Vampires have come 'out of the coffin' and are now living among us. Surviving on synthetic blood, they no longer need human blood to survive. Or so it seems... The small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana boasts a wide array of colorful locals. Meet Sookie Stackhouse, a sweet and innocent waitress who hides her powerful ability to read mind; Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who's just moved back to town; Sookie's brother Jason, a ladies' man who can't seem to stay out of trouble; tough-as-nails Tara, Sookie's loyal; best friend; San, the owner of Merlotte's who tries to keep his feelings for Sookie to himself; Lafayette, a man about town who's always cooking up something illicit and "off the menu" and a quirky cast of characters who each hide their dark secrets in the shadows of night in this series that's like no other.
Another superb drama from HBO.

True Blood is a yet another superb drama from HBO. Based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, True Blood is similar to other HBO shows such as 'Carnivale', 'The Sopranos' and 'Deadwood' in that it's not so much the overall vampire theme of the show but the engrossing characters which hook you into the series. Be warned though, True Blood is fully deserving of its 18 certificate, it's gory, sexually explicit, full of bad language, and utterly unmissable!
