Real Blood is for SUCKERS.

I know, I know... I'm running a little late on this fixation.

... In fact, I'm running approximately 17 episodes and an entire season late.

But, this TV series is just too tasty to pass up.

Created by Alan Ball, True Blood tells the tall of co-existence between vampires and humans after a synthetic blood drink is created in Japan, replacing a vampires need for human blood. Set in the fictional town of Bon Temps, in the American South, it follows the story of Sookie Stackhouse, a telepath, who meets a 173 year-old vampire named Bill Compton (and inevitably falls madly in love with him). 


... Enter, a handful of other mythical creatures such as shape-shifters and werewolves, and you've got yourself a spellbinding cast with a hell of a bite. In fact, this series is less about love, and more about murder, sex, racial conflict and violence.

... done tastefully of course.

So go check out True Blood on Showcase (available on Cable TV) Tuesdays at 8:30pm. 

And if the vampires in the show don't dazzle you, then the kick ass cinematography and story-line will.
