What? Final season?

Vampires live forever and so will this?!

Watch with your remote in hand to zip by needless porno amid interesting plots otherwise filled with a hodgepodge of occult "history" spanning time.

The characters are the meat -- or the blood.

Watch carefully in the dark: lest the dark watch you

I have been looking forward to seeing Fringe for a long time (don't panic I am about to pen thoughts about True Blood). I was so dissappointed with Fringe: formulaic, derivative, wooden acting. My dissappointment led me to look for something new and I discovered True Blood.

With True Blood I haven't enjoyed something so different from the US for ages. The characters are sad, funny, annoying, innocent. There are lots of story lines running throughout and they make the show a comedy in one scene, a drama in another, a love story in another and a murder mystery runs throughout. The storylines running through the show include the sexual awakening of the main character, the daft brother and his need for wild sexual adventures, the heroine's friend's struggle with her alcoholic mother, the unrequited love of the boss for the heroine and the best character of all the gay black chef who steals every scene he is in.

I am assuming the Vampire's in True Blood symbolise the fear of Afro-American's in the Deep South or some such metaphor and I love how this is approached. This is brilliantly pulled off with the likeable gay black chef peddling drugs who is a thoroughly likeable and fun loving character against the Vampire's who are to be feared, mis-trusted and grudginly given rights.

I think this is the most thought provoking and multi-layered drama I have seen from the US in years and its so refreshing to see something a bit different and morally ambiguous. Great acting throughout.

My Definition of this genre ist very different, i found that out, when i watched the first episode of true blood. Underlying story is a novel, so I guess either the Novel is no good at all or the TV writers did a bad job, since they find no sence of good Timing within the story, there is no Flow that carries you through, its a stop and go feeling, that left me confused and not very satisfied with it. Conversations are dull and did anybody else recognize that the Actors mumble while they are Vampires *sensational" who let this happen? Some Actors cannot even get their Southern Slang right at times *it`s not hard is it*
Too much staring, too much artificial tension, no supsense, no thrill for me there when it comes to the subject Vampires and the intense and very nude Sex scenes do not tempt me to come back and watch, because it is totaly overdrawn, looks more like the desperate attempt to get more viewers at any cost. The girl that plays Tara is very annoying, especially when she drinks beer *constantly* during the first three episodes. Might be matter of taste but i just don`t get how Moonlight was 86 for some lame story like this, sorry, or lamely executed story.

7 seasons was about 6 too many. They should've had a story arc and told it in 1 season. It doesn't seem even have a plot now :-(

1. has a flowing plot and actual stroyline . each episode follows the last one. so its a must to watch it from start. lots of twists to keep you thinking. IT IS AN ADULT SHOW. good amount of violence. its a show directed towards both genders .

the downside of the show is it is aiming to be more mythical farie tale stuff a mixture of Charmed and Buffy .

another sad thing is the show only has a few episodes a season.
