TrueBlood has pop culture by the jugular. The HBO hit in it's 2nd season has the world in the grip of fang fever. For me the thing that's the most fun about that are on-line debates about who's the hotter vampire, Bill or Eric. Also the battle of the vamps polls with a crossover element that pit the TrueBlood vampires against Twilight's Robert Pattinson. Pattinson's a cutie, but a bit under seasoned for my taste, and i've not seen Twilight, so i can't offer an opinion of his vampire tactics.
i can speak to the hotness factor of Bill, Sookie, Eric, Tara, 'Eggs' Benedict, Lafayette, Jason---oh heck the entire TrueBlood cast is Louisiana in August hot! My new fav character is Terry BelleFleur. Goodness even his name is sexy. Terry played by ruggedly handsome Todd Lowe is the just the right mix of masculinity and vulnerability. my other fav is [as she's referred to by fans, baby-vamp] Jessica. Funny, infuriating, tragic, sexy. Jessica, played by Deborah Ann Woll is all that and more.
my wish for more screen time---and it still could stand some increase, for the character Deputy Kenya came true. i'm still peeved that her image, bio, etc have not been included on HBO's site. Sheriff Dearborne, and Det. Andy Bellefleur are there---Deputy Kenya played by Tanya Wright should be too.
Sookie Stackhouse discovering Dallas hotel bellman Barry is a telepath, was fun. They have good chemistry, strong potential for a good platonic bond. Hope he gets over wanting to distance himself from her. The reveal of shape-shifter Daphne's secret was fun. At last, Sam has someone to whom he can relate. i'm still troubled by the scratches on her back when she's in her human form. Is Maryann responsible for those. Still, i hope it works out for Daphne and Sam. Speaking of Maryann---that maenad skeers the beJesus out of me---i don't care if the woman does throw the best get-togethers BonTemps has ever seen.

TrueBlood gets better and better every episode. my fav scenes from Season 2 episode 5 "Never Let Me Go" are when Sookie tells Bill he "has a heart, whether it beats or not". A few seconds later Bill asks in that irresistible drawl, "what do you want Sookie? Say it" and she replies she "wants him...every which way". Whew! Lawdy Lawdy Lawdy Ms.Stackhouse and Mr.Compton.
HBO's TrueBlood airs Sundays at 9:00pm EST, please check your local listings.
