I do miss True Blood!
At a certain time in my TV world it was the best thing on the box. Eric, Sookie, Bill……the chemistry between all the cast in the early years was magnificent and while many say the reason the wheels came off is because the writers moved away from the books it was based on, I believe it was more to do with Alan Ball deciding to leave the show he brilliantly created after Season 4. Once his departed, the rot set in and the last two seasons were beyond awful.
Lets see if Midnight Texas can bring a bit of the magic back then. A show being described as a sister show to True Blood, in that its set in the same universe and once again its based on the books by Charlaine Harris.
Here is the synopsis and to be honest, the trailer also makes this worth a look. The show will air in the summer.
Midnight, Texas” stars François Arnaud (The Borgias) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of the local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets, having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah); Creek, an aspiring writer with big dreams (Sarah Ramos) and Rev. Emilio Sheehan, who can’t resist the pull of a full moon (Yul Vazquez).
