True Blood



Wasn’t the complete train wreck that I was expecting, but nobody is going confuse this with “Six Feet Under” or “Buffy” any time soon. The accents were more than a little grating and the tone was all over the place. And how about throwing in a couple of ignorant Yankees to spread the offensive stereotypes around? I suspect the show might have been a little too over the top for a lot of viewers. Still, I’m curious enough to see where things go...

I never read the book series this is based on, but the fans online have been saying this sticks very close to the books. So I think it will end up with some decent ratings. In fact, I know people who added HBO (is it that one? or Showtime?) in order to be able to watch it.

Your report has me thinking I probably wouldn't like the books either....

Alan Ball is behind it, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt -- for now.
