True Blood and “Do Bad Things”
Alright, so it took me a long time to finally sit down and watch True Blood. I’ve been meaning to catch it, but never found the time. I was afraid I’d watch one and then watch them all straight through in a single weekend… Anyway, all of the promotional subway posters have been driving me crazy. They all have “Do Bad Things” written on them and I actually own the domain: dobadthings.com… Another project that I’ve been meaning to start! Need more time… So tonight I finally gave in and checked out the show. Let’s just say I was shocked to hear “Do Bad Things” in the theme song…! What?!
First episode was awesome all the way through. I’m a fan of vampires stories and so far I’m loving this one.
I hope all episodes are this good and full of so much character development and content. Hope they can keep pushing the story forward.
I hate to start off this post with “Anna Paquin is hot”… but.. I can’t help it! She’s great. It’s amusing that she plays the tormented X-Man Rogue, who can’t help but steal powers just by touching someone, and now this character who can hear thoughts at almost an overwhelming rate.
The Sookie mystery has me hooked. I love the mind reading. It’s throwing me off (right along with Bill) It has me wondering about her parents. Whether she’s part vampire or something else. Anne Rice’s vampires could read minds, but other vampires could close off their minds to them if they were strong enough. It’s interesting, at first I thought Bill was hearing the thoughts right along side her… but no. Looking forward to finding out more!
I love that Bill seems to be in as much thrall with Sookie as she is with him. When she is around him all other thoughts are blotted out… How does she know when he enters a room (and Sam?)… Was he drawing her in, or just another part of her mystery.
The dream scene was hilarious, but obvious.
Sookie: “I never thought I’d be having sex with you. At least, not so fast.”
Bill: “Do you realize that every person in this establishment is staring at us right now?”
- Tara is awesome. Love her!
