Everybody knows that the ladies love the vampires, but when you take a bunch of fanged wonders and throw sex, blood and rock ‘n' roll into the mix, it's funny how the demographic suddenly jumps to include both genders. "True Blood," based on the "The Southern Vampire Mysteries" series of novels by Charlaine Harris, debuted on HBO in 2008, offering a gorgeous female lead (Anna Paquin), a decidedly masculine vampire for her to play against (Stephen Moyer), and lots of…say, what are the kids calling it these days? Oh, that's right: fang-banging.
When Season 2 of the series wrapped up in September of 2009, it arguably was with more of a whisper than a scream, owing to the weariness many viewers felt in regards to the seemingly never-ending storyline of Miss Maryann Forester (Michele Forbes), but between the knowledge that she was gone for good and the number of teases offered in the second half of the season finale, we were excited at the prospect of what Season 3 might hold.

On working with Chris Bauer on "True Blood": I’m given a lot of leeway in terms of things that I can do with this character, and Chris is smart enough to go with some of the things that I throw at him, and we’ve had some sort of beautiful accidents.

Sookie has a thing for vampires, so unless you're one of the walking undead, it's going to be tough to convince her that you're her soul mate. Considering everyone around her seems to end up dead, maybe that isn't such a bad thing....
HBO's "" started out as a great show, as the vampire stories and cable TV sex scenes made it one of the hottest shows on television. But the show has slipped over the years, even if it still commands a decent audience. HBO has announced that next year's seventh season will be its last, and frankly the show lost it long ago. It used to be a regular on but this year was left off again.
TV critic Laura DeMarco explains how the show has .
We love Anna Camp and were thrilled to see her character come back, but she's just not enough to carry the show.
Molly Lambert also chimed in about how . She appreciated the eye candy and all the sex scenes but the idiotic stories got to her.
So we'll see what happens in the final season. We know there will be plenty of sensual sex scenes to keep many viewers interested, but we can't expect much more than that.
