Plus if it wasn't for Charlaine Harris, I would never had so much fun reading all these books. She started me on that road.
Can't wait for this show to start.
Did you read the Sookie Stackhouse? If so, I would like for the character that I think was left out in, True Blood, to make his appearance in this TV series, like he does in this book series.

It's funny, I typically don't like the horror genre, and am not a big fan of monsters and creatures, but True Blood was so well done, I watched it from S1E1 to the end. A great story, well-written, good actors, etc, can make almost anything fun to watch.

Looking forward to trying M,T.

I'll check out the show since it's set in the same universe as the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries (True Blood). But I also share a previous poster's concern about the show appearing on NBC, which will likely water-down the content. I would have preferred one of the cable networks like AMC or FX to show it.

Maybe NBC is showing it because it doesn't want to make a mistake by passing on a possible hit show like they did with The Walking Dead.

Could you or would you describe this as a ghost whisperer type tv show ? just wondering because I overheard someone describing it as that ? I'm just wondering if it is worth my time watching it ?

Yes, I liked the Sookie Stackhouse series of books. Also enjoyed True Blood, but missed the last two or three seasons since we gave up Netflix a couple of years ago due to bad pricing for what we got.

I bet your local library has the whole True Blood series on DVD, and if they don't, you can ask them to order it.

Well, the "Midnight, Texas" series of books (three of them so far) is really pretty far out and not even close to "the ghost whisperer", so if the show sticks anywhere close to the books there will be a fair amount of violence, gore, fantasy, and sex - at least as much as can be shown on network television. I sure wish the show had been done on HBO instead; they could have really done the books real justice!
