True Blood

I confess. I get together with a couple of girlfriends (and usually significant others) to watch True Blood. We can’t all make it every weekend, so we’ll store up a few episodes on my DVR and have a marathon session once a month or so.

And there is definitely no shortage of eye candy on these nights.

There’s vampires. And not in the sappy, "we love everyone, we only eat animals" Twilight kind of vampire way. Most of these are the "I want to suck your blood and do other bad things to you" vampires.

There’s witches. Necromancer-type witches. They weren’t all Glenda the Good Witch, after all.
There’s werewolves. And shape-shifters. Some of these have big old sloppy-dog hearts. Some of these are pit-bull fighters.

And since this series is on HBO, you know there’s lots of gratuitous nudity. And plenty of sex.
Seriously? Fifty Shades of Gray has nothing on True Blood.

I suppose there’s also plenty of eye candy for the guys. And that’s probably why the significant others come along for the show.

This TV series is based on a series of books. I haven’t read the books yet, but I’m told the show is pretty seriously diverging from the original plot line now. I am looking forward to (maybe?) having some downtime in the future to read them…

But I’m not sure I care how closely the story lines mesh. It’s pretty entertaining. I mean, when Sookie gets completely drunk, pukes all over a hot guy’s shoes in the middle of a make out session, then yells “boot and rally!” and heads out a broken window to go hunting for a hungry, vicious, 3000-year old vampire, where can you go wrong?

We spend most of the evening laughing… I don’t think it’s intended to be a comedy, but we certainly get a bunch of laughs out of it!

Hey – no spoilers in the comments… We’re a week behind on the show!

  1. Sounds fun. Don't think I've ever seen an episode, but it might be worth watching for the hot guys.
