Coming out of the coffin

Fans of Deadwood and, to a lesser degree, Rome, having wandered far in the deserts of HBO, may now at long last hold out some small hope for True Blood, which looks to me to be their rejoinder to Blood Ties (no matter what reading the book purely by chance and could not put it down as HBO tanks and, oh, look, Lifetime is doing well with this Tanya Huff property Alan Ball says). Anna Paquin is set to play Sookie Stackhouse, sure to irritate fans of Charlaine Harris' novels, but I think an excellent choice.

The series follows Sookie Stackhouse, a barmaid living in Louisianna who can read people's minds, and how her life is turned upside down when the Vampire Bill, walks into her place of employment two years after vampires 'came out of the coffin' on national television.

More developing news may be found at the True Blood LiveJournal community, itself a clue to the women-with-cats fanbase of the series. Here's to hoping Anna Paquin's tits* will bring in the X-Men side of fandom. Also set to feature? Utilikilts. I gather these give utilikiltarians a sense of "freedom".

* I struggled with this expression, but not for very long. On a related note: Is Snape good or bad... What? More in this vein tomorrow, I'm afraid.

You do know that I got a leather kilt? Those leather utlikilts are neat.
