Thought: I don’t still get “True Blood’…

So the season premiere of “True Blood – Season 4” is on tonight. I try to watch some of the reruns on HBO, but every time I try, I switch the channel and can’t sit through one episode. My opinion on the show still stays the same. I don’t like it.

Yes, I love vampire stories. Love to read vampire books, watch vampire films, and TV shows, but not “True Blood”. I see it more as a softcore gay porn show and the storytelling isn’t good, in my opinion. Plus, I think the show is pretty overrated.

I always thought “Dark Shadows” was the best show on vampires, “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” was great too. It’s just that “True Blood” isn’t a good show. I wish the show would get canceled but I have this bad feeling that the show will run for a very long time. It’s going to last for several seasons or more, I’m sure.

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!

Thought: “True Blood” is the worst garbage I’ve ever seen, why is the show so popular? I think I know why!

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.
