True Blood


HBO is pulling out all the stops for True Blood. Postcards with Sumerian text sent to horror fans, pseudo news reports with real reporters, vampire social networks, etc. But does all that stuff really work? How about more emphasis on the story, characters and relationships?

Vampires are tailor-made for soapy dramas, but no one has been able to pull it off since “Dark Shadows”. “Kindred: The Embraced” and "Ultraviolet" (UK mini-series) had some potential.

There are some talented people behind this, but it could go either way...

I've reviewed the Pilot here
Basically, it was disappointing, but there's a lot of potential if they get their act together.
