While Anne is off playing at the Lori Foster Event (and I'm jealous, too, btw), I'm going to talk about my guilty pleasure. Last weekend Kelley talked about her discovery of The Tudors. If you don't watch that, it's a Showtime Series and verrrrrry hot.
My guilty pleasure is True Blood. It's based on the Southern Vampire Series, Sookie Stackhouse stories by Charlaine Harris and has been converted to television by HBO and Alan Ball (Six Feet Under). It's a fabulous show. Dark, funny, sexy, and so totally NOT for the squeemish. During season one, Sookie (the waitress) who is also telepathic meets Bill, the vampire (and a southern gentlemen) and yes, the attraction was instantaneous. We also meet an entire cast of colorful, eccentric characters, all living in small town Louisianna. So while Bill and Sookie are falling in love and having adventures of their own, someone is killing women in this little town.
I'm not kidding. I'm so addicted to this show. Every Sunday night we raced to the tube to watch and actually went through withdrawals when they went on hiatus to film season two. I satisfied my craving by catching up on the 'fan boards'. Now if that's not nuts, I don't know what is.
At the end of May, I picked up the entire first season on dvd and I've been watching but if you don't have a copy of your own, it can be rented or watched again on HBO (if you have it). Now season two is getting ready to start and I'm psyched. Although I have to admit, I'm worried that one of my favorite characters might be DEAD. YIKES.
So what's your guilty pleasure and why? And if you are a True Blood fan, who is your favorite character? When it comes to a showdown between Bill, the southern gentleman vampire, or Eric, the hot viking vampire, which is your favorite. Wait, let me put on my Horny Viking Hat!
