Well that went well! What a great new show. Excellent plot, I was fixated from start to finish of the first two episodes. Great production value, acting, and direction. I'm a total nerd when it comes to shows in this genre, I hope my rating stands the test of time and I won't need to downgrade it from 4.5 later.
I have never read the books this is based on, but if you watched the trailer on Youtube you can read the many comments by those who read the books complaining about how this series is not faithful to the books.
Who in this day and age doesn't understand that when it comes to TV shows and movies, they always take liberties and deviate from the source material? What is there to complain about if both are good? Now I'd like to read the books! Given Fox's abysmal renewal of shows like this, I hope it has great ratings and gets to at least finish with a good conclusion many, many seasons from now.
This show is amazing such a different concept of vampires I haven't seen before.
