Set in modern times, vampires roam the Earth and are humans' mortal enemies. However, a substitute has been found for human blood, a substitute that vampires can consume with the same effect as human blood. This is True Blood. Now humans and vampires can co-exist in harmony, and even form relationships. But there will always be rogue elements on both sides ready to exploit the uneasy truce.Written by
Michael Raymond-James hired a dialect coach to pull off a Cajun accent. The two worked closely on the script, inserting French into Rene's dialogue for effect. Some people found it hard to understand this, because his accent was that authentic. The dialect coach did the same work with Michael Jeter on The Green Mile (1999). See more »
A general issue throughout the series is that Bill allowed Sookie to be beat and subsequently gave her his blood the night they met. Those events actually happened the next night, the second night they knew each other. See more »

I write this review as a "want to be writer". Not someone with any real skill or credibility. However when you want to become a writer as a youth it is usually driven from the art of actually writing. Dialogue, action and character development. This show is very well written, Alan ball clearly is gifted. Not just skill but talent. I think this show was only good for 5 seasons and they should have left it at that. Shows make the mistake of going on, not just because they can. Because the audience ask for it, I remember Vince Gilligan saying he could have had more seasons of breaking bad, but chose not to. I didn't understand at the time but I do now. This show is not meant to go on and on, it's a story. It was meant to end at the right time. This could easily have gotten 10 stars from me if they made this show 5 seaons.
