TV: true blood  
We've been enjoying True blood, even though it's very closely based to the orignal books. It's been so long since we read the orginal books that we mostly don't remember stuff. It seems like the show would be more fun if we didn't know some of the things going on, though. Anna Paquin (who played Rogue in the X-man movies) is an interesting Sookie. I really like how they're making the vampires out to be really kind of disturbing and alien socially, even Bill, who is trying his best to be likable to Sookie. It makes me realize just how cartoonish-evil buffy's vampires were. I don't like the fang placement or semi-random lengths, but hey, small pet peeve. I think the casting is pretty good in general and I really love Sookie's grandmother. I'm hoping they don't try to put in any more awkward humor in. We're only three episodes in (watching on netflix.)

I've only just recently become aware of this phenomenon, in either form. I'm debating whether to start watching the show, or start reading the books. From what you're saying, though, it sounds like maybe I should watch the show first?

That's a tough one, actually. I might actually recommend reading the books first, since I know that reading the books and then watching is still fun and entertaining (at least with the memory loss of time.) I don't know if the reverse would be true.

Ooh, I've been wanting to watch this. Thanks for reminding me to bump it up on netflix.
