    Default True Blood-HBO's new vampire series

    I've heard the books are really good. I'll have to read them.

    I wasn't overly impressed with the show but the reviewers said it takes a few episodes to gather steam so I'll keep watching.

    Anna Paquin sure grew up cute.

    I read the books and I definitely recommend them- I saw the leaked pilot online and the show is close to the spirit of the books but I think they have changed cast members and a few plot points. But I am looking forward to seeing the final cut pilot and series. I wasnt sure about Anna Paquin as Sookie - but after seeing the pilot, I was impressed.

    I watched it last night. I thought it was good. I'll definitely keep watching.

    I never read the books. I'll have to start.

    I was just about to post to see people's views. I was really unimpressed but I guess I'll give it a few more episodes. The whole "coming out of the coffin" was a little campy, with everyone so fascinated. I thought it was really over-acted too. We'll see though, that Vamp was hot!

    I really liked Anna's character of Sookie. I'm going to keep watching.

    But with this and Twilight is the world not yet sick of vampires? I never thought I'd think that but maybe I am.

    ^ Nope its going to be more if both Twilight and True Blood do really well- The Mercedes Thompson series might be made into a movie as well and there are few more Urban Fantasy books being bought up as well. The key thing is if the adaptation is true to the books.

    I sort of liked the pilot, it shows a mass of promise. It just didn't grab me terrifically.

    Finally saw the pilot episode. It looks pretty good. I'll keep watching to see where the story goes.

    I've watched the first two episodes-so far, I like it. It's certainly different, and I love its unique atmosphere.

    I'm also in love with the credits.

    I'm going to give this show a few more episodes. Vampire Bill is hot though! The Tara character irritates me, she's too over the top.

    I can't get over how the plot seems opposite of the "Twilight" books in some ways, ie. someone who can read minds.

    It comes on Sunday nights at 9 p.m., and then they repeat it throughout the week, especially on Thursday and Friday nights. They also have it on HBO On Demand.

    K so I got the first book but started watching the show before I read it.
    For some reason I just cannot get into it (the book). The show looks good though. I like it.
