    Given it was the season opener and they were just setting things up it was pretty good. However, knowing TB, they are saving the best for the middle of the season. I must say, seeing Eric naked was awesome. I can’t wait for the next episode!

    The premiere was well worth the wait! Hats off to Alan Ball, the writers and the whole cast and crew! I laughed (Andy & Jason), sighed (Eric’s basement hobby) and had an OMG (Sam’s dream), When it ended I felt like “hold on tight, it’s gonna be one hell of a ride.” Best line of the night had to be “Conscience off. D i c k on. And everything’s gonna be alright.”

    True Blood vampires don’t sparkle. And they eat sparkling vampires for breakfast.
    That’s all I’m gonna say.

    I watched it illegally online and I’m sure a couple million others did, too. If HBO were cheaper, or my cable company didn’t charge $10K for the package that contains the channel, the number of people actually watching the show each week would be much higher. Hear that, cable companies??

    I LOVE this show!!! They don’t even count the ppl who are watching on the internet…. this show has so many viewers!

    If HBO was smart it was market TB online like Itunes, that way they can make some of the revenue and get a better idea of the customer base. Whatever, TB fans are smart enough to watch their show.

    Yay! A pic of someone other than Alexander Skarsgard in a post about True Blood! I KNEW you could do it, Jared! lol

    I love the sexy Swedish dude, but sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. Particularly since posts featuring AS always end up being about his relationship with the unmentionable blonde – and as we all established at the True Blood premiere she has nothing to do with True Blood. So i’m sorry for even mentioning it here now – dammit, see how easy it is to fall into that trap? Her publicist is just that good at getting her into peoples’ minds!

    Truly, bloody fantastic news about the ratings increase – let’s all do our bit to help keep this show alive! Or undead – however you choose to see it haha

    Also found Alex Skarsgard as Eric acting to be forced and chessy esp the phone scene that dude can’t act…………but the rest of the show was great……
