For those not in the know: Tru Blood is an new HBO series starring Anna Paquin (Rogue from X-Men) as Suki Stackhouse a telepathic hooters waitress and British actor Stephen Moyer (wait--don't you mean Meyer?) as Bill Compton her vampiric lover. Sounds almost familiar doesn't it? Apparently it's based off of a book series entilted: "The Southern Vampire Mysteries". I've managed to watch the first couple of episodes and I am struck by both the similarities and disparities between the two series. I must say however-- I am excited about the LOLZ, talk about trailer-trash Twilight--the series is set in the deep south. I have posted some clips to give you an idea of hilarity of the situation.
First: The Trailer:


Nobody puts Suki in a corner! (Wow these clips are like 8 mins a piece-- Sorry!)

The Oh-so-MAGICAL Kiss




Does HBO's Tru Blood make a better Twilight?!?!?

Twilight plus HBO-sex? I am IN!

It's too bad they didn't decide to dramatize these books earlier, cuz even if they did come out first, the show will just seem like a twilight ripoff. How sad.

And no. I wouldn't watch it. I'd be tossing so many cookies people would suspect me of bulimia if I did. Blood... *shivers*

Yeah-- it is sad, but if Vamps weren't in they would have never put money behind the show. I myself watch it for the lulz, and so far the lulz abound. (plus I have a relatively high squick tolerance.)

I think almost anyone does. Shoot, who else do you know gets squick sick watching the trauma center game? It's not like it's detailed at all, or bloody. Shoot, there are 7th grade health books that are more graphic. And yet, there go my cookies. Sometimes it's really frustrating. Heh. (But what I saw before I had to shut it off because of the "Ew" factor was indeed, very VERY lulzy.)
