True Blood, the show that has millions tuning in to HBO since 2008, is set in Bon Temps, Louisiana where Sookie Stackhouse meets and falls for vampire Bill Compton. However, in this universe, vampires are “out of the coffin” and actively participating in “mainstreaming” efforts. That is, vampires wish to live amongst the humans, complete with the right to marry, the right to vote and other such sociopolitical benefits. Sookie’s relationship with Bill is met with opposition at many ends, and the show picks up gear and doesn’t stop all throughout the season.
