    Everyone knows that True Blood’s really about shagging, not vampires. :-D

    Never seen it before though seeing as its about vampires and i think came out at round the same time as Twilight i doubt i’ll like it.

    True Blood’s pretty much one of the best shows on telly at the minute. Vampires – check. Nudity – check. Shagging – check. Comedy rednecks – check. Awesome theme tune – check. Rogue from the X-Men movies getting her tits out – check.

    If you haven’t seen it, make the effort. It’s excellent!

    Maybe it’s because I’m not American, but the accents just killed it for me, and I like vampires and boobs and sex and stuff.

    I would suggest subtitles but they might get in the way of the nipples.

    You can get it on iTunes, iirc. And you can stream the latest episodes for free from FXUK’s web site.

    The thing about True Blood is that it’s based off of a popular, and well written series of novels. Not that that necessarily ensures it’s good, but the series was also created by Alan Ball (also executive producer), creator of HBO’s other flagship show, Six Feet Under, which, imho, is the single finest piece of television (maybe film altogether) I’ve had the pleasure of watching.

    I hope that if they do make a game, Alan Ball has a crap load of say on it’s direction. Oh, that and they don’t use EA or Activision.

    Thanks for that bit of info rrod360lol, looking forward to watching it. Even though I aint seen the series I hope the game turns out fine as I’m itching to play a good vamp game again since Bloodlines. Why o why can’t there be more vamp games? *cries*

    2000-2010 is the decade history will remember as the years humanity were socially accepted to shag vampires.

    When did we decide drinking blood is sexy?

    we’re not happy with drinking sexual discharges and lapping sweat off eachother?

    2 girls 1 cup not enough?

    not that i’m complaining :D
