Storyline

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 grantss

Classic!
22 February 2021 | by RobScott-13See all my reviews

True Blood is an extremely entertaining supernatural thriller that has a little of everything. It has comedy, action, drama, love, sex, etc., etc. It really is a classic! It's the best of the vampire genre and has more shocking, intense and exciting moments in one season than most shows have in their entire run! Some seasons toward the end weren't as good but still worth watching and really entertaining!
