Bitten by HBO (again)
Well, I am hooked on the new series by Alan Ball ("American Beauty" & "Six Feet Under") called "True Blood". Ostensibly about vampires in Louisiana, it's really a Southern Gothic tale projected superbly on the face of lead star Anna Paquin. It's also a thinly-veiled treatise on civil rights for minority groups. A sharp cast and excellent writing and the one-of-a-kind setting that is the deep South make for a potent mix of blood, sex, and truths in the darkness.
