    If it's red you should go see a doctor.

    Ive seen parts of it and just hated the damn thing.

    I'm sorry, but I cannot stand this recent vampire craze that Twilight kick started. When you want to make Vampires into monstrous, horrific creatures again, we'll talk. Until then, no thank you.

    Twilight Kick started..... Im sorry but you are so wrong its funny, True Blood has nothing to do with twilight, and previous and still continuing vampire movies like dracula have nothing to do with the sparkling vampires of twilight

    True Blood is what Twilight should be. And a lot of the vampires in True Blood ARE as you say "monstrous, horrific creatures". There are good guys and bad guys, just like normal people. Makes more sense to me that way, actually.

    PLus on further note from ^

    You need to watch more than a couple episodes to be sucked into the actualy story of the show.

    The books may have existed well before Twilight, but the show would not have existed if Twilight hadn't hit the mainstream and made vampire romance "hip" and "sexy". So yeah, they are related.

    As for "continuing movies like Dracula"... when did the last serious horror movie (mainstream, theatrically released film) featuring him as the villain come out? Face it, in the eyes of the public, the sparkling Twilight vampires and the creatures Stoker invented (or at least, popularized) are one and the same. (Hell, the upcoming Fright Night remake is the first film in a long while to have traditional vampires as the villains, and it's a horror comedy.)

    As for the good people and bad people thing, yeah, that can work, if handled well. However, the dynamic in the show seemed to be between "WANGST" and "CHAOTIC STUPID EVIL" than anything believable.

    So yeah, I just find the whole supernatural romance genre to be pretty insipid. I tried to be fair to the show, but it just wasn't working for me. For starters, from what I've gathered, the show tries to use vampires as a metaphor for gay people ("God Hates Fangs!" - Seriously, who wrote this?), which has some... unfortunate implications, to say the least. Plus, the X-Men comics have been using this angle for how many years now? Plus, any attempt at seriousness goes out the window with the addition of a werepanther. Werepanthers.

    Just... no.
