    I don't know if this subject has come up yet but I think this show is the best thing to happen to TV since Entourage. Did anyone else notice the entire undertone of this show is about gay rights? All the "vampire issues" dealing with religious radicals and political injustice is mirroring many of the same issues we are facing today. Now of course this is tv and they make it more exciting by adding the danger factor but still I love it. Anyone else like it? Not like it?

    Love it! I've noticed that a lot of the subtext tends to be about civil rights in general and people accepting each other.

    Haven't seen it yet. My friends were over the other night (straight couple) and were telling me they read this whole thing in entertainment weekly that said the same thing. Sounds like it's worth watching, but what's with the whole vampire trend lately?

    Yessir, Ryan Kwanten. You know at least one of the writers is gay they try and get this guy naked at least once per episode.

    I haven't seen the new episodes yet, but I've very excited. Michelle Forbes is going to be a great edition to the ensemble. She does cast iron bitch like nobody else.

    The books are great, and Charlene does love her gays.

    I'm interested to see if they expand Eric's character much. In his backstory, he was turned by a guy and was his lover for a few centuries.

    Yes, love it. Just watched this week's episode. Big Thumbs up!

    P.S. Love Entourage too, since you mentioned that one also.

    I'd be more inclined to say Twilight's older brother that actually has gone through puberty and is in his freshman year at college.

    I can't get enough of this show. I'm looking for a man just like Bill. Who cares if he's dead? He's cute, he's got a great body, and he drives a BMW. icon_lol.gif
