Thursday's Blog 3/11/10

Thursday, March 11, 2010

I've mentioned before that I love just about anything vampire-related. And near the top of that list is HBO's series, True Blood. So this Thursday's blog(s) are all about True Blood!! C'mon - admit it - you like the show! And if you haven't seen it yet - well, you may not know what you're missing, but I'm going to show you! I've even managed to get Gus hooked on it. He resisted since the start of Season 1, but when I got the DVDs, I told him to watch just one episode to see if he liked it. I think he watched Season 1 in less than a week. It would be rude of me to point out that I was right, wouldn't it?

If you haven't seen the first season, get those DVDs!! Add them to your Netflix queue, borrow them from your local library (or a friend), or buy them! I was able to get them at Target right after Christmas for only $17.99. I'm assuming that Season 2 will be out on DVD around the time that Season 3 airs.

Season 3 will be starting this summer and I can't wait!! Of course, I devour any spoilers I can find. Yes, I've read the books, so I'm familiar with the characters - but the series doesn't follow the books exactly, so it keeps me guessing. Unfortunately, the spoilers only whet my appetite more rather than giving me instant gratification! I'm a TB junkie!

And now, just a few words about True Blood...


Let it be known that I am a loyal, die-hard, faithful-til-the-end Eric fan. Bill bugs the crap out of me and I wish Sookie would just get with Eric already! LOL! Eric is definitely the hottest guy on the show - which is saying a lot considering that there are a lot of good-looking guys on TB. However...I will say that I am pretty pleased with their choice of Joe Manganiello to play Alcide in Season 3:

 

What's not to like, right?? Whew. Lets just hope that he shifts a lot so that we can see him sans clothing.  :-) He could be some serious competition for Eric - you know how I like those Italian guys. (Yes, Gus is Italian.)

You can follow HBOTrueBlood & BonTempsGossip on Twitter, 

So how many other TB fans are out there?

I cannot wait until Season 2 comes out on DVD. We don't have HBO, so I have to wait and I will probably always be a season behind but oh well. I'm rather enjoying Eric myself..
