True Awesomeness
11 August 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Released the same year as the incredibly awful Twilight, which I had to turn off after 30 minutes, I dismissed True Blood as just another teen vampire show. How wrong I was....and happy to be so.

For once someone got it right. All the topics that most people wouldn't touch with a really really long stick are all here and in your face. From voodoo, paganism, witchcraft, homosexuality, vampires, werewolves, you name it it's probably in there.

The thing that strikes me most about this show however is how they portray both sides of the simmering human/vampire feud. It makes it really hard to take sides when you've got so much character depth and insight into what makes them who and what they have become.

The show is expertly written with humor and razor sharp dialog. The characters are ALL fantastic and hard to fault. Kudos to Ryan Kwanten aka Jason Stackhouse who does a superb job of playing a dumb ass redneck American. You'd never pick he is actually an intelligent Aussie bloke. And Nelsan Ellis who plays Lafayette Reynolds is just awesome. I don't think I'd like Kristin Bauer who plays Pam De Beaufort as much if she wasn't such a foul mouthed b#@ch.

My only complaint, and it's a purely selfish one, is I would like to see more on Sookies fey ancestry.

Uncensored, uninhibited, unashamed TV at it's finest. Shut up and take note writers and producers and learn a few lessons from a show that pushes the boundaries and isn't just another pile of steaming predictability.
