Had the day off today but was recovering from a cold so decided to spend it doing as little as possible. The weather obliged in assisting with this by being rainy and cold so I spent a lot of time in front of the TV. I'd caught a few minutes of the latest series of True Blood on TV earlier in the week and decided maybe it was time to try watching it again so I rented the first series, thinking that at least this way I could skip all the sex and nudity (I love, love, LOVE the book series and was looking forward to the show until I watched the first ten minutes of the first episode. Then I turned it off in a hurry).
I also decided I would work on my own DVD backlog, which reminded me I hadn't even checked the second season of Forever Knight I picked up last year. So I watched a couple of episodes of that too.
After comparing the first two episodes of True Blood to the first two episodes of S2 Forever Knight I am STUNNED at how much better Forever Knight is. It's been a long time since I watched it, so I'd forgotten how good it was and how much I enjoyed it. It's just... better. The characters are better. The plotlines are better. The frigging vampire effects are better (even the terribly lame "flying" scenes).
