Im about to start watching this series soon, its the next dvd in my Netflix queue...I hope I like it. I usually love vampires & I loved Moonlight but I could never get into the Whedon vampire shows...
Something to keep in mind when you see this show ... Charlaine Harris is foremost a mystery writer. It's just in her blood. So while there are definitely supernatural elements in the Southern Vampire series of books, each one is, at its core, a mystery book.
True Blood, the series based on her books, takes that core and runs with it. There are changes (a lot of them, really), but at its heart, it's a mystery series that happens to also have supernaturals in it.
Vampires, Weres, and other creatures of myth and legend.
