no, f'real, that is my name. ...anyway, i just watched the first 3 eps of TrueBlood, and i liked it. i'm not as passionate about it as i am my fav show, FX' Nip/Tuck, but i've been a fan of Lois Smith's since Five Easy Pieces. Stephen Moyer [Bill] is absolutely smoldering, and i like Rutina Wesley [Tara] and Nelsan Ellis [Lafayette]. Of course i liked Anna Paquin too. i'm happy the show got picked up so quickly for a second season. Nothing better happen to that dog ;-)
