I have to tell you right off the bat that I haven’t watched a single episode of True Blood. I know, I know, what the hell is wrong with me? It’s just that Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Justified, The Big Bang Theory, and a whole lot of life got in the way. So you can imagine that when I had this teaser to cover, that I might be a little confused, but I’ve been confused before.
I might have finally figured out what everyone was so excited about when it comes to True Blood. When it first started, I was pretty burned out on vampires. Twilight’s sparkling, brooding vampires did me in.
Suddenly everyone I knew that wasn’t nerdy was into vampires and wanted to talk to me about it, but I’m a 30 Days of Night, and Stakeland kind of vampire guy. I could never get over the fact that vampires are predators who could never control their hunger, let alone love some human enough to not suck them dry at the first chance.
So you can understand my reluctance to check out a new vampire series. After watching this teaser, I have to say that I am interested.
Well, looks like I will loading up on supplies, plenty of Diet Coke, Cheetos and beef jerky so I can binge watch six seasons over the weekend. Now I have to find out what the hell is going on and where everyone in town is. I mean, their not all vampires are they? Do the regular people know that they live with a bunch of vampires? Shit, Now I’m gonna have to get involved with a whole new fandom.
What about you?
