We are fascinated by Alan Ball's new show Trueblood
It was sad when all of the best HBO shows went off the air or are now sanitized for regular TV. But here is one the Snarkies can fall in love with. It's a soap opera type show about Vampires. After watching 7 seasons of Oz a little vampire blood isn't going to scare the Snarkies!

Now we have already had soap operas about:

Gangsters (The Sopranos)
Funeral Homes (Six Feet Under)
Prison (Oz) Roxie and Barbral oved this creepy show!
Wild West (Deadwood)
Carnies (Carnivale) We loved this although it was almost unbearably creepy
Polygamy (Big Love) we hated this one, not one snarky woman on this one
Ancient soap opera (Rome)

5 Kisses to TRUEBLOOD the vampire soap opera!

From HBO

Thanks to a Japanese scientist's invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures "coming out of the coffin." Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the jury is still out.

Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), however, knows how it feels to be an outcast. "Cursed" with the ability to listen in on people's thoughts, she's also open-minded about the integration of vampires — particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year-old living up the road. But as Sookie is drawn into a series of mysteries surrounding Bill's arrival in Bon Temps, that tolerance will be put to the test.

A sexy, scary new drama from 'Six Feet Under' creator Alan Ball, 'True Blood' delves into the meticulously-crafted world of novelist Charlaine Harris. Described by the Emmy®-winning Ball as "popcorn for smart people" and featuring a colorful cast of local misfits, 'True Blood' promises an intense ride.
