In just a few short minutes, the first episode of Season 3 of True Blood will be coming on. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this. I first fell in love with the show last year and since then I’ve watched every episode and read all of the Sookie books. For those of you who do not know this, Charlaine Harris is a genius. Her blend of real life, myth, and magic all come together seamlessly and in a totally believeable way. I cannot recommend this series enough to you. If you haven’t already, take the time and read the books. They’re amazing.
As for the show itself, my hat is off to Alan Ball who took Ms. Harris’s vision and made it a reality in True Blood. Anna Paquin was a dynamite choice and an insanely good actress. Also, I love how Lafayette gets a bigger part in the show than he does in the books. My favorite episodes are the ones about him. If you are in the mood for some oogle worthy guys, True Blood is the show for you. Between ‘Bill’ (if you like romantic 1800’s figures) ‘Eric’ (Drool-if you like powerful, norse god types) ‘Sam’ (the guy next door/best friend) and the newest swoon worthy character ‘Alcide’ (gorgeous, muscled, and mannered, with a streak of wildness), this is definately a crowd pleaser. So happy season premier everyone and enjoy the show.
