((The HBO series also benefits from proximity to this week's much-anticipated release of the "Twilight" movie, another spooky drama about a girl and the vampire who loves her. Another parallel: "Twilight" is also based on a literary series. (HBO, like CNN, is a unit of Time Warner.) ))
Alan Ball, Six Feet Under, is the headmaster behind this show. It has some Alan Ball moments too. Anna Paquin stars in the show. (The girl from X-Men)
I’m not going to lie; somehow this new show has gotten my attention. At first, I didn’t think I’d like the show, but overtime I can’t stop watching it. Plus, HBO makes it easier for me to watch it because they reshow it a few times in the week.
I think the concept is brilliant.
What would happen if the whole world discovered that Vampires were real and living among us?
I like how Vampires are considered second-class citizens, but the higher up vamps don’t like humans. It was also revealed there are shape shifters and werewolves in this universe as well. There’s something refreshing about seeing a real world mix with a fantasy world.
I'm looking forward to the season finale.
