I have been very much looking forward to the start of the second season this Sunday.

I got into this one late in the season last year but caught up on all of the episodes in time for 2-3 before the finale.

LOVE it!!

Anna Paquin.....schwing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw the first four episodes of the first season (waiting on Netflix to send me the next DVD to see the next couple). I also read the first book in the series the show is based on. Okay, I absolutely HATED the first two episodes, didn't really mind the next two. I'm intrigued enough to keep watching the next DVD, but not enough to subscribe to HBO to see the current season beginning this weekend.

I really like how they have chaged some of the lore, made it their own. Its interesting, the crosses not actually working, and the mirrors and such. Never thought of those possibilities :)

It's a good one alright. The acting, writing, music is superb and it has pretty people to look at. I love what they have done with the mythos. The only thing that gets on my nerves is how Bill says Sookie. Let's see if I can imitate it in text form. It goes something like sssukkey... annoying. Sam is my favorite character, I'm really looking forward to see more of that unfold. I think I'll netflix the 1st season, since we don't have cable and have to wait for a friend of ours to tape the new season for us. I need a true blood fix.

The link above has all of the episodes online, you can watch for free ;)

I also agree the Sookie pronunciation is annoying... I tell myself that he is from another time...

Oh lookie a link right in front of my face lol, thanks for pointing it out:o

I hear the first episode had some fantasmal musak in it. and nudity. Our cable show hook up (aka mark) really enjoyed those parts :) can't wait for my first 6 episode vhs tape.

Here's an interesting factoid I found.

Bill the lead vampire in the series aka Steven Moyer is a ukin' dude!!!

Yep...the blood sucking freak plays the ukulele!!

Anna Paquin, who is his "real life" human...has his playing on her iTunes playlist.

OMG, second season was SO good. Reading the books now. If you haven't read them the first one is nearly word for word the first season. The second book has some of the same elements, but is different enough to enjoy. Starting on the third now.

I agree, the books are really good. I haven't seen the second season of the show, only the first, but I loved the books. I also recommend the Harper Connelly series by the same author, Charlaine Harris.

Team Eric, woo hoo! And everyone tells me that will solidify after I see the second season.

I'll definitely have to check those out when I'm done with these.


Yes, Go team Eric! He became one of my favorite characters this season, more so since I started the books. Plus the actor they have playin him...hot damn :drool:

I can imagine that. Although I don't mind the changes at all. It would be a pretty boring show if it stuck with the books to closely. I don't think they could have made 12 episodes if they didn't expand, elaborate, or completely change some things. The books only average around 300ish pages after all.

WARNING SEASON 2 SPOILER BELOW

I would have been real pissed if they killed off Lafayette in the series. He one of my favorites. Didn't care about it in the books since he's only in it for a couple passages.

I think the books are much better than the series, and I hate how they've deviated so much from the books. I'm wondering how the Eric storyline is going to play out in the books and on the show.

I think they did great casting with Sam on the show. Especially since from reading the books I kept imagining Danny Bonaduce. LOL.

It's known as the Sookie Stackhouse series aka Southern Vampire Mysteries, written by Charlaine Harris. The first book is called Dead Until Dark. You can sometimes find it at Target in the paperback section near all the romance novels.

I'm half way though the third book now. I see what you mean. I have a feeling I'm still going to adore the show. I wonder where they are going to take series 3?? Hmmm

3. Club Dead
4. Dead to The World
5. Dead as a Door Nail
6. Definitely Dead

8. From Dead to Worse

The one that is coming out this year is called A Touch of Dead. It's only a collection of short stories. For example one is a story about Sookie's cousin Hadley before she died. It's not a continuation of the series.

The next sequel is slated to be released in May 2010 according to the author's website.

I met Sukie from UU over the weekend at the Milwaukee Ukulele Fest. I couldn't help but pronounce it like I was Bill Compton-Soookie.

Maybe I should read the entire thread, but what did everyone think about this Season's finale? I was underwhelmed with it. I look forward to next season though.

CoffeeMate

I was fine with the finale. I was talking with a girl at work about it before I got around to watching it so I already knew not to expect much from it anyway. I didn't think the finale to the first season was so fantastic either.

I'm afraid it I met Sukie I would do the same thing...Soookie.

I'm personally over the whole vampire thing (especially the Twilight series... what mindless garbage!) that's going on at the moment and I wish that Blade would just finish them all off already but...


Anna Paquin.....schwing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This. Born in crazy Canada land, but she grew up literally 2 minutes drive from where I live :D

My wife is all into Vampire movies, so I decided to get the first season of True Blood for her. We watched the first three episodes and we were both hooked! It's really cool. And the intro song is simply amazing! "I wanna do bad things with you!" The coolest line in a song since Sexual Healing ;-)

I love the books...read each atleast six times. Can't stand the show because it deviates from the books. But I almost never like the movies as well as the books.

Yeah, great show! The Jace Everett song in the beginning is fun to play too.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but can anyone tell me the chords to this song? Thanks. :)

I really like True Blood because it's more than the inevitably hot and rich vampires that are sweeping the nation.

I love the parallels they make between vampire rights and the various civil rights movements that have hit the world over the years (I LOVE the "GOD HATES FANGS" sign during the intro). That political awareness is really awesome to see. Also, becoming a vampire on True Blood does not instantly make you into a sex goddess. If you're a couch potato looking human, you're a couch potato looking vampire.

I appreciate that :D
