True Blood: Season 1 (Disc 1 of 5) (2008)
This quirky TV series based on the novels by Charlaine Harris stars Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress who lives in a small, Louisiana town that just happens to be cohabitated by both humans and vampires. After a Japanese company successfully comes up with a synthetic blood for vampires to live on, it becomes possible for humans to share the world with the bloodsuckers. Even still, it's no easy thing when Sookie finds herself harboring feelings for one charming undead fellow named Bill, played by Stephen Moyer. ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide

Startlingly good by emdoub November 22, 2009 - 8:48 AM PST

Those clever Nipponese have developed synthetic blood, so vampires have come out of the coffin and are trying to get full citizenship rights. Reactions range from horror to fascination in the human population. In a small town in Louisiana, a vampire has just moved back into town, after being away for 140+ years, and the residents show this range of reactions.

Anna Paquin plays Sookie Stackhouse, local waitress and poorly-concealed telepath, who is odd enough to be an outsider, and is fascinated by the other outsider, the new vampire. Her best friend, Tara, distrusts the vampire, and carries a torch for Sookie's brother, whose exploits among the local ladies are amusing (or horribly familiar, depending on your personal history), and has his own reasons for disliking vampires in general. Sookie's boss carries a torch for Sookie, but she shies away from a romance with the boss. Other characters add to this mishmash of relationships, reminding me of every small town I've ever known.

Realistic characters, interesting situations, and believable dialogue make this well worth watching. The amount of sex and skin (almost to soft-porn levels) may be too much for some viewers or just a bonus, depending.
