Could You Not, True Blood?

| Filed under: TV News50 Cent

wenn2403344tb__opt1.jpg

If you really look at what sets True Blood apart from all the other effin vampire shows out there, there really is only one key thing: Sex!

Seksi sex with very naked people in very graphic ways. These are the benefits of being vampires on HBO, but take that away and all you have is Twilight minus the sparkling.

And that's exactly what's about to happen when the show moves to basic cable!

Sources are confimring that HBO is shopping the show around to cable providers to rebroadcast reruns just like the Sopranos and Sex & The City did.

Yeah, didn't work for them! Not gonna work for Vampire Bill!

There haven't been any takers yet, but that won't be a problem. The show is the highest rated in HBO history. TBS is sure to want that on it's lineup!

Will U watch True Blood on cable?

    It obviously comes down to making moneyyyyy but they should keep it on HBO soley where it can stay kinnkyyyy and hot

    I'd watch without the sex. I don't have a problem with it though. The books aren't X-rated. The show is only that way to get ratings. The series would've been fine if they'd followed the books more.

    This show has nothing in common with Twilight , even without the sex. True Blood is well written, with excellent actors and great stories. Twilight is horrible, teenage romance novels brough to the screen with bad acting and bad stories. Once again Perez proves himself to be no brighter than an 11 year old girl.

    No way - won't watch on regular TV. I need True Blood the way it's meant to be seen!

    I WOULD IF I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER WAY—I HAVE HBO AND THE DVDS–SO CABLE WOULD BE MY LAST CHOICE

    You were just named one of Time magazine's top 5 most overrated blogs. LOL fail.

    Have you ever watched the show? Comparing it to Twilight just shows that you have no idea what the fuck you are talking about. The True Blood novels came out at least three years before Twilight. How Stephnie Myer didn't get sued for plagerism is beyond me.

    There is so much more to True Blood than sex. The Twilight film series has never had me at the edge of my seat craving more. True Blood does this every episode.

    Re: Scahootowl – SO TRUE!!



  9. 9

    True Blood is better than Twilight even without the sex scenes. The script writers and the original books are well written. Not mention, the acting is superior.



  10. 10

    Don't get me wrong…. I LOVE the show as it is - but without the sex and nudity, will it only be a half hour program on regular cable??



  11. 11

    If I can't see Erik's ass, I don't wanna see it.



  12. 12

    Leave it the way it is. Right now I am getting the shows on DVD. My sis works for….So no problem there.



  13. 13

    why watch it on cable..when i can watch it on HBO…

    Re: James Dean – Have you read the books, because there are very x-rated scenes in the books. Granted they aren't involving anyone other than Sookie and a partner because the books are all from her point of view, but there is definitely sex in those books.



  15. 15

    True blood is amazing, the sex scenes are not what makes it amazing. Itd be neat if I could watch it with my grandma lol



  16. 16

    Oh, Perez can see into the future now and predict if True Blood will make it on regular cable. You are an idiot! Sex & the City & the Soprano's do **Extremely** well on TBS & A&E. Do your research before posting crap. AFTR, a lot of people would love to watch True Blood without the sex & a lot of blood…that's just how some people are.

    Yea, I'd watch it on cable but im really curious how exactly their gonna do that. I mean The manead episodes are just SEX SEX SEX. And bunches of nudity… and the show is NOTHING like Twilight Perez. Dont even compare the two! I mean honestly..



  18. 18

    i dnt understand why half you people are on this site it seems like some don't like perez so WHY be on his site
    oh and i would not watch it without the sex

    Re: Jaded

    Every one but the most recent. :)

    Yeah there's sex but I wouldn't describe the books as R rated at all. They could all be done PG-13 style and still be very well done. The sex is intensified for the HBO audience and ratings.



  20. 20

    how did it not work for sex and the city? they still air reruns on basic cable…



  21. 21

    NOPE, without nudity and violence it would not be the same



  22. 22

    I watch nothing that has been edited!!! It's always a butcher job! Rent/buy the DVDs instead - True Blood or anything else - movies OR TV shows!



  23. 23

    Pshft! True Blood is my all time favourite show :) The over the top sex does get to be a little too much, but Eric Northman can ravage me any day.



  24. 24

    How is that even going to be able to happen? I mean half of season one was Jason screwing someone in every other scene.
    And then the whole end of season 2 with Maryanne's orgies… what are they going to do with THAT?

    Re: tinkerbell42

    so true, if they edit it, will lose the soul, of course, we are writing about a main stream tv show, based on main stream teenage books, but is very good, and all the fans only became fans of the show, because of the entire package, including myself, i also don't feel amused by media butchering….
    but even if you take all the xxx rated content, you still will have a decent work, that wouldn't be at the same LAME level that twerplight saga-ga, those books are virginal and kind of sweet, but the movies are to throw up for….LAME LAME LAME LAME!



  26. 26

    they could be wearing turtlenecks and still be hotter than twilight perez!

    but no, i wouldn't watch a santized version of True Blood b/c that's stupid…i want to see naked Eric, Bill, and Sam…you see Sam's naked ass every episode, they just come up with excuses to turn him into a dog just to flash him bum.

    and now that we got HAWT as HELL Alcide, more naked boy bum please!



  27. 27

    To xompare it to Twilight is insane. The acting and storylines are so much better.

    I dont think sex is the onle difference they actually have a great story line and unlike the other vamp shit u see theres seems real. other shows are either to sweet or to bloody just cant conect with but i do agree to leave it on HBO i think they have alot more they can do on there rather then having to be censored somewhere else!

    I've got S01 and S02 on Bluray and I watch it weekly in HD on HBO… why would I want to watch it on regular cable? If I can't see Eric's ass in HD, I don't wanna see it at all.



  30. 30

    True Blood was before Twilight, books and tv series. The comparison is irrelevant because they are completely different animals. I have HBO, so i really don't care how they sell the show. Plus this show is already airing in Canada on the Space channel unedited.



  31. 31

    no way



  32. 32

    True Blood is just like a glorified porn. If you take away the sex, you take away the reason for watching it. The acting isn't that great and the characters are too trashy to be taken seriously. It would be like Buffy… though maybe even work.

    Whenever Bill shouts out "sookie" my boyfriend and I always laugh. It sounds so silly… but it seems like the show doesn't take itself that seriously… they have know it's all about how graphic it is.



  33. 33

    Everything about this article is 100% stupid Perez. First off, the new episodes will be on HBO so its not like youre being forced to watch PG rated true blood. Ok and second, comparing True Blood to Twilight with sex being the only difference is just a lack of understanding and intelligence on your part.



  34. 34

    yes i would watch. the sex isn't what makes the show your fucking moron. twilight is gay true blood is boss!!



  35. 35

    Absolutely! Read the books, love the show!



  36. 36

    Re: James Dean – I agree. The books were awesome.



  37. 37

    i'd watch my viking vampire lover anywhere ;)



  38. 38

    Nope. No way. Not ever. It's HBO or nothing! They tried doing that with the first season of Dexter too, and it sucked big time.



  39. 39

    First of all, F$&K YOU for comparing it to Twilight, even without the sex, it's a million times better!
    I'd still watch it over and over again because it's that good!
    BUT HBO better NOT change anything they're doing! I've read the books and I love the way they've tweeked the story line in the show.



  40. 40

    i wll not watch it if it s rated, that is for sure!!!!



  41. 41

    WHOOO!
    i can FINALLY watch it on TV!

    but that is sad. HBO is fearless of putting anything on.
