Well done - and faithful to the novels!
17 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the trilogy (I recommend to all whether you watch the series or not - very good!) and while reading I couldn't help but imagine what a great trilogy of movies they would make! But a TV series? Even BETTER! There are so many characters in the books and so many parallel story lines that a series is the only way to do justice to the books - and justice they have done so far with episode one! But of course with both Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan directing/producing, what could possibly go wrong!? To whit - nothing! The series is well cast! I love all 3 leads, Eph, Nora and especially - Abraham. And the first episode I found simply riveting! Even though I know how everything ends up, I am going to relish each episode! I won't give out any spoilers here - all I can and will do is assure you if you stick with the series you are in for a helluva ride! As the series True Blood draws to a close this year and thankfully Twilight is concluded, it's high time for a new kind of terrifying vampire - not some handsome man but a scary, deadly, disgusting beast! Oh, I just can't wait!
