First off - This is not just another vampire-human love story. There are lot of other supernatural beings in the show, and the show is much more "adult" (that's the only word I can use to describe it, e.g lots of fucked up shit, swearing and sex) compared to every other supernatural show I have watched (and I've watched a lot). That is what makes this show still very unique to this day. As well of that, it's the only show I know of set in a world where humans actually know about vampires, and seeing the politics behind this (e.g should vampires have rights etc) is also very unique and interesting. Definitely would recommend. Only given 4 stars instead of 5 due to certain seasons lacking in good storylines.

I lost interest during season 3, it's not as good as the books, it doesn't even seem like the same characters.

I'm in no way a book over tv snob but, for me, the show just became dull and repetitive, yep, even despite all the blood. Not even Aleksander Skaarsgard could keep me watching. Drat!!!!

I never really got into the books but I enjoyed the show. It seemed to lose something there towards the end. I am glad they concluded it when they did.

I stopped being an avid watcher in the run up to the last season but had loved it up until then. I started reading the books AFTER the show began and that may have been where I made my mistake...Loved it nonetheless.

Starts out mediocre then gets exceedingly shittier as the series goes on. In the end I couldn't figure out why I bothered watching any of it. Though I did have it on as background noise while I did other things so technically I didn't torture myself too much.

The main characters -Sookie and Bill - are terrible. The over the top Hollywood shrieking is tiresome before the pilot is over and their "romance" is sad and cliche.

Also, don't listen to all the claims of how "unique" or "original" this show is. It really rips off a lot of other series, most noticeably Buffy.

I'm a big vampire / werewolves and so on fan so I got really excited when True Blood began, I even read the books. The first seasons are really good and are pretty faithful to the books but the last ones have absolutely nothing in common. Maybe for the best? I'll confess, I kept on watching for Alexander Skarsgard's ass (didn't you?)
