True Blood - anyone watching this?

Post by BigSi on Fri Jul 24, 2009 8:13 pm

Just thought I'd see if anyone else has been getting into this show. I'll admit I was more than dubious about it when I first heard of it, but after plowing through to ep 4 of season 2, I'm pretty hooked. Not your typical vampire show, that's for sure (which is a good thing). The fact that at least three of the main leads aren't American is pretty amusing (and surprising too), especially when the actor playing the brother of the female lead was from Home & Away.

Anyway, if you haven't checked it out, and you like off-kilter horror/drama/comedy, it's worth a look imho.

I also caught the last ep in a show called 'being human' on ABC 2 tonight - anybody else seen it - seemed alright from what I saw, although given it was the last episode, it was a bit confusing.

Cheers

I caught a couple episodes of the first season while working in the US last year. Didn't pay much attention to it - kinda had it as background noise - but that all changed after Anna Paquin and most of the female cast starting taking their kit off LOL.

Seriously though, it's pretty decent. There are some interesting characters and the idea of vampires and humans living together is different.

I caught the first 7 or so episodes and was pretty into it at the time. Then I just forgot about it. Tried to start watching again recently and just couldn't get into it.
It's neat, but just not my thing.

Yeah, ridiculous amounts of sex aside, there's a lot of great stuff in this show - the whole vampire blood as strett drug angle is pretty cool, and the hints of what else aside from vampires is out there is great (not to mention expanded upon a LOT in the second season). I also like the way the show handles the vamps as monsters - they're pretty damn brutal when they want to be, and not in any way softened.

TST - Id recommend giving it another go - things start to get pretty nuts towards the second half of the first season, and season two has been really, really good so far.

I have all the episodes thus far, as I was a fan of Ball's first show (Six Feet Under) but I haven't actually gotten around to watching any of it yet. I'll probably wait until this new season wraps up in a few more weeks before I start into it.

Highly addicted to True Blood (and Being Human).

While aspects of TB can be a bit frustrating, particularly the majority of Sookie's actions, the pretty much perfect supporting cast of characters makes up for any (minor) frustrations with the two "leads" (Bill and Sookie).

Cheers.

No, no. Sookie's not a succubus. She's a Vampire Layer. Or not.

Season 2 has just finished and we still don't know what Sookie is, so they're going to drag that question out for a while longer (although having read the books, I know what she *is* in the books, but they do differ from the TV series).

Cheers.
