Just a reminder:

HBO SERIES: TRUE BLOOD begins tonight at 8 central.

If they stay to half of what makes the books fantastic, this show will be worth watching again and again. I LOVE THE BOOKS. Charlaine Harris has created a wonderful eclectic world of vampires, humans, werewolves, werepanthers and just about any other supernatural creature you could think of.

A synopsis of the show.
Small town Louisiana waitress Sookie Stackhouse already is viewed as an oddball by her friends and neighbors, since she can read the minds of those around her. She doesn't exactly help her reputation, though, when she falls for handsome newcomer Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who has "come out of the coffin" along with many of his undead comrades now that a new synthetic blood has made it possible for vampires to survive without preying on humans. Still, the conservative locals aren't wild about mortal-vampire liaisons, especially Sookie's boss, Sam Merlotte, who carries a torch for her. "Six Feet Under" creator Alan Ball is behind this new series adaptation of best-selling novels by Charlaine Harris.

I always liked Dark Shadows the best as far as vampire series go.

True Blood reminds me of Heroes at first glance (just rented the first episode from Blockbuster), though the show still has an original feel overall
