True Blood

If I wasn't going to hell before, I certainly am now.

I spent the entire day and most of yesterday watching True Blood, the HBO soft core porn TV series based on Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels.

God help me, I liked it.


First and most importantly, I'm more in love with Eric than I EVER was in the books, (which was a lot, by the by). I didn't mind the discrepancies from the novels, and enjoyed the actors' characterizations of my favorite characters. I especially like Terry Bellefleur, the war veteran with the flashbacks, giving these truthful one liners that everyone dismisses because he's one of the town's basket cases. And Hoyt. He's a sweetheart, huh? Even thought I knew what was coming, I enjoyed the journey of getting there, seeing everything brought to life.

I think I dated Jason Stackhouse, once upon a time. Could they have picked a better actor for that character? Seriously. That boy IS Jason. And PAM!!!! SQUEEEEEEE! PAM! She ROCKS. I want to be Pam when I grow up and turn into a vampire. :D)

And despite the fact that I don't care for country music on the whole, I have 'I wanna do bad things with you' running through my head in a loop. Yikes. My hell WOULD have country music in it.

Well, I deserved it. I watched 'em all, and I'll watch next season, too. I'll need until then to recover from hearing the f-bomb being dropped so much.

Wait. Is there going to be a next season? *goes off to check*
