Sookie on TV

So I have been awaiting the new HBO series True Blood with mixed feelings. See forever ago Phos wrote about the Sookie Stackhouse series and I decided I check it out. I totally loved the books so I was sort of excited when I heard it was going to be made into a series. Last night the first episode aired and it wasn't as bad as I feared. While Sookie in my mind didn't quiet match the actress they chose the others came pretty close as did the story line. Granted the accents were killing me and I don't remember Tara being such an angry obnoxius woman but Jason and Sam are pretty hot and Lafayette made me laugh. Some of the scenes/talk seem more X-rated than I remember but oh well its HBO I guess.
Now I am awaiting next weeks episode :)

Glad they kept it somewhat true to the book, SciFi did a good job on the Jim Butcher series but then canceled it. crap.

The second episode has a lot less sex in it however I think it goes a long way towards humanizing several of the characters. Tara chills out just a little and we understand the brother a little better but I still don't like him that much.

However I got kinda annoyed when the second episode ended just like the first, with Sookie in danger and in need of rescue.

Dino aka Katy said...

Phos - well thanks for introducing me to Ms Harris.

Jared - you were right about the second episode. I guess they do it to be sure more people turn in.

EC - well i admit I don't visit as often as I should I do read you in my feed reader.

Phos - bummed but still around

thats pretty impressive- i've always been disappointed by a visual adaptation of a book i've read.
