Do you know nothing of our history?

If you haven't seen True Blood on HBO, you've missed out on some of the greatest moments on television. True Blood, without a doubt, is probably one of the most controversial, violent, sexualized, and satirical giants on TV. If you don't think so, change the channel and see for yourself.
Within the first season, you're hooked. The characters highly unique and perfectly limned, the music is enchanting, and the actors are wonderful. I don't think that I've ever been attached to a full cast of actors before. And as for the content and the plot...I was also impressed with what I saw. Every season builds up enough suspense for an explosive season finale. With that said, it's a great show to watch for the first time, if you want to be on the edge of your seat, practically begging your TV to show you the very next episode right away. Why? Because True Blood is bloody brilliant.
