Is anyone watching this HBO series? I watched the first two episodes last night with some girlfriends, while scarfing down red wine, brie and salmon spread. With no men or children in the house. And with a dog snuggling next to me. Does it get better than that?
First, let's get this out of the way. Vampire Bill? Hot.
Being the only non-native PNW'er in the group, and having lived in New Orleans from birth to age 30-something, it fell upon me to point out all accurate and inaccurate
portrayals of Louisiana in the program.
True: The sleeveless tee-shirt is alive and well, sadly.
False: People in Louisiana do not speak with a sugary-sweet southern accent. Louisiana has an accent all its own.
True: Even "nice girls" wear short shorts and even shorter dresses. Looking a tiny bit slutty is totally acceptable in most all social circles.
False: A black gay male can be popular and have friends. Um, sorry, but not hardly. The south is still intolerant.
True: While the name is not the same (Descendants of the Glorious Dead), grandmas do still belong to "The Daughters of the Revolution" and other Confederate-loyal civil war societies.
Also, who knew vampires were so horny? There is more sex than blood sucking going on.
Are we the only people watching this show?
