Speaking of the current Vampire frenzy keeping Moonlight in the minds of entertainment reporters, bloggers and critics........ Jane Boursaw, from TV Squad, mentions our show in her post about the new True Blood tv show poster issued by HBO.
"Thou shall not crave thy neighbor"
HBO releases True Blood poster (time to stock up on strawberry jam)
by Jane Boursaw
Ewww! This poster is so creepy, it makes me want to hurl! And watch this show! Of course, the fact that Alan Ball is behind it -- the man who helmed one of my favorite shows ever, Six Feet Under -- has nothing to do with it. Nope, it doesn't. Okay, I'm lying. It has everything to do with it.
HBO's True Blood, starring Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, is set to premiere on Sept. 7 at 9 p.m. Here's the newly released poster for it. Makes you want to dig into a jar of strawberry jam, doesn't it?
Based on Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire novel series, the show follows the world of vampires set in small-town Louisiana. They're able to co-exist with humans by drinking a Japanese-manufactured synthetic blood. (Well, what fun is that?!)
We'll learn more about the show later this week at Comic-Con 2008, where a panel is scheduled. Also, check out the official web site.
And what is up with all the vampires lately? We've still got loyal fans mourning the loss of Moonlight, and on the big screen, vampire devotees everywhere await the release of Twilight, based on the books by Stephenie Meyer, on Dec. 12, 2008.
Are vampires the new wizards? Or are we just a blood-crazed society at the moment?
