I’ve been paying attention to all things vampires since I decided to base my English 330 course on the subject. So, I was pleased to hear that HBO has a brand new series–called True Blood–based on the novels of Charlaine Harris (and by the creators of Six Feet Under if you’re a fan). HBO has created a cool support site for the series where you can view the trailer and read an online comic version of Trueblood. I personally think that Joss Whedon’s Buffy series put the–cough–final nail in the coffin when it comes to vampires on the tube, but I may be wrong. It does look like the new series will be a bit more adult than Buffy–and maybe not as much fun.

So, anyone have HBO and want to record the premier tonight? Did I mention extra credit?
