One of my favorite HBO series now has to go to True Blood. I love the first season very much that I cannot miss the opening episode of Season 2 on Sunday. The EW reported that rating was sky-rocking.
According to HBO, the bloody good episode averaged 3.7 million viewers, making it the pay cable’s most watched original program since the series finale of The Sopranos two years ago. What’s more, the opener was up a staggering 157 percent over the season 1 premiere, and 51 percent over last November’s season finale.
If you dont’ know what True Blood is about. I will give you a short synopsis from True Blood Fansite.
Series Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, vampires have come out of the coffin. Thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood, vampires no longer need humans for their fix, and can walk freely, if not yet quite comfortably, among their living counterparts – though they can still come out only at night. Meanwhile, in the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps, Sookie Stackhouse works as a waitress at the down-home bar Merlotte’s. Though outwardly normal, she has unusual qualities of her own: Sookie can read people’s minds, which complicates her world in endless ways. But Sookie’s life gets a lot more interesting when Merlotte’s gets its first vampire patron – the 173-year-old Bill Compton – and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, this new HBO series is created and executive produced by Alan Ball, creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series “Six Feet Under.”
