Classified as horror, dark humor and fantasy, HBO’s series True Blood is a modern tale of Vampires. And while some of the “regular” rules apply (can only be invited in) but as the story goes on being able to walk in the sunlight and others fall away. How about vampires that cry blood and fall in and out of love? And then there is silver, now I always understood it as something that stopped werewolves. But Vampires? Well Bill and other characters are subject to silver chains as well as melted silver which burns and sizzles the skin and takes away their strength.
The show is entertaining and fun for anyone who enjoys vampires (and sex, lots of sex). My only complaint is that I wish they could be more create with the dialog. Dropping the F-bomb every few words does take away from the impact of the occasional F-bomb.
True Blood is an American television drama series created and produced by Alan Ball. It is based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, detailing the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional, small town in northwestern Louisiana. The series centers on the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress with an otherworldly quality.
The show explores several contemporary issues, such as the struggle for equal rights, discrimination and violence against minorities and homosexuals, the problems of drug addiction, the power of faith and religion, the control/influence of the media, the quest for identity, and the importance of family.
