Does anyone else watch True Blood?

I know--it's total trash TV. Almost like a Soap Opera. And I don't even get the whole "vampire culture." Like, Twilight did nothing for me, but I love this show. Anyway, I finally got to watching my DVR'd episode from this Sunday night, and can I just say---Alcide? Drool.

I'm bored at work, so excuse the nonsense post, but no one has been chatty today. Yet!

It's great! I don't like it for the vampire aspect. It's just so inherently watchable. And....filled with hot guys. Not going to lie about that one. It is very soap-opera esque in that you want to keep watching just to see what is going to happen. I order HBO every summer (and then cancel it) just so I can watch it!

I'm a fan too!! Biggrin

I watched all 3 seasons last year after my mom got me addicted to it!
I don't have HBO Canada (too expensive) but I'll just wait until it comes out on DVD or download the episodes off the internet later.

After watching True Blood, I tried watching Twilight and just had to laugh, Twilight SUCKS compared to True Blood. The vampires are so fake in Twilight!

I love True Blood. Saw the title and had to pop in and share that! Lots of Sexy guys in this show. Stephen Moyer (who plays Bill Compton) is super sexy too.

Sam keeps the dog around because he is fond of it since he shifts into an identical dog. It's his "dog" of choice. Sam is a shape shifter.

Don't tell her!!! Biggrin Not knowing and having to wait to find stuff out is one of the best things about the show.

Also, yes, definitely a little cheesy, but infinitely watchable.

I watch it too, have since the beginning. I'm not one for all this vampire business but its a pretty good show, although I did find last season to be kind of disappointing. We have HBO Canada as part of our movie channel bundle so I DVR the episodes or watch them on demand. So far the new season is much better than last, with only a couple small gripes.

Erik is def my fave, he always has been, and this season he is just adorable lol! And I like Sam too, poor sweet Sam.

**lurker**

I saw the True Blood thread & had to pop in. I don't consistently watch the show, but did here & there for a few seasons.

Just wanted to drop in & say that my local bar, well, don't go much anymore, but my favorite bar (and w/in walking distance to me) is "Fangtasia."

It's actually called Alex's & it is so great. It's funny b/c you will see people in there w/ cameras, etc that look completely out of place & you just know they are True Blood fans. lol.

Oh my...
Did it take you guys who are hooked a while to get into it? or was it love at first.. bite.. HAHAH im lame..
I ask because, whenver it started, must be like 2 years ago?? I used to watch tv with my little newborn baby asleep on my computer, haha, and I started watching, and I just wasnt.. INLOVE with it, Okay I kinda liked the naughtyness of it... Like the first scene episode one I was like "ohh steamy!!" But.. it just seemed so..cheesey? Like anna paquin seemed so... hillbilly cheesey?? haha... So I stopped watching.. But now that it's lasted a few more seasons I've been debating if I should retry...

Something to fill the void while i wait for.. DEXTER.. the best show ever!!!! I'm so inlove with dexter!! Kevin is too... so much that he wants to name our child dexter.

I got hooked after the first episode! I do agree that it is cheesy but still very entertaining!

OH MY GOSH! Hubby and I love DEXTER too!! I can’t wait for the new season to start up!!

Yep, it's terrible but I like it. I've read all the books. I don't watch the current season because I don't have cable and season 3 just came out on DVD recently so I watched that. Season 2 is quite different than the books.
Oh, and I love Eric

yum, you girls got me excited over here with those pics of eric and alcide!!! My Dh and I watch True Blood and we love it!! It's funny because every time one show ends another favorite begins. We start the year with Spartacus on Starz, then Nurse Jackie on Showtime then True blood on HBO. Once True Blood ends it'll be time for Criminal Minds! Yeah, dh and I are total tv junkies!
