I have to say that I was quite skeptical when I first saw the promotion of True Blood. In one instant I was excited, because I have been an avid Buffy fan and miss the vampire on TV; but, skeptical because I was afraid that the show might not measure up to my expectations. I was so wrong! I would like to just say that HBO has done a wonderful job in promoting the series, as well as producing it. It started with the wonderful Ã¢â¬ÅMockumentaryÃ¢â¬â¢sÃ¢â¬ï¿½ and fake news broadcasts which created a whole new reality surrounding the show.
Whoever thought up the idea of creating this alternate reality surrounding the show is a genius. Something that makes this show sow wonderful is how Sookie and Bill have such an on-screen chemistry. It is both frustrating and fulfilling at the same time. You can cut the tension with a knife. The show True Blood is so much more than vampires and humans living together. It speaks on so many pertinent issues that we in the human race are facing. The vampires seem to represent all minorities that struggle to gain equal rights. And like most minorities, they are greatly underestimated.
I have fallen in love with this series, and look forward reading your responses and Reviews of the next episode.
