“God hates fangs”
Posted in random by Mark on the December 29th, 2008

I’ve been recently completely addicted to a new TV show – True Blood.

Another vampire tv show, you would think the well was pretty dry after so many attempts to keep milking a bloody teet. (Blade films and tv show, Buffy film and tv show, Buffy’s spin off show Angel, Anne Rice’s two film adaptions, oh and countless other films, oh and that teeny stuff Twilight which looks quite cringeworthy)

But no, it’s rather awesome. The premise is a world in which vampires have come out to the world as there’s this synthetic Japanese alternative to human blood named – you guessed it, Tru Blood. (I guess after Tru Calling someone thankfully decided they couldn’t stomach naming another TV show with illiterate word use.) And the show takes place in the deep south of America, and with that loving and caring locale it contrasts all kinds of intolerance, “fangs” themselves, fang-bangers (take a guess), racism, homophobia. And it’s just surprisingly quality. Full of blood, death, sex, substance abuse. It’s all kinds of win.

The intro sequence is rather twisted, reminds me of one of my favourite movies – Natural Born Killers, and I suppose at a push, Se7en’s intro too.

    See, see! I told you it was awesome. Having said that, I haven’t had the time to finish watching it myself yet.

    Thanks Dallas will take a peek, have to admit I’m slightly scared to read the books in case they put the show totally to shame :D
