True Blood

Guest post brought to you by Lesli Marc

True Blood is on HBO on directtv around Denver. Alan Ball adapted it from The Southern Vampire Mysteries series by Charlaine Harris. It is set in a fictional small Louisiana town, Bon Temps and is about vampires and humans living together here. The show centers on Anna Paquin who plays Sookie Stackhouse, a waitress at a bar, who falls in love with vampire Bill Compton, who is played by Stephen Moyer. This season they have been separated because he was kidnapped and she has been searching for him. He was taken by werewolves to Mississippi and she has been growing closer to Eric, another vampire. Also, her best friend, Tara, has been struggling with the fact that her boyfriend was killed and that he was a murderer.

Sookie's brother, Jason, actually killed him but everyone thinks the sheriff did it and he has been seeing everyone with a bullet hole in their forehead. Another character is Sam and he owns the bar where Sookie works. He is a shapeshifter and has been searching for his real parents. He may wish he never found them. Also, Arlene is a waitress that works with Sookie and she just discovered that she is pregnant again, but not by her boyfriend, the cook. All these characters intertwine to make a show that keeps me coming back for more.
