people actually read this stuff?  
Another book series I read is being turned into a TV series. I'm really not sure how effective it will be, we'll have to see. But it's the Sookie books! (Charlaine Harris) It's also staring the actress who played rogue in the x-man movies, so that might be a draw for some people I know.

It's on HBO, so I won't get to see it first run, but on to the netflix queue to goes.

I'm still sad that lifetime dropped Blood Ties. I was so hopping some Canadian channel would pick it back up. The actors were too. And of course it was sad about Dresden too.

Blood Ties
I just started watching Blood Ties. Bummer. I was enjoying it.

Can you explain what the main character's supernatural connection is/was? I haven't managed to figure that out yet.

Re: Blood Ties
Vicki? In the first expisode she's tracking a demon summoner who tatoos her with those strange marks on her wrists. The series doesn't really explore much what they are or what they do, other than "something." Tracking down the demon is also how she meets Henry.

Re: Blood Ties
While the first episode's plot was directly taken from the first book in the series, the tatoos were not part of the series. They departed from the books in a few important places, but I think they were all important to making it a better TV show. There is an interview with Tanya Huff where she explains some of the changes, and she was given good reasons for most of them.
