True-ly Obsessed

In the previous post, I mentioned that I have lots of good tv to watch and cannot be bothered with eating, showering, sleeping stripping my french doors any further.  One of the best shows I've started watching this year is True Blood.  This show (and the brilliant Dexter) is the reason I renounced my usual frugalality and decided to spring for the Showtime, HBO and Cinemax bundle.  I have never purchased premium channels in my life, but I couldn't bear the thought of waiting for the second season of True Blood and fourth season of Dexter to come out on DVD.  I had purchased season one of both these shows on a whim based on buzz, and I am so happy I did because they both make me laugh, scream, cringe, and puke in my mouth a little flush with excitement in each and every episode.  How amazing is a show that spans your emotions like that??  The second season of True Blood was watched 'on demand' in little more than a week and it was dee-vine.  We are currently enjoying Dexter's fourth season and it is also delicious.  Jury is still out on whether I will keep these channels after Dexter wraps in a couple months....we'll see.  You have to see these shows!!! 

ps - is it bad that my two favorite shows are really violent?

Love both these shows! Although I don't have showtime or hbo, so I am a little behind. I have read all the Sookie books, and just started reading the first Dexter book.
