Got Something to Add?


I need someone to explain the show to me.  I hadn't had hbo until this year, so I hadn't ever seen the show before.  I tried to watch it, but the acting seemed really bad and the accents, omg the bad southern accents.  Are they going for camp?  Is it supposed to be funny?  Would I get it if I'd seen previous seasons or is it just not my thing?

@Joystickenvy Honestly, it probably wasn't meant to be a comedy but it's so ridiculous and campy that it kind of feels that way sometimes. It's very bloody. It's like a more mature take on vampires that don't sparkle. If you don't take it too seriously you should enjoy it.

 @Noelle  @Joystickenvy I'll have to give it a shot I reckon.  I laughed a lot during the episode I partially watched, but I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be funny or not :>  I wish I still smoked pot.  I think that would help a lot.

 @Joystickenvy It is campy.  The lore and characters are fascinating and fun to me. I watched all 4 seasons back to back within a week and got hooked on it.

 @Joystickenvy Hopefully Noelle will give you a primer. True Blood is all about the hotness.
