bit of Vjuice in their blood so they sound vampish! LMAO

oh yes, I forgot about the barking in his sleep, but what does the dog have to do with it? Sookie has a close bond with her cat too....

I don't get HBO, so cannot comment on the show, but I have read every one of the Sookie Stackhouse "True Blood" novels by Charlaine Harris.  Anna Paquin is about the last actress I visualize in the role.

I hope HBO does not do to True Blood what they did to Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. sad

I love the new show, but I'll have to agree -- Tara's accent is not realistic for me.

Anna Paquin, well, I'm lukewarm. Too hard to tell if she's really bad, or if her character is just written to be a bit cheesy on purpose.

LOVING Steven Moyer though.

As for the gratuitous sex...well wtf guys, it IS HBO. Have you seen "Tell me You Love Me" or "Big Love"

Best actor so far, would have to be Sam and the worst IMO is Jason. Can't wait, the new epi comes on tonight!

oh yes so sad "tell me you love me" is not coming on anymore sad I was really into that show...."Big love" was great too....both shows I could watch with my boyfriend, there are not to many shows like that these days... I have yet to get him to see True Blood...i'm sure he'll dig it as much as I do though wink

I absolutely agree.  She sounds like an L.A. actress doing a bad impersonation of a Louisiana accent (that she learned by listening to a cheap how-to CD).

I watched the first two or three episodes and gave up on the show.

haha.. I can't stand the casting for the female lead... terrible actress, not attractive IMO, and does one of the worst accents I've heard.

Being from Texas, I get really irritated with the lowrate playhouse "Southern accent".. which tends to be a bizarre composite of Texan, Cajun, Georgian, and hillbilly, with a bit of Gone WIth the Wind mixed in for flavor..

Other than that, I really like the idea for the series, and I thought the 1st episode was fun.  Look forward to more, but I just cancelled HBO... not sure if it's worth renewing for 1 decent show.

Lafyette is a badass. Dunno why I didnt realize he was Tara's brother.

And I'm so dense, because I didnt even suspect Sam until EPI 4. He's totally a shape shifter. I always wondered why the dog and Sam were never seen in the same frame.
