True Blood: The Complete First Season (Widescreen) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vampires have come out of the coffin and are now living among us. Surviving on synthetic blood, they no longer need human blood to survive. Or so it seems... The small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana boasts a wide array of colorful locals. Meet Sookie Stackhouse (Paquin), a sweet and innocent waitress who hides her powerful ability to read minds; Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who's just moved back to town; Sookie's brother Jason, a ladies' man who can't seem to stay out of trouble; tough-as-nails Tara, Sookie's loyal best friend; Sam, the owner of Merlotte's who tries to keep his feelings for Sookie to himself; Lafayette, a man about town who's always cooking up something illicit and off the menu and a quirky cast of characters who each hide their dark secrets in the shadows of night .

Review:

"What makes True Blood smarter than pure soap opera is the parallels it draws between its monster mash and actual, familiar societal problems....Even its gore reflects a mix of serious and silly." Trinie Dalton

Review:

"...[A] broadly entertaining, deliciously twisted slice of modern Southern Gothic." TV Guide

Review:

"Part mystery, part fantasy, part comedy, and all wildly imaginative exaggeration, Blood proves that there's still vibrant life — or death — left in the "star-crossed lovers" paradigm." USA Today
