re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

True Blood was hard for me to get into. i actually think season 1 is the weakest of the three. it definitely isn't the most well-executed or best-written show, and sometimes it does fall into the "lol that's gay" trap that plenty of vampire stories fall into, but Sookie Stackhouse is a much stronger protagonist, a good independent woman who's not in NEED of a vampire like in every other story, she just happens to really like one. you hardly ever for her out of stupidity. plus, there are badass vampires everywhere. and a lot of good old-natured violence and blood, and theres this cool government-like system within the vampires with leaders of territories, and mayors, and they sort of have their own democracy, and that's very creative.


plus i sorta have the hots for Alexander Skarsgaard. favorite vampire since Spike.



i would say overall it might be a top ten show that i watch now, probably around the bottom 10.

cool and smooth, that's how i play.

The whole show should just be about Jason Stackhouse being a dumb redneck. I could do without all the Vampire bullshit.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Jason is my favorite character on True Blood by far. At any rate, while gay at times (it is translated to TV by a gay guy btw), True Blood is fun stuff. It never takes itself too seriously and there is tons of gore and Sookie is naked pretty much all the time. I still haven't seen much of season 3 though.

Season 1 did start a trend of killing off really hot chicks on the show, eg Lynn Collins. This is the only thing I don't approve of.


Finally have gotten into The Wire. Holy fuck this show is awesome. Totally surpasses the hype. Fucking brilliant stuff.

Good to hear I just bought The Complete Wire a few days ago. Needed to finish Deadwood first though, for some reason I put off watching the last 3 episodes for a month or so.

I cannot stand True Blood, the faggotry of it is far too much for me. I was blessed with watching the first season because Mrs. Walls is obsessed with it and it was torture.
