I've sunk my teeth into this

i just got the DVDs of the first season of TruBlood, the made for HBO series based on the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris.  Loved the books for years and now i'm enthralled (vamp joke) by the show. It has the right mix of tackiness, humor and horror to keep me completely engaged. Certain characters annoy the hell out of me in the show (ironically, ones that aren't featured in the books) but maybe i'm more tolerant, since i haven't sat down and watched television in four years, because i can ignore them and not let them detract from my enjoyment of some damn fine entertainment.

Oh, I watched every episode. They're going to screw it up, but the first season was great!
