Not since the days of The Slayer or the Charmed Ones has a show given this much hope to the supernatural genre. It has everything that the formula requires; a young outspoken girl with super powers, a sexy demonic love interest, and a dash of bloody violence.
No longer will we be forced to sit through Moonlight where the actors seemingly watched 30 seconds of Queen of the Damned to get an idea at how to play a convincing vamp. Say goodbye to the stolen overdone story arcs of Supernatural.
True Blood has potential to set new standards of acting, drama, and realism in this genre.
