True Blood - Season 1 (DVD)
Advantages: Fun to watch and engaging.
When I first heard about this show I thought it would just be another boring vampire TV series with no depth like some of the other over rated vampire stuff such as Twilight etc. I decided to watch it one day when I saw all of series one was on demand. After watching the first 2 to 3 episodes I thought this aint bad and have been hooked on it ever since.
The main thing that got me into this show was that its probably the most realistic vampire show out in this time I feel like the vampire stuff they bring out today is really cheesy but this is far from cheesy. The series has modernized the methodologies of being a vampire very well and made them seem like everything you would expect from a vampire but more relevant to today's world.
Season 1 consist of 12 episodes that are an hour long which are about a girl called Sookie Stackhouse living in a small town in Louisiana. The first series has a mystery serial killer that causes a lot of trouble and backstabbing and distrust between the characters.
Sookie Stackhouse is the main character and she has the ability to read the minds of people that stand close by her but no one but her family and best friend are aware of this. Sookie is played by Anna Paquin and I think she does a really good job at playing her role as it contains whirlwind of emotions in season one.
Bill Compton is Sookie Stackhouse's love interest in season on he is a 173 year old vampire and people around them dont take to their relationship very well. Bill Compton is played by Stephan Moyer and he is a cool laid back vampire that abides by the rules set for the town. I think he plays his role well because he gives of a creepy sort of atmosphere when he is on screen. I find is so funny the way he say's Sookie's name, Its sort of like SOOkehh.
The reason vampires are able to live alongside normal humans in this TV series is because there was a drink created called True Blood that vampire would drink to replace actual human blood. As long as vampires dont kill and drink the True Blood instead they could stay living alongside humans. However in series their is still tension between humans and vampire because of the killings of girls that happen throughout the series.
The postures, the look, the flare and the costuming for the vampires in this show is on point. I think that the makers have done a really good job in convincing the audience that, this is how a vampire should look.
The whole series is really hot, sexy the cast is full of beautiful people making it all the more fun to watch. I think that the hottest character in the series is Jason Stackhouse played by Ryan Kwantan he is a bit of a womaniser in the series.
This is more of an adult TV series in my opinion its too mature for younger viewers hence it being rated an 18.
The opening song for the series is Jace Everett - Bad Things. This TV show actually made me go on iTunes and by this song because I liked it that much. It costs 99p on iTunes.
This DVD for season 1 is available on Amazon for 11.95 plus 1.26 for delivery. Worth the money I think.
