I dunno... I saw some commercials and it just struck me as being for the goth/emo teenage girl set. Not really my cup o' tea.

I think I get it. The HBO HD channel plays it less often than the HBO SD channels do?

I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

@JolietJake - I heard that the vamps are really a metaphor for gays. How vamps want rights and are 'Coming out of the Cofin'. Either way an interesting story.
So far True Blood has been mildly entertaining but definitely has the depth of story to promise a great series.
Episodes 1-3 definitely set up a story that isn't just about vamps, how there could be other "special people" like Sookie or werewolfs? Whats the deal w/ the bar guy, can he actually xform into a dog(could have been his "brother" when that dog came up to him on the stairs). I want more violence and im sure that will wont be a problem once the story gets rolling.

My wife are watching it. The past episode was the make or break for us and after it was over we still didn't know if we wanted to stop watching. The whole scene with Suki at the vampire house and the bad vampires was just corny. But when they started bringing up elders and hinted on older vampires it peeked my interest. Will probably watch next week.

as of now, there has been very little in regards to vampire fiction...more a soft core weak ass drama series that teases vampire folklore

i am borderline on stopping watching it...i watched it because I am a sucker for vampire shit...IMO the storylines/drama are poor, the dialog is poor, and the vampire shit has been horrible...but they keep tossing me a little bit of shit to make me suck it up and watch one more episode.

What keeps me watching (I am halfway through the 3rd episode) is the information about vampires that keeps trickling out. The information about nesting vampires, vampire blood's benefits to humans, Hep D, how silver affects them, etc., are the parts that are interesting to me.
The characters are pretty shallow but that could be because the show is still early, and Sookie's friend keeps my finger dangerously close to the Fast Forward button.
I'll keep watching, but I'm unsure whether I really like it or not.

Sidebar, I'm still waiting for A Game of Thrones to go into production for HBO.

Oh. So, it's like Moonlight? Disappointing.
