    Anna Paquin is a horrible actor, I don't know how anyone here can think she isn't, she is simply horrible.

    The only reason she got the part is because she's naked a lot. In that regard the show is a porno because most of the acting is weak at best.

    Actually, Anna's contract has a no-nudity clause. Which means, when she got the part, there was not going to be ANY nudity from her. The nudity only began with her after she was in a relationship with Moyer, and was comfortable enough to forgo that clause.

    In that regard, your post is now invalidated.

    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.

    I'm not sure Maryann's "husband" is literally the devil but he's definitely in that league. Without giving away details, what's going on with her is far older than Christianity is and what/who she is trying to bring forth is definitely ancient evil/anarchy.

    The series is good. It has a surprising amount of nudity and simulated sex acts but definitely not porno. Softcore at best in it's raunchiest and it's treated as a part of the series, not as an excuse to show people doing wild sex acts (Phlox's has to be the best/worst one yet) and being gratuitous.

    It's on par with the amount of violence we see in the series, which itself is actually no more violent than some network series depict. The difference is in the graphic depiction itself. So for example, someone in a network series gets shot or stabbed, we may see some blood. In True Blood, it gushes more realistically or is more believably a wound of that nature.

    I always find it odd people are okay with excessive violence but you show someone's tits or a sex act and suddenly it's taboo. Like beating someone to a literal bloody pulp is okay but seeing two people screwing is obscene and offensive.

    Aside from the fact that she won an Oscar for THE PIANO . . . ?

    She was also good in the X-MEN movies and ALMOST FAMOUS.

    Anybody who appears in a movie where Harvey Keitel shows his penis should win some sort of award. That is probably pretty traumatizing when he starts waving that sucker around.

    ooookay I just saw the first 2 eps and Im HOOKED! Its amazing how tame Moonlight is compared to this naughty beast of a show. :lol:

    Im already in love with Bill & I love the bar owner looking over Sookie.(I know what his "deal" is thanks to a spoiler, though I dont know exactly why so Im looking forward to that being explained.) I just hope they dont ruin my love for these 2 by making either of them do something unlikable later on. I also like Sookie's bro even though he's an idiot and a scumbag(but he's funny).:lol: I cant stand Tara though, yeesh she's annoying! Sookie's grandma- she's a goner isnt she? she's just too sweet to stick around in this type of show.:(
