True Blood review

True Awesomeness

I probably mentioned before how I'm not a big follower of the shows everyone likes, I usually don't end up liking them. My friend sent me home with Seasons 2 and 3 so I downloaded Season 1. I haven't stopped watching them since. At this point my only complaint is that practically everyone is some kind of supernatural being, I would much rather have more humans on the show.
I've always been interested in Supernatural things and this show does a great job of making the stories interesting enough that even those who don't like that kind of thing could still like the show. It's a lot like a soap opera with a lot more blood.
The real life storylines are interesting and I love the love triangles and heartbreaks that the people go through. I like that there are gay characters and it's not a big deal even though the show takes place in the conservative South. I like the wide variety of characters on the show and ttheir beliefs on Vampire/Human relations. It's not black and white, there are many shades of gray.
Sookie is adorable, I'm not going to lie. Her energy is amazing even though she had to grow on me. Still, I don't understand why EVERY single guy on the show wants her. Someone needs to hate the girl for God's sake. If I had to pick I think she should be with Alcide because Bill is boring, Eric's crazy and Sam is unstable (and better in his current storyline).
Lafayette is my favorite character, followed closely by Tara. They have great storylines although I'm not too sure about Lafayette now but I do want to know where they're going to go.
Also interesting is the maker/vampire dynamic and Kristen Bauer as Pam is amazing as Eric's protegee. I think her character would be the most fun to play. She's a little crazy, always tells it how it is and has kinky sex with every female that walks. Love it!
I can't wait to see where they go with this show and I will be watching closely. It's great to see a show that's a fan favorite actually live up to it's hype in my eyes.
