Thought: More “True Blood” vs. “Twilight” talk, which franchise is better???

A lot of people like to argue that “True Blood” TV series is better than the “Twilight Saga” franchise. People think the writing in “True Blood” is better and the acting is better than the “Twilight” franchise. It should be no secret to you, that I’m no fan of “True Blood” and I find the “Twilight” franchise to be better. A lot of people accuse “Twilight” of being a Jerry Springer like soap opera, when the reality is, “True Blood” is pretty much the same thing. The writing is good in “True Blood”? Are you serious?

I find “True Blood” to be very overrated. The writing for the show is horrible for a lot of reasons. I think “True Blood” makes the vampire genre so embarrassing, it’s not even funny. Why??? Does “True Blood” tell good stories? Every time I try to watch the show, I just don’t get it. “True Blood” is more soft-core porn than actual storytelling. Stephenie Meyer’s got the vampire thing, right, ’cause she wants to show that vampires don’t have to concentrate on sex. I don’t understand why people find, “True Blood” so good when everyone complains about soap operas in the entertainment business. Lot of hypocrisy there.

In “True Blood”, the show wants vampire to feel part of this world, while, in “Twilight” Stephenie wants vampires to stay away from humans and be more mysterious. That’s the way vampires should be done.

I think Lafayette making an AIDS burger scene to be offensive, doesn’t make any sense in so many ways. I can go on for hours on how “True Blood” is such a horrible series for vampires but people in facebook are all over this show, talking about it, saying how great it is. Yes, I believe “True Blood” will get it’s own movie for the big screen, once the show is over and done with on TV, like what happened to “Star Trek” and “Sex and the City”. That will happen down the road, I’m sure. I don’t watch “True Blood” ’cause I find it an embarrassment that they turn it into soft-core porn. It’s just as simple as that.

I know vampires are supposed to be sexual, but it needs to be done the right way. Anne Rice does sex with vampires the right way, “True Blood” just doesn’t cut it. Sorry, “True Blood” fans!

  1. I agree with you on some of your points about “True Blood.” It has some problems. But as a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse and Twilight books I think that “True Blood” is a better adaptaion. “TB” recognizes that they are kinda campy where “Twilight” takes themselves to serious at times. My biggest problem with the “Twilight” films is the pacing. They condence the time so much that they’re relationship comes out of no where. It feels like this intense love affair comes out of a week vs. the months it forms in the books.
