Vampire Porn

I'm so over Edward.

My friend Mishel, who was equally sucked in by the Twilight books, told me about True Blood on HBO.

I downloaded Season 1 to my iPhone before we left for Spain. Bad idea.

Similar to Twilight, there's just something about the story that sucks you in. The characters are quirky and you fall in love with them, each in a different way. It addresses racism head on. It's shockingly graphic in terms of violence and sex. And it's romantic, too. In real life, the two main characters are involved, which only adds to the intrigue.

I can't figure out why I'm hooked. I'm not a vampire person. I have never watched horror flicks. Blood sends me running for the loo. But apparently I'm not the only one drawn in by this. The series is said to be reviving HBO, drawing in the highest number of viewers per episode since The Sopranos.

It's on Sundays at 9p. Come join the fun.

I just finished watching Season 1 last night!!! Wasn't hooked at first, but by the end I wanted more. Twilight still is my favorite :)

Now I'm going to read the books. Chris would like me to read/watch anything but vampires right now!!!

Cracking up at your first line. I just watched episode 2 season 1 and I'm loving it too! Although way graphic I agree. Vampires are the new cougar meat I think!

That's so funny, my friend just told me about that series. I've only watched a few episodes, but I'm hooked too!
