I just discovered True Blood and it has quickly moved into my top ten. I love the show! I'm not so hot about the Sookie Stackhouse books though...

True Blood rules! I thought the second season was even better than the first. My only regret - that they are making us wait until summer for more.

Alas, I am a Netflix viewer, so I haven't even seen the second season yet. I did read the books though!
