      Interesting show. I was confused by the adds for the next episode (3). I hope that it stays interesting. The first was slow, lots of action in the second, and if they can keep up the pace it will be great!

      This last episode was much more enjoyable... Hopefully the pattern continues. Could be an exciting series.

      I'm totally digging all the side effects like her ability to smell the cracker on the floor

      I don't remember that from the books.

      I feel the other way. She's cute w dark hair, but the blond throws me. I know Sookie is blonde in the books, but I don't know that that was the best choice for the show.

      Heard the ratings for this are horrible?

      I recall from the books that when she had had some blood it did heigthen her senses.

      Howard Stern's behind it, now.
      I sent the show this email:
      Subject: True Blood
      Date: Thu, 18 Sep 2008 8:57:31 -0400
      Howard, I'm so happy you're watching True Blood. It's based on a series of books by Charlaine Harris, which are increasingly charming, that I basically sit and wait for when she's writing.
      I was very excited to find they were making a series, but wasn't sure how the audiences would find it.
      I'm glad you've gotten behind the show. The more viewership it has, the longer it will last, and the more we will see the 8 (so far) books develop.
      Thanks again!

      Yeah. When I said I didn't remember the hearing thing, that was cause I didn't realize she'd had Bill's blood, yet.
      I thought she was just having awesome hearing for no reason, hence the .

      It has already been renewed for a second season so the ratings must not be too horrible.

      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

      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.

      i got that too. the way they capture the dog "watching over" her in the background. like he's her guardian

      It does, but keep with it! Love is a fickle thing and tons more important **** happens besides the love story. Its just a jumping-off point.

      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?

      I thought the woman in the store looked familiar. Wouldn't she be a lot older now? The opening credits are just freaky....

      IDK, maybe not. When was Total Recall? Early 90s?
      She has such a distinctive face, and shape. And if she kept up w the hair dye, it could be her.

      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.

    22. 09-24-2008 07:57 AM #47
      Yeah episode 3 wasn't the best. And those extra vamps were lame as hell.
      And I hate the fangs, have I mentioned that?
      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.

      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.
      The bar owner in the books is a weredog.
      There is a lot of potential in this show. Especially if they get into the whole Vampire social hierarchy.

      They made a ref to the Queen in episode 3.
      Episode 4 looks good. Eric shows up! I can't wait! *pant*
