      Caught the first two episodes on OnDemand last night was I'm a bit unsure of whether or not I like it. I'm a sucker for anything Vampire related and the premise of the show is extremely original... just if this turns in to a love story of a Buffy type show I'm bailing <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/biggrin_upper.gif" BORDER="0">

      I was wondering what's up with the dog as well. It seems to show up at random times and kind of watch over her.

Seems tons of people are rushing out to buy and read the series of books, so much that some stores are having a hard time keeping them on the shelves. Of course, I'm super proud of Charlaine Harris. She deserves it! Her books are always great fun. I can never wait for the next one in any of her serieses.<p>Anyone notice that the customer in the Wal*mart was the, "woman," from Total Recall when Arnold puts on the fat suit and the mechanical exploding head? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/redface.gif" BORDER="0"><p>And also, the opening credits were so much like Natural Born Killers.

      I used to love this show, untill this just recent episode; now I just like this show. The whole vampire club or whatever you call it trio is pretty lame, those characters suck ass, I hope they get killed off early. Now tara(sookies best freind) I'm deeply in love w/ her. God she's awesome as hell, I would marry that girl. Hopefully this show picks up next ep.

    12. 09-24-2008 08:57 AM #47
      Yeah episode 3 wasn't the best. And those extra vamps were lame as hell.<p>And I hate the fangs, have I mentioned that?<p>I'm thinking episode 1 was the hook, 2 was the hook extended, episode 3 was laying groundwork, and episode 4 might be more groundwork. By episode 5, some serious **** should be going down.<p><FONT COLOR="darkred"><b>&gt;&lt;</b></FONT>

      I have read most if not all of the Sookie Stackhouse books and so far the show has kept pretty true to the books. I hope the King shows up as well.<p>The bar owner in the books is a weredog.<p>There is a lot of potential in this show. Especially if they get into the whole Vampire social hierarchy.

      I just caught up with the show. It's watchable. I'll keep up with it. Those accents need to be worked on. I grew up in Louisiana and I've never heard anyone talk like that unless I was watching Hee Haw or some other goofy show like that. I can't stand when actors just "put on the southern accent" and that is how everyone outside of New York and California talk. <p>Good idea for a show, No more spoilers please.

    17. 09-28-2008 11:00 PM #52
      OMG Eric is awesome. I can't wait for more of him, and his flunkies.<p>The show today didn't seem to follow any direct section of the first book. I hope the series doesn't just go off on some tangent that has nothing to do w the books. That would suck. I guess the thing w the cop was just so you could see what vampires could do. I love that he peed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><p>&gt;&lt;

      Also it was nice to see, sweet, strong Bill have to bow down to a higher vampire in the hierarchy.<p>&gt;&lt;

      The bar owner in the books is a weredog.<p>Ok please bear with me. I never read any of the books but I enjoy the show. Glad I found this thread with you all who understand it in detail? <p>Can someone explain the difference between a vampire and a werewolf? (besides the fact one is a human and the other a dog?) <p>Thanks in advance!!!!

      i love how all vampires do is have sex.<p>were these books written by a man in his early twenties? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/biggrin_upper.gif" BORDER="0">

      I havet seen the newst episode (yet) so I may not be ansering your question exactly. <p>A werewolf/dog is pretty much a wild animal. In most other stories when they change they are wild voracious animals. WW/D are solitary live away from people. When they change and eat it looks like some wild animal jus twen t nuts on something meaty. (I haven't read the book either so I could be way off base here too)<p>Vampires are more controlled, community living (vampire nests), rules (don't eat anyone else's food), some in this story are trying to live by mortal rules, they have lived with and in scociety for a long time and are able to cover their existance. The comon thread in a lot of the vampire stuff is there are a set of rules to follow. <p>Just a though.

      As far as the books are concerned, Sam isn't a were-anything. He's something else entirely.<p>As far as werewolves are concerned, they are not necessarily the volitile creature of legend. They are normal people w normal day jobs and normal lives, who can shift into wolves and live under the wolf heirarchy in a werewolf pack.<p>Hope that clears up some misconceptions.<p>No more spoilers, ppl!<p><FONT COLOR="darkred"><b>&gt;&lt;</b></FONT>

      yeah between the growling in bed with tara, <br>and the sniffing of sheets, <br>and the dog, <br>you gotta figure he is a were-something.<p>i never read the books though, <br>so i don't really want to hear speculation based on what is in those.
