True Blood

Media: True Blood

This HBO drama series is one of my favorites.  Set in Bon Temp Louisiana, this fictional town comes to life through the realistic portrayal of humans and vampires coexisting.  Sookie Stackhouse (Anny Paquin) works as a waitress at Merlotte’s, Bon Temps’s local bar and falls in love with Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a 173-year-old vampire that happens to be her neighbor.  The inherent differences that exist between them constantly put their love to the test.  The acting, set, and production of True Blood makes this fantasy world of supernatural beings an enjoyable show to watch.

My Likes:

Sookie looks super cute in her Merlotte’s uniform.  I found that HBO sells her adorable outfit online - now you can dress like Sookie and the other waitresses!
