True Blood

Extended True Blood title sequence.
Which is nice.
Shame about the show, though.

Update: Video deleted, another copy is here. The song is "Rad Times Express" by RTX.

Scene missing! A video that used to be embedded in this post has disappeared. If you know of a copy of this video that is still accessible, please mail me so that I can update the link.

    I follow you. And I recommend to you the new Swedish vampire flick Let The Right One In. Forgive my ignorance, whose music is featured in this?

      Seconded on the movie recommendation.

      I like True Blood, but I recognize that it's in a so-bad-it's-good kind of way. I'll watch pretty much anything vampy.

    so much potential, so much FAIL. How can you screw up *vampires*?

    i gotta give them props for the whole pentacostals=strippers bit tho. to put it in dogma terms, the holy spirit is just another way to get filled.

    Am I the only one who likes this show? I don't really understand why everyone hates it.

    And, I always skip past the title sequence.

      No, you are not alone. True Blood is awesome. The books are awesome. People who trash it should either produce something as good, or at least as successful, or should STFU...

        That's a pretty brutal standard to live by.

        Someone recently showed me a charming video called "Freaxxx" by a small musical collective who I believe call themselves Brokencyde. Now by some accounts this video might actually be violating the Geneva Convention... but I guess I can't say anything else since I'm not in possession of the requisite Range Rovers and bitchaz to construct my own video.

        Maybe we can all come together and hate Twilight instead. I mean it doesn't even have knockers, right?

      I've enjoyed the show a great deal. I think the trashiness is just the outermost layer. Like Joss Whedon's work, True Blood almost begs people to dismiss it as pulpy genre.

      I have no interest in vampires outside these two shows (although I did enjoy Let The Right One In) - they're just another vehicle for storytelling, as far as I'm concerned. I turned my nose up at Buffy for ages before I finally got into it. Back then, vampires were a little too cheesy and implausible to be frightening or interesting to me - I was much more of a sci-fi fan.

      I'm not sure where all the hating is coming from, either. Maybe it's an easy target?

    yeah if only they'd based it on a better trashy vampire novel. Though I guess with most of the rest its all really porn porn multiple orgy with vampire werewovles and fairies porn. So they also suck. Twilight which I liked clearly had the movie offer, which looks AWFUL.
