I just finished watching the first season of this and i must say: it was pretty darn good.

as a fan of vampire fiction i liked the different approach to the theme. holy water - it´s just water. vampire blood as the ultimate drug, crosses are crosses nothing more.

the interesting thing about this show (well besides the fact that they show sex quite often and without covering it with sheets. hell you´ll even get to see vampire fucking which is a little bit disturbing) is that it has interesting characters you really want to listen to and see where they are going. different to many other tv shows i saw (heroes as the best example) the characters and the dialogues are quite vivid and most of the time not boring. it is funny but far from ridiculous. The storywriting is quit mature. They don´t make it up while shooting (as seen in so many shows lately). it feels like they knew where they were headed.

and i really dig that southern redneck scenario although i need subtitles to understand them completely.

also: i am a fan of those 12 episodes season tv shows. Dexter (specially the first season) and originally prison break (first half of the first season was originally planned to be the whole thing) showed that the storytelling can be more focused without the need of filler episodes.

so...check it out. it´s good tv for you!
I concur. This show is good.
I just started watching it recently (about 3 or 4 episodes into season1). For the most part, I really enjoy it. The sex is way over the top imho. It gets a bit distracting at times, and I feel like they were thinking: "hey, its on HBO, we HAVE to put loads of gratuitous nudity in!" Also, while I love the characters and acting of Sookie and Bill, they go in and out of the bad southern accent a lot. Still, though, I love the 2 characters. My favorite though, is the gay bar cook / man-whore / town drug dealer. He is a riot!!

Sold! :-)

My RS Quota hates you all! :-P
I wasn't sold on the show, but kept watching because everyone said that season two was even better. You know what? They were right. Season two has damn fine script writing, and interesting decisions for everyone to make. Some of the best writing for a show I've seen in many days.

As for the acting I generally find that most actors do better than Sookie/Bill, which is a little sad. On a general level it's kinda good.

It's nice that it's so hot in this series that Anna Paquin has to have her legs out all the time. :-P

But also, it's so hot that apparently nobody sweats. :?

Speaking of Paquin, has anybody noticed TV land's latest trend of putting thin, pretty Aussie/Kiwi blondes in leading roles?

Anna Paquin
Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck) :razz:
Anna Torv (Fringe)
Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse)
