True blaaahhhd.

I haven't been keeping up with True Blood.

I don't have HBO so that might be a good reason. ha!

I did borrow the first season from the library (last summer, nonetheless) and watched it. In French with English subtitles.

I don't know why. It just seemed more romantic that way. If True Blood can be described as romantic.

Although after watching an episode or two I would emerge into the real world expecting to hear people around me speaking French (with a thought bubble translation - ha!). That's what happens when I watch a foreign film - I expect everyone to be speaking that language, it takes like a minute for my brain to readjust. Does that happen to you?

Anyway....while I did get caught up in it, I never did watch the subsequent seasons. I had HBO free for the last 4 days and recorded all the episodes hoping I could watch and maybe get caught up.

Uhhh...no.  I have no idea what is going on. I thought Sookie loved Bill, now she's kissing some other dude. Someone tried to burn her house down. And does she have some new powers? Not to mention all the other weird stuff that's been happening around Bon Temps. I guess before I start watching newer episodes I gotta go back and pick up season 2. I think that's a great idea.

I did fall in like with this song. It's kinda sexy/creepy. It's a gotta bluesy/country vibe. I just really like it.

I love true blood. And the story is predictable with some twists. I read the books before the show came out. And the song is awesome isn't it? And as for foreign movies. When I'm depressed or have problems I like to watch them with the subtitles off. You really have to really pay attention to what you see in order to have a clue as to what's going on. It's really a great way to distract yourself from your problems. I know it's weird, but it works.

My daughter's a huge True Blood fan and I'm always getting nagged for not watching it! My arm may twist!
