If you haven’t seen HBO’s True Blood, maybe Anna Paquin’s Golden Globe win last night will solidify things enough for you to check it out. I have been talking about it with friends and family for way too long now!
This quirky show about the civilization and co-habitation with humans of vampires is not only witty and unabashedly sarcastic but so happens to make very current social, racial, and sexual commentary — although metaphorical in delivery.
Yeah, there is blood — tons of it — and gore but if you look not too far behind that, you see the writers are trying to paint a more cerebral picture for you to ponder. Plus, not to mention the backdrop just happens to be New Orleans!
Anna’s character is a hoot but also check out character Rene Lenier played perfectly by Michael Raymond-James! His Yat dialect is sooooo cute!
Again, this show is a must-watch!
