Vampire love comes to HBO

If anyone out there likes vampires, Louisiana, sex, Anna Paquin and watching TV (and who doesn’t?), here is the show for you.  True Blood. HBO’s new series debuted last Sunday,  adapted by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) and taken from Charlaine Harris‘ (From Dead to Worse, Ice Cold Grave) Southern vampire novels.

The story is set in a small Louisiana town, when availability to synthetic blood allows the main vampire lover, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), to consort with humans without snacking on them.  Oh, but there is plenty of steam, violence, and sexual tension to sink your, well, you get the drift.  Check out the show on HBO, Sundays, 9 p.m.  And if you don’t have HBO and are curious, watch the small 1:30 trailer at the series’s website.
