CNN reports that True Blood, the HBO series based on the Charlaine Harris novels, is the network’s most successful show since “The Sopranos” and “Sex in the City.” Yippee – because that means more episodes to come! Especially since I have no idea how they’re going to wrap everything up in the finale next week.
I also hope it means more mainstream recognition for all things paranormal. As one of the characters was explaining shape-shifters the other week, I kept thinking, “Who doesn’t know what shape-shifters are?” And then of course I had to laugh a little at myself.
One of the things I like best about the show is the way it’s fleshed out the secondary characters – sometimes almost too much so; they start to overshadow the main ones. Bon Temps, LA, is just full of interesting guys. Who gets your pick?
