So, hey. I finally got HBO working and I watched all 3 episodes in a row.
I'm super excited to find out what's next. They changed some stuff from the books, but not in a bad way.
There was tons of nods to the readers, that I noticed, and I loved that!
The grandmother was reading a Charlaine Harris novel in the 1st episode!
Speaking of, I visited the HBO forum for this show, and read a lot of the, "tell me your first impressions," thread. 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.
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?
And also, the opening credits were so much like Natural Born Killers. Anyone agree?
