Ready for the First Look

HBO is giving fans a chance to watch the second
episode of TRUE BLOOD season 4, a full week early by logging on to
HBO GO from their desktop, iPad or smartphone. Beginning on SUNDAY,
JUNE 26, episode 2, entitled, "You Smell Like Dinner," will become
available on HBO GO immediately following the season 4 premiere
episode which debuts on the main HBO channel at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Episode 2 will remain on the HBO GO service throughout the week

Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, TRUE
BLOOD takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have

synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional
source. The series follows the on-and-off romance between waitress and
part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people's
thoughts, and 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Alan
Ball (creator of the Emmy-winning HBO series "Six Feet Under")
created and executive produces the show, which is based on the
bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

HBO GO is only accessible in the US and certain US

They did it! They made a documentary on a bunch of vampires!

A family of vampires, bored with immortality, lives in Belgium, eats
illegal immigrants, children, handicapped folk, and takes every
advantage they can suck out of the country's social system.

Samson, a seventies throwback, lives his 55th year like he's forever
20. Grace, an eternal teenager bent on being human again, keeps
committing suicide. George, the patriarch, manages as best he can,
heading the eccentric family and its on-going squabbles with the
neighboring vampires.

It turns out vampires must keep to a strict code. They are, for
example, prohibited from sleeping with their leader's wife. That's
where Samson went too far... Now he and his whole family are exiled to
Quebec, where even vampires have to work for a living!

A fresh, biting comedy from Vincent Lannoo!

Watch Dexter Before It's Gone

I appreciate the guest post, Ethan Madden

It's not every day that a show makes the criminal look like the good guy, but Dexter definitely does it well. There aren't many shows that I watch on the premium channels on my TV, but Dexter is something I can't miss. Showtime really nailed it with this program, and I often wonder why it hasn't been done before now. I don't know what it is about the show, but serial killers have always interested me. In this case, the serial killer is right under everyone's nose and they are basically clueless.

The most interesting thing about Dexter is that he only kills other killers; he doesn't target innocent people like most serial killers. He witnessed the brutal murder of his mother when he was young, which is one reason he has resorted to murder. He lives by something called “The Code of Harry,” which are basically rules handed down by his adoptive father to ensure he never gets caught for killing others. He often questions the need to kill because of the bond he has with his adoptive sister and his wife and stepchildren. If you haven't seen this show yet, make sure you do before it disappears.
