    I no longer have HBO but want to still be able to catch true blood. Does anyone have a website they use to watch it for free?

    floridajockguy saidWhat is it about? I have seen some comments on various threads. Guess I should google it. hah a


    The spoiler-free backstory: After hiding for centuries, vampires have "come out of the coffin" and publicly acknowledged their existence to humanity, following the invention of a functional artificial blood that (supposedly) meets all of their nutritional needs. The show is set a couple of years later, in Bon Temps, Louisiana; most of the action revolves around Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress at the town's main bar (Merlotte's), and her friends and family. Of course, everything in Bon Temps changes once it gets its first vampire...

    There are a lot of easy parallels between gays coming out and vampires revealing their existence; for one, not every human responds favorably to vampires. There are also some significant gay characters, including my favorite, Lafayette:

    And, of course, there's some eye candy as well. (C'mon, it's an HBO show; there's always T&A.)

    But the real draw, at least for me, is how the characters develop over time. They go through a lot of shit, and it's fascinating to watch how each of them deals with it. Because of that, I would suggest you Netflix the first season: start from the beginning and avoid spoilers, and see how well you like it.

    Great description jim_stl.

    I will add that the first season is solid, however, there is a TON of backstory dispensed during each episode. Therefore, the manner in which it unfolds which can make it seem tedious at times. However, the payoff is quite worth it and it allowed the second and third seasons to flow easier. The character development is the best on summer TV and Alan Ball knows how to build suspense to fervent levels.

    For those looking for the eye candy, google Jason Stackhouse. icon_razz.gif

    Thanks! It's very true that the first season has a looooot of backstory - in addition to establishing the different characters, they also have to build the universe - but I agree that it's worth the trouble.

    And yes, Jason is definitely eye candy, but he isn't the only piece... I wouldn't kick Sam out of bed for barking, if you know what I mean.

    Word. Sam is MUCH more my type, but since most people are looking for gym bunnies around here, Jason Stackhouse is their scantily clad beefcake.

    I added my description because I've heard from a few people that they couldn't get into the show because it started off slowly. I had to say ... The pacing picks up, BE PATIENT!

    You can also download the torrent file at the following link and watch it at your convenience. I am in the process of downloading the first three seasons.

    I then watch it using Vuze (I use Linux Ubuntu rather than Windows.)

    meh if I ever want to watch a show online streaming, I google this:

    megavideo.com/?v= Show name s01e01


    For those that don't understand the numbers, it means Season 01 Episode 01.

    The results that pop up will have URLS where you can watch the TV show. for example

    bla bla www.megavideo.com/?v=DJ38WLA93 bla bla bla

    Copy and paste the URL and you can start watching.

    Truly an awesome show. I watch very little TV anymore, but this is a must see. Got season 1 from the library, and ended up buying season 1-3 DVDs. Couple of episodes into season 3, and just ordered HBO for a few months, so I can watch season 4 (which just started).

    It does start off slow at times in season 1 (there is a lot of dumb drama between Sookie and Bill, felt like a 13 year old girl's show at times), but the characters are so intricately drawn later on and lots of plot twists. Season 2 was great.

    And as an aside, I could watch the theme song/intro all day. Love the Chris Isaak like song and fascinatingly disturbing images.

    Agreed and I would also attest that the end of episode songs are frequently incredible. Very on point with the plot lines and quite good!

    Just an FYI

    Announced job cuts by U.S. companies in the TV and film industries and other media sectors rose to 4,085 during the first half of 2011 from 3,578 in the year-ago period, according to outsourcing consultancy Challenger, Gray and Christmas.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/media-job-cuts-first-rise-208445

    This is due to you guys downloading illegal copies of movies and music.

    I have coworkers who are in their 40s with kids in high school who were laid off to cut company cost. They are now in a panic since they don't know how they are going to pay off their day to day bills.

    STOP THE FUCKING ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING.
