To be fair, though, I’ve neither seen an episode of this show before, nor have I ever read any of the books. Lame, I know. I told you guys last week, though, that I often get “into” things years after their novelty has worn off, and it’s usually because I’m almost completely oblivious to everything around me aside from the things that I intentionally zero in on.
Here’s a few observations, though, that I made while watching the trailer (i.e., the most True Blood I’ve ever experienced in my lifetime): Stephen Moyer is a total cheeseball. Him? I just don’t get. Anna Paquin is still the cutest, and I don’t care what anyone says. Halfway through the trailer, it was like Twilight meets Star Trek. Is that about right? Because if it is, no thanks. Last. I really, really don’t get the Alexander Skarsgard obsession that so many people are enveloped in. Like, a bit. He’s honestly kind of creepy and weird, and not even in that alluring-mythical-creature kind of way, either.
I guess what I’m saying is that I get HBO, and there aren’t a whole lot of summer programs on that I’m all that interested in. Should I give this business a chance, or is it way, beyond me?
