Ooo, ooo, ooo!

I am actually dancing in my seat, I am so excited! I just found out that the first season of True Blood is available On Demand. Yes! Yes! Yes!

You see, I am a HUGE Sookie Stackhouse fan, the series of books upon which they based TrueBlood. My amazing Mum and Dad (aka British in-laws) are the total BOMB and bought me the first seven books for Christmas. One week later, I was tearing apart my Borders to find book 8, From Dead to Worse. Book 9, Dead and Gone, just came out this month and I was completely incommunicato until I finished it.

Anywho, back to TrueBlood. I just finished the first episode and it ROCKED. Normally I scoff at movie versions of books; they don't have the depth of the book. However, I TrueBlood did a great job. It was different, but I felt that if you hadn't read the books you would still love the characters.

Anna Paquin (she of the youngest Oscar ever) plays a great version of the trying-to-be-ditzy-but-really-street-smart Sookie. I didn't think much of the casting originally but she really brings a nice air to the character.

The video at the end is the opening sequence. Totally creepy and Southern in the same sentence. The song's Bad Things by Jace Everett.
Anywho, I highly suggest a viewing. Or even better - read the books!

I have never seen an episode and never read the books but I am watching episode 9 as we speak. I can't stop and I HAVE to read the books now!
