SKU ID #100574
$39.98
Vampires have come out of the coffin and are now living among us. Surviving on synthetic blood, they no longer need human blood to survive. Or so it seems... The small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana boasts a wide array of colorful locals. Meet Sookie Stackhouse (Academy Award winner Anna Paquin), a sweet and innocent waitress who hides her powerful ability to read minds; Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who's just moved back to town; Sookie's brother Jason, a ladies' man who can't seem to stay out of trouble; tough-as-nails Tara, Sookie's loyal best friend; Sam, the owner of Merlotte's who tries to keep his feelings for Sookie to himself; Lafayette, a man about town who's always cooking up something illicit and off the menu and a quirky cast of characters who each hide their dark secrets in the shadows of night in the series that's like no other.

                    Great story lines, wonderful chemistry between lead characters. Enjoyed the Directors' comments.......added a better understanding of why certain scenes were played the way they were played.

                    Gave a set to a friend; she, too, has become addicted to the story and characters.

                      Watch this show, it's by far the greatest TV show around. I'm not the kind of person that gets into TV shows and when introduced to True Blood, I was drawn. Great Show!

                        I bought the blu-ray version of this season before I had even seen any of the shows because unfortunately I do not have HBO at the moment. I found that I watched the entire season within two days of buying it because it grabs you in and you just cannot stop watching. Also the show is very original and isn't like all the other vampire movies/books that are out right now, which helped it be not boring because it brings something new to the table. All in all, I absolutely loved season one and will definitely be buying the second season when it comes out. I just cannot think of one bad thing about the season and would recommend it to anyone.

                          I gained interest in the series when the previews for the first season started reeling. I was completely hooked from the 1st episode of Season 1! I could not wait for the 1st Season DVD to come out! I thoroughly enjoyed sitting back and recapping the season. >>>>>> To those that say its not what its cracked up to be....lol...Its just the Season DVD...It does not promise alot of extras or anything...Its just Season 1 DVD. Its enough by itself! It goes from the first episode to the last episode of the season. I was under the impression that is what they all do! lol....

                              True Blood is an engaging show with an interesting plot and marvelous execution! The DVD, despite the fact that it only contains 12 episode which is typical of all HBO shows, is really good, and I highly recommend it.

                                    I'm a grandmother from the sixties who started watching this collection at my son's house. I absolutely could not turn it off! I was totally captivated and watched nearly the entire season in one weekend! It was filled with intrigue, is psychologically thrilling and a deeply moving love story. I cannot recommend it highly enough for adult viewers!

                                      If you have read the books and love them for what they are, this will dissappoint you, not only do they add distasteful scenes which i dealt with until i realized they compleley changed the scenes in book. I dealt with added scenes which were not all bad to get to first love scene a favorite for me well does not exist completely changed it EVERYTHING CHANGED
                                      At this point i am trying really hard to not let it ruin books for me. My advice is stick to the books or if you do not read then watch the show but do not do both.
