Yep! I swore that I would not watch another new series after the cancellation of Moonlight but there is no way I'm passing on this one. Even if it strays from the books, I hope it's a good one.

Awesome! I just started book 1 of this series today, but have heard nothing but good things about them. I'll have to talk my husband into getting HBO now!

I seen the pre-air episode and it was really good/funny. It has some frames missing, but overall I know I 'll be watching.

I'm not sure if I like it yet. Maybe I will watch it again.

Yay! I've been waiting for this for a long time.  The ads are really fun too.

We actually just added HBO about a month ago. My husband just had to see a boxing match... I was excited when I saw this series was starting here, hopefully it does the books justice. It  was only $7 extra a month in my area to add the HBO.

Wow, just realized that DirectTV is having an HBO preview this weekend, so that works for me.  Otherwise, I will have to see if I can beg somebody to tape it for me, or see if I can sweet talk DH into calling up the company and seeing if we can get it for cheaper.  $12 a month is expensive to watch one show.

I watched the first episode last night (it was at blockbuster!), it was okay I suppose.  It did have it's boring moments, but you can't expect it to be an excellent action packed first episode.  I'm sure it will get better, it does show promise.

I'm with you Dawn. I'll have to wait until they release the series on dvd. Unless I can beg my sister to record them for me. Can't wait to see it though.

I just called my cable company and ordered HBO! I can't wait. It would cost more to get it from itunes. My blockbuster will not release the first episode. They have it and won't put it out! :(

It looks fun. About a month ago they were pushing it hard but in a slick way-all over times square there are TRU BLOOD drink ads and they look just like any drink ads until you read the fine print. They also did the two opposing groups; Fellowship of the Sun and the Vampires Justice League. They even gave out buttons and made you sign petitions. It was awesome. I think HBO is being very clever with the advertising, immersing it in everyday culture just like in the books.

I will be DVRing it! woo hoo! :-D LOL maybe I should try recording it and passing it along.

I think sookies friend was recast. I saw a pre - air episode one and then a cast list with pictures. I don't think its the same person.

Okay, I might just be the only person who hasn't read the books yet (or so it seems anyway). I just finished collecting the set, up to Dead to Worse anyway, so I'm thinking I should read them before I watch the series?

I made DH do that with the Dresden Files, I had read that the series was significantly different to the books, so he read them first (turned out it was a good idea), so I can hardly be a hypocrite now?! I'm only going to get to see the first episode anyway (courtesy of DirecTV's free HBO weekend), so that decision's pretty much been made for me ....
