So, we're 4 or 5 episodes into True Blood on this side of the pond, and I've got to say so far I'm very impressed. Any body else watching it?

Ya my wife got me hooked on the show. Now I own the DVD set of the first season and I'm waiting for the second season to come out so I can get it. You'll like it the whole season is really cool.

Good to hear. Sometimes the end of a series lets down what was an otherwise good show.

Also enjoying it for the most part but i do have a problem of how easy going the "close knit" town is about three murders in the first few episodes.

Well all the women killed where known to be hanging out with vampires which the town isn't happy to have. So the women are just casulties from hanging around vampires so I think the general thinking is that as long as you are not a "fang banger" or hang out with vampires than you don't have to worry about being targeted for murder. It might be different if a person was the one commiting the murders.

I love the show. Just so cool. And despite Lafiette being atrociously, flaming gay (I have a problem with this, I will admit. Not being gay itself but trying to act like the opposite gender) I think he is by far the best character. He throws such a different vibe into an otherwise fairly serious and gloomy show.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

sorry but if the writers expect me to swallow that its ok for "fang bangers" to be murdered and that the town couldn't care less , they didn't do research on how a murder effects a community let alone three.

I agree the town people are a little relaxed about all the murders that do go on through the show. Only a few of the characters show any signs of the stress from the murders in their community but most just act like it is no big deal even as more murders are committed in the town people just go on with their lives.

i haven't watched season two yet so hopefully they will fix it but doubtful.

They also don't seem too bothered by Sookie's ability to read minds. Enough of them know about it for it not to be a huge secret. However, this is a fantasy world where vampires live among us, people can read minds, and bar owners seem to have very strange links to stray dogs, so lets keep the whole suspension of disbelief going. If you can believe all that, you can believe that the town aren't too bothered by a few murders.

For those of you who haven't seen the new season yet, you ain't seen nothing yet
