Description
Created by SIX FEET UNDER's Alan Ball, TRUE BLOOD is like a sexier, bloodier older sister to the relatively well-behaved TWILIGHT. This HBO drama is based on the Southern Vampire Mysteries novels by Charlaine Harris, a series set in a world where vampires have just begun to 'come out' after a synthetic blood substitute called True Blood is introduced. Oscar winner Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress living in Bon Temps, Louisiana, who falls hard for Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a Civil War veteran and vampire. But their romantic romps aren't the only draw for the series: the existence between humans and vampires is an uneasy one, and people are dying.
Clothes fall to the floor almost as often as blood spatters the walls in this show that blends supernatural horror, sex, and mystery, with just a little bit of social commentary thrown in for good measure. Executive producer Ball and his writers have shaped a variety of fascinating characters in addition to Sookie and Bill, including Sookie's mysterious boss, Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell); her best friend, Tara (Rutina Wesley); her womanising brother, Jason (Ryan Kwanten); and her sweet grandmother, Adele (Lois Smith). This collection presents the show's complete first series.

true blood box set

Created: 07/08/10
Bloody, sexy and violent, the show is also both occasionally funny and frightening
Chicago Sun-Times (09/16/2009)

More drama and offbeat humor than horror and scares... A welcome and unique twist on the tired vampire mythos
Fangoria (09/16/2009)

Graphically sexy and scary, and often wildly funny... a broadly entertaining, deliciously twisted slice of modern Southern Gothic
TV Guide (09/16/2009)

Wildly imaginative... with one of the best ensembles of the new series
USA Today (09/16/2009)

Audacious, outrageous and playfully grisly
Washington Post (09/16/2009)

Twilight but awesome!

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 17/08/11
I brought this DVD after watching all seasons so far, its one of those box sets that you can watch again and again. I first discovered true blood just after the first season came out and at first found it hard to get in to but after the first three episodes I was amazed by the story line and from then I have been hooked!
A lot of people have compared true blood to the movie twilight but lets be honest there is a lot more gore sex and violence making it the adult version of vampire films and TV shows. I would recommend true blood to anyone who has watched tv shows such as supernatural etc and for those who simply love vampires in there true glory :)
Sit back and enjoy you wont be disappointed

It's sexy, scary, exciting and violent!

Created: 17/05/10
This really is only a show for adults, there is frequent graphic scenes of sex, nudity and violence. I must admit that at times it is over the top and almost embarrassing. That is why it is a good and not an excellent show.

But, in and amongst the gore there is a new approach to vampires films/series, there is humour and excitement whilst still scary and serious.

One more thing, it takes a while to get into, the first 3 or 4 episodes are very much setting the scene and introudcing this new view on the supernatural.

If you like supernatural, you will like this, but beware it takes some time to get into and is an acquired taste.

HBO's Version of Charlaine Harris' novels. TRUE BLOOD

Created: 29/09/09
I have the Sookie Stackhouse books by charlaine Harris, but had seen a glimpse of HBO's True Blood whilst on vacation in the states. It immediately enthralled me. I bought the box set, and have seen some of the episodes. I am certainly not disappointed. the series is incredibly quirky, full of twists and turns as the series continues. You find yourself making conclusions with small insights and clues of information, only to find out that your original observations were actually competely wrong. Its a laugh out loud series designed to keep you guessing and following it along. I enjoy this series and hope to continue to love it through the books.

True Blood Season !

Created: 22/04/10
If you want a grown up version of the Twilight Saga this is definatly for you
The Vampires have risen and are living among us.
With graphic scenes, the usual love stories with great twists each and every turn.
Endearing main characters, you have to watch this.
Myths and monsters, changelings, shapeshifters and so much more........every episode is better than the last
Theme music is compelling and actually good...storylines are fab and quite close to the books ( Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries)
Every episode has a new twist that you were not expecting...
This will run and run, so buy yours now or watch it on FX
