I haven't seen any episodes yet. I'm big on not getting any spoilers for the books, so should I read the entire series before watching the tv series? Or can I watch the first two seasons without spoiling anything in the first 4-5 books or so?

TIA!
Each season loosely (very loosely) follows the corresponding book. As in, season 1 of True Blood is based on Dead Until Dark, etc. I have read all the books and seen both seasons of True Blood and I am pretty sure that the show does not give away anything major from the books beyond the first two. There may be a few very slight hints but nothing so overt that it would be spoilery, IMO. I think if you've already read the first 2 books, you're good to go. Although, now that I'm thinking about it, the season finale of season 2
may merge into book 3 slightly. Hmm. Maybe make sure that you've read the 3rd book before you finish up season 2.
It's been a little while since I've read the first few books, so anyone else have an opinion?

Thanks! That helps a lot. I'm on the 4th book now, so it's probably fine. Off to go rent them...

Okay so I finally saw the entire season 1 and must admit I do like True Blood.....
Does anyone know if season 2 is available on DVDs yet?

I've just gotten into both the books and the series and love them both! I'm on episode 9 I think of season 1 and listening to (audiobook) of Definitely Dead. I am in Canada and don't have cable so I am waiting for season 2 to come out on dvd. Amazon says it's not out yet. Does anyone know when it will be?

I'm going to go back and read the whole thread now!

Oh yeah, and I am in love with Eric!

I've got season 2 in my netflix queue, and so far the release date isn't known. Waiting...

Oh, thank you for the happy update! Looks like I will need to start budgeting for HBO again starting this summer. I wonder how many subscribers they lost when it went off the air?

Alan Ball just likes to take his time when filming from what I've heard. And longer breaks between season is actually become more and more common.

Yay June 13th, and a little glimpse of Mr. Northman here.

We just started season 1 last night and I'm really liking it! Dh wasn't too excited about watching it, but he enjoyed it too. I'm also reading the books right now.

I have to know, does Bubba make an appearance on the show?
post #411 of 411
Oh, I don't know about Bubba--I'm intentionally not reading the books until the series is complete. Bubba isn't ringing a bell, and I've seen all the episodes so far.

OT: Attention Pam-fans! The actress who plays Pam appeared on this week's episode of Justified (I highly recommend checking it out on the FX channel) if anyone is interested in seeing her as a non-vampire. She's really good
