True Blood/Sookie Stackhouse: My new vamp obsession

So, since I've read all 4 books in the Twilight series, and New Moon doesn't come out for several more months, I had to find a new vampire series to immerse myself in. My friend Amber recommended the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, and, WOW!! I love these books. I poured through the first 9 so quickly! I actually bought all of them, and I haven't done that in years.

Anyway, there is a show on HBO based on the books - True Blood. We don't get HBO, and although I begged Eric, it isn't that smart so I agreed that we shouldn't get it. I mean, $16 a month?

So, I am getting the episodes through Netflix. We have watched the first 4 episodes so far, and I have disc 3 with episodes 5 & 6 to watch tonight.

It's a good show, although Anna Paquin kinda drives me batty. Her accent and demeanor is a little over the top. And, I wish they had cast a bit hunkier dudes as the vamps. These guys are no Edward. But - they are much more adult books than Twilight, more graphic and violent, and lots of sex. Eric watched last week with me and he was like ummmm, you rented vampire porn? Ha!
