I Am Addicted to This Show

I am not one of those spooky types who loves to read Anne Rice and thinks about vampires and shit like that.
However, HBO's new series, "True Blood" is just as good, if not better than Alan Ball's first HBO series, "Six Feet Under."
From the evil-tinged rockabilly theme song to the mossy Louisiana landscape and the superstitious, swampy attitude that more or less defines residents of the state, the people who put this show together are masters at suspense, shock and story telling.
Having experienced for myself what I think may have been an inadvertent exposure to voodoo/bad juju on my last trip to New Orleans, weird shit happens in Louisiana and it is the perfect venue for a series about vampires.
Have you seen it?
Isn't it deliciously macabre?
I wanna do bad things with you... Eeuuwww, how creepy-cool is that song?

I dig that show too. I saw the first couple of episodes when we were getting free HBO at our old place. I'll have to wait for the DVD to see the rest.

Mmmmmm. Yummy. The whole thing rivets me. The sets, the characters and the actors who play them, the design, the dialog.

Plus, it has the added measure of furtive, guilty pleasure. I watch it alone after everyone has gone to bed.

I hate vampire crap and all the bloody weirdness BUT this show is so enticing I've become addicted to it. Unfortunately it penetrates my psyche so deeply, I have to tape it and watch it at an earlier hour otherwise it gets in my head and my dreams and I can't sleep peacefully.

I gotta say after last night's show I had a tiny nightmare. But then it could have been James my cat trying to lick my hair.
