it doesn't get any better than this

Finally, finally, a vampire series that will knock you off the ground and make you bleed for more. I’m babbling hyperboles I know, but True Blood is just phenomenal.

Because it does not show popular girls in high heels and the vampires do not shine like diamonds, most average viewers may not totally get it at first watch. But wait until you get deeper into the series and discover how great an actress Anna Paquin is, how original the screenplay for television is, and how ruggedly dashing that vampire (played by British actor Stephen Moyer) really is, and then perhaps you might understand what I’m getting at.

There are raunchy sex scenes, funny one-liners, and original twists you won’t get with any other television show.

It’s dark, it’s chilling, it’s funny, romantic, and plain crazy all at the same time.  True Blood is not for the faint of heart.


Ditto, Mr. King, Stephenie Meyer Can’t Write February 4, 2009

bxp347741Stephenie Meyer will either shrug this off or bawl her eyes over for a fortnight, but Stephen King, the prolific science fiction writer, thinks Ms. Meyer can’t write. According to King, Meyer is a far cry from J.K. Rowling, saying that “Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”

I think what Mr. King is saying is this: Ms. Stephenie Meyer’s writing style is forgettable, stale, and often wearisome. You will treasure this book if : you are a teen, you like ALL love stories, or if you have read nothing else.

Oh, and the movie was worse. Not that I finished it.”
