Wildly entertaining and shockingly hilarious, Alan Ball has turned Charlaine Harris’ vampire mystery novels into television’s most interesting show. The series revolves around Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin, who is a beautiful and quirky telepathic barmaid living in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. Her life gets turned upside when vampires ‘come out of the coffin’ and start co-existing with the human residents of her small town. Things really get going when she starts an unlikely romance with a 173 year old Civil War veteran and local vampire named Bill.

This show has been continually climbing in the ratings since its first season and for good reason. It offers the perfect combination of gore, lust and political satire. It provides a unique spin on pop culture that appeals to a broad range of audiences. Unlike so many vampire dramas, «True Blood» isn’t endlessly grim and full of angst; in fact some of the characters, especially Sookie, are downright cheery. Other Bon Temps residents include Sookie’s sexy yet dumb bad-boy brother Jason, her sweet liberal boss Sam and her sarcastic, loud-mouthed best friend Tara. All the characters provide the plot with plenty of unique plot twists. Several new characters have also entered the scene this past season and are sure to wreak havoc in the upcoming third season. Most notably, Eric, a vampire sheriff and owner of the local vampire bar Fangtasia, presents an opening for a potential love triangle with Sookie and Bill.

«True Blood» certainly provides its audience with some classic vampire fair, including lots of gore and fangs; however it also offers a fresh take on the traditional vampire storyline. The third season is sure to offer plenty of surprising twists and turns as the show continues to distance itself from the original book series. Die hard fans will have to be patient though, as the third season isn’t set to air on HBO until June 2010. In case you missed a few episodes last season, you can always watch free tv shows online for free!
