Who else just sits back and slowly licks their lips when this is on? Who's your type? Vampire Bill, Jason Stackhouse, or someone else?
Me? I'm a Team Jason guy. But Bill's voice, well, damn, "Mah deah Sookie," it's sexy!
unl1988 saidOK, I have never seen the show, the guys look very handsome - - BUT - - what is the attraction of the vampire genre?
I read this thread this morning and it has been bothering me all day. Can anyone explain it?
swguy30 saidI LOVE this show. I'm totally addicted to it in fact. I believe this show is more than just about Vampires. It also deals with social issues that have great parallels with the Gay/Straight issues in our society. The struggles of Vampires in the show follow some of what Gay people in American culture have fought for....in loose terms albeit.
My personal favorite was the vampire Liam from the first season. VERY handsome guy!!! And that's putting it mildly. His real name is Graham Shiels....you can google him for a good time ;)
Magnus08 saidMan you have to read "Vampire Cronicles" of Anne Rice! Think about it again cause no vampire is hot as Lestat! Universal prepares to reinvent the frachise! Robert Downey is in talks for the role! Who knows, when Tom Cruise got the role, Rice refused him first!
RedKoste saidWell with True Blood it's not just about vampires. It's myths being reality and vampires are just a small part. I think it's definitely more of a sci fi or fantasy story. In fact my bookstore doesn't even shelve the Sookie Stackhouse books in the horror section but in the sci fi area instead. It's like an alternate reality of our world where the supernatural exists and isn't just lurking in the dark. It's full on out there and in your face! The show is definitely sexy and sometimes it's what they don't do or show that makes it so.
Anyway, it's great escapism. I always did like my sci fi or fantasy to come with hot and complicated characters. Sexy!
...I know this much is true....I want to do real bad things with you...
