Have you watched it yet? When I saw ads for it, I thought "Dumb." When I heard them talking about it on the radio, I thought, "Gimme a break." But when I got sucked (ahem) into the pilot episode, I came very close to being hooked, albeit not entirely. When I went to HBO On Demand, however, and watched a couple of the "Making of True Blood" shorts, in which they interview the director and actors and author of the True Blood book(s?)...and others involved in the production, I became a hundred percent hooked, as in hook line and sinker.
I was a huge Six Feet Under fan, and True Blood is directed by the same guy who directed that. I've forgotten his name. Interesting man. So anyway, in my opinion True Blood is truly an original. Funny, quirky, satirical, political, gory, and sexy sexy naughty naughty.
