Since we’re all post happy about Vamps this past week, has anyone seen HBO’s True Blood?
Cause I have, all 12, one hour episodes within in 3 days! Yeah it was pretty intense. What else is there to do in the suburbs of Detroit, MI during Thanksgiving weekend besides HBO On-Demand? I’ve been known for obsessively watching TV shows on DVD or On-Demand, such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Californication, Dexter, and so on, and currently am obsessively netflixing Six Feet Under. There’s nothing more satisfying then having the next episode at your finger tips.
I had never seen True Blood until this past week, after hearing great reviews from one of my roommates and various viral marketing throughout NYC sparked my interest.
TB turned out to be entertaining, but pretty much the most annoying show I’ve seen in a while. Short of telling you about the plot (go read on the website), this season was based on a who-dun-it murder caper infused with blood thirsty vamps and back-woods yokels, set in the outskirts of Louisiana. If it weren’t for the sex scenes & some vampire fantasy stories, I don’t think this show would have much substance. There are a few good gore scenes and all the vampire scenes are really campy. Then there’s a love story between an innocent (read: virgin) southern girl and an ex confederate soldier turned Vampire, which was also quite irritating. It was kind of disappointing all in all. And since this was made by Alan Ball, the creator of Six Feet Under and writer of American Beauty I had high expectations. So, yet another vamp let down. This show sucks.
