Is anyone else getting excited about this new show on HBO?

True Blood is a new show that is suppose to premiere sometime in Jan. on HBO.  The show is based on Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books.

I hear that they have filmed 3-4 episodes but have halted production temporarily due to the writers strike but are still planning on the Jan. premiere.

I can't wait to see it!

I'm tooooo excited about this!!!!  I'm really hoping that they will put it on HBO on demand as well!  And on some shows they even put the pilot on Demand a few days before it airs on regualr TV!  Hopefully it won't be on the same time that I have 2 other shows on because my DVR will only record 2 shows at once :-(

Is the show following the books exactly? I've only read book 1 but I have 2 on the way.

From what I've read about the show it isn't exactly following the books.  The characters are the same but with different story and plot lines which I think is great...you get the books and the shows!

I have to second what someone else said, I ADDED HBO *solely* to see this series.

Ditto! I can't wait and I'm adding HBO only for this. I think Charlaine Harris' new series starting with "Grave Sight" is also superb. If you haven't read them (3 in series now), I highly recommend them. Each of her series seems to get better and better.

Definitely - I was wondering when that was going to happen...no spoilers here :-) ...worth waiting for. I read Ice Cold Grave, and then reread it immediately!

Have read that it is being rumored to air in March.  Not sure I like Anna Paquin as Sookie.

I'm not sure if I like Anna as Sookie either.  But I honestly can't think of any actress that meets my image of her, and Anna is an excellent actress!

IMO, Anna Paquin is borderline cute and Sookie in my mind is someone MUCH MUCH more prettier than Anna. I've only finished book 3 Club Dead but the way all these hunky vamps and Weres are fawning over Sookie, I just can't see that happening with Anna.
