I agree that there is a lot of the Heroes vibe in Sookie. She's is very powerful in a way but mostly she's a mess.
As was the case with Ball's Six Feet Under, I am made so uncomfortable by the overtly homosexual scenes that I fast forward through them. Lafayette's scene with the light-in-his-loafers vampire, for example, made me cringe. Nevertheless, I think that True Blood is off to a terrific start and has a chance to be as good as Six Feet Under was.
Anna Paquin's Sookie is wonderful, sexy, vulnerable, and weird. I also like Stephen Moyer as the gentleman vampire, Bill Compton. That southern accent should be bottled in bond. Lizzy Caplan as Amy is intriguing, too. I look forward to learning how her story plays out.
