God Hates Fangs


Has anybody else been getting all hooked on the new Alan Ball HBO series "True Blood?" Dean and I having been watching it the past few weeks, and I think it is pretty incredible. A mix of Southern Gothic social drama/romance and hip urban vampire mystery/thriller. Starring Anna Paquin (who played the little girl in the movie "The Piano," now all grownup) as the telepathic-waitress and love interest of the local hunky vampire, played by Steven Moyer; and Ryan Kwanten as her horny sexpot dumb-as-a-post brother, Jason. It's hot hot hot. Check it out!

I keep hearing mixed reviews for this. But with On-Demand, I may have to check out the first episode and see what happens.

Jacob and I have watched every episode. The first two were a little dicey, but now we are totally hooked.

I love how the Vampires are the new "minority" in town, trying to integrate, assimilate. It's really very cool, how the show explores prejudice, hate crime, intermarriage, discrimination, oppression against the V's, and the trials of those who help to fight for their inclusion.

I just happen to research since I have to write about you and your work Nursemaid's Elbow. It's pretty cool that I find your blog! AND, that you like True Blood. I'm pretty much hooked! Also if you have any extra info for me, I would so appreciate that! Maybe I can write better about you!

I have limited cable so I can't say I have seen this but I have read the Charlaine Harris books that this series is based on and if it is even a little like the book series, I imagine it will be a hit.

I've read one book of the "Southern Vampire" series; I found it derivative, pretty much well-written, but lacking in spark.

The series appears to be dumber, but much trashier, and looks to be more enjoyable....

Incidentally, Charlaine Harris looks exactly as you'd expect the author of a book with a young, attractive, heroine of a romance novel to look...
