The popularity of this new show on HBO, a vampire series “True Blood” that stars Anna Paquin, is possibly one of the worst shows on television. I’m sorry but it’s that bad. I hate it. I tried to watch several episodes, but the writers of these vampires series has made the vampire supernatural look embarrassing and silly.
In “True Blood”, they try to make it look cool by having vampires be part of our everyday lives.Vampires that have families, they live in their own homes and lives part of the town, they even work jobs as well. Lame.
Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” is more realistic and different. In “Twilight”, Stephenie’s versions of vampires don’t die in the sunlight, they don’t die with a stake in the heart, and not afraid of garlic. The only way to kill a vampire in “Twilight” is to rip it to pieces and burn it to ashes.
In “True Blood”, however…they do die with a stake in the heart and die in sunlight, only survive at night. They are afraid of the cross, hate garlic, but there are new additions…silver hurts them, and fire also kills them.
The acting in “True Blood” is really bad and the stories are just silly, it’s almost like a soap opera circus, a complete rip off to “Dark Shadows”.
Stephenie’s “Twilight” is better because she makes the vampire stories seem realistic as if it’s actually happening. “True Blood” doesn’t do that.
I love vampire stories, it’s my favorite in the horror genre, but I prefer Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” or “Nosferatu” for my vampire fix. “True Blood” is complete garbage and I don’t understand why people watch it. I think it’s because they know nothing about vampires yet and now vampire stories are getting mainstream again, new people that are just getting into it are seeing what this vampire stuff is all about.
These are coming from people who don’t read classic vampire stories from the 1950’s or don’t watch the classic vampire movies like all the Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee stuff. Those are true vampire stories in my opinion.
“True Blood” wants to change it all and I don’t like it. Stephenie’s stories with “Twilight” is exceptionally great, but I prefer the old classic vampire stuff. That’s the way to be.
Vampires are supposed to be scary and frightening. “True Blood” isn’t doing that. I think people watch it because of the sexual content plus they find Anna Paquin hot. I don’t even find her to be that great looking to be honest. She’s not a sexy vampire.
I would prefer Kate Beckinsale in “Underworld” or Ann Parillaud in “Innocent Blood”, they are sexy female vampires, in my opinion.
I wish “True Blood” would get cancelled, but sadily, I see the show going on for a long time since it’s mainstream popularity.
