Watching True Blood

After years of wanting to see this series ( I don't have HBO) I finally rented Disc 1 of the first season. Everyone I talked too and who knows me said I would enjoy it. So last night Harry and I sat down to watch episode 1. Harry wasn't sold on it yet but said he would watch the first episode and then let me know if he wanted to continue or not.

We watched it and then a few moments later we watched the second episode and would have continued to watch if there were more then 2 episodes on that disc.

Needless to say I LOVED IT.

Though it's been out for a while I didn't really know much about it.. I mean I knew it was about vampires and that the main character Sookie was telepathic. But that was about it. I didn't know the Vampires "Came out of the Caskets" and were fighting for civil rights. Which was AWESOME because it pretty much mirrors gay people and how they are fighting for their rights, minus the undead, killing people part. :) Lot's of blood, which I expected and didn't mind. Lot's of sex which I don't mind or course.. but I guess I'm not use to it in TV shows, though I did watch Sex and the City a bit. But the one thing that really surprised me about the first few episodes was the humor.. both Harry and I laughed out loud, though out both episodes. There was some great dialogue.. and I liked how you cared about the characters so quickly. The main characters were charming, funny and charismatic. I mean we've only seen two episode but when Sookie was getting . attacked you just wanted Bill to come and rescue her and kill that couple. Which he does in the next episode but man I was hoping he would make them suffer a bit.

Anyways... I'm bummed that there are only two episodes per disc and that it will take at least 2 days to return the disk and get a new one.. I might have to go out and buy me the DVD's for my Birthday unless I can find a friend who has them already.

I can't wait to see more of this series.

  1. My girlfriend made me watch season 1 of this show, not a big fan. I didn't really like the characters much (except for Lafayette and Tara).

    It got a bit interesting at the end of season 1, so if you liked the first episodes I'm sure you will enjoy the rest of it, as it gets better =)

    Guess I'll have to start watching season 2 this week.
