    Bearcata - I don't know if it will be available for download but if I see or hear anything I will PM you.

    Does any one know what happened to Blood Ties? Is the series over?
    Well, here is an article explaining the Blood Ties status, it hasn't exactly been cancelled as the sets have not been destroyed but they need financial backing. Blood Ties: Will It Return for Season Three Or Has It Been Cancelled? | TV Series Finale

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    I just watched the 20 min highlight on HBO entitled: "True Blood: Alan Ball POV" (DVR recorded this morning at 3:00AM) and I really think the show will be good! He took a lot of time to get the casting right, and from what I saw - everyone fits their characters better then the new Twilight movie does (IMO). At first I thought Bill Compton was not my concept of Bill, (my Bill was more handsome but after watching this, I think he is a good fit. I like Eric (owner of Fangtasia and head honcho vamp for the district). My favorite guy is handsome Sam Merlotte (owner of Merlote's where Sookie works), but Sookie's brother Jason is also a right on hottie (as he should be!). I couldn't have imagined a more perfect Sam and am very pleased with the quality Alan has committed too. The characters will not just be supernatural as in "magic" but will be very believable and natural as Alan points out.

    I look forward to watching True Blood-lines: Vampire legends and True Blood-lines: A New Type, which will be both be airing on Saturday. (and of course the season premiere on Sunday!)

    I can't wait to watch this tonight! I have been looking forward to this. I have read the whole Twilight series and I am eagerly awaiting Nov when it comes out. I hope I am not dissappointed, because I am not sure if I like the cast. I hope it works out though.

    I have not read any of the books that this show is based on, but I will once I begin watching the series.

    I have been waiting for a show like this!

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    It is a fun series and while I prefer Stephenie's style of writing to Charlaine Harris; I love the plots and storylines in the Sookie Stackhouse series and was disappointed when I finished reading the 8 books currently available in the series. I think she has a few more books planned but the 8th book resolves several ongoing storylines that needed the resolution.

    I am excited and looking forward to this series a lot. From what I have seen so far, I like the cast selection. (Much more then the cast selection for Twilight - still hesitant on whether that movie will be to my liking). Less then 1 hour to go

    I'm watching the dull as dishwater vampire 101 thing before True Blood. Don't waste your time with it unless you are really really bored. I'm going to give the series a shot, but if it does not capture a similar sense of humor that the books have, I'm out.

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    Sometimes when a book makes it's way to the screen it looses it's luster or fails to deliver - this is NOT the case with True Blood (IMO)! I don't know if it is because I knew what to expect, but I could easily just sit back and watch them entertain me. I loved the first showing, and look forward to each Sunday night now. I love the cast and can only say - what a great job they did with casting!!!

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    I liked those vampire specials before the show started I'm a history/literature geek, so of course i dug it.

    I LOVED the show! I thought the cast was strong and the chemistry was great between the two leads. I'm not sure about the character of Tara. She seems almost too confrontational all the time. That's going to get old after a while.

    All in all, a big thumbs up. I'm so happy Alan Ball is back making great TV!

    Re: True Blood (HBO)

    Ironically, Tara in the books is not as confrontational, much more mild, sort of in Sookie's shadow. She has a more subdued nature to what is portrayed and I am not sure how she will fit in context to the other books but I did enjoy seeing a different perspective to the character (although she does seem a little over the top). If they tone her down a little I would be fine. Was surprised to see such a fortright tough Tara. Makes me wonder about the future books but since Charlaine was prominent in the preshow interviews, I assume Tara's reworked image will be Ok.
