Look what happened now...
I don’t watch a lot of TV. Ok let me be honest I watch like NO TV. When I rent in France, the first thing they always say is, “You know about French tv, yes?” “Yes,” I reply and we finish each other’s sentence with “it’s unreliable” But who in the bloody HELL goes to France to watch TV? Anyway, it is never a problem, but back in Texas when it’s a smoldering 105’ outside a little TV is nice, lol.
So one of my buddies told me about True Blood on HBO. I was like, “um what?” Another Vampire show? Set in Louisiana too? Been there, done that. And with the Queen of Vamps, Ms Ann Rice, thank you very much! *Read her books NOW if you have not. Twilight my ass, don’t even. Anyway, it went something like this:
Buddie: “No, No you gotta watch this.” Me: “Hmm, Why?” Buddie: “Lots of hot guys…lots and good story too. Good acting”
Ok, that was the right combination to get my attention. + I was bored.
She brings over her Blue Ray set season 1 & I watched the pilot. I was hooked! OMG! Shortly after I bought my own set, LOL and not just for the Hot Men, which they DO HAVE, by the way..
I bought the series because it is set in rural Louisiana, which is a lot like most towns in the South, mine included. The dialogue is funny and smart & right on the money. The writers, or at least 1 -spent time (or grew up, am guessing) in the south. Because you have to BE here to understand the way things work, its really not something that is even explainable to someone else. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Yankee friends, but do tire of everything being set up North, with Northern problems. Says the woman who watches no tv. Everything could be set in the South now, for all I know. It’s not, right?
Anyway, True Blood is based on books written by Charlaine Harris. (Whom did/does live in the South.) I have started reading the books too, because I am waiting for the next season to come out on HBO. -June 16, 2013 according to the HBO website.
So anyway, what do you think? Anyone else watch True Blood? Or have another show to recommend while we are waiting?
