There are very few shows I even watch live anymore, but this is one of the ones I simply cannot miss.
No spoilers here, but there were a lot of cliffhangers from the end of last season, and they all get more or less resolved in this season's debut.
If you've been following the press, you'll know that the cop from L&A SVU is joining the cast as the Vampire Authority head honcho. He isn't in the
season's first show, but no doubt will be in the second.
If the first show is any indication though, we're in for a great season again!
For those who've never seen the show, this is a REAL vampire show (real as in realistic), with all of the savagery, sex, and gore that goes with it.
No sparkling vampires here. Heck, last season, a vamp ripped out a reporter's spine on national TV, just to give you an idea. This is not your
wife's girly vampire teen angst show.
The premise is that researchers invented synthetic blood. An advance that vampires used to then go public (claiming they are no longer a threat, since
the synthetic works now). Of course, with immortal life spans, super speed, super strength, and mind control, they are more than a match for any 10
humans. The interesting thing about the show (other than sex and violence, and good story arcs), is that it supposes the vampires have their own
politics...something in place for eons to maintain their secrecy and agendas from the mortals.
The main character (Sookie) is part fairy (so she found out last season), but these aren't Tinkerbell type fairies. Still, she can read minds, and
this is what attracts her to the vamps. She can't read them, so she finds them "safe".
