True Blood-I've Been Bitten By HBO
True Blood isn't the typical type of entertainment I choose for myself, but once I started watching I couldn't stop. I am usually one that watching TV while I am doing something else. I like the background noise of a sitcom or a game show while I am busy doing a craft of working on the computer. I have to say True Blood changed how I view television.
I am anticipating every scene and have a hard time concentrating on anything other than the show. I can hardly believe that the last season is upon us. I love to watch my True Blood DVD as often as I can and anytime I want to entertain myself. I just pop a DVD into my player and I'm good to go. It seems every time I watch them I catch something I missed. The little clues to the future episodes are easy to see once I became an avid fan.
I always say I someone is wearing a white outfit they are sure to have an encounter with a vampire. The contrast between blood and a crisp white shirt really allows for great contrast. My husband is the one who got me hooked on the show. He invited me to watch with him one night and since it was on demand we ended up staying up all night to watch the first season. I was bitten and haven't stopped watching since that night. I have all of the DVD's and anticipate the craziness of each season.
Since the show is on HBO it follows it's own season. The new season come out the last few weeks of June, which make for a very entertaining summer. If you need some truly entertaining fast moving drama this is the show you you need to see.
Intriguing and Entertaining
True Blood's second season, with episodes involving a new cast of monsters invading Louisiana swamp town Bon Temps, is notably gorier and more camp than the first season. While thematically the central focus in these 12 exciting episodes still revolves around faith and loyalty, these questions are complicated by displays of pagan ritual and obsession. Though the vampire/human relationship dilemma continues, spearheaded by lovers Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), there is less emphasis on addiction to V, or vampire blood, and more time dedicated to outsiders whose supernatural talents make some episodes feel like superhero battles.

The 12 episodes composing True Blood: The Complete Third Season are either the best yet or the most ridiculous, depending on one's opinion of the increasing number of monsters entering the scene. As last season saw an onslaught of pagan and ancient Greek-derived "supernaturals," as they're called by Bon Temps' citizens, this season welcomes everything from werewolves, to vampire royalty, to that surprise-being that Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) finally discovers she shares genes with. While the first two seasons centered on the spicy love affair between Sookie and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), this season branches out once again from the vampire-human cultural blender. From the first episode, "Bad Blood," when Bill is whisked off to meet the King of Mississippi, Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare), whose villainous scheme will inform all ensuing episodes, one gets less of Sookie and Bill, and more of everything else.
True Blood is the sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from OscarÂ®- and EmmyÂ®-winning Alan Ball (HBO’s Six Feet Under), and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood tells the continuing tale of Sookie (Anna Paquin, Golden Globe-winner for this role), a human waitress with telepathic gifts – and a so-far irresistible attraction to 174-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Surrounded by familiar faces – including her brother Jason (Ryan Kwanten), shape-shifting boss Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), soul-searching pal Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), Tara’s cousin Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis); police chief Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer), vampire suitor Eric Northman (Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd) and teen vamp Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) – Sookie faces some new otherworldly threats in this season – as if vampires, werewolves, werepanthers and shapeshifters weren’t enough!
