Default True Blood

A reoccurring girlfriend (who got me into Game of Thrones) and a former coworker I'm interested in are both into True Blood. Is it worth binging on or should I start questioning my tastes in women?

Game of thrones is awesome..

I am.. hit of miss on true blood. I wish bill and sookie would just drop dead and leave the rest of the show to continue. I dislike both characters quite a bit.

Pretty much the only tv I watch is HBO/Showtime. I have binged almost every show on there, but True blood has been the one I have been most "meh" about.. It has some amazingly hot sex scenes (seriously it could be softcore porn sometimes), It has some interesting twists and plots.. It has always had a tonne of potential... untill bill or sookie talk... he's beyond annoying and shes dumb as shit and whiney *groan*...

Everyone I know is into it, so never question your interest in someone due to the shows they watch ..

We've watched quite a bit of "True Blood" - I really like some parts and am "meh" on others (The werewolf guy is just SO HOT though...whew!)

There is one scene where I just totally want to take Sookie aside - explain poly to her and say - "There's no reason you can't be with BOTH you idiot!"

Just bought the first two seasons. Time to give it a go I guess.

Haha, I wish someone would've told her!

I don't really like Sookie or Bill either, but I love all the other characters. Luckily, the focus isn't on them as much as the story evolves. I see some of you aren't up to date on the serie, so I'll try not to spoil anything... But I was crazy about Eric until Ben came in the picture... OMG! *drools*

I'm almost caught up (S6-ep6). As a straight guy, I'm pretty confident that I'm not their target demographic. It's had a few good moments and some decent characters, but I've also found myself laughing in the wrong places more than a few times. It's well-acted camp with an HBO budget. I think the most important thing I've gotten out of it is that it gives me something to point to when a women gives me a hard time for liking pro wrestling.
