But in all seriousness, we're loving Bon Temps and it's wacky characters and vampires. I started reading the books too (I call them the 'Sookie Bookies') and the series seems a very accurate adaptation so far—except that you only get that first person perspective and not such an insight into the other characters away from Sookie's perception. The other drawback there is from watching the show and then reading the book is that you end up reading in accent, which is a weird thing when you are not doing it aloud—it's not often that your brain speaks in a different voice. It's a little bit disconcerting—like that time my brain spoke German. I haven't been so excited about a show since Buffy. And Dexter. And American Horror Story. The boy has purchased many series' on blue ray so we're just working our way through. Do you all love it too? Or is it so last season?
And then there is The Blacklist. I'm of mixed opinion at the moment. As I explained here, my silly work schedule is mucking up my serious watching schedule and so I have only seen an episode or two of the show. At first it looked intriguing, but now I am a little unsure. There are some continuity issues I am having trouble with. Why do they keep putting him in that sliding room, chained to a seat (surely a non-humane or even non-legal way of keeping someone incarcerated, but that is a whole different kettle of fish) because he is so über dangerous, but as soon as he delivers a mysterious morsel of information about a person on the Blacklist, they let him wander around the control room and parts of the country with no restrictions. It also seems a little over-acted at times. I am going to get the series anyway and give it more of a go, but I do hope the stories start to entertain more than the unbelievables annoy.
Are you watching anything exciting?
