Blood sucks

By JAMES PARKER  |  September 2, 2008

None of this is terrible, some of it is quite pleasantly daft, and once the series settles down, it may even become compelling. Ball’s usual attention to detail is in evidence (Sookie’s best friend, Tara, bored at work, is sitting there reading Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine), and the fight scenes are pretty damn good. The Southern milieu is done with a sweaty hand, but then, the South itself is done with a sweaty hand. What’s my problem? Call me a species-ist. I just don’t dig vampires.
